Food, diet and skin

Food diet and skinFood, diet and skin are there to be linked together at all times. One wrong value on any of the three and the all chain is compromised.

We all want to look our best, but do you ever stop to consider what you are putting into your body when you eat food and are also placing toxins into the skin? Everyone knows that eating healthy helps to produce collagen in the body, but there is a whole other story that makes our skin look terrible.

Sugar is toxic for the skin and everyone needs to be careful how much they eat. Sugar is not only unhealthy for the skin, it is also very difficult to regulate when you have a sweet tooth.

What does collagen do?

Collagen is responsible for keeping the skin elastic and flexible. However, there are a variety of pollutants and free radicals that interfere with collagen production. It is these toxins that contribute to wrinkling, sagging, dark circles, and dry skin. So, if you want healthy skin and a nice glow, avoid foods that are high in these toxins.

What if you have eczema?

When you have eczema, you will need to consider a special diet designed to treat this skin disease. It is important to avoid processed foods and highly refined carbohydrates in your diet. Instead, you should focus on eating foods that are rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, E, and C.

These vitamins help to prevent eczema and promote healthy skin. Therefore, it is smart to stick to a diet filled with foods such as nuts, fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

Another concern with eczema and diet is sodium. If you don’t avoid salt in your diet, you risk increasing the acidity levels in your body and causing dry skin and inflammation.
