Ever hear that expression ‘You Are What You Eat’? Well it holds true when dealing with your skin. Eating good foods will result in beautiful, healthy, glowing skin.
Omega 3 fish oils and fatty acids are beneficial to the elasticity and collagen growth in your skin- think salmon, walnuts, almonds etc. Green tea also hydrates, is full of antioxidants, and will help improve elasticity. Vitamin C plays a huge role is giving your skin a healthy glow and keeping skin firm because it is chock full of antioxidants- so citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits are great, as well as kiwi, broccoli and cauliflower.
Foods with Vitamin A help our bodies produce retinol which speeds up the process of cell restoration leaving your skin with younger and smoother looking skin cells. Foods high in Vitamin A include sweet potatoes, carrots, apricots, butternut squash, cantaloupe, and kale (leafy greens). The upside is, if you eat a ton of orange foods you may develop a natural glow or fake tan 😉
Water is actually the #1 skin saver here. Staying hydrated is so important to keeping your skin clear, moisturized, and smooth. When you don’t drink enough your skin get dull, thirsty, and dry. That ain’t pretty. Drink up!
