I tell my clients that what they put in their mouths is as important as the products they apply on their skin. Food gets digested and broken down into vitamins, minerals and amino acids that your body can use to build healthy skin. If you crash diet or eat highly processed foods, your skin won’t be as strong and supple as it could be.
For example, if you don’t eat enough protein, you are depriving your skin of the amino acids that go into making collagen (which makes your skin strong) and elastic tissue (which makes it supple).
Add these foods to your daily food for natural radiance. Who hasn’t ever aired a complaint about their appearance: wrinkles, puffy eyes, sleep-deprived? Go ahead, insert your issue here. Here’s the good news: a solution may be in what you add to your grocery cart. Try these beauty foods for a natural glow and radiance from your smile to your skin.
Essential Foods for Beautiful Skin
Avocados are not just for eating!
A good source of biotin, avocados help to prevent dry skin and brittle hair and nails. When applied topically, they can hydrate parched skin. Create a moisturizing mask. Pit the fruit, puree the pulp, and pat it on your face. The oil acts as an emollient. It also contains beneficial vitamin E.
Sip your way to healthy skin
Green tea is high on the list of skin-friendly beverages thanks to its impressive storehouse of polyphenols. Aim for four cups throughout your day.
Overweight or obese exercisers burned off three more pounds and 7 percent more belly fat when they drank green tea instead of another beverage with the same calories.
Reach for tomatoes
A German study found that lycopene-rich tomato paste helped participants prevent sunburn when they combined it with olive oil, daily for ten weeks. Besides being a great source of the antioxidant lycopene, tomatoes are considered a high-carotenoid fruit. These nutrients may help slow down cellular damage from free radicals.
Crack open some eggs
Protein helps repair cells that have suffered free radical damage. Eggs, a complete source of protein, also contain biotin, an essential vitamin that protects against dry skin.
Put pomegranate on your list
When applied topically, this antioxidant-rich fruit may help skin create more collagen, while speeding healing.
Looking to add Omega-3 fatty acids to your diet but not a fan of fish? Walnuts are a rich source of Omega-3s, which help put a shine in your hair and aid in making skin smoother and younger looking.
Build better skin with beans
Another protein source, legumes help repair cells that have suffered free radical damage. During digestion, protein breaks down into amino acids, the building blocks of cells. Amino acids help to speed the repair and regeneration of skin cells and collagen.
Make sure you’re not neglecting the rest of your diet
You also need to make sure you’re getting enough carbohydrates and protein!
Lastly, water is the secret to them all
Drink tons and tons of water as it glows up your body and face, and the hydration will help flush out toxins.
