Last month we wrote about identifying problem areas through face mapping to determine the cause of acne. Many of these problem areas were caused by diet – liver function and digestion play a huge role in how your skin looks!
They say that losing weight and getting healthy is 80% diet and 20% exercise, and it works just the same for skincare! Though you can reduce acne through topical products and medicines, getting to the root of the problem will save you from stress over acne later. The best way to do this is through what you eat, and there are a few foods that can really boost the glow of your skin and help fight breakouts. Here are a few to try:
- Water: This may seem silly and obvious, but it is so important that we had to include it! Drinking more water helps flush out toxins, gives you more energy, and hydrates your cells. When paired with a good moisturizer, drinking more water will make your skin look more refreshed than ever!
- Leafy greens: Dark leafy greens are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that keep your skin nourished. Use a mask with those same nutrients and your skin look healthy and even-toned.
- Berries: Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are also full of great antioxidants, but they also help combat cravings for your skins number one enemy: refined sugar. These tiny fruits are sweet enough to satisfy your need for sugar, without all of the breakouts that processed sweets can cause.
- Avocado: This food is one of the top Instagram-able toast toppings, and is also great for your skin! Avocados contain those good fats that ward off those dark under eye circles and hold moisture. Eat more avocados and use your daily eye cream to decrease signs of aging and look more energized than ever.
