Nourishing Foods for Optimal Skin Care

on 04/15/2014 - 01:47 pm

Besides the pleasure of growing your own fruits and vegetables, picking these goodies from your own garden can provide added benefits. Packed with vitamins and nutrients that support your overall health, these foods contribute to a well-balanced diet, which can boost your energy and appearance. As another bonus, some even use fruits and vegetables for special facial treatments, which can also make your skin glow! 

According to Lawrence E. Gibson, M.D., at the Mayo Clinic, “Research on the best foods for healthy skin is limited. Still, antioxidant-rich foods seem to have a protective effect for the skin.”

Are you wondering, “What are the best foods for healthy skin?” Dr. Gibson identifies the following as “skin-friendly foods”:

  • Carrots, apricots as well as other yellow and orange fruits and vegetables
  • Spinach and other green leafy vegetables
  • Tomatoes
  • Blueberries
  • Beans, peas and lentils
  • Salmon, mackerel and other fatty fish
  • Nuts

 

On the other hand, Dr. Gibson notes that certain foods are associated with skin damage. In particular, studies have shown that diets high in processed or refined carbohydrates and unhealthy fats lead to aging skin. Consequently, he recommends selecting low-fat or fat-free dairy products and whole-grain breads and pasta.

For added health and skin benefits, he suggests eating nuts, seeds and beans. When you have the munchies, you can turn to these nourishing foods as a satisfying snack or slip them into a fresh salad. By limiting sweets and varying healthy choices such as oranges and blueberries, you’ll feel and look better!

After you’ve taken these steps to boost your health, an experienced and trained professional can offer the most effective facial treatments and skin care regimen. With professional make up and make up lessons, you can find ways to create a natural but completely healthy look.

Would you like to give your eyes a brighter and more open appearance—even when you’re running on just a few hours of sleep? Do you need help with proper eyebrow shaping to frame your eyes and balance your other features? Are you searching for the most natural ways to hide dark circles under your eyes?

If you see raccoon eyes every time you look in the mirror, a professional make up artist can lighten your deeply exhausted look with special techniques. After a few make up lessons, you can continue to follow these tips, eat well and get enough sleep to reveal the picture of good health!

Have you noticed a difference in the appearance of your skin after eating more fruits and vegetables? Did you ever use these foods in facial treatments, and what were the results? Which ones do you pick from your own garden and integrate into your regular skin care routine?
