A balanced diet ’is good for the skin’
Eating a healthy balanced diet has a positive effect both on our internal health and also on our hair, skin and nails, so now might be a good time to look into taking nutritional supplements if you feel your diet is lacking in certain areas.
As the Canadian National pointed out, incorporating plenty of fresh veggies, proteins and good fats into your mealtimes can really show in your skin, with certain foods - including hemp seed oil, fish, legumes and lean meat - helping to build muscle, boost collagen and improve cellular function.
Proteins can also work to reduce inflammation by balancing blood sugar and get the brain firing on all cylinders.
Green leafy vegetables are also good for you, the publication noted.
"They help reverse and prevent disease with their powerful antioxidants that block inflammation and detox the body of free radicals. They keep the blood clean and healthy and provide minerals and vitamins that give skin elasticity and suppleness," it said, adding that kale, chard, collards, wheatgrass and barley grass are great mixed into a salad and eaten every day.
Autumn is the perfect time for blackberry picking and the best part is that the fruit can be found for free on country walks, so make sure you take a coat with deep pockets next time you go for a stroll. Berries contain antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, which can work to prevent skin damage while contributing to collagen production. Have them fresh, frozen or even blended into a smoothie for a morning pick-me-up.
The newspaper also posited that lentils are great for the digestion as they are "loaded with fibre", helping the body eliminate toxins as well as being low-glycemic and rich in protein. Lentils are versatile and can be cooked in a variety of different ways, so you can have fun experimenting with healthy recipes.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
