How to nourish your skin naturally

Do you spend lots of money and lots of time on buying and applying anti-aging lotions and potions, only to be disappointed time and time again? Do you wonder why some people show their age, while others seem to look great, year on year?

While much of it might be down to our genes – which we are powerless to change – what we do on a daily basis can also have a dramatic effect on our outward appearance. But, you can nourish your skin naturally….

Skin is not only affected by what it comes into contact with on the outside. What we eat and drink each day can also have a huge impact on the condition of our skin from the inside.

Many skin-care products talk about ‘nourishing’ and providing vitamins and minerals to your skin, and come with a hefty price tag to boot! But you can nourish your skin naturally and provide it with all the goodness it needs simply by eating a healthy, balanced diet.

Include plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables in your daily diet to ensure you get a broad range of vitamins and minerals you skin needs.

You should also take care to include good fats – such as omega oils – in your diet to provide the nutrients needed for building healthy skin cells and preventing dryness and inflammation. 

Staying hydrated is also essential for healthy, young-looking skin. Being dehydrated really shows in your skin – if you pinch the skin on the back of your hand, it should snap back to place immediately. If it doesn’t, chances are you need to drink more water – which, incidentally, is the main ingredient in most of those expensive creams!

So eat and drink well on a daily basis and see what a difference it makes to your face!
