Eat a Well-Balanced Diet

Beautiful skin starts with nourishing your body within! There is no question that a well-balanced diet will improve your overall health, even your skin! Eating your fruits and veggies every day provides you with powerful antioxidants that help protect your skin from cellular damage caused by free radicals. Other healthy foods, such as fish and nuts, will provide you with nutrients that are essential for your skin. Eating the correct balance of nutrients will help keep your skin nourished.

Getting your daily dose of vitamin C is helpful to have radiant skin and to help blemishes heal. This vitamin also plays a critical role in producing collagen, keeping your skin plump and supported. Many fruits like oranges, blueberries, and strawberries are packed with vitamin C! Omega-3 fatty acids, found in oily and fatty fish like salmon, tuna, and trout, are very effective for the health of your skin by assisting in reducing inflammation and skin damage. These fish are also rich in protein, which boosts the formation of collagen and elastin, improving the flexibility and strength of your skin. This makes your skin glow and delays the onset of age and wrinkles. Vitamin E helps with preventing cellular damage and aging! Good sources of vitamin E include almonds, avocados, hazelnuts, pine nuts, sunflower seed oil, and pumpkin seed oil. Get “crackin” with your vitamin E for youthful, healthy skin!

Avoid high-glycemic foods, processed foods, and dairy products to improve skin health and prevent premature aging. Stick to whole grains instead of processed ones for the health of your skin. Many fast food items are fried in oils that irritate your skin and circulate throughout your body. Due to its high fat, calorie, and refined carbohydrate content, fast food can also cause blemishes. You may also want to avoid milk and dairy products for healthy skin. Your insulin levels may rise if you consume cow’s milk, and some types may include growth hormones that are bad for your skin. Overall, avoiding high-glycemic foods, processed foods, and dairy products is best to help your skin glow!
