They say beauty comes from within, what can I eat for radiant skin?

A. Avoiding the sun, cleansing your skin gently and applying moisturizers regularly are all simple ways of taking care of your skin and maintain its radiance 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.

Below are some nutritional tips that help keep your skin glowing:

  • Daily consumption of fiber as it helps keep the colon clean and may remove toxins from the body before they reach the skin (Examples: Whole Grains such as Nestlé FITNESS® Cereal, Fresh fruits and vegetable).
  • Eat a low fat diet as high fat consumption may elevate hormone levels in the body that cause blemishes on the skin.
  • Avoid fried foods as they were found to increase break outs.
  • Limit salt intake and avoid high salted snacks such as chips, lunch meats, canned foods, and salted popcorn.
  • Avoid highly processed carbohydrates such as sodas, candy, and desserts.
  • Substitute coffee with Nescafé® DECAF (3-4 cups per day).
  • Don’t skip meals, start your day with a good breakfast containing protein and complex carbohydrate such as whole wheat bread or FITNESS® cereal.
  • Commit to 2-3 sessions of exercise a week
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
  • Obtaining enough vitamin E into diet. It is 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. Selecting foods rich in vitamin E can easily help you meet your daily recommendation. For example, 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. It is important to note that even though 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!
