We have no doubt you’re already slaying your skincare routine– but we’re here to give you an insider tip: there are some foods you can eat to give your skin the extra pump of brightness it needs.

You’ve probably heard that what we put in our bodies directly affects how our skin looks and behaves. Therefore, you can imagine that eating sugar, processed foods, and drinking alcohol will negatively affect your complexion, unlike, superfoods that are nutrient-dense that can bring many benefits to your skin.

First, let’s start with the basics.

Stay hydrated:

Hydration on the inside and out is key for your skin health. Putting on serums, moisturizers and sprays needs to be complemented with good hydration. This helps to flush out toxins that cause inflammation and redness.

Cut out sugar:

Eating too much sugar may cause a surge in insulin, which could trigger your skin to produce extra oil, thus clogging your pores and causing acne. Also, it quickens the loss of collagen and elastin, causing fine lines, sagging skin and wrinkles. So, try to cut back by avoiding processed foods and sugar additives, especially high fructose corn syrup.  

Now, let’s go in detail… here are our favorite foods for vibrant, balanced skin:

 Foods rich in fatty acids:

Try to include more avocado, nuts, seeds, and ‘fatty’ fishes in your diet. These contain fatty acids that are essential for aiding the skins firmness and lubrication from inside. They also are rich sources of omega-3 and omega-6 which are important for maintaining overall skin health. Omega-3 especially can help lower inflammation, redness, and acne and may help protect the skin from harmful UV rays. The lack of these can cause dry and dull skin.               

Foods rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E:

Some examples are berries, green tea, and dark chocolate. They have antioxidants that fight against free radicals that could damage the skin, causing rapid aging. They also improve the roughness, thickness, and elasticity of their skin. Additionally, they help maintain moisture under the skin and to be less sensitive to sunburns. Vitamin E is also an important antioxidant that helps protect your skin from oxidative damage. It aids in brighter, dewy-looking complexions and protects you from inflammation. 

Foods rich in vitamins A, C, and Zinc:

Vitamins are essential for the overall functioning of the skin. For instance, Vitamin C helps create collagen, which is the main structural protein that keeps your skin strong, firm, and healthy. How can you spot a deficiency of vitamin C? You’ll start noticing your skin is dry, rough, and scaly. Some foods rich in Vitamin C, are bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, and citric fruits.   Nuts and seeds, especially sunflower seeds, are good sources of Zinc which is essential for your skin to function properly as a barrier. It’s also necessary for healing wounds and combating both bacteria and inflammation.   Moreover, plants, in general, are a good source of beta carotene which your body converts into Vitamin A. Beta carotene helps keep your skin healthy by acting as a natural sunblock. Some examples are vegetables such as carrots, spinach, broccoli, and sweet potatoes.

Quick reminder: A healthy outside  starts from the inside
