A good night’s sleep and a healthy diet give the skin a boost, says study by Lycored
A good night’s sleep and a healthy diet are the key factors in achieving glowing skin, according to a new study by Lycored.
The Cycle of Glow study found that 66% of respondents cited getting the right amount of sleep as the most likely factor in achieving a glowing complexion, with 655 picking good nutrition.
Skin hydration came in at 56%, while skin care products were chosen by 39% of respondents.
“Consumers are looking for a healthy glow but they know they can’t always get it from a tube. Increasingly they understand the link between wellness factors, such as getting the right amount of sleep and eating a balanced diet, in achieving healthy, radiant skin,” said Zev Ziegler, Head of Global Brand & Marketing, Health at Lycored.
The survey respondents were also asked to rank four foods in order of how likely they thought they were to give their skin a healthy glow.
Eight in ten (79%) ranked foods rich in vitamin E, such as almonds and sunflower seeds in either first or second place, while foods rich in carotenoids, such as carrots and tomatoes, were ranked in either first or second place by two thirds (65%) of respondents, ahead of foods rich in collagen (46%).
