We all love Winters; cosy sweaters, bright scarves, and fuzzy earmuffs are all things we crave when the temperature drops. However, flaky skin, scaly patches, and itchy itches are unpleasant side effects of the package.
Instead of bowing to winter’s wrath, We want you to fight winter skin from the inside out. No matter how cold it gets, eating healthy foods can give your skin a smooth, rosy glow.
Ways To Fight Winter Skin
Eat one orange and green food (& we are not talking about Gems)
Although Halloween is over, oranges are still in style. Carotenoids are abundant in orange vegetables such as carrots, squash, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes. Carotenoids boost our immunity to the sun and UV rays damage (remember, it is essential to always use sunscreen for protection, even in the winter). They also help prevent acne breakouts and flare-ups, which can leave your skin blemished and itchy. For some winter skin pampering, try a pumpkin yoghurt mask.
Green vegetables like kale and spinach are high in vitamin C, help in skin repair by promoting collagen production and prevent wrinkles. Consume at least one orange.
Snack on fat, a healthy one!
We love fat. We’re not talking about the kind found in pizza and french fries but in salmon fish, avocados, and chia seeds. These foods are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which help with heart health and weight loss. But did you know they can also help you maintain healthy skin? They help in the reduction of inflammation and the prevention of wrinkles.
Avocado is a food that is as good for your stomach as it is for your face. Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat and vitamins A, and E. Vitamin E stimulates collagen production in your skin, resulting in smoother skin and sealing vital moisture.
Have a tea break
It’s cold outside, baby! So why not relax with a hot cup of tea? While you may not be as thirsty in the winter as in the summer, staying hydrated is just as important. Drinking 8-10 glasses of water or tea daily can help flush out toxins, keep your skin from drying out, increase cell turnover, and keep your skin looking fresh and young. Herbal teas are the best way to stay hydrated, and green tea varieties can help reduce inflammation for added beauty.
At Least one colourful fruit in a day!
Antioxidants are abundant in fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, and cranberries. Antioxidants not only fight harmful free radicals in your body but can also help you beat the winter skin blues! Antioxidants protect your skin from sun damage and harsh weather conditions in the winter.
Blueberries also contain compounds that help slow wrinkles and ageing effects. Consider antioxidants in your youth formula, keeping you beautiful, ageless, and energised regardless of the weather. An apple a day could help you avoid wrinkles.
Even if you do your best to protect your skin during winter, you may still be susceptible to certain skin conditions. Consult a doctor immediately if you notice any signs of skin infection or disease. If you have other tips to combat winter blues, inform us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Healthy eating, Healthy skin, and Happy you!
