Have you ever wondered what foods can give us the best chance of having great skin? Below, are some awesome skin foods that will support your skin health, give you a healthier glow and nourish you from the inside out.
SALMON – Wild caught is always best, although there are select farms out there who do have good farming practices, but you need to do your research first. Salmon is full of omega fatty acids and it has huge anti-inflammatory compounds. Steer clear drenching it in fatty sauce and just stick to sea salt, pepper and lemon juice.
PUMPKIN SEEDS – These babies are packed with Zinc, which is necessary for cell renewal and protecting your precious cell membranes.
BLUEBERRIES – One of the anti-oxidant leaders, these berries will protect us from free radicals and help slow signs of aging. Just be sure they’re organic!
SPINACH – One of my personal faves, these greens also pack a powerful anti-oxidant punch and protect our bodies and skin from free radicals (which cause premature aging and come from everywhere….cars, environment, stress). I put raw, organic spinach in my daily smoothies and I usually eat it for lunch in my salad too. I can’t get enough!
LEMON – Lemons are gentle detoxifier’s and work at aiding your blood and liver to naturally cleanse themselves. I have a warm cup of water with lemon every single morning and I usually refill it a few times throughout the day. It helps to alkalize the body as well.
Every area of our face is divided into sections and linked to a certain system or organ in our body. So if we’re having trouble with digestion or hormones or stress, it will show up on our faces as acne. It’s important to strive to feed ourselves the most fresh, organic and natural foods that we can. By decreasing fried foods, sugar, dairy and processed and packaged foods, our skin will start to repair itself and the transformation will shock you!
