Nicole Baird

As you will already know the foods you put into your body will affect your skin. Eating the right food can therefore change your skin completely. Combing the right foods and the right vegan skincare will therefore create the ultimate skincare regime for the healthiest glowing skin!

 

Not all fats are bad!

 

Usually when we hear of fatty foods we automatically assume they are bad and we want to avoid them at all costs. However, there are healthy fats and knowing what these are will benefit your skin and overall health. Healthy fats work by maintaining healthy cell membranes by protecting them from any damaging waste products. This means that cells are healthier and able to retain water - in turn giving you more hydrated and flexible skin.

 

Healthy fat foods - 

  • Avocados
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Fatty Fish

 

Adding these foods into your diet along with our vegan-friendly Aloe & Rose healthy hydration mask will allow them to work together to provide your skin elasticity and deep moisture.

 

Vitamin E

 

Foods rich in Vitamin E will work as an antioxidant to your skin - in other words, clean out all the bad stuff. Our body takes in toxins, so introducing Vitamin E into your skincare will help prevent skin damage and reduce inflammation. It's also great at keeping the skin youthful.

 

Vitamin E rich foods - 

  • Green leafy vegetables (spinach, broccoli)
  • Nuts (almonds, peanuts)
  • Vegetable oils

 

Using vegan skincare products containing vitamin E will further benefit the effects of eating foods rich in vitamin E. Our Coconut and Rosehip calming cream is perfect in helping calming irritated skin by providing a boost of vitamin E. 

 

Vitamin C and Collagen

 

Collagen is a protei in our bodies that ultimately give our skin and bones strength and structure. Foods high in vitamin C will increase the synthesis of collagen which in turn will help with anti-aging and other skincare benefits. This is due to its ability to repair tissues and heal. 

 

Vitamin C rich foods-

  • Citrus fruits (oranges)
  • Peppers
  • Strawberries

 

Our Orange Blossom and Aloe Vera toner and Rose and Frankincense day cream are both vegan skincare products that will also aid the reduction of signs of ageing by restoring and hydrating. Therefore, combining this with foods containing vitamin C will really help keep skin youthful and fresh.

 

Beta Carotene & Vitamin A

 

Beta Carotene is a plant pigment that helps provide vitamin A to your body. Beta carotene is a catenoid and so will help protect your skin from the sun. As we all probably know that increased su exposure can damage your skin and contribute to raging, so introducing foods that have beta carotene can help reduce this damage. Not only will it protect your skin, but it will also give your skin a healthy natural glow by adding more warm tones to your skin. 

 

Foods containing beta carotene - 

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Apricots 

 

Our Olive and Avocado cell renewal serum will also help to resolve skin problems. It delves deep into the layers of your skin and will tackle and problems at the roots. So eating foods containing beta carotene and using our renewal serum will help restore a healthy youthful glow to damaged skin.
