Did you know that the food you eat makes a HUGE difference in the way your skin glows?
Studies show that a plant-based diet is the best way to clear up your skin and to help you radiate from the inside out.
Here are some of my favorite plant foods that allow your skin to shine!
Healthy Fats. Healthy fats are soothing and nourishing to the skin, and you can use them externally and internally! Coconut oil, for instance, is a healthy source of dietary fat and can also be used for chemical-free, clean skincare. Healthy fats to enjoy also include avocado, nuts and seeds, olives and minor amounts of olive oil.
B Vitamins. Vitamins B2, B3, B5, and B7 all contribute to skin health. They can be found in foods like nuts and seeds, seaweed, rice, split peas, avocado, leafy greens, and broccoli.
Collagen-Boosting Foods. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and a major component of skin, so it’s important to eat foods that support its production.
The building blocks of collagen include plants like avocado, peppers, brussels sprouts, greens, berries, papaya, nuts, and seeds. I’m not a fan of the synthetic, processed collagen products because once you add collagen in a processed source, your body will stop making it on it's own. This means you will continually have to supplement more and more collagen that will give you substandard results. Help your tissues, joints and skin make collagen the natural way!
Skin-Protective Nutrients. Foods rich in Vitamin A, zinc, copper, and selenium help nourish skin on a cellular level. These include nuts and seeds, ginger, legumes, leafy greens, and whole grains.
Water. Chronic dehydration is a common culprit for aging skin. Drinking enough water hydrates tissues on the inside and out, and it also improves circulation, meaning all those great nutrients from the foods above can actually get to where they need to go.
Greens. Green foods are so full of the daily nutrients that your body needs on a daily basis. Plus, greens harness the energy of the sun, allowing you to radiate the suns healing energy through your body. This literally allows you to "glow' from the inside out!
