The Best Tips for Pure Skin – Nutrition & Lifestyle
Some time ago I showed you in this post my skincare routine with Avene. After I dropped the pill, my skin started to become very dirty and a visit to the dermatologist brought me to the Avene care series. In the meantime, I have continued to deal with the subject of pure skin and skin care and have done a lot of research. Some products have been preserved, others have been replaced and replaced – there will soon be a detailed review. In addition, other factors have found out for me, which have an impact on my skin and there is today a small skin care update.
As a disclaimer in advance: It all works for me. Each one of us is different and each one has different products and dietary habits. It is always important to find out for yourself, what works well and especially with such sensitive topics as dietary supplements, I think own research is essential. So, now go with my tips!😉
Diet for pure skin
In the first place in terms of skin is always the diet. Of course, what we supply to our body has an immediate impact on how it manifests to the outside world. The skin is often a mirror of what we eat every day.
My nutritional tips for problem skin
- Drink enough water ! One of the most important factors for healthy and glowing skin is moisture. Of course, this can and should be applied to the skin via appropriate care, but adequate care from the inside is already half the battle. It’s best to start with a large glass of lemon juice every day.
- Give up white white sugar – as good as possible. Sugar is poison for the skin and who has ever waived it for a while, which can certainly confirm a positive effect – not just on the skin. There are now so many alternatives that have been proven to have no negative effect on health, that it is best to banish ordinary white sugar from your household.
- The same applies to wheat . Those who suffer from bad skin should dare to give it up and resort instead to the so-called pseudo-cereals such as quinoa, amaranth or millet. There are many more nutrients, vitamins and trace elements that can have a positive effect on the skin.
- Milk and dairy products are also foods that can have very bad effects on the skin. Milk is the mother’s milk for calves and not for humans. It is – logically – full of (growth) hormones that make small calves grow fast. Of course, this hormone cocktail affects us humans when we consume milk. You should be clear about this and pay attention to this when choosing your food. There are now a thousand sensible alternatives that often taste much better and are also better for the skin.
- Be sure to include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Especially green (leaf) vegetables are good for pure skin. The best way to integrate it in the form of smoothies and green juices .
If you think you can do everything right when it comes to nutrition and still do not do much on your skin, it makes sense to think about supplements. There are a few dietary supplements that I’ve encountered again and again in my research and which I take myself when I feel that a clean diet just is not enough.
- Maca – the powder is extracted from a root and is one of the so-called super-foods. Even though I tend to be skeptical of the topic of the overpriced Percheron and instead prefer to think of domestic foods that can have just as high density of nutrients, I actually make an exception on Maca. Maca has a positive effect on our energy balance and can provide more efficiency, especially in stressful times. Even more important, however, is that maca positively influences our hormone balance. Impure skin is very often associated with a disruption of hormones – this is where super food comes in. Especially for women, the powder is a real miracle weapon, it ensures cleaner skin, relieves symptoms and can also have a positive effect on the menopause.
- Furthermore, the trace element zinc has a positive effect on the appearance of the skin. An appropriate supplement should be considered if the skin does what it wants.
- Vitamin B5 , also called pantheistic acid, also appears again and again, if one deals with the topic of skin and nutrients. It reduces the sebum production of the skin through the regulation of hormones and fatty acids. This in turn reduces pimples and refines pores.
Lifestyle tips for pure skin
In addition to the right diet, other factors have an influence on the appearance of the skin.
- Stress is poison for the skin. I always feel that special. As soon as my skin has calmed down, the next stressful phase comes and overnight, impurities and pimples spread. Stress can not always be avoided and is part of life. But it is important that this condition does not last for a long time and that you can compensate.
- This balance can best be achieved with sports . A good workout will not only make you sweat, but it will also do the skin good. The blood is pumped through the body, the lymph working at full speed and that in turn ensures the elimination of toxins from the body. In addition, the body is optimally supplied with oxygen during exertion, which also has a positive effect on the skin. When doing sports but necessarily make the hair off the face. Sweat and hair sticking to the face are not necessarily beneficial to clean skin.
- Sounds boring, but sufficient sleep is essential for a radiant complexion. Not only the dark circles are getting smaller, also impurities have a harder time, when the skin regenerates itself during sleep.
- Wash and change your linens and towels regularly. The materials come in contact with our facial skin several times a day and it is very important to make sure that both are always fresh and clean.
