Healthy skin with diet and vitamins
Vitamin is an essential ingredient of a good skin. If you are really concerned about your skin then you should take adequate vitamins. So, started taking diet full of vitamins and feel the difference it makes !!!
Vitamin A: Vitamin A is known to be a remarkable anti-wrinkling agent. It helps in making the skin smooth and silky and also protects your skin from various types of skin infection and diseases. You can get vitamin A from foods like vegetables - in particular, in carrots, tomato, cabbage, fruits, vegetable oil, cord liver oil, egg, liver, butter and milk.

i'm wondering whats a good diet plan to maintain healthy clear skin + maybe add a little glow to it :)
Answer: Water for hydration.
Eating citrus fruits like oranges and lime can help too. Eating strawberries daily is good for your skin too. It has vitamin C.
Almonds and walnuts too. It has vitamin E.
Vegetables such as spinach and tomatoes are good too. Spinaches have zinc which is a good mineral for our skin.
However dieting alone isn't enough. Make sure you do your daily skin regime too. You need to take care of your skin outside as well as inside. Do exercises daily as well. Working out can help too. When you work out , you sweat and remove toxins from your body which are harmful for your skin.
Also avoid eating oily food too much. A little won't do anything bad but if you eat a lot it won't be good for your skin. I wouldn't say that non-veg or animal products will be bad (milk will be good) but if you are vegan then I guess you can avoid those stuffs.
And lastly, a good amount of beauty sleep will help too. So make sure you sleep well.
My skin tends to get dull and pigmented in the summers....maybe due to excess oil in my diet...i have stopped oil but what are other healthy methods?
Answer: I don't think that stopping taking oil is going to improve your skin, it is a vital ingredient to soft, supple skin if you include good oils such as fish and flax seed oils in your diet. Take an omega 3 vitimin daily to not only look after your insides but also your skin, hair and nails. This shouldn't affect your skin enough to make it more oily as such, it will actually help balance your PH levels nicely.
Nuts are also a wonderful way to look after your skin, such as almonds and pumpkin seeds. Sprinkle daily on your cereals or salads or they are a great healthy afternoon snack. Avocados are great for also. Drinking herbal teas insead of coffee for example is also a good way to help keep your skin looking great.
I really believe that to look good you need to take care of what you put INTO your body first. For example I really notice the improvement in my skin when I adopt these simple practices in my daily routine:
-A good night sleep, every night! (its amazing how good my skin looks after a early night compared to a night out on the town!)
-Drink water when thirsty, green tea for a pick up
-5 + FRUIT and 5 + VEGE per day
-ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS
-Apply a nightly face oil, such as rosehip or vitimin E or Almond oil
-use a natural facial scrub to vitalise skin and get rid of dead skin cells, this will help your face breath..
-TIP: Do you have a LUSH natural beauty product store near you? Check out their face tonics and refreshing face sprays that are great to have in your handbag or office to revitalize your skin whenever you get that mid afternoon dullness...Or try and go swimming in the sea as often as possible, salt air and water really great at putting the freshness back into skin.
Hope this helps a little, ciao.
