Superfoods for glowing Skin

Your skin is your body’s largest organ, so it only makes sense that you feed it right. In addition to medical grade skincare and treatments, what you eat and drink affects the appearance and feel of your ever-changing skin. Protect it with the right nutrients by adding these quite simple and common superfoods to your routine!

The thing that stands out the most in these foods are the vitamins and minerals they provide. The benefits from these amazing foods will not only help your skin but all systems in your body. Gut health has a direct link to skin health so prioritize your diet and hydration as much as you do your morning and evening skincare routines!

Citrus, Strawberries + Peppers

Vitamin C is a major factor in collagen production which gives skin “bounce back” elasticity and helps heal wounds. These summer foods will have you eating the rainbow and fuelling your whole body well. You can never go wrong with fruit salad and stir fry!

Sweet Potatoes, Carrots + Spinach

Vitamin A + beta carotene helps build cells and protects from harmful environment factors. Root vegetables will be coming in season soon and can be thrown in the air fryer for a quick veg dish. Spinach is always my favorites for salads and in smoothies. 

Salmon, Walnuts + Flaxseed

Omega-3s are essential fats that the body can’t make that keep cell membranes strong and hold moisture. Healthy fats are the best and make any meal so filling. Add those walnuts to your morning yogurt or toss them in a stir fry or salad for some extra crunch. Salmon can be done so many ways, keep it simple with some seasoning and lemon. 

Tea + Water

Polyphenols + water because hydration IS KEY for good skin health! Tea is rich in antioxidants that reduce inflammation. Veggies can also have a high water content such as cucumbers and celery. 

Tomato, Watermelon + Guava

Lycopene is an antioxidant with skin protecting properties. Antioxidants help to fight free radicals in the body that can cause all sorts of diseases. Tomato sauces and sun-dried tomatoes are especially high in lycopenes.
