Did you know that your most powerful weapons in your beauty arsenal are foods and nutrients.
In the “general” world of beauty, there was a time when women either accepted looking older or opted for facelifts. For the most part black women did not have facelifts. It wasn’t necessary.
Black women’s skin has always looked younger even at 100 years old. Nutrition played and still plays a major role in the beauty of your skin.
Many decades of research have shown that inflammation, which occurs on a cellular level, is the single greatest factor of aging.
Nutrition for the Skin You’re In
Today, everyone knows that an anti-inflammatory diet can help reduce your risk of diabetes, heart disease, some cancer and Alzheimer’s. Nutrition is very important to the health of your skin.
Did you know that your skin can benefit from an anti-inflammatory diet? If you change your eating habit, what you eat-when you eat it, for 3 days, you’ll see a major difference in your skin, your thinking process, your mood and your energy level.
To begin, drink 8-10 glasses of pure spring water daily, along with drinking antioxidant rich beverages such as green tea.
Of course you know this means no processed foods, no sugar, no breads, cakes, pastries, sodas or any sweetened drinks, corn cakes, starchy food or chips.
Instead, include whole foods, like high quality protein, such as salmon, halibut, sardines or herring, which are all anti-inflammatory.
Low gylcemic carborhydrates that won’t cause a rapid surge in blood sugar, such as fresh fruits and vegetables are also good for your body and skin.
Healthy fats that are found in cold water fish are also found in walnuts, seed and olive oils.
Trends in Skin Care
Many of the ingredients found in skin care are available in foods and food supplements. Minerals help your cells regenerate, protect, nourish and enhance moisture retention in your skin.
Essential fatty acids reduce inflammation and plump up your skin from within. They help strengthen and thicken delicate skin from the outside.
Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, eating a macrobiotic, Mediterranean diet or gluten free, the key to beautiful black skin is the internal health state of your body.
Your kitchen is the real medicine cabinet in your house, make sure you stock it wisely.
