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.
