We all know that stress can directly affect our skin and you probably know that what you eat can as well.  But did you know that only certain areas of our face are affected?

When you eat past 8pm at night or over indulge on a regular basis, you may find that you breakout between your eyes and across your forehead.  If you tend to break out along your jaw line, it is more likely that you are stressed in some way.  Caffeine and alcohol will affect the hydration levels in your skin, as will air conditioning/heating.  The best way to combat this is to reduce your consumption of alcohol or coffee to just one per day, drink plenty of water and look into a hydrating serum or booster to protect your skin from external elements.

Know how foods can influence your skin radiance:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables: –  If you are fond of fresh fruits and vegetables and have them in abundance, you will find its reflection on your skin – with a fresh glow and radiance. Fruits are rich in minerals, antioxidants, fibres and vitamins which have immense healing powers.
  • Potatoes (baked):–  Freshly baked potatoes will fulfill the copper requirements of your skin – essential for supporting your skin structure.
  • Soybeans: –  Eat plenty of soybeans if you suffer from skin infections such as eczema, as it has anti-inflammatory properties which make the skin free from allergic reactions.
  • Avocados:-   These are rich in b-complex and essential oils which helps to nourish the skin inside and out. Niacin is actively present in avocados, which helps to calm down and soothe irritated skin.
  • Caffeine and Alcohol:-  If you desire a hydrated and glowing skin stay away from alcohol and caffeine, as these can really cause havoc to your skin. Green tea can be a good alternative if you wish to replace these two beverages.
  • Water:-  Consume plenty of water throughout the day as your body loses 2.5 litres of water every day on an average and you need to make up for that loss or else it will reflect on your skin.
