Clear, healthy looking skin is a must in the modeling industry but how do models keep their skin looking perfect? Some models are born with perfect skin and some have to work at it. What you eat plays a huge part on how your skin will look, this is more important than the products that you use on a daily basis. Here are a few things every model should consume to keep their skin looking flawless all year round.
Water. Yes it is true, water hydrates you and is great for the skin. Drink at least 8 glasses a day. Drinking water helps move toxins out of the body and moves nutrients in to the body. If models don’t enjoy drinking water green tea is the next best thing.
Low fat dairy products. Healthy skin needs Vitamin A and one of the best places to get Vitamin A is dairy products. Low fat yogurt is the best thing for models to eat, it contains Vitamin A and also contains acidophilus which is great for intestinal health.
Fruit. Blackberries, strawberries, plums and blueberries are great for a model’s skin. These fruits are high in antioxidants.
Whole grain. If models eat breads, cereals, pastas or rice try and make sure that it is whole grain. Whole grain products contain selenium which help produce skin cells.
Lean meats. It is recommended that models stick to poultry and fish when eating meats. These are high in protein and low in fat. They will contain the necessary fatty acids and vitamins that every model needs.
Models should consume water, green tea, low fat dairy products, fruit, whole grain and lean meats for perfect skin but there are a few things that they should avoid.
White flour items. White bread, cakes, pastas, sugar and white rice can have an affect on insulin levels and can cause breakouts.
Chocolate, soda, greasy foods. These items are high in fat and have a lot of calories. Models should stay away from these items or only eat in moderation.
Eating the right foods isn’t the only thing that you can do to get clear and healthy skin. Wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is necessary to prevent skin damage. Don’t smoke! This is really bad for your skin in so many ways. Smoking will change the color of your skin, cause wrinkles and depletes your skin of oxygen and nutrients. Wash your skin daily and never go to sleep with your make up on. Use a moisturizer 2 times a day, the morning lotion should have sunscreen. Whenever doing anything to your face like washing it or applying make up be gentle, pulling on your skin stretches it.
