Many of us are at an age where we’ve accepted and actually been comfortable with the type of skin we have.
Dry here, oily there, we all know our trouble spots by now and our makeup bag is equipped accordingly.
I think some of us can give a Marine a few pointers on preparedness.
Lately though, it might seem as if your instincts have gone crazy.
You go through periods of oily skin and then periods of dry skin and back again.
Even the most impressive make up bag can’t handle these types of changes.
And natural remedies for oily skin aren't always enough.
As we age we may experience skin changes, such as wrinkles, age spots, and itchy dry skin at times.
Our hormones affect skin thickness, wrinkle formation, and skin moisture.
Changes in diet or exercise and in most instances environment will cause your skin to lose its elasticity. It has a very similar affect to your hair.
The best way to remedy these fluctuations in skin condition is by changing your diet.
Foods with a healthy dose of mono-saturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids can do wonders for your skin.
- Olive oil, avocado, fish and walnuts are made with the good-for-you fats that help strengthen and protect your skin. They help keep your skin lubricated and moist.
- For sensitive skin, you can add leafy greens, spinach, carrots, and sweet potato to your diet. These foods are rich in Vitamin A and help prevent overproduction of skin cells and keep your pores nice and clean.
- To prevent wrinkles and sagging, there is nothing like antioxidants like blueberries, pomegranates, acai berry, and raspberries. Foods rich with Vitamin C, like sweet potatoes, broccoli, promote collagen growth a protein that smooth’s out wrinkles.

In addition to making these small diet changes, try to do at least 30 minutes of exercise a day and take great care of your skin with a daily skin care routine.
