Does Diet Impact Your Skin?

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” is a famous quote from Greek physician Hippocrates. It was first attributed to him in 400 B.C., but the advice is as true then as it is now. The key to a more glowing complexion lies in what you eat on a daily basis. Whether you’re trying to avoid getting breakouts, ward off accumulating fine lines and wrinkles, or simply want to keep your skin healthy, it’s important to practice good nutrition to meet your goals.

What Can I Eat to Avoid Acne & Breakouts?

Acne occurs when the pores become clogged with dead skin and oil, resulting in whiteheads, blackheads, and other blemishes. Some research suggests that a healthy diet can curb and treat acne, especially diets with complex carbohydrates, zinc, vitamins A and E, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. Although the foods that might cause acne have long been up for debate and continue to be researched, dermatologists suggest limiting sugary and high-fat foods and drinks. High sugar intake can lead to inflammation and acne, limit simple carbohydrate foods that in turn increase blood sugar, including white bread and white rice, or sugary desserts and dairy products.

The Importance of Hydration for Smoother Skin

Getting enough water intake is an important healthy habit for your skin and your entire body. Your internal organs and your skin, which is the largest organ of your body, need a constant supply of fresh water that you lose throughout the day from sweating and other bodily processes. Water calms existing acne and prevents future breakouts by helping remove toxins and bacteria on the skin, it keeps the skin moisturized to aid in skin cell rejuvenation and the production of collagen, and it helps reduce blood sugar levels.

Which Foods Can Cause Premature Aging?

Research has proven that a diet rich in nutrients found in fruit, vegetables, and healthy oils and fats protects against wrinkles, age-related dryness, and skin thinning. That’s because these oils and fats found in fish, nuts, olive oil, avocado, and many other foods can help aid collagen production in your skin which in turn makes it smoother and suppler. On the other hand, a diet high in saturated fat and sugar is correlated to a higher likelihood of premature signs of aging, such as more fine lines and wrinkles.
