7 foods to enjoy for glowing skin

foods-for-glowing-skin

When it comes to glowing skin, the foundation is nourishing yourself with healthy food. Beauty really does begin on the inside! Here is my top list of some of the best beauty foods for glowing skin:

1. Blueberries

As one of the richest sources of antioxidants, blueberries counteract premature ageing and encourage glowing skin. They also taste divine!

2. Oily fish (salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines, etc.)

Oily fish is a potent source of the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA. While inflammation is essential to keeping us alive, it can also wreak havoc on our skin and is a major contributor to premature aging. Flaxseeds (linseeds) are also a great source of EPA, which the body can convert to DHA. I encourage you to eat what feels nourishing to you. Just try to incorporate some omega-3-rich foods.

3. Kiwi fruit

Kiwi fruit is one of the richest sources of vitamin C. Per gram the kiwi fruit has more vitamin C than the notorious orange. Vitamin C stimulates collagen production, which helps keep the skin firm and slows down the formation of wrinkles.

4. Lemons

Lemons are another great source of vitamin C. They also aid digestion. Good digestion and a healthy gut are essential for glowing skin.

5. Oats

Oats are an absolute staple in my house. They are a great source of dietary fibre, which helps promote a healthy gut and digestion. They are also a good source of silica. Silica is known by some as the greatest beauty mineral. It supports healthy connective tissue. Connective tissue forms a framework beneath the skin that influences its appearance and function. Other examples of connective tissue include bone, cartilage and blood.

6. Green leafy vegetables

Green leafy vegetables are an essential beauty food for so many reasons! They provide a wide array of nutrients and antioxidants that support glowing skin.

7. Avocado

Avocado is a dense source of vitamin E. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect our cell membranes (the outermost layer or barrier of our cells) and therefore, helps smooth the texture of our skin and reduce wrinkles. Avocados are also good for dry skin and brittle hair and nails.

Hopefully this list has inspired you with some great food choices for glowing skin!
