You have a perfect beauty routine and yet you still have skin problems? Maybe you need to rethink your diet… But what should you eat to have beautiful skin?
Une belle peau nécessite d’en prendre soin avec des produits cosmétiques, mais aussi grâce à une alimentation saine. Alors voici nos petits secrets pour prendre soin de ta peau grâce à ce que tu manges.
At the end of this article, we’ll give you somecool meal ideas to keep your skin beautiful !
For perfectly hydrated skin
Ta peau est déshydratée lorsqu’elle manque d’eau et de bonnes graisses. Une peau sèche favorise l’apparition d’impuretés. Pense à boire au minimum 1,5 L d’eau par jour. You should also eat foods containing Omega 3.
These are essential fatty acids to keep your body hydrated. We recommend that you eat the following foods:
- Fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines …)
- Olive oil
- Walnut oil
For a radiant skin
Our first tip for a glowing complexion is to drink lots ofwater! Yes … we know, we’re a pain with water … but I promise it works! You can also drink green tea, it provides polyphenols that will make your skin glow.
Eat vitamin-rich foods such as fruit and vegetables. It is recommended that you eat raw or steamed vegetables so that they retain all their vitamins. You can also eat dried fruit, which provides the skin with very good trace elements. However, avoid bad fats and processed foods.
Foods to ABSOLUTELY AVOID:
- Fast Food
- Products that are too salty
- Processed products (industrial cakes, sweets, …)
- Soft drinks
For pimple-free skin
Acne can be caused by many things, but a good diet can help to limit the appearance of pimples. This can be achieved by reducing or eliminating certain types of food.
Avoid consuming fast sugars (industrial cakes, white flour-based foods, sodas, sweets, etc.). High sugar consumption leads to a high production of sebum which cannot be eliminated. As a result, pimples will appear. It is also necessary to reduce dairy products, as they promote skin inflammation.
We recommend that you privilege the following foods:
- eggs (the best source of protein there is)
- wholemeal bread
- red meat (OCCASIONALLY! Rich in zinc to avoid overproduction of sebum)
- whole grains
- green vegetables(for the right nutrients essential for a good balance)
- green tea
- red fruits (rich in antioxidants!)
For wrinkle-free skin
Oxidative stress is one of the main factors in skin ageing. Applying antioxidant and anti-wrinkle creams is necessary to protect your skin. But an antioxidant diet also protects your skin from premature ageing. Red fruits are excellent antioxidants!
To keep your skin fresh and wrinkle-free for as long as possible, eat fruits and vegetables with antioxidant properties. They will counteract the ageing effects of free radicals. Therefore, choose foods that are rich in :
- In vitamin A, they protect against UVA (carrot, pumpkin, melon …),
- In vitamin E, antioxidants par excellence, they fight against cell ageing (olive oil to other vegetable oils, oleaginousx…),
- In vitamin B, they repair tissues (dried fruit, green vegetables…).
- In collagen to produce elastin, responsible for the youthful appearance of the skin
For a firm skin
Your skin can lose firmness and elasticity when it lacks collagen. To avoid this loss of firmness, eat foods that promote collagen production such as:
- Protein-rich foods
- Red peppers
- Bone broth (one of the most effective!)
Also include foods with a high vitamin C content in your diet, which will help stabilise collagen. So eat as much citrus as you like!
