The end of the summer can also mean the end of healthy looking skin. How can you ensure your skin continues to glow as the winter draws near? Here are three simple ways to nourish the skin without piling on the products.
1. Introduce toasted wheat-germ into your diet. It is a fantastic source of zinc, along with foods like red meat and shellfish. Zinc aids skin renewal and repair, ensuring you look fresh-faced and revitalised throughout the colder months. The fibrous food also contains vitamin E which helps stave off the effects of aging, whilst making the skin more radiant.
2. Wild salmon is packed full of omega-3 fatty acids which keeps the skin moisturised and supple without any expensive face creams. They also have an anti-inflammatory effect so especially beneficial for those suffering dry skin conditions and redness, a very common complaint, as the days get shorter. Walnuts are a great alternative if you don’t eat fish and they contain high levels of magnesium that also helps maintain healthy blood flow to the skin.
3. Rid yourself of free radicals by ensuring you drink an antioxidising detox tea, like Skinny Tea, which is literally bursting with antioxidants, containing 137 times more antioxidants than normal green tea. Fighting the harmful effects of UV rays and other damaging environmental factors, whilst cleansing the body ensuring you’re free from any harmful toxins, will allow your skin to shine even in the dull winter months. There are an abundance of foods high in antioxidants such as spinach and blueberries, but none of these have the concentration of antioxidants you will get from one cup of detox tea.
So if you feel your skin is in need of the boost, concentrate on what you can put in your body not on your skin.
