Good Foods for Skin
Vitamin C-Rich Foods
Vitamin C is good for you every day, even when you’re not fighting off a cold. This vitamin can also help your skin fight off damage from sun exposure, and help boost your skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Oranges, brussel sprouts, and red bell peppers are all rich in Vitamin C, for instance, so adding more into your diet might just show up as radiant skin later on!
Green Tea is one of those skin foods you’ve likely heard about for years and years. We know we have! This Asian drink is packed full of antioxidants that help prevent DNA damage and stop inflammation from creeping into your skin. Try switching out your morning coffee for a cup of this liquid elixir for a month or two, and see if it gives you a more beautiful glow.
Essential Fatty Acids
Foods with essential fatty acids can help keep our skin’s natural oil barrier intact and even stronger, which may prevent blemishes and resolve overly dry skin. Incorporate some essential fatty acids into your diet by eating more walnuts, olive oil, flax seeds, and cold-water fish like salmon.
Adding in more whole foods into your diet might help you absorb more nutrients over the long run. Plus, you’ll be giving your body a break from chemicals and preservatives in modern foods like fast food, fried food, and boxed, processed foods. Don’t feel pressured to cut anything out completely. Our advice is to slowly incorporate some of the amazing foods above and keep track of how they make you feel.
Changing your diet is a great way to improve your skin, though it may take a little while before you see results. If you’re looking for a quick boost of brighter skin, give us a call at (346) 300-FACE to schedule a consultation to learn about some of the amazing treatments we offer.
