Best Foods To Eat For Clear Skin

March 31, 2017

Using good, clean skin care products goes a long way to give you healthy skin. But, you have to take care of yourself in other ways if you want your face to glow. In addition to using pure products like paraben-free skin care, you should be eating healthy foods to keep your skin in top shape. What are the best foods for healthy skin? They’re nutrient-rich and hydrating plant-based foods that also offer antioxidant benefits. And, they’re whole foods with minimal processing.

For radiate beauty, it all starts from within. And healthy plant-based foods set the stage for optimal skin wellness.

Citrus Fruits, Strawberries, Broccoli and Red Peppers

To get smooth-textured skin, add citrus fruits, strawberries, broccoli, and red peppers to your diet. These foods contain loads of Vitamin C, which is a vitamin that’s essential for proper collagen production and formation. Collagen is what supports the skin’s structure, and a supportive skin layer underneath the epidermis (top layer) prevents and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.

Almonds and Sunflower Seeds

Almonds and sunflower seeds are packed with Vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant and protects the skin from free-radical damage due to sun exposure. These foods are like an internal sunscreen, although they must work with a topical sunscreen to protect in cases of prolonged sun exposure. Eat these nuts and seeds to give your skin a barrier from UV rays and environmental pollution. And, add almonds and sunflower seeds to your diet to keep skin cells strong and hydrated.

Dark Orange and Red Vegetables, and Dark Leafy Greens

Beta-carotene, a carotenoid found in dark orange and red vegetables like sweet potatoes and carrots, is what gives these foods their pigments and it promotes a fresh complexion. It’s a powerful antioxidant that converts to Vitamin A when consumed, and Vitamin A regulates skin cell production and turnover. Skin regeneration helps to keep the face smooth and youthful looking. Dark leafy greens, such as kale and spinach, are also ideal beta-carotene sources.

Aim for consuming at least 1 cup of each of these foods a day. You can blend them into smoothies, make a delicious salad with them, or eat them raw or in a stir fry. And, while you’re eating healthy, you should stick with your pure and clean beauty products like our antioxidant-rich and hydrating Vitamin C serum.
