Nutrients for healthy skin

Winter can leave your skin feeling dry, looking dull, and shouting out for a bit of TLC. Try as many moisturisers and expensive treatments as you like, but if your body isn’t getting enough of these key nutrients, your skin won’t be able to really glow.

Firstly, skin needs plenty of “good” fats to keep hydrated and banish dryness. Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) help keep inflammation under control, which can be a huge help if you struggle with acne, eczema or sensitive skin. The best source is oily fish, such as salmon and tuna, but you can also get omega-3 from walnuts, chia seeds, and flaxseeds.

Nuts, as well as containing beneficial fats, provide you with heaps of other wonderful nutrients. Almonds are a fantastic source of vitamin E, calcium, and B vitamins, while walnuts give you a dose of vitamin C, vitamin E, B vitamins, potassium and iron.

Vitamins A, C and E are beautiful antioxidants, which will prevent your skin from ageing prematurely, keeping it looking bright and clear. Boost your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables to reap the benefits of these antioxidant vitamins.

Last but not least, drink plenty of water! Dehydration not only exacerbates dry skin, but also decreases your body’s ability to use all the beneficial nutrients you’ve just consumed. Water is essential for transporting nutrients around your body and delivering them to the cells that need them.
