Radiant skin, voluminous hair and strong nails: To achieve this, we cream, clean and exfoliate. But in order to get that certain inner glow, there is an important step that is often overlooked. When you think about it, it’s pretty simple: you are what you eat. Right now, when autumn and winter with its harsh conditions are approaching, we want to support our body and our skin from the inside out. The dermatologist Prof. Dr. Axt-Gadermann explains that with the right nutrition you can support your skin internally, even before you apply any products externally. Because nutrients, minerals and vitamins can be the real beauty boosters. The good news, there is one food that contains a variety of these nutrients to aid your beauty routine: almonds! From now on, consider them your beauty secret. We reveal why!
Ready for fall and winter
“True beauty comes from within” is a common saying and there is a lot of truth in it, especially when it comes to nutrition. Now that the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting more uncomfortable, you still want to feel healthy and radiant. The dermatologist Prof. Dr. Michaela Axt-Gadermann knows how a healthy diet contributes to general well-being: “What we eat can definitely influence our body and our appearance, not only in terms of weight, but also the appearance of skin, hair and nails. So just as foods nourish our bodies, they also nourish our skin from within. ” Almonds are the best example, as they contain a variety of nutrients that support the skin and body on cloudy days.
Here are three reasons almonds are the perfect addition to your winter beauty routine.
1. Almonds support a holistic healthy lifestyle
Have you ever thought about how your health and beauty are related and what role diet plays in this? Dr. Axt-Gadermann explains: “It is important not to look at each area individually, but to see its health and beauty holistically, because one influences the other and nutrition plays a decisive role for both. That health begins with food is Well known, but it is important to understand that beauty care is not limited to the bathroom, but begins in the kitchen, because the food you eat can not only be good for your health, but also affect your hair, skin and nails. When you are healthy on the inside, it is reflected on the outside. ” Fortunately, almonds support a holistic lifestyle with all of the minerals, vitamins, healthy unsaturated fats, and potentially beautifying nutrients they contain. So supplement your diet with a daily handful (30g) of nutritious almonds.
2. Nutrients from almonds support your beauty from within
During the long autumn and winter months, our skin is often exposed to drier and warm heating air because we spend much more time inside. This can be stressful for the skin, but with a healthy and nutritious diet, you can support your skin with essential nutrients from the inside. Almonds are rich in copper, which plays an important role in hair and skin pigmentation. Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails. The B vitamins niacin and riboflavin also support your skin. In addition, a handful of almonds (30 g) provide you with 60% of your daily need for antioxidant vitamin E, which protects the cells from oxidative stress from environmental pollution, UV rays from the sun and other environmental factors. “You know many of these ingredients from your bathroom shelf, be it your face cream with vitamin E or zinc or your face serum with niacin or copper,” says Dr. Ax-Gadermann. “But I would like people to understand that they can eat their beauty products too. It is therefore important to eat foods with a high density of micronutrients on a regular basis.” Almonds contain all of these beauty-promoting nutrients.
3. Almonds can help improve wrinkles and skin tone
When it comes to antiaging, many people focus on expensive eye creams and specialized wrinkle reduction treatments. While this is a possibility, there is also a more natural approach you can take: snacking on almonds. Almonds can benefit aging skin, researchers found in a recently published study from the University of California, Davis that looked at the effects of almond consumption on wrinkles. After eating almonds for 6 months, the severity of the facial wrinkles of the participants (postmenopausal women with Fitzpatrick skin types 1 and 2) decreased by 16% and the overall pigment intensity of the face (uneven skin tone) decreased by compared to a nut-free snack of the same calorie content 20% off. This study provides evidence that eating right can support our beauty from within.
And even if almonds will not completely replace our outer beauty rituals, they are the perfect addition to support your holistically healthy lifestyle and your beauty “naturally” from the inside out!
