Beat the summer - sleep well, eat well for glowing skin
"Healthy skin reflects overall health and so it is important to take care of it rather than relying on expensive cosmetics," says clinical nutritionist Ishi Khosla.
"A clear and glowing skin reflects overall health. This requires a well-balanced fibre-rich diet, plenty of fluids, regular exercise, no smoking and avoiding excessive exposure to sun," Khosla told IANS.
Khosla, who is the director at Whole Foods India and founder-president of Celiac Society for Delhi, also suggests specific nutrients for good skin.
"The important nutrients for skin include proteins, essential fats, vitamin A, E, C, B complex, selenium, zinc and copper," she said.
"A regular, sound sleep pattern is also a must," says homeopath Kalyan Banerjee.
"Including natural foods in diet, such as fruits, veggies and a lot of water in one's daily diet, along with uninterrupted sleep automatically brings a glow on the face," Banerjee told IANS.
