THE BEST FOODS TO EAT FOR A HEALTHY SKIN

There is a popular saying that goes like, “Healthy skin starts from the inside out.”. Food surely is a key player among other factor such as skincare products and skincare treatments but I’ll talk about it in an other post. Let’s dive into the top foods you should incorporate in your diet for keeping a healthy skin!

Avocados

They are high in healthy fats that are extremely good for your body, hair and skin. Getting enough of these fats help keep a plump, moisturized and flexible skin appearance. Avocados also contain compounds that protect your skin from sun damage, so it helps care for signs of aging such as wrinkles. FYI: A 100 gram serving, or 1/2 avocado provides 10% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) for vitamin E and 17% for vitamin C.

Salmon

Also known as ‘super fatty fish’, its richness in omega 3 acids, vitamin E and zinc will do wonders for your skin! It will also help prevent inflammation because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary to keep skin thick, supple and moisturized. FYI: A deficiency in omega-3 fats can cause dry skin so since Winter is coming I suggest you make some Avocado/Salmon toast to keep that glow going through the season!

Greens

Have you seen how those Green Smoothies flourished on social media a while ago? It’s for a good reason and the celebrity best kept secret is no longer. Let me list you a few of the vegetables I add to my smoothies that will help your skin look radiant: kale, spinach, kombucha, apple arugula and broccoli. I don’t put broccoli in my smoothies but I love to eat it as a side dish! FYI: They are packed with vitamins that promote collagen production!

Blueberries

As you know and probably noticed I love my blueberries, they are delicious but I’ve also learned about their anti-oxydant properties years ago. That means they have anti-aging benefits but they also help brighten up dull or sun-damaged skin. FYI: Blueberries have more antioxidants than green tea and are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E. 

That’s it for today, see you next Saturday for a new post!
