Protect your skin

Protect your skin

For a woman in adulthood, the epidermis is almost the main pain point.

Is it possible to cope with the ongoing and, alas, inevitable changes, return the skin shine and radiance? Of course, there are no single recipes, but we offer you several recommendations that will help you cope with the problem.

When we talk about preserving the youthfulness of the skin, first of all we mean various creams and care products. Of course, choosing a good face and body cream is already a big deal. However, no matter how expensive it is and no matter what miracles it promises, in fact, the depth of penetration of any external cosmetics into the epidermis layer is small (no more than 0.1 mm!), Which means that they cannot have a significant effect on the condition of the skin …

Experts believe that the most reasonable thing is to nourish the skin not only and not so much from the outside as from the inside. We are talking about the so-called nutricosmetics.

First of all, a person needs proteins, and the skin, accordingly, needs collagen, which maintains its elasticity. It is added to creams, shampoos, and shower gels. However, the presence of collagen in various cosmetics is nothing more than a gimmick of manufacturers. It cannot integrate itself into the molecules of the skin!

Therefore, proteins must be obtained from food – meat, dairy products, legumes, fish, eggs, whole grains.

The skin also needs polyunsaturated fats. They are found in oily sea fish and vegetable oils.

Antioxidants – vitamins A, E, C, lycopene, lutein – will help the skin breathe. They are full of them in berries, fruits, these substances can be obtained with fruit drinks and freshly squeezed juices.

Trace minerals are also involved in building our main protective barrier, and they also have antioxidant activity. Selenium, zinc, manganese, vitamin C – these are substances that improve the blood supply to the skin. You can get them from vegetables, fruits, beef, pork, nuts, fish and eggs.

The skin needs rutin, calcium, magnesium, potassium, flavonoids and fats as nutrients. They are found in salmon, bananas, yoghurts, beef, milk, wholemeal bread, cheese.

We must not forget that our body mostly consists of water, and the skin needs it constantly. To the liquid that you get from soup, fruits, vegetables, you need to add another five glasses of water. Alas, black tea, or even more so coffee, will not cope with this task.


Breakfast… Oatmeal with apple and cinnamon (they contain dietary fiber and B vitamins).

Lunch… Muesli with a glass of kefir or a granola bar.

Dinner… Fresh vegetable salad with herbs, olive oil and lime juice. Broccoli soup (this vegetable eliminates the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation and even reduces the likelihood of developing cancer). Boiled trout (source of omega-3). Fruit drink, freshly squeezed juice or berry compote.

Afternoon snack… You need a source of protein and amino acids, such as a glass of milk.

Dinner… Curd dish, fermented milk drink, fruits or berries.
