At Works With Water, we are always talking about the link between being nutrition aware and essential skincare which is why we always come back to it. Lifestyle changes including dietary changes can be difficult especially if you are an emotional eater, but if you have a goal e.g clearer skin/complexion, it should help the transition from unhealthy eating to healthy eating easier and more tolerable. Here are a few reasons to consider in order for you to successfully change your diet for the better:

Hydration for Essential Skincare

Water is something we truly believe in. The adult body is made up of approximately 60% water so we know drinking water fuels the body, helps keep the body and skin hydrated as well as helps all cells travel around the body efficiently. Hydrated skin is healthier and therefore drinking water is a great idea especially when trying to achieve a clearer complexion. It so easy to do. Up your water intake and remove caffeinated or sugary drinks for clearer skin.

Antioxidants Are Essential Skincare

Vitamins and minerals are abundant in antioxidants. Antioxidants are important as they help prevent cellular damage to skin cells as well as all cells within the body. Cellular damage to skin cells can cause premature skin ageing, dehydration and destroy the integrity of skin cells. Dehydration causes an over-production of sebum which can cause breakouts. Damaged skin is also susceptible to breakouts.

Some antioxidants like those found in vitamin C and E actually help skin produce collagen, improving skins elasticity and strength. All fruits and vegetables are abundant in antioxidants so it is important to get plenty of these during the day – the more colourful, the better. If you’re not keen on fruit or veg snacking, simply make your own smoothie, packed full of antioxidants for improved skin health.

Essential Fatty Acids

Omega-3 essential fatty acids are found in fish such as salmon or mackerel. Omega-3 is important to skin health as it helps keep skin supple, and moisturised. It also helps reduce inflammation in the body responsible for contributing to worsening acne.

Fatty fish also contain the powerful antioxidant Vitamin E, also known for its contribution towards skin health, protecting skin from damage caused by free radical cell damage. These fish are a great source of protein, required for skin integrity.

Zinc is also plentiful in fatty fish, helping regulate inflammation, promote cellular regeneration and overall skin health.

If you are not keen on eating fish, you can choose to buy fish oil supplements. Of course, nothing is better for you than the fresh variety, but fish supplements can provide some of these benefits to skin also. But if you can eat fish – do. Skin health will be noticeable.

Avoid Sugary Foods

Foods high in sugar such as junk food, processed foods, sugary drinks and foods high in saturated fats have a high glycaemic level which actually contribute to inflammation of the skin and worsen breakouts. Try to avoid at all costs.

Follow these few simple tips and simultaneously add a sachet of 100% natural help: clear skin every day and you will be fighting the bacteria associated with acne. Just one sachet a day of help: clear skin will show results within 4-6 weeks.
