- Categories : All Posts , Body Care , Facial Care , Most Read

Today we live in a society with many concerns, and among them are the issues of health and beauty to keep our skin healthy, smooth and without imperfections.

Perhaps you may have wondered why, despite applying daily skin care routines (morning and night cleansing and hydration, quality products, etc.), your skin does not look and feel the way you want.

Why are there women who continue to have acne in their 40s? Why does your skin look dull?

Get healthy skin thanks to food

Did you know…? Skin cells renew themselves every 28 days, which is why it is so important to always eat well.

The importance of nutrition is paramount, since we know that the skin is nourished from the inside, and an incorrect diet is reflected on the external appearance. This result is visible both on the skin, as well as on the hair and nails, and in general, on our entire body.

As we already know, our skin is the body's largest organ and is interconnected with the whole organism. Therefore, if we have liver problems or poor digestion, this will be reflected in the state of the health of the epidermis. On the other hand, if we have respiratory problems or food allergies, we will see skin problems such as psoriasis or eczema.

“A nourished body is the result of a healthy state of the skin”

Knowing how our skin works, it is time to pay attention to our daily diets and include healthy foods rich in vitamins and nutrients, to help and improve the health of our body and our skin.

We hace created a small guide so that you know all the benefits of a good diet.

Firm skin: Collagen and Elastin

Collagen and elastin are important to keep the skin firm and prevent sagging. To achieve this result, we would need to consume 2 servings of protein per day:

- Plant-based protein: chickpeas, quinoa, the combination of cereals with legumes or nuts.

- Animal protein: eggs, white meat (chicken, turkey, rabbit...), fish and dairy products (yogurt, milk, cheese...).

Wrinkle-free skin: Vitamin C

As we already know, vitamin C is a great antioxidant and a necessary nutrient to produce collagen.

We find vitamin C in:

- Citrus: lemons, grapefruit, oranges...

- Strawberries, tomatoes, apple, peach, apricot, pineapple, kiwi...

- Vegetables: broccoli, chard, asparagus, pepper...

Hydrated skin: Vitamin A and Beta Carotene

If your skin is dry, rough, cracked, with pimples and blackheads, it is due to a lack of vitamin A and beta-carotene in your body.

This is because vitamin A and beta-carotene have antioxidant properties and help protect you from internal and external toxic free radicals.

Vitamin A is present in:

- Whole milk: yogurt and goat kefir, eggs, whole milk...

- Fruits: melon and mango.

- Vegetables: green peas, red pepper, cabbage...
