Tips for a Glowing and Healthy Skin

A lot of money is being spent on purchasing cosmetics and products that promise to make you feel better. However, nutritionists keep on preaching that you are what you eat. Some experts in the field advise that to get glowing skin and a clear complexion you need to incorporate some great foods in your diet…

Salmon Dish

1. Oily Fish Like salmon or tuna
Eating fish provides your body with biotin, a B vitamin that produces fatty acids and metabolizes amino acids (the building blocks of protein). On the other hand a deficiency of biotin can cause scaly skin.

2. Chia seeds
Omega-3 fatty acids such as oily fish, chia seeds and walnuts help maintain cell membranes by protecting the skin and providing it with moisture.

3. Sweet potatoes
Filling your meals with colorful fruits and vegetables provides your body with lots of water, and thus keep your skin and other cells adequately hydrated. In fact a diet rich in vitamin A, like sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach has proven to enhance skin color and appearance by increasing its yellowness and redness.

4. Almonds
Almonds are rich in vitamin E and thus can also help you maintain healthy skin.

5. Sunflower seeds
These little seeds provide an excellent source of vitamin E and help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals in the environment and in the body.

6. Complex carbohydrates
Processed foods such as pasta, white rice and also white flour can increase inflammation and cause acne flair-ups. In your daily diet replace pasta, white bread and white rice with complex carbohydrates such as barley, quinoa and brown rice. These food types are all lower on the glycemic index.

7. Orange juice
Although juices are often thought of as high in sugar content and with no main benefit to one’s health, orange juice provides fluids to keep you hydrated and Vitamin C, which works as an antioxidant to protect skin and other cells from damage caused by free radicals in the environment and in the body. Vitamin C also helps create collagen, the body’s main structural protein.

Eating some of these foods will help you look and feel better.
