Each cell in our bodies needs nutrients to function properly. Many of these nutrients come from the food we eat every day. What we don’t get from food our bodies produce, however this only will happen if our body is healthy and properly functioning.
An unhealthy and incomplete diet causes cellular damage and ages our whole body, including our skin. Topical treatments that are used to improve our skin's appearance are much less effective if the body is deficient in essential nutrients.
The bottom line: nutrients that benefit your skin often benefit the whole body, and a diet that is good for your body is reflected in healthy skin.Shoot for a well-balanced diet every day, which includes the following: an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables (aim for a variation of color), healthy fats (ex. avacado, nuts, olive oil, seeds, etc.), lean protein (fish, chicken, bison steaks, turkey, low-fat cottage cheese, non-fat greek yogurt, etc.), and whole grains (quinoa, barley, brown rice, amarenth, whole oats, wheat pasta,etc.).
