You are what you eat.’
A commonly used phrase, but is it as commonly practiced? We always hear about diets for weight loss, to bulk up, etc. but do you know that your diet can affect your skin too? Other than skincare, the things you eat can actually make your skin look good and feel better. In this article, we have prepared three tips that can hopefully get you closer to that #nofilter flawless skin!
#1: Eat food rich in Vitamin C!
Vitamin C helps boost collagen production, aids in skin repair and serves as a protective antioxidant. Furthermore, it also has various health benefits such as strengthening of the immune system, lowering the risk of cancer, and boosting cardiovascular health. Some food that are rich in vitamin C include guavas, bell peppers, kiwifruit, strawberries, oranges, papayas, broccoli, tomatoes, kale, and snow peas. Do try adding these to your diet!
#2 Stay hydrated.
If you are on your way to achieving flawless skin - water is your best friend. It is one of the simplest and most effective ways to boost the glow in your skin and keep your tissues in their best condition. An average person should drink about 8 cups a day, but it varies from person to person. But one thing is for sure, drink up every day!
#3 Cut down on sugar.
It’s time to say goodbye to tea-time muffins, indulging in late night ice-cream cravings, and those leftover pineapple tarts lying around your house. Sugar is proven to be one of the main saboteurs of good skin! It is an inflammatory food, which means that when you consume a lot of sugar, after it is processed, it goes directly into your gut and into your bloodstream, leading to inflammation. In order to achieve good results, some sacrifices have to be made! Try cutting down food containing processed sugars for better skin.
It is just as important to take note of what goes into your body as what goes on to your skin. With Sigi Skin, you will never have to worry about the kind of products that you apply to your skin, as our ingredients are vegan, cruelty free and non-toxic!
