Bees aren’t the only ones that should be “buzzing” about honey. You should too for your skin’s sake. Honey is a natural humectant, which means that it both attracts moisture and helps lock it in. In other words, honey can help moisturize your skin. So if you have been having issues with dry skin, start adding honey to your bath water.
You think using honey to bathe is weird? Well just know honey was used in WWII to treat battle wounds and prevent infections such as MSRA. Also, a lot of these skin-care products have honey as an ingredient. So if you want glowing skin, keep a jar of raw honey by the bath tub.
Most people are aware of the health benefits of fish, oysters and other seafood. However, most people do not know how beneficial they are to the skin. The primary nutrients that make fish so good for your complexion are zinc and omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce skin dryness and inflammation. Inflammation can cause skin to age faster; thereby causing skin wrinkles. One study linked deficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids to the skin conditions, eczema and psoriasis.
Zinc can help ward off skin acne because it helps metabolize testosterone; something that halts production of an oily substance caused sebum, a primary cause of acne. Also, zinc kills dead skin cells and aid production of new ones. So next time you are at a fancy restaurant, you may want to order the Filet Mignon.
If you don’t get enough or dislike fish, then invest in a quality fish oil supplement.
Bonus Fact: Nuts and flaxseed oil also provide adequate amounts of zinc and omega 3 fatty acids
That’s get this straight: Egg yolks are good for you. I have no clue who said egg whites are only healthy. Egg yolks are an important source of vitamin A, which helps your skin repair itself. In addition, egg yolks are also a source of biotin which is essential for healthy skin and nails. Egg white contains protein that can help tighten up the skin. Overall, both sides of the egg are healthy for you; especially for our skin.
Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner, make sure you eat these 3 foods for glowing, healthy skin.
