1. QUIT THOSE FAD DIETS

Don’t ever follow fad diets as they often come and go. You might get some benefits out of it for short term but they mostly have disadvantages. When you entirely exclude certain types of foods from your diet, you are actually depriving yourself of essential vitamins, minerals and fatty acids needed for healthy skin. To promote healthy cell regeneration and hydration, our body needs foods having good fats in your diet. The moment you start restricted diets, you actually lose the fatty acids that our body cannot produce on its own, which causes dry, flaky skin. Your skin, hair and nails will show the first signs of malnutrition and also, this will lead to the inability to exercise, depression and body pain. Aren’t you thinking about those horrible dark circles right now  ? No – No ..Don’t think about it as long as you are having nutritious diets.

To stay healthy, you must choose the healthy diet which includes vitamins A, E, C, foods high in Omega 3s, healthy carbs, which include whole wheat breads and fruits that are high in antioxidants. Not it will help you in loosing weight but also keep your skin looking and feeling great.

2. EAT LOTS OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES BECAUSE THEY HAVE LOADS OF ANTIOXIDANTS

veg & fruits

Fruits and vegetables contain a loads of antioxidants which stimulate blood flow in the skin can help encourage the growth of new cells and make sun-damaged skin appear younger. They also prevent the signs of ageing. In addition, antioxidants may also improve the health and overall quality of your skin. So fellas, here I am giving you just one more reason to add those colourful Fruits & Veggies in your meal plan. Remember, deep & dark colored Fruits and Veggies contains more antioxidants properties! So have them more in your daily meals!! Yum-Yum- Yummy!!

3. START DRINKING SOME GREEN TEA RIGHT NOW!

I love Green Tea and drink at least 2 full mugs(5OOml each mug) of Green Tea Daily. Green Tea is full of antioxidants and make a great alternative to your usual Diet Coke. Antioxidants may actually reverse the effects of ageing by improving skin health and rejuvenating its appearance. Although, it is almost difficult to make wrinkles disappear but antioxidants can help plump out the skin and make it appear more youthful. Most antioxidants are great for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

So, Sip some green tea and you have a fat-free and calorie-free beverage. However, you can skip these drinks at night, if they interfere in your your sleep.

4. PROTEIN INTAKE IS IMPORTANT FOR CLEAR, HEALTHY AND GLOWING SKIN

Okay, If I ask , what exactly you want to see when you look in the mirror? Dull face, age spots and some new wrinkles? Or radiant, soft, supple, blemish- free glowing skin? Well everybody knows the answer!

Our muscles, hair, nails, skin and eyes are made of protein therefore Protein is vital for good looking skin, necessary for tissue repair and for the construction of new tissue. Proteins contain amino acids that support healthy and glowing skin. Eat more poultry, lean meats, fish, milk, beans and eggs to up your intake.

5. SAY NO TO FULL FAT DAIRY VERSIONS

I know we just cant live without dairy foods! Can we? As we cannot avoid dairy items intakes but yes you can opt for the low-fat versions over the full fat dairy which actually control your saturated fat intake, while also providing you vitamin D and protein which are vital for healthy skin and body. Go for low-fat cheese, milk etc. and you’ll have less skin breakouts! Yayy!!

6. SLOW DOWN ON THE CARBS GUYS!

no carbs

Carbohydrates are a source of energy. They provide us fuel for our everyday task. But wait when we over eat them, they do only harm to your body as well as your skin. Many researches show that a diet laced with sugar and refined carbohydrates mess with the firmness of your skin, which can lead to wrinkles and fine lines which can be more ageing for the skin than a lifetime of lying in the sun! Think!!!

Eat plenty of pulses, porridge, beans, wheat bread, popcorn and oatmeal and other slow-releasing carbohydrates. Such slow-releasing carbohydrates release sugar into our blood stream gradually, delivering you with a stable supply of energy and leaving you feeling satisfied for longer, So no more SNACKS. Avoid high GI carbohydrates like biscuits and sugar/cold drinks, as they lead to production of insulin, which may again lead to wrinkles! eww

7. DRINK UP AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE

Do you know, our skin is 64 percent water! Skin needs moisture to stay flexible. Without adequate water intake, skin appears duller, and wrinkles and pores look more prominent. This is because; water plumps up the skin. That’s why even mild dehydration causes your skin to look dry and tired. Drink at least Eight to Ten glasses of water everyday. This will also flush out the toxins and eliminate the dirt that clogs the pores of your skin, giving you a healthier glow.

8. NUTS & SEEDS FOR THE BEAUTIFUL SKIN

All nuts and seeds are rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps keep your skin beautiful. They are also rich in Protein, omega-3 fats, selenium, Vitamin-E and zinc that keeps your skin smooth, supple, and firm. Eat them by the handful for a snack or add them to your cakes or oatmeal. Nuts and seeds also make a great addition to salads.

p.s.
1) Nuts and seeds are best eaten raw and unsalted.
2) Although nuts and seeds have many benefits but do not overeat them else too much of this can wreak havoc on your waistline and digestion.

Making above simple yet very effective changes to your diet can have a significant impact on your skin appearance in a short amount of time!! Try them out . . . ..
