What we eat can have a direct affect on how we look. It is therefore important to eat the correct foods.
More Protein (Builders)
Protein is essential for the body. It helps to heal and repair, and gives us stamina and energy. It can improve the condition of our skin, hair and nails and along with regular face exercise, can help the face appear toned and firm. If we were to stop eating protein, our body and face would start to breakdown muscle for protein, leading to weakened and less defined muscles in the body and face.
Meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, legumes, soya and nuts are all great sources of protein.
More Antioxidant (Healers)
Antioxidants are nutrients found in some food which help to prevent or slow down damage from free radicals in our body. Free radicals can be caused by pollution, poor food choices, alcohol, smoking, too much sun and stress. This can cause many internal health problems as well as external issues such as poor skin tone on the face. However, eating foods high in antioxidants can help reduce this free radical damage and therefore improve the skin and general health. Some foods high in antioxidants are berries, green leafy vegetables, walnuts and oats.
Drink Water (Cleanser)
Drinking up to 2 litres a day will help to hydrate the skin, help remove toxins from the face and help reduce puffiness and bloating in the face.
Eat Good Fats (Lubricators)
Good fats help to break down the bad fats in the body. They are also very helpful for lubricating the skin and giving it a youthful, firm appearance. Good fats are found salmon, avocado, nuts, seeds and olive oil.
