How your diet can affect your skin

Did you know that what you eat (and drink) can have a huge impact on your skin? You may notice that there are certain times when your skin is particularly worse than usual. This can be for many reasons but one of the most common is diet. If we eat a lot of greasy foods, or eat foods that are high in saturated fats, then you may notice that you start to have a lot more breakouts than usual. Often a simply change in your diet can help reduce this and within a couple of days you will start to see and improvement.

If you are eating a lot of takeaway food or foods that have been fried then this grease and fat can clog up your pores on your skin, which can then result in spots.

Review your current diet and see where you could make changes that may help. Swapping that chocolate bar or packet of crisps for an apple or banana is the perfect place to start. Make sure that you drink as much water as you can as this will help flush out your body and improve your overall health as well as your skin.
