Perfect skin is for those who know how to preserve it and those who work hard for it to look ageless.
"Beauty problems such as dry, rough skin, acne and oily skin are an outward manifestation of problems inside the body and skin and a good gauge of internal health. Good health can lead to radiant looks. If you're taking good care of yourself, your body will announce it to the world!," says Veena Aggarwal, Head of research and development at VLCC.
Here are some common skin problems with their nutritional solutions:
Dry, rough skin: It signifies poor intake of water or lack of Vitamin A. Diet should be low in saturated fat, high in essential fatty acids. Drink at least 1 litre of water a day and eat plenty of water- rich foods such as fruits and vegetables, especially yellow/ orange/ red ones which are high in B carotene.
Alcohol and stimulants such as coffee and tea should be limited.
Oily skin: Diet low in fat but sufficient essential oils from seeds, low in alcohol, sugar and stimulants is beneficial. If you want to look good and feel great, invest in the long-term benefits of food that makes a real difference from top to toe.
Essential nutrients for ageless beauty include the following:
Nourish your skin with these simple, vitamin rich treats
SALADS: Enjoy griddled peppers drizzled with olive oil, raw vegetables, salad greens drizzled with lime juice and sprinkled with walnuts, grated carrot with raisins, walnuts and sunflower seeds and lime dressing.
GOLDEN FRUIT: Make a salad of yellow- fleshed fruits such as apricots, oranges, peaches, melon, papaya and mangoes.
SEAFOOD: Choose zinc-rich shellfish such as oysters
SNACKS: Handful of mixed nuts such as walnuts and almonds do wonders.
