How to Have A Good Skin Diet

Despite being a total product junkie, it’s undeniable that we are what we eat and our diet and lifestyle plays huge role in the health and appearance of our skin.

However, as much as we’re all aware of this, it can often seem too hard to commit to a diet that keeps our healthy skin goals top of mind. Thankfully, it’s actually a lot easier than you think to take a skin first approach to your nutrition. Here’s how to have a good skin diet…

  1. Eat the Rainbow

All of the powerful vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that give fruits and vegetables their span of colours play a vital role in our health so it’s important to ensure you’re getting a dose of all of them. Each different colour of fruit or vegetable will contribute to a different factor of your skin health whether that’s through detoxification, oxidising or treating specific concerns such as inflammation.

  1. Commit to Cleansing

Modern diets and lifestyles can quickly lead to a build-up of toxins in our bodies, even if you make every effort to eat relatively healthily. Since our skin is our largest organ, it often feels the brunt of a weekend of excess of an unhealthy diet causing skin to appear dull or even breakout. Returning your body to an alkaline state is imperative for a healthy liver, gut and in turn skin, which is where Vida Glow’s Beauty Cleanse Powder comes in. Packed full of bioavailable ingredients that support the elimination of toxin build-up as well as antioxidants, it helps to cleanse your body to promote better skin. It’s 100% natural, vegan and gluten free and it actually tastes great!

  1. Boost Your Caffeine Hit

Making good habits is all about being realistic. If you’re a coffee addict and aren’t going to be able to cut it out cold turkey, you’re better off choosing an alternative so you still get your caffeine boost without the constant urge to break your good habits. Before You Speak’s Glow Collagen Coffee gives you the benefit of single origin Colombian coffee infused with marine collagen that supports healthy hair, skin and nails. It also contains silica, biotin, vitamin B6 and MCTs that support your metabolism and enhance mental clarity.

  1. Up Your Protein Intake

It’s not just vegetarians and workout addicts that would benefit from a little extra protein in their diets. Our bodies use protein to build and repair muscle tissues in turn supporting the integrity of our skin. Without enough protein, connective tissues breakdown leading to a loss of volume, elasticity and luminosity. The Beauty Chef’s Body Inner Beauty Support is a clean, bio-fermented protein supplement combined with nutrient-dense and skin loving ingredients. In doing wonders inside your body, it’s helping to support the fundamental building blocks of healthy skin.

  1. Hydrate from The Inside Out

Increasing your water intake is always going to be important but you should also be looking for foods that help to hydrate your skin. These include things like cucumber, sweet potatoes, fatty fish such as salmon and nuts. It’s not just the high water content in these foods that are doing you good but also the healthy fats that fortify your skins protective barrier therefore reducing loss of hydration through your skin.

  1. Reduce Sugary Drinks

Quitting soft drinks, skipping flavoured milks and swapping pre-made juices for fresh ones are just a few ways to reduce our intake of sugar through what we drink. However, one of the biggest drinks playing a role in unhealthy skin is alcohol. As a fermented drink, it’s naturally high in carbohydrates and sugars and reducing your consumption will go a long way to improving your skin. If you can’t give up completely, a high-quality red wine is a good choice thanks to its antioxidants. When mixing spirits at home, choose low to no calorie flavoured mineral waters such as Schweppes’ Infused Natural Mineral Water and when you’re out, choose soda water and add extra limes or just a touch of cranberry juice for extra flavour.
