Eat And Drink Your Way To Healthy Skin

Posted on

Sunspots, wrinkles, fine lines, and acne all affect the look of your skin. Various types of makeup, creams, lotions, serums, and procedures may mask or correct these skin imperfections, but restoring your skin back to a healthy, attractive state is possible with proper understanding and following a healthy lifestyle. With this guide, you will learn a few tips for improving the look and underlying health of your skin in a natural manner.


Eating a well-balanced diet is essential for your physical health and wellness. Certain foods benefit your heart health while others can improve your digestive system. While surprising to hear, eating certain foods can also improve the health of the largest organ on your body – your skin.

Inflammation in the body affects your skin, causing redness, dryness that can cause wrinkles, and hormonal changes that lead to acne. By reducing your intake of inflammatory foods, you can improve the health of your skin.  Gluten, sugar, and dairy cause inflammation, so limit the amount of these foods you consume each day.

Probiotics are essential for digestion, which remove waste from the body. Proper removal of waste is a form of detoxification that benefits your skin, as well. Consider taking a probiotic supplement or eating yogurt that is made with whole milk and no/low sugar each day.

Many people believe that chocolate causes acne, but this is actually a myth that needs to be addressed because good quality, dark chocolate is actually good for your skin. Dark chocolate contains anti-inflammatory properties that improve the look, feel, and health of your skin. Enjoy a small piece of dark chocolate each day.


Hydration is imperative for your skin's health, as well. Unfortunately, most people do not realize their dehydration is causing permanent skin issues.

Dehydration causes your skin to produce less collagen, which results in imbalances that lead to dry, cracking skin. Without a sufficient amount of collagen, you will most likely develop fine lines and wrinkles or even blemishes due to hormonal imbalances.  

Drinking the recommended amount of water each day will ensure your skin stays healthy, elastic, youthful, and attractive. Each day, consume between 8 and 10 glasses of water to stay hydrated. If you exercise or spend a lot of time in the heat, more water will be necessary to prevent dehydration.

Your skin deserves some attention. With this guide and your dermatologist's help, you can eat and drink your way to healthy skin. Reach out to a business like Heibel Dermatology to learn more.
