Nourish your body in a way that gives you a clearer complexion.
How you eat is just as important as what you eat. It directly affects the quality and appearance of your skin. According to a study reported in Eat Pretty Every Day: 365 Daily Inspirations for Nourishing Beauty, Inside and Out by Jolene Hart, CHC, AADP, how you breathe affects the body’s glycemic response following a meal. In the thirty minutes after study participants had eaten, researchers found that those that were calm had a lower glycemic response. In turn, it helped their skin along with the aging process and weight maintenance.
Here are some of the ways that you can eat calm and improve the condition of your skin:
- Choose foods that nourish your skin and provide it with vitamins and nutrients it needs to heal itself. Some options include avocados, nuts, fatty fish, olive oil, seeds, orange and yellow vegetables, and fruits such as mangoes, papayas, and blueberries.
- Make mealtime sacred by banishing distractions. Put your phone away. Set the table. Use beautiful dishes that make eating an important and necessary part of your day.
- Give yourself a full 30 minutes to an hour to eat. Take time for yourself no matter how busy your schedule. Good health starts with diet. If you want your skin to look incredible, stop forcing mealtime to take place at your desk in front of the computer or in the car on the way to another appointment.
- Experiment with recipes that make food more appealing to look at and enjoy. Borrow a cookbook from your local library or find a few recipes online that appeal to you. You’ll be amazed at how different you feel about cooking when you’re able to make dishes you enjoy eating. Experiment with fresh herbs and spices to elevate the flavors of the food you make for yourself and others to consume.
