Good Food For The Skin
Our skin needs to be nourished as well as other organs in the body and some foods are really great for giving that vital nutrition. Some examples of good food for the skin are usually those oily types like avocado or salmon. But not only that. All foods high in vitamins are also very important for the skin as well as foods rich in omega 3, 6 and 9. Or foods that have plenty of collagen in them can really benefit people with mature skin where collagen and elasticity levels have dipped leaving the skin a little flaccid.
Important Foods Containing Vitamins And Minerals Vital For The Skin
Important foods containing those vital vitamins are:-
Citrus fruits, strawberries, leafy greens, peppers
Milk, eggs, tomatoes, peppers, fish
Wheatgerm, almonds, peanuts, leafy greens
Cod liver oil, salmon, tuna, sardines, beef liver
OMEGA 3 AND 6
Fatty fish, such as salmon, trout or mackerel, tofu, soy beans, walnuts
Fish, poultry, beef, soup made with beef or pork bones, eggs, dairy, pulses
WE ARE WHAT WE EAT
I'm a great believer in this saying; we are what we eat. What we eat shows through our skin, which is one of the largest organs in the body. If we eat crappy food, our skin will look likewise but if we get all the necessary vitamins and minerals into our diet, that will show in the form of healthy glowing skin. It will come out in every pore, it will shine through. Plus all our other organs will be functioning well and that, in turn, will give us vitality.
