Food for the Skin: Natural Skin Products

Jul 29, 2008
One of the best natural skin products is water. It is the best food for the skin. If we have enough amount of water in our body, our skin would never go dry. It will never have breakouts. Doctors say, drink 8 glasses of water each day, on the contrary though, if we could drink more than 8 glasses a day that would be better.

Having a well-balanced diet also plays an important role to having a healthy skin. Foods rich in Vitamin A like carrots, peaches and tomatoes helps minimize oil production and helps in tissue repair. Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant; it helps flush away toxins from the body. Oranges, citrus fruits are examples of food rich in Vitamin C. Foods rich in Vitamin B Complex like fish, liver, meat and eggs also play an important role in your skin regimen. It aids in reducing stress and maintaining the skin tone. Zinc is also a common antioxidant. Foods rich in zinc include brewers yeast, pumpkin seeds and whole grains. Avoiding foods rich in sugar, white flour and caffeine helps maintain a well-balanced diet. A fitness routine will also be of great help in achieving optimum results from a natural skin care regimen.

Natural skin care products are fast-growing in the market nowadays. They are readily available in the market and promise to give the best results. Here are some tips on how to choose the right natural skin care product:

1. Products which contain fragrances are not natural products. Fragrances contain toxins which are harmful to the skin and may cause irritation.

2. Read labels and be very sure that it really has natural ingredients and what percentage of chemicals is present in the product.
