You Are What You Eat… and so is Your Skin

When it comes to improving your skin, everybody talks about serums, cleansers, packs, so on and so forth.  We worry so much about the outer solutions… but what about what goes on inside you?

Experts agree that what you eat has a great effect on your skin.  When it comes to skincare, your diet is just as important as the products you use.  Here are some of our favorite foods to include in our diet that you can benefit from, too!

Blueberry
Blueberries are rich in fiber, vitamin A and C, and contain antioxidants.  They can reduce wrinkles and eliminate dark spots to give you youthful looking skin.   They’re also good at counteracting hormonal conditions to prevent pimples and breakouts.

 

Salmon
Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which nourish the skin by reducing the body’s production of inflammatory substances.  It decreases clogged pores and reduces fine lines and wrinkles for more radiant and supple skin.

 

Green tea
Also available in a facial pack form, green tea is known to flush out toxins to heal blemishes and scars and reduce inflammation.  The antioxidants and tannins in green tea also treat puffy eyes and dark circles as they shrink the blood vessels around the eyes.  They also improve skin elasticity.

 

Walnut
Walnuts contain omega-3 fatty acids that help to lock in moisture and nutrients, bringing out a glow ini your skin.  Vitamin B is a stress manager that lowers your stress level, naturally resulting in better skin.  Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant that accelerates healing, controlling the aging process.

 

Water
Here’s a classic one: water!  Other than using moisturizer to lock in the moisture, you can also help your skin by drinking lots of water.  It will decrease the concentration of oil in your skin to fend off breakouts.  While dry skin darkens complexion and promotes wrinkles, hydration can keep the skin plump and free of signs of aging.
