Have you ever heard the expression “you are what you eat?”
When it comes to beautiful skin, it couldn’t be truer. The healthier your diet is, the more your skin will look firm, even, clear and healthy.
If you have a poor diet it can leave your skin looking blemished, sallow, dry, red, irritated or otherwise unattractive.
No matter how many expensive face creams and cleansers you spend your money on, changing your diet will have a much greater effect of the overall look of your skin.
Here are a few delicious and healthy foods that will give you glowing and beautiful skin:
Water: The number one change you can make to your diet to improve your skin is to drink more water. It will help your skin look moist and soft, and it will flush out toxins from your body.
Cantaloupe: High in antioxidants, this delicious fruit will help your body to absorb free radicals and reduce skin problems.
Broccoli: This vegetable is very high in Vitamin A, which is the vitamin which encourages your body to create new skin cells. If you eat more broccoli, your skin will be renewed more quickly and the healthy and fresh skin will show through.
Salmon: This tasty fish, as well as other fishes such as tuna and sardines, is full of Omega 3. This is a type of “good fat” which our body needs, and it will help to reduce inflammation in the skin.
Grapefruit: This zesty breakfast treat is high in Vitamin C, which helps to delay or reduce wrinkles in the skin.
Lean Red Meat: If your skin is looking pale and sallow, you might have an iron deficiency in your diet. Lean red meat which is low in fat is a healthy way to increase your iron intake. If you don’t eat red meat, eggs are an alternate source.
Almonds: This snack is filled with Vitamin E, which protects your skin against sun damage.
