    Effects of Nutrition on skin

    The skin is the largest organ of our body and our bad eating habits affect it greatly. A life filled with stress, inadequate sleep and a diet low in essential vitamins and minerals is also reflected in our complexion. Though regular exfoliation, proper cleansing, and nourishing products are important for proper skin care, foods that encourage healthy skin cell renewal also play a key part in the condition of the skin.

    Excessive consumption of sugars is not only detrimental to our body composition but also has unfavorable effects on our skin. Simple carbohydrates like the refined sugar found in most cakes, cookies, candy, and soft drinks cause insulin levels to spike and create a wave of inflammation throughout the body. This inflammation leads to a breakdown in collagen and elastin, the fibers that give skin its elasticity and strength. Sugar also attaches itself to proteins in the body and produces a harmful byproduct called „advanced glycation end product“ which results in sagging skin, breakouts and a washed out appearance. On top of this, there’s also research that links sugar to acne. Those spikes in insulin levels caused by consumption of sugars can increase sebum production, which leads to break-outs. It has been revealed that people who eat a low-glycemic diet had fewer breakouts.

    Lately, more and more attention is focused on the treatment of skin problems through application of products for outdoor use, instead of just improving eating habits to treat the skin from the inside. Research has shown that the antioxidants in vitamins C and E can protect the skin from sun damage. Similarly, we have long known that the B vitamin is responsible for forming the basis of skin, hair and nail cells, and vitamin A, which is found in many fruits and vegetables maintains and repairs skin tissue. Without an adequate supply of these vitamins, you may notice it in the appearance of your skin, hair and nails.

    Perhaps the most damaging and disruptive substances to the health of our skin are free radicals. These are toxins of various origins that come from the external environment.
    Free radicals are caused by smoking, pollution and sunlight.
    Antioxidants are the chemicals that interact with and neutralize free radicals, thus preventing them from causing damage. Vegetables and fruits are the main sources of antioxidants such as beta-carotene for our body. Consuming adequate portions of these foods daily is the first step to healthy, glowing skin.

    Another important factor that most people overlook these days is drinking adequate amounts of water. Skin cells, like any other cell in the body, are made up of water. Without water, the organs will certainly not function properly or at their best. If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin is less flexible and is more prone to wrinkling.

    It is important to consume a variety of foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, legumes and lean protein because different foods provide different types and amounts of key nutrients. The health of your skin affects far more than your appearance. As with any organ, good nutrition helps your skin function at its best.
