You are right; our diet can have a big impact on our skin. Sugar, refined carbohydrates and processed fats will definitely have an effect, resulting in oilier skin that’s more prone to flare-ups and breakouts.
That being said, everything in moderation! Restricting your diet too much can result in other problems so the key word here is balance.
I would focus on making sure your diet includes plenty of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables as well as healthy fats such as oily fish, avocados and olive oil. These can help to keep your skin hydrated with nutrients such as vitamin C supports your collagen product.
You should also consider how much fluids you’re drinking. It’s not something that we often think about but staying hydrated is pivotal for healthy skin. It’s important to remember that not every drink will hydrate you the same way – caffeinated beverages like tea or coffee, fizzy drinks and carbonated water should be avoided here.
