Best diet to keep skin glow

Eating healthy food is most important things for skin. No matter how many skin care products you apply to the outside of your skin, if you aren’t eating healthy food to nourish your skin from within, your skin will look dull, unhealthy and undernourished. If you are loading up on sugary drinks, junk food, and processed snacks, you are very likely to have acne prone, dull looking skin.

Your skin is the largest and most important organ known to your body. It has a tough job filtering toxins that you are exposed to as you move about your day. Your skin also works to hold moisture in your body so you don’t become dehydrated. Skin protects your blood and organs from germs to keep you healthy. 

We spend lots of time and money considering what we put on our faces. But how much do you think about whether or not you're following a clear skin diet? In the past, dermatologists maintained that unless you wipe greasy fingers on your face, food doesn't cause zits.

How Diet Affects Your Skin

“I tell my patients that what they put in their mouths is as important as the products they apply on their skin,” says Dr. Manju Keshari (Dermatologist of KMEPS Skin Clinic), who’s written her about eating healthy foods. Foods get digested and broken down into vitamins, minerals and amino acids that your body can use to build the healthy skin. If you crash diet or eat highly processed foods, your skin won’t be as strong and supple as it could be.

What to Eat for Glowing Skin

Dr. Manju Keshari Says that best skin diet is one that involves eating vegetables of different colors for every meal and a green juice every day You probably think about how nutrition affects your internal health and your weight, but eating the right foods can also improve the quality of your skin.

Your Diet and Your Skin

Here are some of the best foods you can incorporate into your diet to improve your complexion:

  • Low-Fat Dairy products – one of the most important components of a healthy skin diet is vitamin A, which can be found in low-fat dairy products.  
  • High antioxidant content: Blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, and plums – these foods contain high antioxidant content, which provides an array of benefits for the healthy skin. 
  • Essential fatty acids Contents: Salmon, walnuts, canola oil, and flaxseed – these seemingly unrelated foods each deliver essential fatty acids, which are key elements in a healthy diet. 
  • Healthy oils – these contain more than essential fatty acids, which helps to keep skin lubricated and keeps it looking and feeling healthier overall.  
  • Water – while the amount needed every day varies, it continues to remain undisputed that it plays a significant role in good hydration, which is essential for your healthy skin diet.

How laser hair removal is better than Waxing

Laser hair removal and waxing are two popular procedures that women and men. Hair removal is a major concern for many people. Some of the most popular forms of temporary hair removal include shaving, waxing, tweezing and using depilatory creams.  If you do decide to remove unwanted hair, you may not be exactly sure which method is best for you. Here we clear all your worries about it.
Waxing is a semi-permanent method of hair removal because hair grows back after four to six weeks after treatment in the waxed area. It involves applying warm wax onto the hairy area and then smoothing down a wax strip on top.  

What Hurts More: Laser Hair Removal or Wax?

Laser hair removal can lead to a permanent reduction in the number of hairs and reduce their thickness and appearance. Waxing does pull hair out by their roots, but the same number of hairs will grow back.

The laser hair removal does not expel a lot of hair at one time. It takes six to eight sessions to finish a laser hair expulsion. What's more, in each session, just 10 percent of hair is removed. So there is no surge and no agony in this treatment.

Laser hair removal does not hurt more than waxing as the total procedure is not completed at one time. It is safer than waxing, causes no bleeding, and quicker than waxing also.

Laser Hair Removal vs waxing: Which one is best?

Laser hair removal is the best, to some extent, a permanent hair removal treatment. This hair removing process is accurate and safe. In this method, you have no worrisome also about re-growth of hair.

Waxing has been around since long times and is one of the oldest forms of hair removal. While it can leave you with super smooth skin, there’s certainly the pain factor to take into account and potential problems within growing hairs to contend with.

Benefits of waxing
