(NaturalNews) What are the secrets of a healthy skin? In this article you'll discover how to step up your skin care regimen to get a skin that glows.

Our skin is a fingerprint of what's going on inside the body. This is why nutrition and detoxification beat cosmetics hands down. Here are seven tips to nourish and protect your skin naturally:

Sauna. This centuries old ritual detoxifies the body and increases blood flow to the skin. As a result - and this is important - your subcutaneous and surface tissue gets more nutrients so the quality of your skin gradually improves.

Carotenoids. Dull and pale skin in the winter? The easiest thing you can do is to consume fruits and vegetables rich in carotenoids. A recent UK study led by Dr Ian Stephen revealed that these substances give skin a natural healthy color and golden glow. "We found that, given the choice between skin colour caused by suntan and skin colour caused by carotenoids, people preferred the carotenoid skin colour," explains Dr Ian Stephen. Carotenoids can be found in carrots, tomatoes and spinach.

Water. Drinking adequate amounts of purified water is essential for optimum skin health. Chronic dehydration will make your skin look older and less smooth.

Vitamins C and E. Our skin reacts well to certain vitamins. For example, vitamin C protects fibers that support skin structure - elastin and collagen - by reducing free radical damage. Vitamin E is another powerful antioxidant that protects you from damage caused by sun exposure. Both vitamins are present in fruits and vegetables.

Omega-3 fatty acids. Essential fatty acids reduce inflammation and allergy-related eczema. Omega-3s can also be used to keep your skin moist and flexible.

Silica and zinc. Both silica and zinc are vital for the maintenance of youthful and healthy skin. Silica deficiency may lead to reduced skin elasticity and promote wrinkles. Zinc is essential for skin regeneration and oil content control. You can find these trace minerals in pumpkin seeds and shellfish (zinc) or green beans, cucumber and strawberries (silica).

Sleep. Most people need seven to eight hours a night. Allowing adequate time for sleep will improve bags and tired eyes.

Our nutrition and lifestyle are the keys to healthy looking skin. Focus on creating health from the inside out and you'll soon achieve youthful, smooth and healthy skin.
