Now, who doesn’t love flawless, beautiful skin? We all do, but topical treatments or makeup may not give you the results you want. No matter what skin condition you suffer from, whether it’s acne, blemishes, dermatitis or any other kind of skin issue, the only way to treat it and make your skin better is by healing your body from within.

Improving the quality of your skin involves making changes to your diet and a getting a lifestyle makeover. Most of these conditions occur due to hormonal imbalances or lack of nutrition, so the right way to fix your skin is to treat it from within. Especially when there is a shift in seasons, our skin is directly impacted, and that's when our skin needs special care. So, let’s get down to it.

1. Reduce Sources of Estrogen

Did you know that having an excess amount of estrogen in your body can cause acne? That's right, the dominance of estrogen is the primary cause of hormonal imbalance. Xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens are chemicals that act like estrogen and get attached to estrogen receptors, overburdening the body with their estrogenic effects.

Xenoestrogen can be found in commercially raised meat and dairy products, such as pork, chicken, butter, etc. Any foods containing pesticide residues can also cause estrogenic effects. One more source for xenoestrogen is tap water. When it comes to phytoestrogens, some common sources are soy products, flax seeds, and sesame seeds, and are mostly found in plant sources. Consuming foods high in phytoestrogens can result in drastic acne.



2. Add Zinc to Your Diet

Another agent that enhances the quality of your skin is zinc and a deficiency of zinc has been linked to acne by experts. Hence, it's safe to say that a healthy dosage of this nutrient is necessary to maintain healthy skin. Zinc regulates the collagen in the skin as we age and promotes skin renewal. Zinc also fights other issues that cause the skin to suffer from inflammation.
