Try These 3 Foods for Fab Winter Skin!

Sydne Style shows what to eat for winter skin with salmon for skincareDuring the winter, skin can get dull and dry. Products majorly help but so does changing your diet. When I was at my dermatologist last week, I asked her about foods I could start adding to my diet to improve my skin. Dr. Jessica Wu wrote a book calledย Feed Your Face, which recommends a diet plan for better skin. Here are the three foods she suggested for having better skin this winter:

Oily Fish

Fish that that are high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids help combat dry, flaky skin . “It helps replenish the natural oil in your skin that acts like a bubble wrap to seal the moisture,” Dr. Wu says. Oily fish includes mackerel, salmon, lake trout, sardines and albacore tuna. Not a fan of fish? Dr. Wu recommends taking a fish oil supplement. Vegan? Try an algae oil supplement.

Nuts are also high in Omega 3. Dr. Wu says walnuts are her current favorite. She includes them in her baking and sprinkles them on her oatmeal and smoothies. The nuts are a great way to replenish your skin’s natural oils.

Sydne Style recommends sundried tomatoes to eat for winter skincare tipsTomatoes

Tomatoes are high in an antioxidant called lycopene. “It’s a great general antioxidant,” Dr. Wu says. “But it specifically protects against sun and sunburns.” Ok, I know what you’re thinking, why would we be worried about sunburn during the winter? But Dr. Wu says she often sees sun damage in her clients during the winter months. People forget to apply sunscreen (which is super important all year-round!). When you go on any winter trips in the mountains, you’re more susceptible to sunburns. “For every 1,000 feet of altitude, you get 8-10% more UV rays,” warns Dr. Wu.

Unlike most foods, when it comes to tomatoes, the more processed the better! “The more processed the tomato is, the more available it is for your body to absorb it,” says Dr. Wu. She recommends adding sundried tomatoes and tomato paste to your dishes. I already did this in a few of my dishes this week and can’t wait to share the recipes.

    In winter, the lack of vitamins and cold negatively affects health. In the cold season, as a rule, appetite increases and physical activity decreases. I recovered a lot last winter, later I was depressed about this, drug use. The doctors of the clinic helped me – Don’t repeat my mistakes, eat right!

    As for me, these sources are really useful but I wanted to learn more about gummies and oils based on cannabis but I haven’t a clue where I will find something useful and convenient for me. Thank you in advance and I will be really grateful.
