However, did you know that nutrition can also impact your skin? Many patients who are eating healthy are doing so to reduce the risk of medical issues or to lose weight without realizing how it impacts their skin’s appearance and health as well. 

How does nutrition affect the skin? 

Nutritional changes can be made to help address skin issues such as skin thinning, fine lines and wrinkles, and dryness. Healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, and consumption of healthy fats are often associated with patients who have less wrinkles and better hydrated skin. This also goes for those who drink plenty of water each day to maintain skin’s moisture. 

What can I eat for healthy skin? 

Patients who understand the link between diet and skin health often have questions for Dr. Kimberly Carpin of Webster, TX, including questions about what they should eat to improve their skin’s appearance and health. In general, what’s good for the body is good for the skin. She encourages patients to consider whole food and Mediterranean-styled diets that are high in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and lean meats. These products are also known to be higher in nutrients that are good for the skin regardless of age. 

What else can I do to improve my skin’s texture and tone? 

In addition to eating right, patients can also maintain clearer skin by washing the face twice a day, utilizing sunblock every day, and moisturizing the skin with the proper product. Patients who are unsure about the products to use for their skin will want to consult with our team and learn more about what is appropriate for their unique skincare needs.
