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.
