7 Ways Your Diet Affects Your Skin ...


The way you eat doesn’t just affect your mood and your weight, there are also many ways your diet affects your skin. Even if you aren’t “dieting,” per se, the foods you eat truly do give you the skin you have. I know, because I’ve experienced this firsthand. As someone who used to suffer from acne, dry skin and even wrinkles from too much sun and poor food choices, I can tell you that changing my eating habits was the best thing I ever did for my skin. I’d like to share my tips for understanding ways your diet affects your skin, in case you need a little assistance in this area too.

1. Dryness

Dry skin is one of the ways your diet affects your skin, more than any other. If you’re not eating enough healthy fats, your body is devoid of essential fatty acids that keep your skin moist and supple, preventing dryness from the inside out. Also, eating a healthy diet doesn’t mean going fat free. For one, without certain fats, your body can’t absorb the nutrients you’re actually eating. Healthy fats help your body absorb those nutrients, and give you great skin as a result. Choose healthy fats from raw nuts and seeds, avocados, unsweetened coconut, wild fatty fish and hemp or olive oil.
