Matte skin of the face - an indicator of health and beauty. Unfortunately, not always possible to achieve ideal skin condition. For example, oily and problem skin prone to the appearance of pimples and redness.
These skin types are directly dependent on the human diet. If you have oily and problem skin, and you lean on high-calorie, fried foods and flour, then be prepared for the appearance of rash.
Today, many blogs you can find endless tips on how to eat right for oily and problematic skin. Many councils are replicated, having nothing to do with reality.
A dietitian Tatyana Zaletova commented on the most common myths about nutrition with skin problems and explain what they do not like that.
Myth ?1: Blame diet
The research has not been convincingly confirmed by the impact of a product on the disease and the likelihood of exacerbation of acne. However, many noted a subjective positive effect of food restriction. Only these people recommended low-fat diet and elimination of compromised products.
It does not apply to the excess consumption of sweet, fatty, fried, canned - these "contaminants" in our body can cause bacteria overgrowth and disturbance of the gastrointestinal tract, which, in turn, worsen the skin condition.
Myth number 2: The diet is not necessary
A balanced diet - the guarantee of health. In the diet pay attention to the milk products they contain beneficial lactobacilli and vegetables (they are a breeding ground for these bacteria, or rather, there is contained cellulose and pectin). It should be noted that without adequate consumption of fiber and pectin lactobacilli just do not take root. Intestinal microflora is directly responsible for the immune system and the skin condition.
Myth ?3: Assist vitamins.
Not all. Increase the intake of vitamins E, A and C - are natural antioxidants. Better not seek them in tablets and in natural sources. In the case of herbal medicine will help vitamin enrichment: sea buckthorn fruit, walnut oil, fruits chokeberry, black currant, blackberry.
Myth ?4: Ecology does not affect
Very often the problem is in inflammation or allergy. The problem will help solve the rutin - a mandatory component of nutrition in the contaminated territories and environmentally unfriendly. Rutin reduces the body's response (and skin) on allergic and chemical agents. Contained in tea leaves, citrus peel, rose hips and rowan, as well as apples and red wine.
Myth number 5: It is necessary to drink 6 glasses of water
The issue is very complex and controversial. No one has yet proved that it is necessary. No one has proved that it is not necessary. Given that oily skin is often dehydrated, still I recommend to drink at least 25 ml of water per 1 kg of body weight. And it should be just water. You need to drink small sips, so water is better "works."
Myth number 6: The treatment always helps
Unfortunately no. Sometimes, problem skin - the result of genetic programming and remain fat forever. And here is how it will be problem - depends on you. Dietary recommendations to improve the condition of the skin only with strict performance. The slightest indulgence - and the effect is lost. And in order to feel the effect, you need to stick to the diet for at least a month, while the skin cells are not updated.
Myth 7: Treatment should be comprehensive
Unfortunately, sometimes the problem is only the lack of a "cog", but it is not easy to find the damage. Note zinc. This trace mineral is involved in the metabolism of vitamin A and E, that is, they will not work without it.
Zinc is involved in more than 200 processes in our body. Zinc rich oysters, squid, meat, wheat germ, blueberries, sunflower seeds and mushrooms.
