Nutrition and Ethnic Skin Care
Whether it's through taking a supplement, the encouragement of good eating habits or the careful selection of natural ingredients ethnic beauty is your goal. It seems as though another goal of yours is to, not just live longer, but have a much more healthier lifestyle and have soft, radiant, youthful looking skin at the same time.
Antioxidants – While known to reduce inflammation and even reverse some of the damage caused by heart disease, they can be found in simple foods, like avocado’s and green teas. Yet not everyone is open to giving them a try.
What people are willing to try are those foods that are full of sugars, carbohydrates and bad fats. These "bad fats" elevate your cholesterol levels, promote inflammation and cause heart disease. Inflammation may be the main culprit in cancer, aging and poor skin.
The intake of sugar and simple carbohydrates may also affect your skin's appearance and cause you to feel dehydrated.
Antioxidant's and Ethnic Beauties
Let's get back to antioxidants. Antioxidants are vitamins or nutrients that protect your body from stress by fighting off free radicals. Free radicals are reactive molecules that cause damage to your body, especially your skin.
The best-known antioxidant is Vitamin E, which helps your body fight heart disease and inflammation. It’s thought to give your skin added protection against sun damage and aging. However, it takes two-to-three weeks for enough vitamin E to build up in your skin before its protection actually goes into effect.
Vitamin C is another antioxidant and contributes to the collagen build up and wound healing in your skin.
Beans, Berries, Green Foods and Ethnic Skin
Blueberries are the poster child for antioxidants but most berries are a great source. It's been found that beans are also rich in antioxidants as well as the spices: cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon in small amounts.
But, what about your green foods? No eating regimen is complete without eating green foods like kale, spinach and broccoli. The green foods give you chlorophyll and keep your blood clean.
Beautiful skin is a direct result of eating the best foods, feeding your skin from within and using Ethnic Skin care products for maintaining the health of your skin topically.
