In the winter, it’s easy for your skin to become dry and flaky. I’ve been trying to find healthy alternatives instead of spending tons of money on expensive creams and lotions. What you eat and drink is just as important as what you put on your skin. These are few simple ways to maintain healthy skin and improve your diet. Feeling good is just as important as looking good!
Glass of Water. Water helps flush out toxins that make your skin look dull and dry. By drinking water, your skin will be softer and less prone to acne. Water also helps provide a natural glow and diminishes fluid retention that causes puffy eyes. So as the say, drink 8 glasses of water a day!
Berries. Berries are full of antioxidants and protect the skin from free radicals, which harm healthy cell production. I absolutely love blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. They’re great to eat on their own or as a topping on yogurt, oatmeal, or cereal.
Zinc. I love crab and oysters. Who would have thought that they had great health benefits as well! Oysters, crabs, and other lean meats are rich in zinc. Zinc helps soothe the skin, reduce oil production that can cause acne, and heals wounds.
Vitamin C. I drink a glass of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice every single day! Many people don’t like the taste. But I love it!!! Citrus fruits like oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit are filled with Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps fight immune deficiencies and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
