When it comes to skincare, the most important tip is to sleep, eat and drink healthy. Everything else is an add-on. If you are not sleeping, eating and drinking healthy, you may find that your skincare products are not working as they should. My advice is to start to rethink your lifestyle to help your skin. There’s no point in wasting more money on expensive skincare products, when your lifestyle is interfering with the products. If you feel your skin lacks moisture and you want your skin to look more plump, here are some foods you may want to eat more of.
Avocado is an amazing fruit, rich in nutrients and goodness. It contains well over twenty vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B, C, E and K, riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, lutein, beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acids and anti-ageing antioxidants. These nutrients increase the skin’s moisture, which makes it appear more youthful and vibrant. It also works wonders on the hair from within as well. If you prefer to apply topically, you could play around with making your own Avocado skincare products. There are loads of recipes available for face masques, facial scrubs, hair treatments, body moisturisers and more, made with avocados.
Raw Nuts and Seeds
If you are a nut lover, then you will be happy to hear nuts are great for adding moisture in the skin. Raw nuts and seeds support collagen production in the body, which leads to a plump skin, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. So go stock up on Chia seeds, Sunflower seeds, Walnuts, Cheshnuts, Pumpkin seeds, and the likes. Your skin will thank you for it.
Oily fish like salmon and sardines are great for adding moisture in the skin. I was so happy to discover this as I am not a fish lover but the only fish I do eat sometimes is salmon and sardines. They are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which is what our skin needs to look supply and plump.
Berries like strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are amazing sources of vitamin C. This vitamin is important for the formation of collagen, which the skin needs for structure and elasticity.
