How to Eat for Better Skin – Skin Superfoods

Healthier-Thanksgiving

Of course, genetics and lifestyle play an important role in the health of your skin. However, eating properly can also help support your skin from the inside out. Below are some “skin superfoods” you should try adding into your diet.

Water

Water is so important when it comes to skin health!!! It maintains proper organ function, delivers vital nutrients to your body’s cells and help the body eliminate toxins. Keeping your body hydrated from the inside also makes your skin look firmer and clearer.

Broccoli

This tasty veggie is high in important antioxidants – vitamins C and E. The vitamin C aids in collagen production to keep your skin supple, while vitamin E protects your skin against UV damage.

Strawberries

High in Vitamin C, these sweet and delicious berries help to fight wrinkles and dry skin from the inside out by fighting free radicals.

Almonds

The vitamin E in almonds helps protect skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays. However, be sure not to overdo it on the nuts – as they are high in calories and fat – which will surely show up on your waistline.

Carrots

Carrots are high in beta carotene, an antioxidant that is converted to vitamin A inside the body – which helps repair the skin as well as protect against UV rays.

Pumpkin Seeds

A perfect fall snack! The zinc in pumpkin seeds protects your cell membranes, helps maintain collagen, and promotes skin renewal.

Fish

High in healthy omega–3 fats – fish can help strengthen skin cell membranes, protect against sun damage, and may also reduce the risk of certain forms of skin cancer. Omega 3 fats help fight inflammation in the skin while allowing water and nutrients into the skin and protecting it from toxins.

Of course, protecting your skin from the outside with toxin-free sunscreen daily is also very important. Keeping hydrated, eating right and taking good care of your skin will go a long way in avoiding the dreaded crow’s feet – preventing skin problems is much easier than treating them!
