It does matter quite a lot what you eat, if you want to keep your skin beautiful and free from acne and pimples. With the right diet, you can do wonders for the skin and the rest of the body. Below, Beauty Bears has compiled the 5 best offers on do’s and don’ts when it comes to beautiful and flawless skin.
Sugar and Caffeine
If you want to get rid of impurities, it is a good idea to hold back when it comes to sugar and starch. These foods cause your blood sugar to rise rapidly, which leads to an elevated insulin level. Caffeinated beverages such as coffee, sodas and energy drinks increase the production of the stress hormone cortisol, which in the same way leads to an elevated insulin level. A highly elevated insulin level can cause your skin to produce more fat and sebum, which clogs your pores in the skin and cause pimples. If you cut down on sugar, caffeine and starch, you will actually do both your skin and the rest of your body a favor, so give it a try!
For many Danes, dairy products are a cause of impure skin. Dairy products contain whey protein, which in many people can be the cause of pimples and acne. However, there is no guarantee that exclusion of dairy products will work for everyone, but it is worth giving it a try. Fortunately, there are many alternatives to dairy products today - Try coconut yogurt or oat milk, for example.
Never go down on water if you want healthy and pimple-free skin. In fact, it is recommended to drink a full 6-8 glasses of water a day for your body to function optimally.
If you have difficulty drinking enough water, a good tip is to add fruits and herbs to the water, to give it flavor. For example, try adding blueberries and mint, and leave it overnight. In addition, you can supplement your fluid intake with green tea, which contains antioxidants.
Extra vitamins and minerals
If you are in doubt that you are getting all the vitamins and minerals your skin needs, you can advantageously supplement your diet with Beauty Bear SKIN Vitamins. The skin vitamins from Beauty Bear consist of a combination of Vitamin A, Ceramide Oil, Zinc and 9 other nutrients, which gives you a healthy and beautiful skin. Remember that vitamins and minerals support each other, and it is therefore not natural to only take supplements of a single vitamin or mineral. That's why Beauty Bear SKIN Vitamins has composed as many as 12 vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in their skin vitamins.
Foods with anti-inflammatory properties
Foods with anti-inflammatory properties can help fight infections and allergic reactions. Many studies show that fatty fish are among the most anti-inflammatory foods due to the high content of omega 3 fatty acids. The healthy fat with anti-inflammatory effect can also be found in nuts, almonds, avocados, olive oil and rapeseed oil. In addition, cabbage has a particular high content of anti-inflammatory plant substances.
Foods with Antioxidants
Antioxidants help your skin fight environmental stressors as they support the cells' natural cycle. Antioxidants are found in all kinds of fruits and vegetables, including especially raspberries and blueberries. In addition, tea and chocolate contain some of the antioxidants that are easiest for you to absorb and that can prevent inflammation. So, you can with good conscience include these for a cozy evening with friends & family.
