Skincare is enhanced by lifestyle: Eating healthy, getting enough sleep and staying hydrated are all factors that effect your skin.
Complexion Brightening Carotenoids
Carotenoids are antioxidants found in brightly colored veggies. Carrots, red peppers, tomatoes, squash are examples of foods that are very effective at bringing radiance to your skin. But don't shy away from dark leafy greens such as kale and spinach they contain a good amount of carotenoids as well.Why Carotenoids work? They specialize in absorbing damaging compounds your body produces under stress, especially when fighting illness.
Walnuts, pecans, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds are all examples of foods that are packed with Omega-3s.
Why you need them? Omega-3s appear to improve skin barrier function (think protective layer) sealing in moisture and keeping out irritants. Thought research is limited, they appear to boost your skin's resistance to sunburns, reduce acne and protect against dry, red, itchy skin. These healthy fats are an easy and worthy addition to your diet as they not only benefit your hair and skin but also your overall health. Nuts do contain fat so limit to a one-ounce serving per day.
