Good nutrition for your skin
Good nutrition is the key to great health and, as a rule, more luminous and healthy skin.
Avoid sugar, especially not in large quantities. The recommended daily dose is no more than 6 teaspoons a day (30 grams). This figure includes foods that contain sugar. The whole point is that when sugar is in excess, the body actively begins to produce insulin. This is needed to deliver glucose obtained from sugar to the blood. Insulin provokes increased production of the hormone testosterone, which actively begins to produce substances that lead to clogged pores in the skin. The increased content of this hormone has a provocative effect on the emergence of pathogenic bacteria in the body. The result is acne or in other words, acne. Some sweeteners are also recommended to be excluded from the diet, such as aspartame. Because of the “false signal,” the body begins to behave in an identical manner to that of consuming regular sugar.
- Increase your intake of fresh, purified non-carbonated water. This is one of the foundations of any type of diet. In sports nutrition, it is recommended to start the day with a glass of room temperature drinking water. The body wakes up, naturally activating the rest of its functions. The recommended amount of water consumed per day should not be less than 1.5 liters. Juices, tea, and coffee are not included.
- Provide your body with vitamin C. You can get plenty of it in citrus fruits and some kinds of greens. It is a natural antioxidant that is essential in your diet. It plays an active part in building tissue and prevents premature aging of the skin. It is a kind of brick in the formation of collagen fibers responsible for skin elasticity.
- Consuming more saturated fats. Without simple carbohydrates (sugar), fat will not accumulate in tissues, on the contrary, fats take part in building new cells. Why does a child’s diet imply equal consumption of fish, meat and chicken? Fish, especially sea fish, is a treasure trove of saturated amino acids and fats (Omega-3). These are the elements on which the entire body is built. In addition, fats are necessary for the normal functioning of the brain.
- Start consuming complex carbohydrates. Fruits and vegetables are rich in them. The more varied are the colors of the gifts of nature, the better for the body. Each berry, fruit, and vegetable has a certain value.
