Premature ageing and dry lips are common results.

Don’t Eat Less, Eat Right!
There’s a direct link between a healthy diet and plumper skin as we have already said it. Fruits and veggies alone can’t help you out. So why not cut off some fat and get a clear complexion all at once by eating low fat dairy, lentils, nuts and seeds for your daily dose of Vitamin B12 and selenium that protect your skin from sun damage and boost collagen production along with fruits and veggies. Also, good fat .
There is crucial role dietary fats play in skin health and you can incorporate them into your diet. We are not telling you to avoid fat. Instead, choose the right fats — they are slimming and good for you.The most important of fats are omega-3. High levels of omega-3 have been shown to plump up the look of the skin as well as the quality, by reducing inflammation as well as supplying the building blocks for healthy skin cells.
Avoid as much as sugars, whether they’re visible, hidden as starch, or artificial. And if you choose to eat bread, eat whole grain ones. Eat good quality protein from grass-fed animals, organic eggs, fish and plant-based proteins. Include anyone of walnuts, linseeds, pumpkin, chia and hemp in your every day breakfast and never skip your morning meal. There is another nutrient that should be included in the diet to help fat metabolism in the skin, and this is biotin. It is found in good amounts in fish, soy products, egg yolk, almonds, Swiss Chard, tomato, avocado and sweet potatoes. Also take a multivitamin/mineral supplement everyday, even if you eat a healthy diet.
Follow these religiously and no one can take that glow from you! And, don’t forget to cleanse, moisturise and tone your skin everyday..!
