Importance of Food For Glowing Skin

‘You are what you eat’, a statement you are sure to have heard several times. But what does it really mean? If you’ve ever visited a dermatologist, then you’ll know that their first question primarily revolves around your diet, especially if you’re there with concerns related to acne breakouts. And there’s a perfectly good reason for that.
We all want healthy-looking, glowing skin, but no amount of skin care products can help you with that if you’re not eating right. Which is why we’re here to let you in on how your everyday diet affects your skin and which foods are your skin’s best friend. So, let’s dive in!

  • Want that dewy looking skin? Start drinking enough water
  • More often than not, we are either too lazy to get up and drink water or just completely forget about it. But one of the healthiest habits you can have for your body, as well as your skin, is to drink enough water (read: a minimum of 8 glasses). Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and when you're getting enough water, you can see an evident change in the way it looks. So stay on top of your water intake for perfectly hydrated and healthy skin. 

  • Bid adieu to premature ageing by stocking up on these foods
  • Fish, nuts, olive oil and many other sources of healthy oils and Omega-3 fatty acids can positively impact the health of your skin. Eating these foods along with enough protein can help boost collagen production in your skin. By increasing your skin’s collagen production, your skin will look younger and suppler. 

  • Avoid these to prevent acne breakouts
  • Many skin experts suggest that junk food such as pizza, burgers, fries, and sugary drinks can increase the occurrence of acne and breakouts. Diets that include an intake of high-carbohydrate foods lead to inflammation which results in acne and pimples. So go easy on the carbs to go easy on your skin!

  • Make your plate a pretty rainbow
  • As you might have heard before, free radicals like pollution, smoking and sunlight can make your skin appear dull. This is why doctors recommend a colourful plate full of fresh vegetables and fruits to protect your skin from the cellular damage caused by these free radicals. 

  • Vitamin C is your skin’s best friend
  • A super antioxidant, Vitamin C promotes radiant skin and helps treat blemishes. The best sources of Vitamin C are oranges, papayas, strawberries, and sweet potatoes. Vitamin C is also essential for collagen production. So stock up on these fruits and watch your skin glow. 

  • Get your zinc in
  • Zinc is needed for the normal functioning of sebaceous glands in the skin and helps to repair skin damage to ensure it stays soft & supple. Some zinc-rich foods for you to include in your diet are fish, lean red meat, whole grains and nuts. 

    A diet filled with whole foods that are rich in several nutrients is the best for your skin. No matter what your skin care concerns are, a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains can never do you wrong. Of course, along with all of these factors, you need the best skin care products to complement your diet. Such as Enchanteur Charming Perfumed Shower Gel, which is packed with fragrance and the refreshing notes of rose to leave your skin feeling nourished and hydrated. 

    So there you have it, a combination of the right diet + a consistent skin routine is all you need to face any skin care problem that comes your way!
