22 Oct How diet can affect your skin?
If you care about your skin just as much we do then it is important to understand how diet affects your skin. A healthy diet may provide you with clearer skin, but it may even prevent skin cancers like melanoma or carcinoma. Continue reading to learn more about diet and your skin’s health.
Your diet can affect moisture levels.
Drinking water is one of the healthiest habits you can have for your skin and your entire body. When you drink plenty of water throughout the day, you are providing your inner organs and your skin—the largest organ of your body—with moisture that has been lost through sweat and other natural processes.
Your diet can affect your wrinkles.
When you eat certain foods with healthy oils and omega-3 fatty acids, you can greatly impact the health of your skin. These oils and fats can be found in fish, nuts, olive oil, and many more foods. By consuming these oily foods on a regular basis, along with healthy proteins, you can help the collagen production in your skin. By increasing your skin’s collagen production, your skin will be smoother and suppler, which will help prevent premature wrinkles and skin sagging.
Your diet can prevent melanoma.
Melanoma is a dangerous form of skin cancer which often occurs from severe sun damage and lack of protective clothing and sunscreen. However, many foods can potentially help prevent you from contracting melanoma. Heart-healthy diets, complete with fish and leafy greens, have been found to protect your skin best from melanoma.
Your diet can affect blemishes.
Acne and acne scarring has long been a concern for people, and it is unclear exactly what foods may or may not affect how your skin develops acne. However, it is best to stay away from sugary and high-fat foods and drinks, which may contribute to increased blemishes.
