We all want beautiful, radiant skin. Just like a gardener wants his plants to have full and luscious leaves. But sometimes the leaves tend to wilt, wither, brown, and die. So what does the gardener do? She doesn’t try to rub creams and lotions on the leaves in vain, she looks at the roots of the plants, because the leaves are a reflection of the nutrition the roots are getting. Just like our skin is a reflection of the foods we eat. Our digestive system are our roots. Feed it well and your skin will become youthful and radiant. Here are 5 foods we recommend you eat more often that will help your skin become more youthful, radiant, and glowing!
1.) Kiwi. Kiwis are packed full of vitamin C and Vitamin E along with a host of other anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are absolutely essential for keeping your skin looking great because they destroy free-radicals which cause your skin to sag, look old, and wrinkle.
2.) Wild Salmon. Wild caught (not farmed) salmon is packed full of omega fatty acids. Omega fatty acids are essential for keeping your skin glowing. They help keep your joints lubed up, your skin glowing and help your body absorb essential vitamins much faster, like vitamin E, C, and D which are excellent for your skin.
3.) Eggs. Eggs have an abundance of an essential b vitamin nutrient called Choline, which helps make up the fatty portion of the skin cells. It helps to regulate the formation of collagen and elastin, which are the rubbery proteins that help make your skin look smooth and silky. So the more of it you have in your diet, the more of these proteins will be produced, therefore resulting in you having nicer skin!
4.) Tomato. Tomatoes naturally have cooling and astringent properties to them, making them perfect skin foods. They are packed full of Vitamin C and A which help regulate acne, fight oily skin, and help to keep your skin looking radiant. They’re also naturally acidic, which helps to regulate the ph balance of your skin keeping it looking young and great!
5.) Kale. Kale is an obvious choice because it is the most nutrient dense vegetable on the planet. It has a crazy amount of antioxidants which help your skin to look great. It’s packed full of minerals that help your skin maintain a firm smoothness. After a week of eating kale every day, you will notice a significant increase in the quality of your skin.
If you incorporate all of these foods into your diet weekly, if not daily, and remember to stay hydrated, as hydration is a huge factor in keeping your skin nice, you will absolutely see a significant increase in the quality of your skin! Remember to eat healthy and cut out a lot of sugary and processed foods, because your skin will reflect the nutrients it’s getting from your intestines. You are what you eat!
