What 5 ingredients should you be consuming to improve your skin?

An effective facial care routine is extremely important to keep our skin healthy and radiant. This ranges from the correct selection of your products seeking natural and friendly formulas with the natural barrier of your skin, to ethical aspects such as the selection of vegan and cruelty-free products.

However, the health of your skin is also influenced by the food you eat. For instance, a diet rich in highly processed foods, instant foods, fast foods, and refined carbohydrates has an inflammatory effect that aggravates certain skin conditions such as acne, textured skin, and oily skin just to mention a few.

For this reason, we created a list of 5 ingredients that you have to incorporate into your diet to nourish your skin and support the efforts you make with your facial care products to obtain the best results.

1. Avocados- Thanks to its rich content in monounsaturated fats, avocado is perfect for rejuvenating and moisturizing our skin, avoiding expression lines. Additionally, these fats help lubricate our digestive system, allowing the absorption of vitamins and making our cell membranes stronger.

3. Berries- Among the outstanding and most nutritious contributions that red fruits offer, is their high content of antioxidants. Antioxidants are a type of nutrient that prevents the aggression of free radicals responsible for the premature aging of our cells, and the appearance of the first wrinkles on our skin.
