    Food Tips That Address Specific Skincare Concerns
    [attachment=82]

    WHAT TO EAT


    WHAT TO AVOID


    BREAKOUTS


    Bright red and orange vegatables and fruits have
    beta carotene which your whole body converts to oil
    reducing Vitamin A. Green leafy vegetables contain
    vitamin B6 which minimizes swelling, so pimples
    are reduced.


    Iodine rich salt, shrimp and seaweed
    stimulate oil glands, inducing irritation of
    pores.


    WRINKLES


    Fruits abundant in color( like berries) have Vitamin
    "C" that assist to promote anti-aging, skin firming
    collagen and anti-oxidants. Orange seafood like
    salmon and lobster contain Astaxanthin, another
    potent anti-oxidant stronger than vitamin "C" and
    "E".


    Excess sugar! We must balance sugar intake
    because a lot of sugar could affect the skin,
    binding to collagen and elastin fibers,
    breaking down elasticity, leading to
    sagging skin


    DRY SKIN


    Drink a lot of water and eats foods with good fats
    (which can help to keep cell walls strong and
    prevent water loss) like avocado and extra virgin olive oil as
    well as citrus and kiwi( the potassium they contain
    regulates your bodys water levels). Cabbage has
    sulfur that can assist to prevent dry, irritated skin.


    Drinks like coffee and black tea dehydrate
    your internal tissues and skin. Most fried
    foods contain trans fats and hydrogenated
    oils which may often deplete amounts of good
    fats and may lead to dermititis.


    ROSACEA


    A characteristic of inflammation within the body, chronic
    rosacea often controlled by topical medication can
    also be managed when you eat calming foods for example
    fish, cucumbers and licorice. Turmeric seasoning,
    which gives curried dishes their marigold hue, is
    high in curcumin, a robust anti-oxidant and anti-
    inflammatory.


    Hot foods (in temperature and spiciness)
    alcohol and caffeine make veins
    swell so skin appears more red. Niacin rich
    peanuts can also increase flushing.
