We all know that foods have healing properties and very therapeutic effects. If you want healthy skin, it is important for you to have a healthy diet- a diet, which contains adequate amount of vitamins, minerals and proteins. Balance is the key word. No single diet is responsible for building up or maintaining the skin- so fad diets, which over-emphasize one food in preference to others can actually deprive you of essential nutrients and so may even harm your body and skin.
There are a lot of myths about the effect of certain foods on your skin. For the most part they are false. It is false for instance; that eating chocolates, sweets or rich cakes will give you spots. It is also false that eating greasy, fried foods will give you a greasy skin or make your hair greasy. Although eating very greasy food have almost little or no benefit for the body in any form. There is no ironclad guarantee, that if you fill yourself with cucumbers, grapes, carrot juice or lettuce you will acquire a beautiful, flawless complexion. There are extraordinary claims, suggesting, for example, that salads will dramatically change your appearance and to develop a perfect skin you must take vitamin and mineral supplements exclusively.
In my personal experience there is no one way or answer to good skin. To have beautiful skin there must be a menagerie of factors involved. You must take care of your health from the inside out!
Just as foods are important to healthy vibrant skin, it is equally important to remember, that the single most important factor in determining the beauty of your complexion is heredity.
That being said then one would embark on a healthy lifestyle that includes, rest, healthy food, exercise, water, good sleep, high quality vitamins and supplements. It would be great to get a leg up on what foods have some of the highest benefit for your skin. Here is a list of 5 easy foods that you can purchase from your local supermarket and begin your path to healthy skin:
Asparagus – Because of the extreme high alkaline content- it helps to balance the ph levels of the skin.
Coconut oil- lubricates the joint and skin and helps to have a healing effect on the body.
