Beautiful skin

27/03/2013

Most of us strive for beautiful skin.  We can influence our skin health with a balanced diet, that’s good news.  Add in a good skin care regime and we are on our way to better looking skin.  It is after all the largest organ of the human body.

Our skin requires vitamins A, C, D and E, zinc, essential fats and and good hydration to thrive.

A typical meal to support your skin might look something like this:

Oily fish, with watercress and sundried tomatoes,  cooked organic brown rice, poached egg and salad dressing made with extra virgin olive oil and some tomato paste, add a few raspberries and serve with a lovely glass of  ice cold filtered water with freshly squeezed lemon and lime.

Negative dietary intakes include refined sugar, processed fats and meat, deep fried food and burnt or barbecued food.

Smoking, over exposure to the sun are two of the most aging activities to the skin.  Mineral oils should also be avoided as these are aging.
