Foods To Eat That Keep Your Skin Hydrated

foods to eat to stay hydrated

Certain individuals are more prone to dry skin than others. And some parts of the world have an atmosphere that seems completely lacking when it comes to humidity or moisture. If dry skin has become a problem for you, you probably already know what needs to be done. You need to keep your skin hydrated. But is that easier said than done? Not necessarily, as long as you’re willing to make a few changes in your diet and lifestyle or skincare regime.

Make Lifestyle Changes For More Hydrated Skin

Of course, you want to keep your skin clean. Skin that isn’t clean is an open invitation to a bad complexion. But washing your face too many times a day can actually help dry it out. Keep your skin clean, yes, but don’t overdo it with excessive washing and make sure you use cleansers that are not harsh. The more natural, the better. Examples of ideal cleansing products are Skintrium’s Carrera White Corrective Cleansing Solid and the Skin Soho Soya White Cleansing Solid which helps to restore proper balance, clean and brighten skin. Caring for your skin on a daily basis, in the proper manner, does not have to apply to just your face either. Overall skin care can make your whole body feel clean, fresh, hydrated, and revitalized.

Let’s See What Diet Can Do

Here are a few suggestions for skin hydrating foods to include in your diet. These food products can determine how what you eat can have an effect on the moisture level of your skin:

  • Green leafy vegetables – Vitamins E, B, and A are found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach. Also contained in this food item, and critical for hydrated skin, are phytochemicals and omega-3 fatty acids. In addition to hydration, they help damaged skin heal.
  • Sweet potatoes – Parched skin will be overjoyed at the amount of beta-carotene you will consume through sweet potatoes. Not only does beta-carotene help prevent dry skin, but it also battles against damage by the sun. And collagen repair is improved thanks to the vitamin C and A found in sweet potatoes.
  • Avocados – Helping skin stay moisturized and combining with vitamins C and E, the monounsaturated fats in avocados make skin look healthier and stay hydrated.
  • Pineapple – Bromelain, a special enzyme found in pineapples, assists in toxin removal allowing your skin to feel and look more hydrated. Additionally, it improves circulation allowing more nutrients to reach skin cells thereby improving your skin’s moisture level.
  • Cucumbers – Yes, cucumbers have extremely high water content, but they also offer beneficial nutrients for your skin. To increase the elasticity and skin moisture, they contain silica. To prevent dryness and act as an anti-inflammatory, they contain caffeic acid (which also can be useful in lessening eye puffiness).
  • Walnuts – The omega-3 fatty acids found in walnuts help skin stay soft. Additionally, to help with maintaining moisture levels and proper skin nutrition, they assist cell membrane in staying fluid and flexible. Finally, anti-inflammatory properties found in omega-3 fatty acids fight against skin becoming dry as a result of inflammation.
  • Almonds – As already seen here, vitamin E has amazing properties when it comes to healthy, hydrated skin. And almonds are a good source of vitamin E (which is an antioxidant). This source of monounsaturated fat will greatly perpetuate turning dry, flaky skin to skin that is soft and supple.
