You are what you eat! We hear this time and time again but that’s because it’s true, specially when it comes to your skin. Stayed out all night partying…your skin will show it. Drank too much alcohol on the weekend…your skin will show it. Eat a lot of greasy foods…your skin will show it!
The skin is the largest organ on our body. It protects the body and your most vital organs, so it’s important to protect it by eating the right foods!
Here is a list of the top 5 foods to consume to help you achieve a healthier complexion.
Blueberries are high in fiber, vitamin A, and vitamin C. Blueberries are rich in antioxidants which help protect your skin from free radicals which can cause fine lines and wrinkles.
Salmon is not only high in omega 3 fatty acids but it also helps to moisturize skin, helping it look and feel healthier. It helps reduce the body’s production of inflammatory substances.
Like blueberries spinach is also rich in antioxidants. Spinach is a great source of vitamin B, C & E in addition to omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, iron, potassium and so much more. Spinach is a powerhouse for healthy glowy skin.
Oranges are considered very effective wrinkle preventers by nutritionists all over the world. As we all know, oranges contain high amounts of vitamin C which help improve the texture & color of your skin. The citrus also helps restore collagen which will help with skin’s firmness!
Not only do avocados taste good in almost everything, but they also help prevent blemishes due to the high amount of vitamin A, D & E found in this fruit. Avocados also help fight free radicals which as mentioned before can severely damage the skin.
Eggs help your skin repair tissue. Eggs are high in Selenium, vitamin A and copper. Selenium, prevents skin infections, vitamin A prevents your skin from developing abnormal clumps (which can turn into moles and skin tags) and copper promotes skin elasticity. A triple threat!
