Skin Nutrition — Diet for Healthy Skin

Skin Nutrition — Diet for Healthy Skin

The majority of pre-existing cosmetic complaints aren't substantially treatable by diet, however overall skin quality can be maximized and losses in skin health prevented by reliable implementation of a diverse, balanced diet.

Skin care products are not a silver bullet solution to cosmetic complaints and neither are crucial sun avoidance and daily sunscreen use able to create truly healthy skin on their own.

Moreover, individuals in poor health often respond undesirably to many skin care products until such time that their general health improves.

Beneath the skin, poor dietary habits are thought to be directly related to approximately one third of all cancers — a figure similar to that of smoking.

Ideally, food is about more than energy supply for survival — it can be about active disease prevention fostering healthier and more reliably beautiful skin.

Nature's phytochemicals are possibly the best (and least rewarded) of physicians.

Optimal therapeutic skin care (care of the skin as an organ) combines permanent use of recommended skincare with permanently sound dietary factors.

"Faire Le Marché — Produce "à Nous" ... French Health/Skincare "à Vous"

Paris Market Scene

Paris Market Scene, 2000.

Paris is home to more than sixty markets housing a rotation of more than 20,000 fresh food vendors.

Among this incredible diversity, the label "à nous" adorns the most sought after produce, designating those fruits and vegetables the provender has raised themselves.

Melbourne has but a handful of regular markets — Queen Victoria, Prahran, South Melbourne — but they still yield uncommon antioxidant diversity, as Milk Thistle, Fresh Almonds and Pistachios, and Rainbow Chard among others.

There can be no question that French Skin owes more to the impeccably health-caring French Lifestyle than it does to the skin care products which complement and enhance that lifestyle.

France's foremost market is Les Halles.

Milk Thistle — About and Basic Preparation

Whole Milk Thistle

Whole unprepared milk thistle.

Remove the section which joins each stalk at the base — it traps more grit than you can get out — and discard.

Separate the milk thistle and soak in several changes of a large amount of water, remembering to drain water from the bottom, rather than turning over in a colander to avoid filtering sediment through the milk thistle.

Freshly Cut Milk Thistle

Freshly cut milk thistle quickly leeches a milky substance for which people of ancient civilizations found medicinal uses. The uncooked milk has an extremely bitter taste.

Chop the milk thistle thinly and sauteé or wilt lightly with freshly crushed garlic. Finish with lemon juice.

Increasing cooking time reduces the distinctive taste (which is similar to spinach) but probably reduces the value of some of its beneficial constituents.

The constituents of the thistle's milk include silybin, isosilybin, silidianin, and silychristin, biologically active antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.

Consumption improves "anti-aging" defense against free radicals, systemically, including throughout the skin.

A small number of skin care products contain silymarin for the purpose of limiting skin aging by protecting against UV-damage to the epidermis in conjunction with sunscreens.

Further information is available in the silymarin monograph.

Heritage Eggplants — Queen Victoria Market

Heritage Eggplants — Queen Victoria Market

"Heritage" Eggplants — Source: Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne.

There are at least fifty naturally-occurring varieties of eggplant available on Earth, but you'll only find one or two of them at your local supermarket.

They're likely to be those which are:

  • the easiest to grow;
  • the easiest to transport;
  • the easiest to promote and sell;
  • the most readily recognised.

The nutrition of the "super" market bares no semblance to the antioxidant diversity required for the synergistic benefits mandated by actual "anti-aging" and is not completely and reliably available in supplements.

Seedless grapes too, seem like a "super" idea, yet grape seed (Vitis Vinifera) proanthocyanidins are among the strongest antioxidants.

Coles, Safeway and Woolworths will gladly sell back to you what their food producers have taken out by way of additional products from Blackmores, Suisse and Nature's Own in the "health care" isle.

The "supermarket" — though often convenient — is ultimately representative of less physical benefit than the traditional market it replaces.

Topically, the situation for a patient's organic skin is comparable:

  • The most popular of skin care products are among the worst — the most effective of products typically have a short shelf life, are rarely discussed, not American and generally unavailable within the US;

  • The most common of skin care practices represent skin care failure — bona fide skin care is not mass produced and available as brands, products and homogenous advice — it is latent within individually-relevant ingredients;

  • No one brand or method provides a comprehensive or permanent answer to individual needs just as no one single nutrient is best;

  • As a purportedly superior answer to the department store, beauty therapists do not concentrate on fundamental biological matters, they exist in a similarly financially-driven vacuum mandating refutation of the skin as organic and placement of business concerns above those of patients;

  • Excess skin care and antioxidant use — like heavy reliance on non-diverse foods — produces relative long-term detriment — almost all current skincare use is mindless or without skill to a greater or lesser extent.

For more eggplant diversity, see David Cavagnaro's Melbourne University Eggplant Gallery.

Rainbow Chard — About and Basic Preparation

Rainbow Chard — About and Basic Preparation

Rainbow chard's neon colours point to its vast phytochemical, plant pigment and nutritional content which encompass significant amounts of antioxidant Vitamin C and E, carotenes and minerals, particularly iron, calcium, selenium, zinc, potassium, magnesium and manganese.

The lutein content is probably in the order of 12 mg per cup (similar to spinach and kale).

Rainbow chard appears to be related to silverbeet, beetroot and rhubard. It has an earthy taste, stronger than spinach but less than beets.

Prepare and cook in a style similar to spinach or milk thistle.

As older stalks take longer to cook than leaves and younger stems, you may like to reserve these for addition toward the end of cooking.

Cooking until "just done" helps preserve its nutritional value as well as its magnificient colours, which can interest children.

The youngest leaves and stalks may be used in salads or sandwiches without cooking.

You can also separate the stalks and leaves entirely, treating them separately — the leaves similar to spinach, and the stalks similar to asparagus.

Consume within 1-2 days of taking home.

Very easy to grow, tolerating a range of poor conditions, and may be harvested piecemeal.

Fish Oil — Growth of the Brain of Homo Sapiens

Some scientists theorize that fish oil was key to the growth of the brain of Homo sapiens.

Evidence suggests that no other hominids such as Neanderthals ate fish. *

Improving Skin Texture and Tone: PG-1 and PG-3 (Prostaglandins)

Prostaglandins of series 2 reduce the quality of the skin's texture.

Series 1 and seres 3 prostaglandins allow for soft, better hydrated, silky and smooth skin.

Skin Care and Prostaglandin Series 1

The key building block for series 1 prostaglandin is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), found in high concentration in evening primrose.

The body can synthesize GLA from linoleic acid, however people with diabetes and eczema, among other conditions and factors, have a defect in the enzyme that makes this conversion.

The enyzme is called delta-6 desaturase enzyme.

Skin Care and Prostaglandin Series 3

Series 3 prostaglandins are formed from omega-3 unsaturated fats known as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).

Rich Sources of EPA for Skin Care

  • cold-water marine fish: salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sardines, tuna;
  • suitable EPA skin care supplements.

The body is also able to convert omega-3 unsaturated fat in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) into EPA to increase the production of Prostaglandin series 3.

  • Flaxseed oil yields 58% alpha-linolenic acid.

Effects of EPA Supplements on Skin

  • prostaglandin series 3 production and synthesis in epidermal cells is increased;
  • skin texture and density improves;
  • skin hydration improves;
  • skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea are improved.

The timeframe for improvement after the commencement of supplementation is 45 to 75 days.

The rate of skin improvement is determined by the rate at which the epidermis replaces itself in entirety. Depending on your age, this takes anywhere from 45 to 75 days.

Given the time taken to achieve improvement, it is recommended to purchase essential fatty acid supplies three months in advance and to only use the purest and most active essential fatty acid supplements.

Additional Effects of Fish Oil on Skin

Fish oils, particularly those extracted from salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sardines and tuna, also contain DHA.

The body can also convert DHA into EPA, which adds to the potential for series 3 prostaglandin synthesis within the epidermal cells, leading to additional improvement of skin texture, tone and overall condition.

DHA also promotes the development and function of the brain, and is required for vision.

Essential Fatty Acid Supplementation and Improvement to Skin Texture

Essential fatty acid supplements have come to be recommended for a variety of health conditions, both preventatively and in active treatment.

Heart disease and cancer are two examples of conditions where essential fatty acids are recommended.

Omega-3 fats found in fish and flaxeed oils, absent from many weight loss diets, prevent the formation of useful and diversely beneficial prostaglandin hormones (also known as PG-3).

Supplementation with essential oils containing gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and omega-3 fats have been shown to benefit the management of:

  • arthritis
  • many inflammatory skin conditions, such as rosacea
  • eczema
  • psoriasis
  • fibrocystic breast disease
  • ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) - a very contentious diagnosis
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Pre-menstrual symptoms

Essential Fatty Acids Soften, Smooth, Hydrate and Firm Skin

There is a scientific reason behind the ability of essential fatty acids to improve many aspects of skin texture and assist in the management of skin conditions.

The reason is related to the synthesis of prostaglandin hormones within epidermal cells.

Developing skin cells require many elements in order to develop without problems, and live as long as possible.

Slowing the rate at which skin cells age is fundamental to an effective anti-aging skin care treatment.

This is why effective skin care products contain a perfect blend of biologically relevant materials (amino acids, proteins, vitamins, minerals, trace elements and enzymes), and exclude those ingredients which are not skin-native.

Developing skin cells extract essential fatty acids from the bloodstream. If they are present in inadequate concentrations they will be taken up by organs other than the skin, and the essential fatty acids remaining in circulation will be inadequate for the cells' needs.

Epidermal Skin Cells Convert Essential Fatty Acids

A variety of different fats are used by healthy skin. The epidermal skin cells convert essential fatty acids to prostaglandins.

Prostaglandin series 2 hormones will render the skin dry, rough and/or scaly.

Prostaglandin seres 1 and series 3 hormones will render the skin soft, smooth and moist, generally supporting many of its functions.

Most Diets Produce Excess Series 2 Prostaglandin Hormones

Diets high in saturated fats produce hormones that result in dry, rough, uneven skin texture.

Many weight-loss diets remove all fats from the equation.

A complete anti-aging skin treatment will utilize low-glycemic index foods and actually favor fats high in GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) and the omega-3 fats.

Perfect skin texture and condition has been made an impossibility, courtesy of most modern, Western dietary traditions.

Effective Supplementation of Essential Fatty Acids for the Improvement of Skin Texture and Condition

A marked improvement in the condition of the skin will take around three months after the implementation of suitable essential fatty acid supplements.

The rate of skin improvement is determined by the rate at which the epidermis replaces itself in entirety. Depending on your age, this takes anywhere from 45 to 75 days.

Given the time taken to achieve improvement, it is recommended to purchase essential fatty acid supplies three months in advance and to only use the purest and most active essential fatty acid supplements.

Differences Between Essential Fatty Acid Supplements Used in Skin Care and Treatment

To achieve genuinely young-looking skin, characterized by bounce and turgidity, only the most potent and pure supplements will be effective, especially in the treatment of more mature skin.

The inter-cellular matrix cannot be adequately rebuilt with weak supplements.

It is important to note the following:

  • the diet must already be rich in fish, green leafy vegetables and unsaturated oils in order for the skin to substantially benefit from essential fatty acid supplementation;
  • evening primrose oil is the only suitable supplement source of essential fatty acids, because borage and blackcurrant oils have been shown to have adverse effects;
  • the best source of evening primrose is the Canterbury Plains of New Zealand -- the unpolluted air and mineral rich soils produce the most potent seeds;
  • cold-pressed evening primrose oil destroys much of the needed ingredients;
  • internal supplementation must be augmented by topical care to get the most out of the physical improvement in skin quality, in particular Cells-Life Serum (for high natural glycosaminoglycan and hyaluronate content, as well as other elements which make up the skin's inter-cellular matrix) , Hydra-Ger Mask, Synchro and the Skin Immunity Treatment should be used.
  • breast milk is a rich source of essential fatty acids -- the quality of baby's skin speaks for itself.

Essential Fatty Acid Supplementation - Important Skin Treatment Notes

Essential fatty acid supplements for skin texture improvement will only have a good effect on aging skin and skin conditions such as rosacea when given the right systemic environment.

Essential Fatty Acid Supplementation Notes for Aging Skin and Skin Conditions such as Rosacea

  • Reduce arachidonic acid buildup to reduce synthesis of series 2 prostaglandins (PG-2).
    • Reduce or restrict intake of high-fat meat and high-fat dairy products. Substitute olive oil in place of sunflower oil, safflower oil and especially blended vegetable oils.
    • Reduce or restrict alcohol consumption.
    • Reduce or restrict sugar intake.
    • Reduce or restrict hydrogenated and partially-hydrogenated fat intake.
    • Follow the dietary recommendations which form part of the anti-aging skin treatment.
  • Supplement with a suitable essential fatty acid supplement of 1,200mg.
  • Takes the 1,200mg 2-3 times a day.
  • Results take at least 3 months to become evident.
  • Consume a good natural (food) source of fish oil 1-2 times a day.
  • Combine the essential fatty acid supplement with those nutrients which are co-factors in prostaglandin synthesis.
    • Vitamin C - 1000mg over several doses, as it is rapidly denatured once consumed.
    • Vitamin E - 400iu (natural form)
    • Betacarotene - 10,000iu
    • Selenium - 100mcg
    • Zinc - 15mg
    • Vitamin A - 2,500iu

Other nutrients also play a role, but these are the main ones relevant to this skin treatment topic.

Check with a physician before implementing any dietary changes to ensure they are suited to your individual situation.

Selenium Toner

For all the available information, careful intake of a few fresh brazil nuts a day and some topical skin care containing selenomethionine should serve as perfect prophylaxis against a plethora of partially avoidable woes encompassing poor skin quality, cancer, arthritis and poor immunity.

Jan Marini C-ESTAMINS provides 500 micrograms of selenium per day (along with a diversity of other beneficial though often hard to acquire nutrients), a dose recognised as providing therapeutic rather than maintenance benefit, although if you take Jan Marini C-ESTAMINS you should not also eat generous amounts of brazil nuts on a regular basis.

Kodak Selenium Toner is an artistic photographic tool and is not for cutaneous application(!).
