Remember I covered 10 things vitamin C can do for your skin awhile back? In that entry, I had looked at most of the benefits from using vitamin C topically. Interestingly, I’ve read that oral consumption of vitamin C does nothing for our skin. However, I found some studies that state otherwise. So I thought I’ll just list them here as food for your consideration.
This was supposed to be my lunchbox but ended up, I’m using it for breakfast instead. Actually, breakfast has become my biggest meal of the day and so I try to eat something more substantial. Instead of the usual bread, I’ve been eating sweet potatoes. Apparently, sweet potatoes have lower carb content compared to the regular potatoes, which means, their glycemic load is lower. In addition, I read that they come with high levels of vitamins A,C, E, fiber and beta-carotene. Hence, sweet potatoes are great to combat free radicals which causes skin aging. Not only that, they’ve great anti-inflammatory nutrients and are good to restore radiance to our skin.
I’ve always thought it so strange that experts in dermatology kept saying that diet has nothing to do with the way our skin looks or that there are no connections between diet and acne. Yet, based on a personal experience, I know that what I eat affects my skin. In fact, what I used to eat contributed to my acne because as soon as I cleaned my diet up, my acne also stopped popping up. So surely it behooves us to understand how to eat right in order to keep acne at bay.
Oral beauty supplements are definitely my kind of thing. In fact, they are an integral part of my daily beauty routine. I was taking the AFC Collagen pills and had stopped to try S-Skin for the past three weeks. I realized that this product is readily available at the pharmacies but I had totally missed it. Anyway, I doubt I would have bought it had it not been introduced to me. I mean, there are just so many beauty supplements out in the market now! But I’ve been taking S-Skin for three weeks now and am pretty impressed with what I’m seeing. This is a beauty supplement that not only firms the skin but blocks UV and prevents melanin formation. Hey, that’s exactly what my skin needs!
