You can nourish your skin naturally by embracing a healthy diet and lifestyle, by making your skin more resilient to the effects of environmental toxins, and by pampering your skin with nourishing holistic skincare products. Treat your skin and your body gently—give it the respect it deserves, and your skin will reward you with a noticeably healthy glow. When you nourish your skin from the inside out, you will appear more radiant, balanced, and confident.
Nourish your skin from within
One of the most important ways to nourish your skin naturally is by choosing a diet that nourishes your body. Choose unprocessed or minimally processed foods to support the health of your skin and body. Eating a wide array of colorful vegetables and fruits will give you the vitamins you need, including antioxidants. Legumes, whole grains, and lean proteins are also crucial. Some specific foods that are particularly skin-friendly include the following:
- Dried beans and peas
- Lean fish and poultry
- Dark green leafy vegetables
- Wheat germ
- Nuts and seeds
Along with following a nutritious diet, it’s important to drink lots of filtered water every day. Water supports the elasticity of your skin, and it increases blood flow to the skin. As water helps your skin become more resilient, it will be better able to fight off irritants and blemishes.
Be mindful of environmental toxins
Another way to nourish your skin naturally is to be mindful of the effects of environmental toxins. Unfortunately, everyone is exposed to them daily, whether you spend long hours outside or indoors.
For example, if you live in a city, you’ll be exposed to higher levels of airborne pollutants—including tobacco smoke—that generate free radicals. Free radicals can sap your skin’s resiliency, in part by damaging its collagen. The result is an increased risk of premature lines and wrinkles, dryness, and loss of elasticity.
One effective way to combat environmental toxins and free radicals is to consume antioxidants, especially beta carotene and vitamins C and E. You can also apply antioxidants directly to the skin with skincare products like face masks.
Protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays
The sun is essential, but it can also be harmful, especially to your delicate skin. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays causes photodamage. On a short-term basis, this can mean sunburn. But even if you do not burn, UV rays will cause accelerated aging of the skin. This increases the likelihood of premature lines and wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity, and areas of hyperpigmentation.
The best way to naturally nourish your skin is to proactively protect it from damage. Every day, apply a liberal amount of broad-spectrum sunscreen to all exposed skin. Reapply every two hours or as directed by the label. Choose a non-comedogenic sunscreen product, which won’t clog your pores.
