Nutrition plays a key role in skin health,
We’ve heard of problem skin being treated with everything from salicylic acid to antibiotics. But yogurt and blueberries, flaxseed and salmon?
Meagen McCusker, associate professor of dermatology at the University of Connecticut Health Center says It’s really true that you are what you eat, adding that the condition of your skin often tells a story about your overall health and well-being.
The first food that is recommended to avoid to save your skin are sugars.Not only can sugar cause inflammations in the body, but it also adversely affects cell membranes and by extension can break down collagen. Collagen is a type of protein that helps make the skin elastic.
In addition of changing your diet by eliminating sugars and other foods, you probably know that probiotics are good for digestive health. But, did you know there are special probiotics that live on and in your skin? These beneficial bacteria help the skin maintain its barrier function and keep dermal cells healthy.
Many common facial cleansers and skincare products can disrupt the balance of these friendly bacteria. Dr. Ohhira’s skin care line provides probiotic and prebiotic nutrients to help rejuvenate and support the balanced micro-ecology needed for healthy skin. The botanical extracts provide powerful antioxidant effects, too.
