What we put on our body is just as important as what we put in it. If you spend heaps of money buying all of the “miracle” skin cremes, moisturizers, serums and peels but you still eat like a 12 year old, you are wasting your money and time. If you really want a beautiful clear and spot-free complexion, you do need to watch what you eat. With this being said, here is a list of foods that will help your naturally beautiful skin be even more radiant:
Foods To Eat:
Salmon: Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which serve as building blocks for healthy skin cells.
Tuna: This fish is full?of selenium, a mineral that helps promote skin elastin, which leads to better skin elasticity.
Yogurt: This is the perfect snack for beautiful skin. It is?full of probiotics that help reduce skin inflammation and is also a great source of vitamin A, which promotes healthy cell turnover, helps acne and prevents wrinkles.
Avocado: This yummy fruit is full of certain fats that are used by your body to make strong skin cells.
Green Tea: My personal favorite! Green tea contains antioxidants that prevent damage to your skin.
Tomatoes: Studies have shown that tomato’s have something in them that protect against sunburn and sun-induced skin aging.
Blueberries: Blueberries are full of resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant that promotes a variety of healthy heart benefits. Resveratrol also helps?fight free radicals, protects against UV damage and maintains collagen and moisture levels.
Foods Not To Eat (Or Avoid):
Sugary/Starchy Foods: When it comes to foods that have a negative effect on your skin, foods high in sugar and starch at the top of the list. A lot of them are associated with acne breakouts and are known to increase blood sugar level, ultimately leading to glycation of collagen, which is when sugar molecules attach to collagen, leading to collagen stiffening, loss of elasticity and skin wrinkles. So, it’s a no brainer that fresh fruits and veggies are a better choice 🙂
I hope this post helped! Now go have a yummy salad packed with avocados and tomato’s and show off that beautiful Skin!
