Healthy Food for Skin: 5 Foods to Make Your Skin Glow

healthy food for skin

It has been said that you are what you eat.

While it may be fun to eat things like chips and pizza while drinking a nice, cold beer, in this post we will be discussing foods that are both healthy for your body and will help to maximize the appearance of your skin.

You don’t always want to make a daily regimen of creams and lotions the bread and butter of your skin care. So, we are going to give you a few healthy food-for-skin recommendations that are both versatile and easy to find.

 

Don’t get me wrong, using skin products that enhance and bring your appearance to the next level is great! Yet, they can be expensive, and generally are time consuming to apply on a daily basis.

Let’s begin by building a foundation: normal and natural eating. We all have to do it – and most of us love doing it! Start by using this guide to begin including a generous portion of these foods in your daily meals.

Green Tea

First, choose a well-known and advertised drink with [easyazon_link identifier=”B000SATIFA” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”freshfaceclub-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]green tea[/easyazon_link]. One nice thing about most drinks is that you can have them almost any time and generally are low in calories.

Green tea is famous for its natural antioxidant properties and being good for your health by preventing various types of cancers. Antioxidants help repair tissue damage caused by a number of naturally occurring events (i.e. overexposure to the sun or aging).

Seafood

Having fish at least once a week is recommended for its high protein and generally low fat content. But what kind of fish will work the greatest advantage for your skin?

The answer is salmon. Salmon has the popular Omega-3 fatty acid that not only improves the elasticity of your skin, but also helps to keep the pores of your skin open and breathing. Remember that skin needs to breathe to keep healthy, just like you!

Olive Oil

When deciding on how to best cook your fish, why not choose to grill it? You can do this best by using a bit of [easyazon_link identifier=”B00C70CHR0″ locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”freshfaceclub-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]olive oil[/easyazon_link]. Beyond making your meal tastier, it helps keep your skin looking fresh by protecting and moisturizing it naturally.

Research has shown that the naturally occurring compound called squalene, liberally present in olive oil, is beneficial in retaining the moisture in your skin. As an added benefit, you can also apply olive oil right out of the bottle directly to your skin. Super easy!

Strawberries

If you prefer a diet primarily based in the salad genre, don’t forget to give a serious look at including strawberries in that salad. Like many fruits, they are high in vitamin C, but they also work to increase the production of collagen in your body. Your body is about 30 percent collagen, helping the skin to maintain its strength and prevent it from wrinkling.

Not a salad eater? Then the tried and true favorite, strawberries and cream! Combine these two for a tasty and healthy skin dessert.

Almonds

A late night snack of almonds is an excellent alternative to the usual snack faire. If you like the vitamin C in our earlier recommendation of strawberries, then you will love the vitamin E content of almonds.

Vitamin E assists in protecting those collagen healthy skin cells so that your skin not only looks healthy, but actually is healthy. And we might even look the other way if once in a while those almonds happened to be wrapped in some chocolaty goodness…

There are many recommendations on which foods you can eat which will create and maintain a healthy skin tone and appearance. The choices here are not exotic so they don’t require special ordering and can be found in most retail grocery stores.

In some ways, each of these “healthy food for healthy skin choices” contain benefits for your entire body, so you can eat normally and build the foundation for a healthy diet and superior skin appearance now and into the coming years.
