We all know that crash diets are dangerous to health. But even healthier dining options may be not good enough for you. This diet, which make the person over, stripping the skin of necessary substances and moisture. These diets can be attributed to a diet very low in fat.

Our body needs lipids (fats) for each of its functions. If the body is insufficient lipids, meaning that the cell can not perform its job. When you follow a diet cuts the calories, then you receive less "good" cholesterol and other fats. And it can affect your skin's ability to retain moisture.

Diets that exclude certain food groups

Damage cause skin diet in which there are a group of products. For example, strict vegetarian or vegan.

Animal proteins are rich in nutrients needed by the skin. For example, such as omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 prevents inflammation in the skin and inflammatory processes play a major role in the aging process. Omega-3 in fatty fish a lot, and if you do not have in the diet of this group of products, you should look for an adequate replacement, otherwise the skin will not be easy to resist external influence and destruction.

Decision.   Complement your diet flaxseed is a vegetarian source of omega-3. Useful as buy cosmetics with a content of olive oil or sunflower oil. If suddenly, for whatever reason, you are limiting the amount of fruits and vegetables, the skin loses antioxidants, and these substances should be present in the means of care and make-up.

The Mediterranean diet

This is one of the most popular diets. And for good reason. It can be attributed to the health not only in relation to the internal organs, but also in relation to the state of the skin. The basis of the diet are fish, greens, olive oil, fruit. Such a diet may protect against melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. And this is proved by the Italian research. Having a large number of fish diet (and, hence, omega-3 fatty acids) helps maintain elasticity and strength of the cell membranes of the skin.

There is another advantage of the Mediterranean diet. It is high in antioxidants, they are contained in tomatoes, olive oil, red wine. Antioxidants help block the chemical reactions of the sun's damaging rays.

These are the power supply system as the Atkins diet or Sauf Beach. They are cutting out diet white bread, pasta, white sugar. For such manipulation of the skin useful. Because the lack of carbohydrates leads to a reduction of the stress hormone cortisol and this minimizes irritation and acne.

True, protein diets have drawbacks. Too much meat (with a lot of animal fats) increases the production of free radicals that interfere with normal cell metabolism.

Decision.   It should move to a more meatless options for meat (fish, white meat poultry). Antioxidants should be present in food, in cosmetics, then free radicals will put a barrier. And should not forget the skin well hydrated: drink plenty of water and do not forget about moisturizing cream 2 times a day.

Nutritionists are not always enthusiastic about the raw food diet and Estheticians in contrast, believe that moderate raw food helps to keep the skin young and vibrant. Raw foodists eat a lot of nuts, beans, avocados, extra virgin olive oil. These products are among the best to save young persons. Nuts and oil keep the skin cell membranes strong.

The disadvantage is that animal protein raw foodists get very little, or not at all prepared. But this is a building material for collagen.

Decision.   Change the situation to help collagen injections, but there are creams that help to strengthen its own production of collagen and elastin. Radiance of the skin of raw foodists do not borrow, but have to take care of elasticity in addition: do massages, masks, compresses.
