Avoiding the sun, cleansing your skin gently and applying moisturisers regularly! Who hasn’t heard about these tips that can help keep the skin young? In fact, these simple skin-care habits will help protect your skin, and keep it healthy and glowing for many years. Additionally, a crucial factor to healthy skin is your diet. Having a balanced diet with plenty of vitamin and mineral-rich foods, drinking an adequate amount of water, and nurturing the skin from the inside will complement every other outer skin-care habit.
Vitamin E is essential for healthy skin
It’s a very common ingredient in skin care beauty products. But what is the role of vitamin E and how can you include it in your diet?
The answer is that vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin and an important antioxidant that helps protect cells from everyday damages like heat, sun, smoking and pollution, thereby playing a role in maintaining healthy skin.
The missing E in our diets
Although vitamin E is essential, very few of us actually meet the recommended intake of 15 milligrams-per-day. According to research, women in particular consume less than half of what the body needs! This is because foods that are common in our diet are considered poor sources of the Vitamin. For example, two slices of white bread contain less than one milligram of vitamin E. However, selecting foods rich in vitamin E can easily help you meet your daily recommendation. For example, one handful of almonds, an excellent source of vitamin E, provides half of your daily needs of this important vitamin.
Getting Your E is E-asy
You can get your daily dose of vitamin E from foods such as fortified breakfast cereals, whole-grains, seeds (especially sunflower seeds), nuts (hazelnuts and almonds), spinach and other dark, green leafy vegetables (spinach, chicory, parsley), oily fish, vegetable oils, carrots, avocados, mangoes, broccoli, papaya and peanut butter.
Good to remember:
Yes it’s true that nuts and seeds are good sources of vitamin E, but keep in mind that they are also rich in calories! So remember to keep your consumption to a handful!
Besides all this, you should also try to maintain a balanced diet every day that includes a variety of vitamin E sources for a healthy body as well as young and glowing skin.
