Tips To Beautiful Skin: Nourishment For Your Skin

The human body needs nutrition to operate correctly. For this reason many of us use nutritional health supplements for optimum health and healthy eating is also essential. The skin care industry is booming with products that claim to provide all the nutrients your skin needs to look glowing and healthy.

So one of the most important healthy skin tips has to be: provide the right vitamins and minerals your skin needs to look good.

But what does our skin need to look and be healthy?

Antioxidants are very useful for a good complexion. These reduce the damage caused by rogue molecules called ‘free-radicals’ that damage skin cells and speed up the ageing process.

Antioxidants are found in vitamins A, C, and E as well as in beta-carotene. These are widely found in fruit and vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, apples, bananas and blueberries. Other sources of these useful vitamins also include chicken, eggs, wheat germ and even oysters.

Omega 3 is also useful to your skin. These fatty acids are good for us in that they help the skin stay strong and so repel day-to-day pollutants and toxins.

Foods that are rich in Omega 3 included good quality fish, eggs and walnuts.

The key, as always, is to have a healthy, balanced diet supplemented by a good natural diet supplement and you should end up with a healthy, glowing skin that will truly make you look ravishing.

All Natural Makeup: It Is Worth Getting Your Skin Type Right

One of the healthy skin tips for anyone wanting to make the most of their skin is to first understand what skin type they are.

Skin types vary quite considerably and, although it is often wiser to use an all natural makeup to work with your skin, it is essential to know what skin type you are so that you can employ the best skincare regime and look your best.

Sadly, many women decide their skin type according to a subjective analysis and, as a result get it badly wrong. Others may get it right by consulting a qualified beautician but spend a fortune in the process.

In reality your skin changes according to a constant round of internal and external influences. Medications, sun exposure smoking and hormones can change the health of your skin almost day to day.

One mistake we make is to assume our skin is in a certain condition as a result of age and, while this is true in terms of a reduction in collagen (and the subsequent need for a good collagen capsule treatment), we do need to understand the other influences that change the condition of our skin. For this reason, some anti-aging products should be used with caution as they may actually dry the skin when it needs moisture.

If you want to understand more about skin types, there is a useful article on the Lifescript.com website.
