Lifestyle Tips for Healthy Skin: A Strategy for Wellness -- Eat a Healthy Diet

Low-nutrient foods, such as sugar and refined carbohydrates, will not provide the vitamins and minerals your skin needs.  Choose unprocessed organic foods, high in antioxidants.  Organic foods that contain generous amounts of beta carotene (carrots, apricots, and squash), vitamin C (oranges and peppers), vitamin E (cold-pressed oils, nuts and seeds), selenium (tuna, garlic, onions and broccoli) and zinc (whole grains, most seafood, and onions) are preferred.  Essential fatty acids, such as those in oily fish, olive and flaxseed oil, are important for skin repair.  Eat high-fiber fruits, vegetables, whole grain bread and cereals, brown rice and balance your sodium to potassium ratio.

Drink Distilled or Reverse Osmosis Water
Our bodies are made up of 50-70% water, so its important to drink water to the degree that you urinate approximately every 3 hours.  Water flushes out wastes, and acts as an internal moisturizer, keeping skin hydrated and supple.  The cleanest water available is distilled or that which is processed through reverse osmosis.  Most bottled water is not distilled or filtered via reverse osmosis -- read the labels.  However, it is also very important to treat your water with baking soda or some other form of alkaline buffer -- baking soda happens to be the cheapest and most effective.  Most water is acidic which is very harmful to the skin along with most all other body parts.

Get Plenty of Sleep
Research has shown that skin regenerates itself between 1-3 AM (or, according to your circadian rhythm).  Lack of sleep during those hours can cause skin to look dull or puffy.

Exercise Regularly
Aerobic exercise increases circulation, which delivers nutrients necessary for a clear, glowing complexion.  It also utilizes carbohydrates and fat as a fuel source, helps eliminate toxins, and is a great stress reliever.

Avoid Excessive Alcohol and Coffee
Alcohol can weaken the immune system, deplete nutrients, and deprive us of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep.  It causes dehydration, depriving skin of moisture, and overtaxes the liver.  Alcohol consumption can lead to broken or distended capillaries, especially around the nose and cheeks. Caffeine-rich beverages like coffee promote dehydration, leaving skin flaky and dry.  Consider herbal or green tea as a substitute for coffee.

Stop Smoking
Smoking slows healing and regeneration, causes carbon monoxide to increase in blood, and induces free radical formation.  Nicotine constricts blood vessels and reduces blood flow to skin.  The benzopyrene in cigarette smoke inhibits absorption of vitamin C, which is important for collagen synthesis.
