Every one of us experiences some changes on our skin over the time. Whether it is due to some late dietary change, environmental change or hormonal change; it can all influence our skin’s health.
That is why it is important to pay attention on how we treat our skin’s health. It’s not only what we put on our skin that is important, but also what we consume. Most of the products we use tend to be made of several dangerous ingredients. Because of that, we should choose to try out some natural ways to hydrate our skin from the inside out and to improve our skin’s health.
Cucumber contains silica, an ingredient that boosts moisture and elasticity of our skin. 1 cucumber can make up for a whole snack. There are several ways to consume it. You can use it for your juices, eat it whole or use it in your salads.
Celery also contains silica. You can use it in your juices or salads.
- Chia seeds
Chia seeds are a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids can limit the water loss in skin cells.
- Aloe vera
Aloe Vera will quench your skin’s thirst when used internally as well. The best way to consume it is trough your smoothies. A small amount won’t alter the taste too much and will provide the health benefits. Too much aloe vera can make the smoothies taste bitter.
It is kind of obvious, but the importance of water in our body’s functioning is huge. A glass of water in the morning will compensate for the overnight drought and will hydrate your skin from inside out.
Avocado is also one of the richest sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. Many of the most respected nutritionists and dermatologist consider the avocado as one of the favorite beauty fruits.
All fruits and veggies are great for you and your skin, but melons are particularly hydrating due to their super high water content.
