While changing nutritional habits won’t stop aging in its tracks, a healthy diet will improve the texture, tone, and look of your skin. Our diet has a significant effect on every organ in our body, including the skin. Scientifically engineered topical creams and lotions are designed to penetrate into the skin but do not have the depth necessary to transform the skin from the inside out. This is why a healthy diet is so important. Some of the benefits of nourishing your skin from the inside are:
The cells in the human body require several nutrients and metabolites in order to function properly. The vitamins, minerals, and amino acids we get from our food are a crucial source of nutrient supply for our cells. In fact, some of these nutrients can only be obtained from food. Others can be and are produced naturally by the body as long as it has the necessary health to function properly.
The outer layer of our skin is composed of dead skin cells, while deeper layers are alive. The best topical creams and lotions are design to penetrate through this outer layer of skin thereby delivering essential vitamins and minerals to the deeper tissue. All lotions are not created equal and therefore do not have the appropriate penetration power necessary to improve the skin’s texture and tone. Nutrients that are consumed and delivered to the body via the blood stream do not suffer from this same problem. You can therefore rest assured that proper eating will supply the appropriate nutrients to your skin.
Studies have shown that proper nutrition has a positive affect on the body’s natural aging process. This means that eating right may promote anti-aging.
The essential vitamins and minerals needed by the skin are also needed by other cells throughout the body. So, while treating your skin through healthy eating you are also treating the rest of your body.
