Skin problems can become such a headache at times. It seems if you have some sort of skin issues, we run out to find a quick fix, which in turn costs hundreds of dollars later , with no real positive action to the skin. To me, the best medicine for the skin is in the foods we eat. We all know that sugar intake does not help the skin in any way. It wreaks havoc on our skin honestly. Certain allergens can also cause breakouts, as well as hormone fluctuations. Aside from that, we can put good healthy foods in our systems to help fight skin irritations and blemishes.
Did you know that Berries are loaded with so many antioxidants? I feel the more berries we eat, the better.They help to manage our blood sugar levels and keep them stable. Many times, rises in blood sugar can cause skin irritations. To maintain skin health, adding the antioxidants from berries can help your skin from the inside out.
Nuts are loaded up with the amazing zinc. Zinc has long known to be an amazing vitamin that helps our immune system. They can help to increase white blood cell protection and is amazing for our skin. Just adding some nuts to your yogurt is a great way to add them to your diet. I love to add nuts to my stir frys and smoothies. They are extra protection not only to our immunity but to our skin health.
Fish isn’t everyone’s favorite, but I can tell you they are loaded up with great omega 3’s and those omegas are great for skin health. The Omega 3 Fatty acids are vital for oil production. If you feel that fish isn’t your cup of tea, you can always supplement with a oral vitamin of some sort. I try to aim for fish two to three times weekly.
Green Tea is my cup of tea. My family always ask me if I get sick of drinking it and NO I don’t. It is loaded with so many antioxidants and is great for skin health and your immunity. I drink on average 2-3 cups of solid green tea daily, and add in my lemon. I also add in some ACV if I’m drinking it in the morning . It is a powerful drink for your skin, and it will show through.
The Best way you can see if any of this works for you, or helps with your skin irritations, try to incorporate it into your daily diet, and give it two weeks to see if you see a difference. I think you will be surprised by how much it will help regulate your skin.
