HOW EATING HABITS AFFECT OUR SKIN

By Dr. Dinko Kaliterna In Blog Posted 9.1.2019.

We are all aware that nutrition plays an important role in our life. The food that we consume is reflected in every aspect of our life and in our everyday activities. On the other hand, unhealthy dietary habits eventually become visible on the outside as well.
Apart from an increase in the body weight, problematic skin may occur as well. Even though there is a number of factors that may affect the appearance of our skin, such as genetics, bad hygiene, stress, and other lifestyle habits, bad diet leaves the biggest
marks.

Fatty foods – main cause of acne
Unlike in the case of our genetics, we have control over our dietary habits. By avoiding unhealthy, greasy and over-seasoned foodstuff, that is fast food, you can prevent the appearance of acne. Fast food is mostly made of foodstuff rich in saturated fatty acids and cholesterol. Not only do they contribute to obesity, but they are among the main culprits for the appearance of acne and impurities on your face. Foodstuffs with high glycaemic index and greasy processed food stimulate increased insulin secretion. This results in endocrine reactions, including the increase in testosterone levels which affects the appearance of acne, and therefore it is necessary to avoid foodstuffs from that category.

Among such foodstuffs are:

Full-fat dairy
Junk food
Fizzy drinks, artificially sweetened juices, energy drinks
White bread
Chocolate

Replace the above-mentioned foodstuffs with food rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Healthy fats and omega-3 fatty acids provide the skin with softness and velvety appearance, vitamins contribute to skin renewal and protection, and minerals such as zinc provide protection against skin diseases such as pigmentation and other abnormalities. Ensure the necessary intake of vitamin C through vegetables, and replace the cow milk with almond, coconut, rice or soy milk. Omega 3 fatty acids can be found in fatty fish, such as salmon and tuna, and you can eat walnuts as a rich natural source of zinc and unsaturated fats.

FIGHTING IMPERFECTIONS WITH FACE CARE

Taking into consideration the modern lifestyle and its fast pace, a complete change of the menu can present a real challenge. Since it is hard to ensure the intake of above-mentioned foodstuffs in the amount required through the daily menu, people around the world turn to alternative and more simple methods of achieving healthy skin. Among those methods may also be the use of dermatologic products such as creams, masks, and solutions. They have a significant role in face care, and their daily use may have a positive impact on problematic skin. Facial impurities may cause a series of skin diseases.

Those that are accumulated throughout the day prevent the functioning of natural defense mechanisms, and therefore daily facial cleansing is extremely important in order to achieve healthy looking skin and prevent the appearance of blackheads, acne, and similar abnormalities.
