Tips to Improve Your Skin Through Proper Nutrition

  • Drink water at least 10 glasses a day.
  • Avoid fried foods. When using oils, try cold-pressed oils. Throw away any oil that has been in your cabinet for longer than six months. Oils should be refrigerated except for the small amount you may use in a week; keep in a small container.
  • Eat minimal sugar, chocolate, and potato chips, otherwise known as junk foods, which have little nutritional value.

  • Smoking increases wrinkles. If you can't kick the habit, consume extra amounts of vitamin C.
  • Watch your salt intake. Too much salt can lead to temporary swelling and puffiness.
  • The sulfur found in garlic, onions, and asparagus will aid in keeping the skin nice.
  • Vitamin E and aloe are very good to use topically on your skin
  • Drink minimal amounts of soft drinks.
  • If you have a skin irritation and suspect a food allergy, eliminate suspected food and keep a food record to monitor your reaction.
  • Increase intake of raw vegetables. Not only high in fiber, but naturally higher in vitamins, phytochemicals, and enzymes than those that have been cooked, processed, or canned.
  • Thoroughly wash all food before it is eaten.
  • Have a cup of warm water with lemon juice in the morning.
  • When dining out eat broiled fishes, steamed or baked vegetables, and starches.
  • Eat little or no processed foods.
  • Get rid of your aluminum cooking utensils. Absolutely no benefit to the body.
  • Eat a high-fiber diet to cleanse the digestive track. Put a couple of tablespoons of wheat bran on your morning cereal; it has the bonus of extra B vitamins.
