Taking Care of Your Skin

 Nutrition

Modeling is a career which is often influenced by wishes of other people, but nutrition and exercise are two areas over which you can have complete control. What you eat will affect your personality, appearance, attitude and most importantly, your performance. A balanced diet can give your skin a healthy glow, your hair that extra shine, your eyes that special brightness and your teeth that unforgettable gleam.

Facts about Food

The nutrients in food supply energy, encourage growth and help keeps the body working. Foods can be divided into three groups, carbohydrates, fats and proteins.

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are the body’s favorite fuel, providing the energy for brain work and all physical activity. A balanced diet should include 50-60 per cent carbohydrate and there are many to choose from : corn, grains, potatoes, rice, beans and fruit. As with any food, if you eat more carbohydrate than you need, the excess will be stored in the body as fat.

Fats

Fats play an important role In the body. Apart from being the largest store of potential energy, they also cushion the internal organs and help keep the body warm. If you have insufficient fat in your diet, your skin will become dry and your hair limp and dull. To get energy your body will begin to use protein, which should be used specifically for building muscle and repairing damaged tissue. As a rough guide, fats should account for 30 percent of your daily diet, and in case you are worried about cholesterol or heart disease, make sure you opt for skimmed dairy products and polyunsaturated fats and oils.

Proteins

Protein is present in every cell in the body and it is vital for growth and development of all tissues. It is found in such foods are meats, fish, poultry, nuts, peas and beans. Protein should make up 10-15 percent of your diet.

Other Nutrients

Vitamins

Although they are not a source of energy, vitamins are essential for healthy and normal body development. They cannot be made by the body but are produced in plants and in animals which eat plants. If you eat a balanced diet, you will be getting all the vitamins you require. Fruits and vegetables are best source and it is always better to eat them raw.

Iron

Iron is carried in the blood and is vital to well being. A deficiency of iron can cause weakness, loss of appetite, reduce resistance of infection and lead to fatigue. Good sources of iron are lean red meat, liver, prunes, kidney beans leafy vegetables and whole grain bread.

Calcium

For many women, especially thin women, calcium deficiency can be a real problem.Calcium absorption tends to fall with age so the body draws on calcium deposits in the bones. This can lad to bones becoming thin and brittle – a condition called osteoporosis. To avoid this, make sure you get an adequate daily allowance of calcium by consuming dairy products, dark and leafy vegetables.

Water

The body needs about 2 pints/1 litre of liquid a day. Water can be consumed in quantity with no ill effects. It is great for cleansing the system and keeping the skin clear and does not have any calories. Foods that have high water content such as melons, cucumbers and celery are also low in calories.
