MY TIPS

I – EATING for BEAUTY: CELLULITE

Wouldn’t you like to reduce the appearance of your cellulite?

Cellulite is a fat located beneath the skin that can lead to a dimpling appearance in low circulation areas such as the hips, thighs, and buttocks.

Physiologically, normal fat and cellulite are different things. The fat under the skin is subcutaneous adipose tissue that does not normally cause any bumps to emerge from the surface of the skin. Cellulite hypodermal is fat within the skin.

The fat beneath your skin can appear lumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker. And that is why you can have it whether you are heavy or thin.

The Formation of Cellulite
Did you know that cellulites can be the result of a more sedentary lifestyle? It was not a known condition until the mid-twentieth century. What caused the rise of cellulite? Sedentary occupations, an increase in sugar consumption, smoking, drinking, consumption of hydrogenated fats, the use of hormonal contraception, and pollution from plastics.

There are many risk factors in the development of cellulite, including:

  • age
  • estrogen
  • hormone changes
  • family history
  • tissue inflammation
  • increased fatty tissue caused by weight gain
  • loss of collagen
  • poor circulation, a common issue in the legs
  • poor lymphatic drainage
  • thinning epidermis in the outer layer of the skin
  • poor diet
  • slow metabolism
  • lack of physical activity
  • dehydration
  • thickness and color of your skin, less visible on darker skin

An unhealthy diet accelerates the degeneration of body cells and aggravates the appearance of cellulite. When we eat processed food, oxidation takes place with certain toxins released that reduces skin elasticity and slows down circulation. Cellulite is a reaction to the improper removal of detoxifying waste in the skin.

HOW CAN YOU PREVENT CELLULITE WITH NUTRITION?

Unfortunately, you cannot use a specific diet to keep cellulite away. But there are ways you can fight the toxins in your body. Ironically, losing weight can make things worse. When you drop weight, your skin can become saggy making cellulite more pronounced. In addition, diets can create a yo-yo effect that increases fatty tissues.

After turning 25, women who do not exercise may lose an average of five pounds of muscle per decade and gain 15 pounds of fat. Collagen decreases by roughly one percent per year. Women naturally have a higher body fat percentage than men. So, it is no surprise that cellulite becomes more prominent as women age.

What can you do to minimize the effects of cellulite? Start by incorporating a good number of proteins in your diet. The DRI (Dietary Reference Intake) is 0.36 grams of protein per pound (0.8 grams per kg) of body weight. This may be enough to prevent deficiency. The amount you need depends on many factors, including your activity level, age, muscle mass, physique goals, and overall health.

A big factor on cellulite is drinking plenty of water. Staying hydrated ensures your lymphatic system has the fluids it needs to flush toxins into your kidneys and liver and expelled them from your body. You can decrease toxins in your body by avoiding ultra-processed food, refined sugar, and bad fat.

Use salt as little as possible because water retention can occur. Fat accumulation hinders venous circulation and promote small edemas. Try seasoning your dishes with herbs to add flavor.
Certain herbs like turmeric, garlic, citrus, and ginger can boost the lymphatic system. Leafy greens, nuts, and seeds are also great choices.

Here are detoxifying foods that fight water retention:

  • Onions help to drain and detoxify stimulating the digestive system, and lowering blood sugar levels
  • Leeks are rich in vitamins A, C and E and low in calories flushing out toxins that have accumulated in your body
  • Green tea is a beverage that can help prevent water retention and fat from settling in your body
  • Celery is a vegetable that activates your metabolism eliminating fat and reducing cellulite
  • Cabbage may prevent water retention
  • Papaya can fight collagen found in cellulite and can be an excellent ally in slimming down
  • Thanks to its diuretic and toning properties, bell pepper helps eliminate sugars and fats that distort your curves
  • Pineapple is an excellent draining fruit

II – EATING for BEAUTY: BEAUTIFUL SKIN FOODS

To have a beautiful skin, you need to take care of your skin. What is food that promote beautiful skin?

Food is mainly responsible for inflammation meaning poor nutrition can cause redness, pimples, itching, dryness, and sometimes scaling. In short, a skin that is not clear. The superficial cells of the skin are constantly renewing themselves.

WHAT ARE THE BEST FOODS FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN?

To have a clear skin, you should eat food products rich in vitamins E, A, C, and Omega 3 and Omega 6. Let us take a closer look at each substance:

  • Vitamin E is found in avocados, dry fruits, seeds, almonds, hazelnuts and in vegetable oils. An anti-inflammatory, vitamin E accelerates healing, protects against UV rays, and contains antioxidants that stimulates the production of collagen and increases the elasticity of your skin. You can maintain skin hydration, including when used in a cream.
  • Vitamin A is found in all fruits and vegetables as well as eggs, butter and offal producing melanin. Vitamin A is converted into beta carotene, which protects the cells from UV rays.
  • Most citrus fruits contain vitamin C, a key substance that produces collagen, an antioxidant, and anti-aging agent. Vitamin C plays an important role in pigment disorders, harmonizing your complexion and reducing hyperpigmentation.
  • Omega 3 is present in fatty fish like mackerel, sardines, and salmon, vegetable oils, and oil seeds. Choose extra-virgin oils in which the residual oil is removed and only the substance kept. Omega 3 help drain and support the elimination of water. Their cardiovascular action decreases hypertension and allows the kidneys to better filter reducing the risks of kidney cancers.
  • All meat fats contain Omega 6 with an impact on elasticity and the immune system. However, be aware that too much meat consumption can lead to inflammation.

A diet filled with raw vegetables and fruits are a key component for healthy skin. That is because fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins, free of cholesterol and salt. Almost no toxins are deposited in your intestine and in your skin. Your complexion can be more luminous.

SKIN TYPES

There are nutritional solutions depending on your type of skin.

The first nutritional tip for glowing skin is to drink water and reduce alcohol consumption. Radiant skin needs plenty of water, so keep a bottle with you all day. Be aware that pastries, cold cuts, sandwiches, and pizzas can deregulate the sebaceous glands and make your skin oily.

Instead, choose raw vegetables, and add good quality seasoning oil, such as wheat germ, olive, and sunflower oil. Dried fruits like hazelnuts and almonds can provide your skin with numerous trace elements. And, drinking tea provides you with polyphenols that are good for a radiant complexion.

Dry skin lacks two basic elements: water and good fats. That makes drinking the recommended daily intake of 11.5 cups of fluids a day for women, 15.5 cups for men, an important part of your lifestyle. Also, eat vegetables rich in water or good fats, such as cucumber for water and avocado for fats.

There are many water-rich foods available at your supermarket: watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe, peaches, oranges, cucumber, lettuce, broths, zucchini, celery, plain yogurt, tomatoes, bell peppers, cauliflower, cabbage, grapefruit, coconut water, and cottage cheese. You can cook dishes once or twice a week with fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel, or herring. Have healthy snacks like almonds and Brazilian or macadamia nuts.

Skin can lack suppleness, meaning dehydration with a lack of essential fatty acids and antioxidants. The solution lies in foods that provide good fats, such as avocado, fatty fishes, first cold-pressed olive, rapeseed or wheat germ oils, and eggs. Mineral-rich water can help your body drain waste products and counteract the acidifying effects of a diet with too many sugars and poor-quality fats.

Acne affects not just teenagers. A proper diet can slow down the inflammation of the skin. To help heal your skin, eliminate, or reduce the consumption of fat, sugar, and milk, food that are responsible for unhealthy skin.

Fatty food requires a lot of intestinal work. The intestine is the filter of food dealing with excess fat from the accumulation of wastes. This forces the intestine to overflow, affecting the filtering of toxins. The quality of your skin is reflected by your saturated and tired intestine. Gray, dull, or yellow skin indicates excess fat in the intestine.

Industrial sugars like candies and milk chocolate are deadly “assassins” to your skin. An increase in blood sugar can result in your pancreas making insulin and transferring to the cells. Once the proteins of the cells are affected by the sugar, glycation forms in your body. The worst glycation is a combination of protein and sugar, such as “ribs” (pork ribs brushed with sugar). Glycation has the effect of stiffening the inside of cells, particularly the dermis.

Decreasing collagen and elastin poisons the dermis with particles that it cannot eliminate. The increase in insulin is the result of the sugar in the cells secreting the IGF hormone (insulin growth factor), which stimulates the sebaceous glands and produces sebum.

Whole milk is pro-inflammatory and causes inflammation of the skin and of the joints. By consuming milk regularly, you can increase the risk of osteoarthritis. Inflammation is mechanically responsible for the increase in pain. Not all milk products cause inflammation. Fermented dairy products like yogurt and cheese have less impact on the quality of your skin because fermentation reduces the amount of sugar. Skimmed milk contains whey, a protein absents in whole milk. Whey can increase the level of insulin, and consequently, the secretion of sebum by the sebaceous glands.

The main cause of oily skin is the secretion of sebum containing zinc found in foods such as oysters or steaks. Avoid sebum by limiting sugars. The sebaceous gland uses sugar to produce sebum. Therefore, the more you eat, the more the gland produces fat that can make your face glow like a beacon in the night.

Genetics affect 60% of the way we age. The drier your skin, the more it wrinkles. As used for dry skin, various seasoning oils, fatty fish, and eggs can help keep your skin hydrated. Fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants and free radicals, reducing some the effects of aging. Among the potent produce, add vegetables such as lamb’s lettuce, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, chard, peppers, and peas, and fruits like strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries.

PROTECTING YOUR SKIN

To repair or prevent the effects of the sun

Studies have shown that foods rich in lycopene and essential fatty acids reduce the risk of sunburn. Your diet can be a complement to your sunscreen. For example, tomatoes rich in lycopene and olive oil are absorbed by your body and helps to produce collagen and elastin.

Food containing carotene like carrots, apricots, mangoes, and fatty fishes are good fats for your body. Green tea is rich in polyphenols, providing a positive effect on your skin’s resistance to sun exposure.

To protect sensitive and reactive skin

Skin can redden at the slightest chill or become irritated, needing nutrients to cope with aggression. With a balanced intestinal flora, your skin can be better nourished with good fibers and fermented foods like cheeses, yogurt, wine, kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha, sourdough bread, and soy sauce. By eating oily fish like salmon and dressing your salads with walnut, rapeseed, or grape seed oil, you can increase the elasticity and resistance of your skin.

Colored vegetables are rich in antioxidants, providing a protective effect on your skin. Eating five to seven fruits and vegetables can benefit your skin by rebuilding its elasticity and giving you some resistance to cold or heat.
