2. Eat Water-Rich Fruit and Vegetables
Eat water-rich fruit and vegetables to hydrate the skin cells. If you eat more water-rich foods, you will be supplying your skin with the hydration it needs to stay young and smooth. There are also vitamins and nutrients found in whole, fresh fruit and vegetables that give you clear skin. Incorporating some of these hydrating whole foods will supply your body with enzymes, nutrients, and vitamins that will help balance your body and make your skin glow. Some good choices are cucumbers, celery, marrow, courgettes, grapefruit, oranges, grapes.
3. Omega 3
Take an omega-3 supplement, or eat lots of fatty fish, nuts, seeds and flax seed (linseed). Omega-3 fatty acids, and particularly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), are essential for healthy skin and hair. EPA helps regulate oil production in your skin. Having plenty of this essential fatty acid in your body keeps your skin hydrated and prevents it from drying and flaking.
Exercise to oxygenate the blood. Aerobic exercise floods the body with oxygen and rids it of waste via the lymphatic system. Just as blood is circulated through the body by the heart, exercise is what circulates the lymph. If the lymph doesn’t circulate, then the tissues become oxygen-depleted because they become clogged with metabolic waste. Easy ways to do this outside of the gym are with yoga, walking, rebounding, cycling or running.
5. Get enough sleep
Beauty sleep is real, it’s free, and what’s great is you can start doing it tonight! Whilst you sleep, your skin renews itself. New skin cells grow and replace older cells. The good thing about the skin is that it recovers quickly. Get a good nights sleep tonight and start seeing the benefits by tomorrow.
