The Diet for Healthier Skin

Diet for Healthier SkinAre you jealous of the women out there who seem to have natural, glowing, dewy skin? I know I have certainly felt that way at times in my life. While other women seem to have blemish free clear, hydrated skin, I often struggled with my combination skin and trying to understand how to keep my skin looking its best. When my skin was dry I’d hydrate, but then I would wind up with blemishes galore. I could never seem to get the right balance.

Interestingly, it took a better understanding of what I was putting in my body (instead of the makeup I was putting on my skin) to understand how to make my skin healthier.

While there are great products out there to help your skin look its best, it is even more important to eat the right foods to keep your skin looking good. And a combination of eating right with these great skin care products will work wonders for your skin, whatever your skin type may be.

Here are three easy to accomplish tips to help you have the best looking skin at any age.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

You’ve probably heard that foods that are high in Omega 3 fatty acids are great for your health. They are heart healthy which is a great feature, but what most people don’t realize is that these same foods are also great for your skin. They limit inflammation and redness. Try to incorporate nuts, fresh salmon, and seeds into your diet to make sure you’re getting the recommended Omega 3’s in your diet. You can also choose a supplement high in Omega 3 fatty acids to assist you if you have a hard time getting these kinds of foods naturally into your diet.

H20 and Green Tea

Good old water- were you aware that it can help your skin stay hydrated as well? Because water eliminates harmful toxins from your body, the top layer of your skin will also be clearer. Besides eliminating the toxins from your body, your liver will function better which helps to promote healthy skin. And staying properly hydrated will help avoid problems with dryness that so many women suffer from.

If you can’t stand drinking plain water, aim to drink green tea several times per day.
Why drink green tea?
Green tea contains EGCG or epigallocatechin gallate. EGCG can increase the rate of fat burn.
Green tea can target belly fat.
It can balance blood sugar and help provide consistent energy.

Organic Veggies and Fruits

Fruits and vegetables are full of the vitamins you need to stay healthy. These same vitamins assist your skin in looking its best. They have tons of antioxidants, so bulk up on berries, avocados, apples, pears, and every green leafy vegetable you can get your hands on.

These are just three of the many examples you can focus on to naturally improve your skin from the inside out. The better you eat, the better your skin will look. And similarly, the worse you eat- foods that are processed or that are high in fat or sodium- the more difficult you are making it for your body to maintain clear, youthful skin. So eat natural, organic foods while focusing on these three tips to be the woman that other women are jealous of.

    I’ve been a big proponent of water since I had a kidney stone attack several years back. Water does so much good for our bodies. Squeeze a little lemon juice in and you’re set. I’ve noticed a big difference in my skin tone since I kicked the soft drink and weekend cocktail habit.

    Omega 3, Green Tea and Organic fruits and veggies are undoubtedly a great resources to keep your skin in a better condition. I have heard that applying green tea on skin early in the morning give great results and is one of the best natural skin toners.

    A healthy skin is a dream of every woman. If you are not lucky enough to have a great skin, inclusion of a lot of fruits and green and leafy veggies is really important to keep it in a better health. Obviously, drinking around 10-12 glasses of water in a day will improve the skin condition. I really like the article, as it provides some great information on a healthier skin and believe me green tea, organic food and omega 3 fatty acids have great affect on our skin and health.

    I think in general just being fat makes your skin horrible. You get more pimples and you also have to worry about stretch marks, even though you’re not pregnant. Well, you’re sort of pregnant with food in your stomach lol and you give birth every day through your bum lmao. Anyways, I believe healthy skin and fit body go hand in hand and there’s no way around it. Either you lose weight or you keep your ugly skin.

  5. Green Tea and those omega 3 fatty acids work wonders for skin and they’re easily accessible. I try and take my omega 3′s everyday.

  6. This is one thing that people I know cannot believe is that your diet as A LOT to do with you skin. Good tips here!

    No one told me about Omega 3 w.r.t. skin ..

    I know they are good for heart .. but for skin too?? cool!!!

    No redness, Less inflammation => half my problems solved ..

  8. Hi,

    nice tips ..they are bound to help you for sure… I was wondering, if these tips are in general or have any particular functionality like cleaning pores / detoxifying / moisturising / on black heads??

    Most of the women are worried about their skin and obesity. Exteme low fat diets are not useful. I have found myself that Omega 3 fatty acids have a positive impact in our health. Its sound too good to be true and really it works. It is the healthiest fat which can consume.

  10. I gave up on trying transform my skin into something that it will never be. Bad skin is in my gene and I get it from my mother, as does she from her mother. I’ve tried everything in all of my 20′s to make skin softer and blemish free, but I didn’t see much of a positive result. Now I just try to maintain what I have and not let it get worse. Adding fresh fruit and vegetable to your diet is very important if you have bad skin like me, but just don’t expect miracles to happen with anything. Reasonable expectation and continuous care of your skin is the best way to have healthier skin.

  11. Yep~ I’ve heard of some great things about omega 3 fatty acids and green teas, although I think weight problem has a lot do with your skin as well. I’m a little overweight right now and I’ve been noticing that I get a lot more pimples on my skin than I used to when I was skinny. But a combination of healthy diet with veggie and fruit and by making it a habit to drink green tea all the time should help a lot with having healthier skin and with losing weight.

  12. I drink Green Tea religiously and I can honestly say it really does improve the skin. I’ve been drinking since senior year in high school in 2008 (I had a bit of a bad skin case in HS) but over the years my skin has cleared up so I can attest to Green Tea does improve skin.

  13. Omega 3 Fatty Acids are amazing for the skin. I just got hip to this about a year ago and my skin has drastically improved. I couldn’t be any happier. Bravo on this amazing and informative article. I never thought of using Green Tea but I’m keen to try it now!
