In this day and age, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with a haul of new products coming out everyday for a beautiful you – on the outside of course. But, the reality is, it’s not what you put on your skin on the outside, but what you nourish it with from within, that really counts.
What you eat has a greater impact on your skin than any products you could lather on your face, so along with drinking water to stay hydrated, it’s important to consume the right things. Here’s a list of what you should start stocking up on, depending on your skin type for a more flawless you!
- Dry Skin
Water-rich fruits and vegetables, like watermelon and zucchinis, are ideal for dry skin types, allowing the body to absorb the water and keeping your skin hydrated from the inside out for longer.
- Sensitive Skin
Calming foods that include mint will help to reduce those sensitivity levels to soothe skin. It’s best not to overeat things that have gluten, dairy and preservatives, as delicious as they are.
- Oily Skin
Avoiding high-glycaemic foods like carbohydrates and refined sugars will definitely help with reducing inflammations and oil-based breakouts. Cucumbers and onions are best for detoxifying the body and controlling the oil production!
- Ageing Skin
Mature skin needs more elasticity and firmness than anything, if it’s at its prime, so stock up on anything with lots of bananas, which provide Vitamin C and B6. Herbs like rosemary are naturally anti-inflammatory and can help reduce puffiness and redness.
