A balanced diet is essential for beautiful and healthy skin. Dry skin requires a sufficient amount of vitamins, proteins and trace elements in combination with daily cosmetic procedures.
Typically, dry skin involves an increase in the amount of plant proteins. To do this, the diet includes fresh vegetables and fruits, cereals, nuts, seeds. The sulfur content in food makes the skin not only smoother, but also more youthful and toned. For this purpose, it is necessary to eat onions, garlic, eggs, asparagus. Dry skin requires the intake of alpha-hydroxy acids, which are found in apples, citrus crops, milk, tomatoes, black currants, grapes, and sugar beets. It has been proven that alpha hydroxy acids are involved in the process of regeneration, that is, the formation of new skin cells. Vegetables with yellow and orange color are essential for people with dry skin type, as they contain a large amount of beta-carotene (vitamin A), which directly affects on the condition of the skin. The most common vegetable with carotene content is carrots. Say no to fatty and fried foods, because when vegetable fats are heated, free radicals are formed, which are the worst enemies of beauty. Also, cut back on the amount of sugar, chocolate, alcohol, coffee consumed. These products contain diuretics, which cause the excretion of fluid from the body. And together with the liquid, useful trace elements and minerals leave the body. Of course, with dry skin, you need to consume a large amount of liquid (mainly non-carbonated mineral water). The average liquid volume is at least two liters. This will normalize the water balance in the body and ensure the hydration of skin cells. Do not forget about cleansing procedures and the application of nourishing and moisturizing masks, which, combined with proper nutrition, will make your skin beautiful and toned.
