There are so many things you can do to care for your skin. Washing your makeup off at night, getting regular facials, applying product morning & night and even having a peel or laser treatment on occasion are great ways to combat the signs of aging. We’re here to help you with all of the external treatments, but what you can do for your skin from the inside is truly amazing!
It’s easy to work foods into your diet that actually help your skin health! There are 8 foods we want you to incorporate into your meal plan so you can achieve healthy, glowing skin!
AVOCADOS: Not only are they delicious, but they are rich in vitamins A, D and E. Avocados are full of good fats which helps with hydration. Eating avocados might even increase collagen!
BERRIES: All berries are great, but the darker in color, the better, because they contain more antioxidants. Those antioxidants attack the free radicals you are exposed to every day. In addition, berries are rich in vitamin C, which boosts your collagen supply.
SALMON: Salmon is great for your skin! Studies show that this wonder fish could protect against skin cancer. It contains omega-3 fats which is excellent for your skin!
TOMATOES: Add tomatoes everywhere you can! They help protect against sun damage and aging skin. The lycopene in tomatoes stimulates the production of collagen for a more youthful face. But remember, you must cook your tomatoes to get that boost of lycopene.
NUTS: Eat them as a snack, add them to your salads or make some pesto! Nuts are full of vitamin E, selenium, omega-3 fats & zinc. They increase collagen production and protect against cell damage!
GREEN TEA: Green tea helps protect against sun damage by reducing inflammation and fighting free radicals.
DARK CHOCOLATE: Go ahead and treat yourself to this yummy sweet treat. It helps protect against ultraviolet exposure.
WINE: And, finally, pour yourself a glass of red wine! It’s good for your heart, but it’s also good for your skin! The resveratrol (an antioxidant) in red wine helps maintain your youthful looks and fights inflammation.
So, go ahead and indulge in these delicious foods! Your body will love you and your skin will thank you!
