10 Foods to Eat for Clear, Glowing Skin!
Your skin is an incredibly important, and the largest organ of the body. So looking after it is important, and the key to looking younger. But here at Organica we look at the most natural way of doing things, and believe that answer is found in mother nature, not a laboratory. And the same goes for what you put into your body, because the best place to start is on the inside…
And this is why we’ve come up with the 10 foods you can eat to clear up your skin and get that glow from the inside.
Any red or purple fruits, particularly berries, are insanely high in antioxidants: key for flushing toxins from your body and keeping your skin clear and healthy. Added to breakfast cereals or eaten as a snack, they are a sweet way to help your complexion.
Packed with protein and amino acids to promote skin cell growth, eggs are important for encouraging vitamin D and iron absorption in the skin. They also help keep your complexion radiant by boosting oxygen delivery to skin cells.
All red fruit and vegetables contain lycopene, which helps break down free-radicals and fights sun damage. Tomatoes are particularly beneficial for those with pigmentation issues, or who are very sensitive to sun damage.
4. Kale and Leafy Greens
More nutritious than broccoli and cabbage, kale is high in beta-carotene which helps those with acne-prone skin. It also contains tons of collagen-boosting vitamin C.
5. Chia Seeds
Rich in omega-3, they can help your skin cells lock-in and retain moisture, keeping it smooth and supple. A good dose of vitamin E can also help diminish redness and inflammation.
This vibrant root is a distant cousin of ginger, and is extremely high in antioxidants – vital for healthy skin! There are also many anti-inflammatory properties in turmeric, helping to soothe flare-ups and sensitive skin issues.
7. Whole Grains
Unless you’re sensitive to gluten/wheat, eating whole grains is imperative for overall health, but especially your skin! A great source of Vitamin B, Magnesium and Zinc, they help to strengthen your skin’s barrier to protect it from external damage and pollution. They also encourage elasticity in the skin, preventing fine lines and wrinkles.
8. Oily Fish
Packed with essential fatty acids, fish contain a high dose of omega-3 and omega-6, which are essential in preventing clogged pores. Fish also contain restorative proteins which help repair any damaged skin cells.
9. Nuts & Seeds
Chick-full of minerals, protein and essential fatty acids, nuts and seeds are known to help reduce inflammation on skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The vitamin E also helps repair and damaged skin.
From the cocoa fruit, the powder is extremely high in antioxidants which are great for your skin! Easy to add to smoothies and hot drinks for that extra hit of skin-loving minerals.
As much as we can look after our skin from the outside, what we eat has a massive impact on it, too. So looking after yourself from the inside out will really help create a naturally better you. By having a balanced diet, exercising regularly and keeping these 10 foods in mind, you’re on the way to clear and glowing skin.
