Most people think that applying a face pack, applying cream and bleaching the face to enhance the glow of the skin increases the beauty of the skin. Yes, though it partially helps, it is only a part of beauty care. However, this care is again external only.
To protect our skin, not only taking care of the skin from outside aids but also internal care through food is needed,” says Dr. Anuradha K. C., a doctor at Kakunje Ayurvedic Wellness Clinic. If there is stress in our day-to-day life, it affects our skin a lot. Apart from this, 7 to 8 hours of sleep per day is essential for glowing skin.
Hormonal imbalance too can have several adverse effects on our skin. In addition, direct exposure of our skin to the sun also affects the skin.
When it comes to diet, it is best to reduce the amount of carbohydrates, and processed food as much as possible. It is best to consume fruits such as avocados, bananas, vegetables, dry fruits, nuts and seeds. Along with these, it is also important to ensure that our digestion is good for good health of the skin.
Protein, Omega3, micronutrients, and Vitamin B12, all of these are very helpful in replenishing and protecting our skin.
