I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying ‘you are what you eat’ well what you put into our body really will have a lot to do with how healthy, glowing, smooth and vibrant your skin will be.  All said and done the better quality of food that you eat the better your skin will look so if your eating fast food burgers and pizza or snacking on bagged chips and cookies or downing gallons of soft drinks per year your skin is not likely to be looking to good these days.

Many people out there are getting by each day with only drinking one or two cups of water per day and try to make up for it by drinking lots of soft drinks because they figure that there has to be some water in that canned soda pop. But what they are actually doing to their skin is downright hazardous and can have lasting effects on not only your skin health but overall health in general.

A well balanced diet will have a great impact on that sheen your after so you should include a good amount of low fat dairy products  which contains vitamin A which is a very important component of healthy skin and nutritionist advice that one should have a diet rich in vitamin A if one suffers from Diabetes.  Low fat dairy products also have lots of the good “live” bacteria which is good for your intestinal health and is also wonderful for your skin as whatever can keep your digestion system working normally meaning live bacteria and enzymes is surely going to reflect in the good quality of your skin.

It has been shown in various studies that berries specifically strawberries, blueberries and blackberries are also wonderful for your skin as they contain high amounts of antioxidants and these fruits just recently were said to have the highest amount of total antioxidants of any foods.

Of course keeping your skin hydrated will also have an impact on the shine in our skin and many nutritionist recommend that a person should drink 3 to 4 liters of water per day not only for healthy skin but to keep your inner organs well hydrated and properly functioning.
lastly 30 minutes of exercise per day will keep your pores functioning properly and keeping your circulation going properly.

Good skin can go a long way and if properly taken care of you should have years and years of that radiant shimmy glowing skin that your friends will envy.
