Skin inflammation is becoming a more and more common problem. Sometimes it has its origin in stress, food, lack of movement, the use of aggressive products for our skin... Today I would like to share with you how to avoid skin inflammation.
Inflammation is a response of the immune system to be alert. The problem occurs when this inflammation becomes chronic, as the stimulus that activates it is constant.
- Fruits and vegetables: they are rich in vitamins and antioxidants. In particular, the flavonoids present in red fruits, fennel and cauliflower prevent the entry of toxins into the intestinal cells.
- Whole grains: thanks to their fiber content, they prevent blood glucose peaks and help reduce inflammation and free radicals. Gluten-free cereals such as buckwheat, quinoa or rice are particularly recommended.
- Nuts and seeds: they are especially rich in omega-3 fatty acids, essential to keep inflammation under control. Pistachios, flax and pumpkin seeds are the best option.
- Herbs and spices: contain phytochemicals and antioxidants. Especially turmeric, pepper, curry, ginger, oregano, rosemary and thyme.
- Tea: the polyphenols present in white and green teas are highly recommended.
- Reduce consumption of dairy products, refined sugars and processed products.
