What to pack for better looks
Who doesn’t want beautiful, smooth skin? As much as we try to solve the issue at hand, so far we can only control the symptoms. So what is the secret for a healthy skin? Nurture your skin from the inside out and by following our tips you’ll have glowing skin in no-time!
Drink plenty of water!
There is no surprise that drinking enough water is essential for healthy skin. A lack of water means your body struggles to drain the waste inside your body leaving your skin weaker and less elastic, meaning you are more prone to the formation of small visible wrinkles. After a night of one too many G&T’s you really need to keep hydrated by replacing those essential fluids. This keeps your skin hydrated which means water is not only good for the skin but perfect for minimising the next morning hangover.
Protect your skin with omega-3
According to scientists omega-3 is essential in keeping your skin silky smooth. Omega-3 helps ensure healthy skin whilst slowing down the effects of aging, however you can only get omega-3 through healthy nutrition as your your body is unable to create these acids naturally. You can find omega-3 in walnuts, linseed, hemp seeds and fish like salmon or mackerel.
