We are talking about dieting as a way to lose weight and achieve the figure of your dreams. But we don’t think that a well-formulated diet can help us get rid of problems with nails, hair and even skin. In this case, a trip to the beautician can be put as the last item on the list of urgent matters.
A balanced diet that will accompany you not only for a certain period of time, but on an ongoing basis, will help you gain a slim figure and a radiant complexion. Our skin interacts with the external environment 24/7 and is the main protector of the body. In order for her to be healthy and beautiful, several basic rules must be observed:
- Do not overeat salty foods. These foods cause dehydration.
- Refuse excessive consumption of sweets. Sugar is an ideal source for bacteria in the intestines that can cause breakouts or redness on the skin.
- Do not take analgin, aspirin and other pain relievers unnecessarily and for medical reasons. They can provoke the development of one type of skin cancer.
- Do not smoke as it accelerates the aging process
It is also important to include natural food products in the diet, which ones - we'll figure it out in more detail.
- Pear (without skin)
- Whole grain cereals
These products are the main suppliers of fiber. 30 grams of fiber a day helps prevent many diseases, including intestinal diseases. And this is a well-known fact - good microflora is the key to healthy skin.
Tip: Do not heat-treat those foods that contain a large amount of fiber. They must be eaten fresh.
Products containing chlorogenic acid
- Green coffee
This acid helps fight the E. coli virus and the herpes pathogen. It is also found in roasted coffees, but green coffee contains many times more of it.
Omega-3 is one of the most powerful antioxidants, preventing collagen from breaking down and free radicals from damaging the skin. It is also found in nuts and eggs, soybean, flaxseed and corn oils. Omega-3 improves the functioning of the central nervous system, reduces the manifestation of allergies (see also: "How to determine if you have a seasonal allergy"), fights dermatitis, protects the skin from ultraviolet radiation and stimulates the reproductive system.
Products containing tyrosine
To reduce sleepiness, increase appetite, mood swings and even depression, we need tyrosine. Products containing this amino acid have a positive effect on the functioning of the nervous system, eliminate the signs of premenstrual syndrome and improve the overall condition of the skin.
An important point - do not forget to daily use at least 2-3 glasses of pure water. Even this amount will help normalize the metabolic process and relieve you of acne. Water helps regulate digestion, temperature, pressure, and helps deliver oxygen (read also: “What are the benefits of thermal water-based treatments”).
Tip: If you start to actively use fiber in your diet, then the amount of water should be increased.
