With winter here most people ask the question: Is it possible to have super skin even though its cold? This article seeks to address this very question and we encourage you to continue reading if you want to find out the answer.
Feeding your skin plenty of good nutrients through a healthy diet is as essential to your skin’s condition as moisturizing from the outside. Here are five nutritional tips for keeping your skin looking healthy through winter:
1. Drink Water
Our skin is made from cells requiring water to stay hydrated. Water flushes our skin cells of toxins.
2. Essential Fats
The skin needs a regular supply of essential fats (found in nuts, avocado, seeds, seed oils, olive oil and oily fish) to stay smooth and supple and also hydrated. The essential fats also regulate hormones which if out of balance, cause skin breakouts.
Vitamins C, E and A are vitalnutrients for the skin which help counteract free radicals and oxidative stress. Eat lots of different coloured fruit and vegetables such as carrots, butternut, grapes, berries, apples, beetroot and all the greens.
4. Skin Supplements
