March is National Nutrition Month! What you eat and good nutrition are not only good for a healthy body, but it affects the health of your skin also. When you are healthy on the inside, it reflects on the outside.
One way to improve your health is to eat foods that will help you keep your blood sugar low and steady. Choosing foods with a low glycemic index will help you do that. If you are eating cookies or candy during the day, your blood sugar will spike, which means you will have more insulin in your bloodstream to help your cells absorb the sugar…..not good. Also, when you eat a lot of sugar, the sugar granules can sit on your skin, which will weaken it and cause it to sag……also not good! Try to stick to fruits with a low glycemic index (apples, oranges or bananas among others), vegetables and whole grains to keep a steady blood sugar level.
