EATING WELL: A MATTER OF BALANCE

“Everything is in moderation”: this old maxim, often attributed to Cleobulus of Lindos in ancient Greece, has survived for more than 2500 years and is still quoted today.

But if we consider that there is some wisdom in this sentence, it is mainly because the underlying principle proves to be true, especially in the field of nutrition.

Far from a bowl of food too rich in fat, salt or sugar, too poor in fiber, vitamins or trace elements, the meal of a skin that remains healthy as it ages must above all be balanced.

Discover some tips and “detox” recipes to restore the dietary balance necessary to give your skin back its radiance.

VARIETY AND RATIONING: THE PILLARS OF EFFECTIVE NUTRITION THROUGHOUT LIFE

It’s through studies like the one conducted by Dongyeop Lee’s team¹, published in 2015, that we’re gradually coming to understand what research has long suggested: moderating calories and increasing the variety of nutrients improves quality of life and life expectancy.

Gaining suppleness, firmness and hydration are also part of the benefits your skin receives from better nutrition. This is because nutrients play a key role in the aging process, as explained in our article on epigenetics.

In this context, your intestinal flora is a precious ally that you must take advantage of to improve the health of your skin.

WHY AND HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR INTESTINAL FLORA?

The health of your skin depends on the health of your intestinal flora. This is why doctors are constantly looking for ways to take care of it and prevent the onset of certain chronic diseases by providing nutritional advice. This advice ranges from general dietary practices to common food suggestions (e.g. vegetable broths).

In addition, some preparations offer your body active ingredients whose beauty benefits are directly addressed to your skin.

Javanese jamu to improve the absorption of your nutrients

A traditional beverage emblematic of Javanese culture, jamu is composed of all-natural ingredients whose individual effects are accompanied by a synergy of tremendous potential.

Existing in different formats and capitalizing on different combinations of active ingredients, this drink can be used as a skin detoxifier, analgesic or immune stimulant.

Among the recurring ingredients of jamu, we find:

  • Black pepper;
  • Ginger;
  • Turmeric.

By concocting a drink with hot milk, ginger, fresh turmeric and a touch of black pepper, you can enjoy the following benefits :

  • An increase in the permeability of your intestines (thanks to the black pepper), which improves their ability to absorb nutrients;
  • Stimulation of your skin’s antioxidant and immune defenses in general (thanks to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of ginger and turmeric);
  • An amplification of these effects (thanks to the synergy of piperine, the active ingredient of black pepper, and curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric, which can multiply the stimulating, antioxidant and analgesic effects of the drink up to 10 times).

By helping to set up an easier pathway for the nutrients you consume, preparations like jamu are ideal allies in diets that precede a rebalancing of your eating habits.

Quinoa and cauliflower with roasted almonds and hazelnuts for a nutrient boost

However, to provide your skin with the elements it needs to maintain itself by limiting oxidative stressors, you need to go one step further. The next step is to eat a low-calorie but nutrient-rich dish, such as quinoa and cauliflower with roasted almonds and hazelnuts.

Cauliflower is an important source of vitamin C and has the advantage of being 85% water, which helps you rehydrate.

In addition, its average calcium (22 mg per 100 g), potassium (299 mg per 100 g) and magnesium (15 mg per 100 g) content helps prevent the weakening of your bones and cardiovascular system.

Also acting in this sense, quinoa is a source of energy without gluten, which limits the risks of inflammation of your intestines during digestion, in order to maintain a maximum absorption of your nutrients.

Finally, almonds and hazelnuts are an excellent source of non-animal proteins, whose amino acids are essential for the production of key molecules in your skin, such as collagen to maintain its firmness or elastin for its elasticity.
