Nutrients for Skin Care

by Shaun Damon

Good skin is a sign of good health and beauty. It also reflects that your care for your health and yourself is not just skin-deep. Having flawless skin is an eternal quest for most people, for which you need to bring about some changes in your routine and dietary habits. You should also begin exercise, meditation and get enough sleep. Do away with any foods that are loaded with empty calories and fats. Go natural and try eating a lot of fruits, vegetables and salads on a daily basis and try using natural home made preparations for your skin instead of commercial cosmetic products.

Have a healthy, balanced diet and adopt healthy and disciplined eating habits. A disciplined and regular eating schedule is in fact quite important. The best thing about these natural resources is that they can not only be relished as dietary ingredients but also turned into wonderful skin beautifying products that you can prepare at home. For the overall nutrition of skin, start applying ingredients like crushed avocado for their numerous virtues, beans for their anti-aging abilities, cucumber to keep your skin hydrated, peaches for their power to shield you from ultra violet rays, and lemon to bleach your skin naturally.

These and many more things will help you provide nutrition to your skin. For glowing facial skin, here are a few of the face packs that you can whip up. An effective face pack can be made with gram flour, a small pinch of turmeric and curd. Wash your face and apply the mixture. Let it dry and wash it off. You can also mash a banana and apply it on your face for noticeable results. Garlic and carrots are other valuable sources of nutrition that can help delay the effects of aging, hence make them a part of your daily diet. Multi vitamin and mineral supplements can also help, but it would be prudent to first consult your doctor, as an excess of certain vital nutrients can also give rise to unpleasant health conditions. Keep your skin well-moisturized by drinking plenty of water and fresh fruit juices while cutting down on coffee, tea, aerated drinks, alcohol, and so on, to prevent wrinkles. Apply honey on your face to moisturize your skin. Use only quality skin products like natural creams, and moisturizers. Some amount of physical activity is also essential so try and engage in Yoga, meditation, or at least light exercising and walking.
