Healthy skin from the inside: 3 tips for improved skin

We tend to use a thousand different skin care products, but sometimes nothing seems to work well. Instead of exaggering external skin care, it is therefore sometimes advisable to pay attention to inner care. How does this work? Quite easy: a healthy diet is the base for a healthy body. And as the body's largest organ, the skin benefits from balanced diet and sports quiet as well as the rest. The following 3 tips have researched those things you should look out for in your diet and will tell you what is particular beneficial for you.

Carrots: Perfect for eyes and skin

Why do bunnies not need glasses? Because they eat a bunch of carrots! Most of us are aware that beta-carotene (a precursor of vitamin A) contained in carrots is beneficial for our eyes. But beta-carotene is not only advantageous with respect to this fact, but also essential for skin cell growth and protects from DNA-damages caused e.g. by sun burns. A lack of vitamin A is therefore most often associated with symptoms regarding the skin and hair: hair loss, dry skin and dry nails. There is another super weapon associated with carrots and that's iron: iron deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies in modern societies and leads to chronic fatigue, headaches and, among other things, hairloss. Cardamon, parsley or cinnamon show relatively high iron content, and so do carrots. But please be aware to avoid caroteens when trying to bleach your skin as this will trigger the melanin production of your skin and thus increase pigmentation!

Vitamin E + C: Citrus fruit and walnuts for beautiful skin

I'm sure you have learned by now that vitamins are essentially a healthy diet and they are important for beautiful skin as well. Vitamin C firms skin, works against premature aging and is thus preserving a youthful skin relief.  It is also capable of binding free radicals caused by environmental pollutants, supporting wound healing and lightening pigmentation errors. As you have probably already guessed citrus fruit are a good source of vitamin C.

Vitamin E is quite a special vitamin as well and it consists of several substances, not just a singular vitamin. The powerful antioxidants foster wound healing and help to even out unwanted scars. Vitamin E is even used in preventive care of Alzheimer's disease as it is essential for a well functioning brain. Walnuts and whole grain products contain plemnty of vitamin E, so do sunflower seed oil and olive oil. To support your healthy diet best, we recommend Doris Wagner Cosmetics products– the NAVI Pure Refreshing Cleansing Gel for example contains vitamin C as well as vitamin E.

Anti-Aging with Lycopene

Yes, you can prevent the premature signs of aging. Lycopene plays an essential roles in this field: it is a substance belonging to the class of cartotenoids. Its antioxidant function protects cells from cell damage and thus prevents premature skin aging. It's a natural anti-aging effect that you can simply eat- Lycopene is found best in tomatoes, watermelons and blueberries.
