Diet Role for Healthy Skin

by Sharon Hopkins

In order to have and maintain healthy skin, diet plays a significant role. However, it is good to be aware that diet alone is not enough to keep your skin looking good and fresh. It is also important to have a good lifestyle along with good skin care practices which will collectively be useful in keeping skin looking and feeling fresh and healthy on a permanent basis. Remember that the skin is a mirror of the way your general health is on any given day. One of the most significant dietary changes you would have to make is to stay off from excessively oily, and particularly fried food. Oily food has a habit of showing up on the face as oily patches as well as an oily T-Zone. Food that is considered to impart heat is also best stayed away from. This would include "hot" foods such as red meat and alcohol. Not that you need to give up on these things, but they can certainly be consumed in moderation in order to help keep skin looking and feeling fresh and free of acne, rashes, blemishes and so on. Or instance, limit meat and alcohol intake to a couple of days a week, and try to stick to this number. The more of fresh, uncooked and unprocessed food you add to your diet, the better off you will be in terms of having healthy skin. Lots of fresh fruit and green leafy vegetables can be a good addition to your daily diet and will further the cause of good skin.

Apart from this, it is very important to drink an adequate amount of water on a daily basis. Dehydration can be a serious problem and will contribute largely to unhealthy and unattractive looking skin. At least 1 to 2 liters of water should be consumed everyday. Not only the skin, but the rest of your body will also be in really healthy shape if you drink that much water each day. Exercise is another really good way to keep your skin clean. Exercise gets the circulation going and thereby lends a healthy glow to the skin. Apart from this, exercising also opens up the pore and makes you sweat, which is always a good way to help the skin to breathe better. Try to get in at least about half an hour of exercise daily. It is also important to cleanse and moisturize your skin on a regular basis in order to keep it healthy.
