Nutrients play an important role in maintaining a healthy skin. Wellness is dependent on providing the body with the necessary building blocks to restore and grow healthfully. Diet plays an important role in maintaining the health of the skin. Diet should supply all the nutrients needed to build health, namely, protein, carbohydrates, fats, essential fatty acids and all the essential vitamins and minerals. Such a diet will consist of liberal quantities of seeds, nuts and grains, fresh vegetables and fruits, supplemented by special protective foods like vegetable oils, yogurt, honey and yeast.

In today’s world, it is difficult to get all the needed nutrients from even the most healthful diets. Whole food supplements are made by concentrating foods. When concentrated correctly the foods supply a multitude of nutrients.

A study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found that people who replaced processed carbohydrates with high-protein foods and whole grains broke out less. The reason? High-glycemic foods cause your insulin levels to rise. The insulin stimulates oil-producing hormones, which leaves you with pimples.  Cut the junk, and you could see an improvement in Acne in about six weeks. Instead, reach for snacks like peanut butter, nuts, and avocado—these healthy fats provide nutrients for the hair, skin, nails, and basic metabolism.
