Get, set, ready for winter!

One should understand that our diets need to change every now and then to allow our body to get proper nutrients. If you are following a fixed pattern of diet then this will definitely challenge our body system to fight back the changes in weathers. In india we have variety of seasons and variety of seasonal produce which are available in daily grocery market and veggie market. These fresh things signal us to take home for more variety and season friendly eating.
While dry skin can be a result of the drying up of the sebaceous glands of the skin, it can be worked upon externally only up to an extent. No amount of external moisturisation will render a glow that comes from within and is achievable only when you practice healthy eating habits. Winter in India can get quite brutal; this is exactly why we need to load up on more nutrient dense items that would give extra nourishment to the body.
So as far as dry skin is concern we have two questions ….
– What to apply?
– What to eat?

What to apply – External oil application works wonder; in case you battle acute dryness try applying a thin film of oils like sesame, coconut, corn or sunflower oil on your face before turning in.

We will focus on second question , what to eat ?

1. Sweet potatoes

The humble tuber is a winter favourite and comes loaded with vitamin A, essential for skin repair, and beta-carotene which helps shield the skin against winter woes.
Sweet potatoes are also an excellent source of beta carotene which is an antioxidant that turns into vitamin A in our bodies. Antioxidants protect our skin from free radicals and vitamin A deficiency is a huge reason for dull, dry skin. While consuming foods high in beta carotene is essential for healthy hair and skin, using vitamin A driven products is ideal for supple, glowing skin. This is just one of the reasons why vitamin A has been listed as one of the top vitamins for healthy skin.

2. Nuts and seeds

Nuts and seeds are good for your health. But aside from filling a hunger gap with good fats, fiber and protein, they can help make skin supple, smooth and younger looking.
Need we say more? These are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin E and essential fatty acids that play a pivotal role in nourishing the body from within. Regular nut consumption helps in staving off and repairing skin cell damage from free radicals and accelerates the process of skin cell repair and regeneration. You will feel your skin getting smoother and suppler after introducing these to your daily diet, just a handful a day is enough.

it’s hard to be virtuous about your diet when you’re surrounded by mounds of glistening laddoos, creamy barfi and crispy fried namkeen treats. Don’t stress out too much if you’ve overindulged during Diwali, because all you need to do is follow a detox regimen to get back to your healthy, happy self.

In a nutshell, detoxifying helps you cleanse your system of toxins imbibed from all the calorie-laden foods you’ve been gorging on. It’s also a good way to speed up your metabolism and enhance your overall health.

Here’s why post Diwali is the best time to detox:

Rid your system of excess sugar

Your body needs to recuperate from all the sweet treats you’ve binged on. When you eat more sugar, your body demands more insulin, which in turn puts a strain on your pancreas. In the long term, this can cause chronic fatigue, diabetes and weight gain.

Remove toxins from the body

Pollution levels are alarmingly high at this time of year, and they can affect our metabolism, immune system and are responsible for cancer, neurological diseases, heart disease, strokes, and more. While our bodies have a built-in detox function (the liver, for instance, is a detoxifying organ) those organs are constantly on overdrive. A detox programme can help improve this natural function.

Improves immunity

When the seasons change, our immune system is at its most vulnerable. Detoxing can help strengthen its functioning to ensure we can fight off infection.

Accelerate weight loss & increase metabolic levels

Toxins that enter your body are stored in your fat cells, which are metabolized, or broken down leading to weight loss. During this process, toxins stored in the cells are released into your body. So while you lose weight, you’re also releasing into your body’s circulatory system a large amount of stored toxins, which can slow down your metabolism and affect your hormones.

Since storing your body fat is not an option, you have to reduce the number of toxins entering your body. That’s where a regular detox plan helps.

Restore your body’s balance

While your body detoxes naturally every day, this process is influenced by the lifestyle choices you make. A bad diet and lack of exercise can cause a toxic build-up, which can lead to fatigue, muscle ache, sinus congestion, headaches, bloating and gas, sleep problems, water retention and weight gain. Detoxing by making the right food choices and exercising can help reboot the body’s natural detoxification systems.

Contrary to popular perception, detoxifying doesn’t mean you starve yourself. On the contrary, all you need to do is:

  • Choose the right foods and get your body back into eating moderate proportions at regular intervals
  • Increase your water intake
  • Add more fiber to your meals
  • Avoid processed foods
  • Quit sugar for a week, since you’ve had more than your fair share of sweets in the recent past.
  • Get back into an exercise regime. Even a 30-minute brisk walk can help!
