Anne Marie Reuzenaar orthomolecular nutritionist: “Water! The skin is one of our most important excretory organs, which is why it is also called our third kidney. So not only through the kidneys and the intestines do waste products leave our bodies? For a proper disposal of the waste you will have to drink 1.5 to 2 liters of water per day. A piece of lemon in the water also helps to properly dispose of waste. This is due to the vitamin C and flavoring. Also drink occasional ginger tea, to support the digestion and the liver. ”

Vitamins, minerals, and carotene: it’s all in this red beauty. You will also find Penelope in the tomato. This anti-oxidant would protect the skins from burning and aging due to sunlight. Especially cooked tomato products, such as tomato paste, contain a high concentration of Penelope. Lots of soups and healthy pastas so eat! ”
Floor van Boater, blogger: “For a healthy skins, several vitamins are important, such as vitamin E. I get that mainly from olive oil.

Olive oil has a positive effect on the skin; it contains the anti-inflammatory substance nonlethal. And let small inflammations in the body are precisely an important cause of accelerate aging! You can buy a good olive oil from ten euros per liter in a dark glass. Make sure there is at least ‘extra-virgin olive oil’ on the packaging. Other variants have been refine and largely lose their healthy properties. ”
Roy van red Poled, food center spokesperson: “Healthy eating together with sufficient exercise form the basis for a healthy weight, healthy body and therefore the skin. This in turn reduces the risk of diseases and thus an optimal basis for organs such as the skin. It is also important to vary. If you always eat the same, it is difficult to get all the necessary nutrients, so vitamins and minerals. Your usual dietary pattern and the long-term effect that has an effect on our body, or more specifically the skin, is therefore important.
