With all the weather changes, it can be hard to control breakouts and dry skin. Keeping your skin healthy can go a long way in prevention. If you can make some simple diet changes, your skin will thank you by looking fresh and clear even when the weather conditions are not conducive.
If you have a sweet tooth, put down those candy bars and pick up some 70% or darker chocolate. It contains antioxidants that fight inflammation and can help with those pesky breakouts that regular chocolate can cause with all that extra sugar.
Cutting back on dairy products and replacing them with nut products, like nut milk and butters, can boost your Omega-3. Not to mention it moisturizes your skin, fights wrinkles, and lifts your mood. Nuts themselves also make a good healthy snack for kicking a case of the munchies.
Keep those vegetable oils out of the kitchen. Vegetable oils can actually inflame your skin whereas extra virgin olive oil is by far healthier for your skin because it contains antioxidants that can fight redness and inflammation of your skin.
Coffee is an integral part of almost every person’s morning routine! But just trading in one cup of coffee for green tea can really help your overall health and still gives you the energy you need to get the day started. Green tea is known to relieve oxidative stress, reduce acne flare ups and also has anti-aging properties. It’s worth sacrificing one cup of coffee!
Water is the best and most well known way to keep your skin hydrated. Cutting out sugary sodas and replacing them with water may not be the most attractive option, but the results are worth it.
These changes might seem overwhelming or hard to accomplish at first, but, if you commit to keeping your body and skin healthy, they will return the favor and serve you better and boost your confidence when you need it most!
