Nothing you eat will make your wrinkles or lines simply disappear or reverse all the signs of aging on your face. But you can’t just eat anything and think it won’t affect your face and appearance. Foods and your appearance definitely have a close relationship, internally and externally. The foods you eat affect every organ in your body, including your skin.
No matter what type of skin care regimen you have, even the most expensive kinds, you must nourish yourself and your skin from the inside. Don’t use any product as a substitute for specific foods because certain foods have the vitamins, nutrients, and metabolites that your skin and body need which no product can replace.
Every cell in your body needs tons of certain nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and essential amino acids. Specific foods carry these nutrients, such as vitamins A, C and E, and deliver them to your cells and organs, especially your skin. Topical skin care products can only deliver these types of vitamins on the outside and they do not ensure that they will reach deep enough inside your skin. Some only stay on your skin temporarily until you shower or wash your face. By eating certain enriched foods, you are sending these vitamins to your skin through your bloodstream, ensuring their delivery and benefits.
By using a trusted skin care regimen on the outside and eating right for your insides, you’ll begin to notice healthier skin each day. Talk with your doctor about the right amounts you should be consuming. Although they have great benefits, foods and topical treatments won’t be able to do miracles on your skin because there are many other factors within the aging process that you cannot control. However, they will make a big difference in your overall health and appearance. Always remember the saying, “You are what you eat.”
