The right nutrition for the skin
We all know that a person’s state of health is determined, first of all, by a way of life, and, last but not least, by nutrition - a source of energy to support life and ensure full development. And, of course, not only health, but also external attractiveness is directly related to proper nutrition.
In order to eat properly, just follow a few simple rules.
The diet should be balanced in terms of protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. For the optimal ratio of all nutrients, try to include in your daily menu products of both animal and vegetable origin.
Vitamins are very important for the full functioning of our body. They make it possible to fill in nutritional deficiencies, moisturize the skin and have a smoothing effect (for example, vitamin B5 gives the skin elasticity), stimulate cell growth and metabolism (vitamin C), promote cell restoration and tissue regeneration (vitamin D). Vitamins A, E, F, PP are very useful for humans, especially for the skin.
However, only a few vitamins are synthesized in the body itself, most of which we get with food.
Vitamin A is found only in products of animal origin: animal and fish liver, caviar and fish oil, butter and ghee, cheese, cream, milk, egg yolk. In plant foods, vitamin A is found in the form of provitamins, which are found in carrots, red peppers, tomato fruits, spinach leaves, sorrel, lettuce, rose hips, apricot, rowan, sea buckthorn, parsley, celery, green onions, pumpkin and other vegetables.
B vitamins are present in brewer's yeast, legumes and cereals, yeast, liver, milk and dairy products, and fish.
Vitamin C is abundant in lemons, tomatoes, pumpkin, radish, beets, cucumbers, eggplant, zucchini, potatoes, cabbage, carrots, and also in red currants.
Sources of vitamin D are cow oil, tuna liver oil, cod and other fish, some fruits and vegetables.
Vitamin E , which moisturizes the skin well, is found in many leguminous plants, cereals, lettuce, celery, spinach, carrots and other vegetables.
Vitamin F is found in olive, almond and linseed oils, pork fat, a small amount is present in other fats.
Vitamin P is found in fruits of tomato and pepper, various types of cabbage, in table beets, sorrel, carrots, potatoes, parsley and celery. In addition, vitamin P can be found in tea (especially green), rosehip, lemon, persimmon, blackcurrant and aronia, plums, chillies, buckwheat.
Vitamin PP is present in sufficient amounts in the kidneys, liver, yeast, meat, milk, as well as in peas, beans, and wheat flour. It is best absorbed with animal products.
Do not forget that the absence of a sufficient amount of vitamins in combination with the influence of other adverse external environmental factors significantly weakens the body's defenses. Therefore, improper nutrition can cause allergies, which in the second half of the 20th century became one of the most common chronic diseases among urban residents.
To supplement the necessary vitamins and minerals, you can take multivitamin complexes with minerals.
Try to make your daily diet diverse, include healthy and high-quality foods. By combining them, you can create a balanced menu without changing radically your own preferences in choosing foods, cooking and eating food. Do not avoid the consumption of substances necessary for the body, following a strict diet. Instead of excluding products from your menu, just use them in moderation.
