EATING FOR SKIN HEALTH: HOW TO NOURISH YOUR SKIN FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Published April 10, 2023

Taking care of your skin means more than just using the right products and getting adequate sleep – what you eat can have a major impact on your skin’s health and appearance. Just like any other organ in the body, the skin needs nutrients to stay healthy. The food that you eat can have a big impact on the appearance of your skin. Read on to learn how to nourish your skin from the inside out. 

VITAMINS AND MINERALS FOR HEALTHY SKIN

The skin needs vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to function properly. Vitamins A, C, D, E, and K are particularly important for healthy skin as they help with collagen production, cell regeneration, protection from sun damage and other environmental factors, as well as hydration. Vitamin A (retinol) helps reduce acne and wrinkles by increasing cell turnover; Vitamin C is essential for collagen production; Vitamin D helps regulate oil production; Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps protect against oxidative damage from UV radiation; and Vitamin K helps reduce discoloration in the skin by improving circulation. 

Eating a diet rich in these vitamins can help keep your skin looking radiant and youthful. Aim to include plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables in your daily meals – think blueberries, spinach, oranges, sweet potatoes – as these contain many of the essential vitamins needed for healthy skin. Additionally, foods such as nuts (walnuts are especially high in Omega-3 fatty acids) fish (salmon is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids), avocados (packed with healthy fats), eggs (rich in zinc) are excellent sources of nutrition that will benefit both your overall health and your skin’s health.  

DRINKING PLENTY OF WATER IS IMPORTANT FOR HEALTHY SKIN 

Drinking plenty of water is important for healthy skin. Water helps to keep the skin hydrated and prevents dryness. It also helps to flush out toxins that can damage the skin.

THE IMPACT OF PROCESSED FOODS

Conversely, eating a diet that is high in processed foods such as white breads and sugary snacks can cause your complexion to look dull and lifeless over time due to dehydration caused by excess sugar consumption and inflammation caused by poor quality carbohydrates found in highly processed foods. Instead opt for whole grain breads or pastas which contain more fiber than their processed counterparts – this will help keep you feeling full longer while providing vital nutrients necessary for good skin health. If you do indulge in treats like cookies or ice cream try to limit them to once or twice per week so they don't become part of your regular routine!
