Nutrition and Black Skin Care – A Winning Combination

Nutrition and Black Skin Care – A Winning Combination

Today our guest blogger is Juliette Samuel.

Both topically and internally, the focus on nutrition and Black Skin Care is becoming a clear pathway to your skin’s wellness. With your skin being the largest organ of your body, it is extremely important that you are conscious of what you put on it as well as what you eat to feed it from within.

Whether it’s through taking a supplement, the encouragement of good eating habits or the careful selection of natural ingredients, beautiful black skin is your goal.

It seems as though another goal of yours is to, not just live longer, but have a much more healthier lifestyle and have soft, radiant, youthful looking skin at the same time.

Antioxidants – While known to reduce inflammation and even reverse some of the damage caused by heart disease, they can be found in simple foods, like avocado’s and green teas. Yet not everyone is open to giving them a try.

What people are willing to try are those foods that are full of sugars, carbohydrates and bad fats. These “bad fats” elevate your cholesterol levels, promote inflammation and cause heart disease. Inflammation may be the main culprit in cancer, aging and poor skin.

The intake of sugar and simple carbohydrates may also affect your skin’s appearance and cause you to feel dehydrated.

Antioxidant’s and Your Beautiful Black Skin

Let’s get back to antioxidants. Antioxidants are vitamins or nutrients that protect your body from stress by fighting off free radicals. Free radicals are reactive molecules that cause damage to your body, especially your skin.

The best-known antioxidant is Vitamin E, which helps your body fight heart disease and inflammation. It’s thought to give your skin added protection against sun damage and aging. However, it takes two-to-three weeks for enough vitamin E to build up in your skin before its protection actually goes into effect.

Vitamin C is another antioxidant and contributes to the collagen build up and wound healing in your skin.

Beans, Berries, Green Foods and Your Beautiful Black Skin

Blueberries are the poster child for antioxidants but most berries are a great source. It’s been found that beans are also rich in antioxidants as well as the spices: cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon in small amounts.

But, what about your green foods? No eating regimen is complete without eating green foods like kale, spinach and broccoli. The green foods give you chlorophyll and keep your blood clean.

Beautiful Black skin is a direct result of eating the best foods, feeding your skin from within and using Black Skin care products for maintaining the health of your skin topically.

    To me, regarding the green things that are healthy for the skin and our internal system is one that have it all on one plant, aloe vera. It is good for the scalp and hair. It can also be taken as a concoction where you take it to a drink. You can put on some flavors or add some fruits.

    Great advice! If everyone ate more fruits, veggies and berries we’d have a lot lower health care costs in America

    Whatever our skin color vegetables and fruits benefits us in various ways. I’m not a vegetarian but I’ve noticed that whenever I have more veggies I feel more lighter. Juliette, what you’ve shared was a pleasure to read.

      Thanks Adam,

      Nutrition plays a big part in the beauty of your skin but so does the environment.

      You seem to have the perfect solution with your listings. Nice homes!

    When I started drinking green smoothies everyday I noticed a change for the better in my skin and my energy levels shot through the roof! Eating greens is definitely the best way to feed your skin from within.

      Hi Tai,

      I can see you now sipping on a green drink on the beach in St Lucia.

      Green drinks, walks on the beach and beautiful water … you can’t help but feel great and have beautiful skin.

      Thanks for stopping by

    Hi Juliette,

    Thanks for reminding me to eat healthier foods. 🙂 Drinking enough glasses of water can help us take care of our skin, right? By the way, what kinds of foods are rich in Vitamin E?:)

    • Juliette says:

      Hi Calli,

      Avocado’s, Spinach and almonds are great Vitamin E foods. Not only does Avocado make a great guacamole and add life to a spinach salad, it’s a good oil for your skin, especially dry and/or mature skin.

      And yes, water is great for your skin. Six to eight glasses a day is a great beginning.

    Hi Latoya

    V8 Splash is good for a quick on the go drink. If it’s working for you, great! Watch the sodium levels and be sure to get enough water in your system to keep things regular.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Hi Juliette,

    Greens really do the body good. When I started drinking green smoothies, I noticed a change in the appearance of my skin. Things started looking better.

    Great tips!

      Hi Evelyn,

      I love green foods, raw, steamed or in liquid form. They work wonders for your skin, hair and nails. Not to mention the pep you get in your step, just from having healthy eating habits.

    Some excellent tips for beautiful skin. I have been drinking a lot of V8 Splash (high in antioxidants but are they the right ones?) and I see and feel a difference in my whole body chemistry. Thanks for the post.
