Foods that Improve Your Skin Health

What you eat can affect your beautiful skin no matter what your age. One thing we know for sure: What you eat can have a direct impact on how you look. If you’re not specifically chowing down on superfoods for glowing skin and instead are constantly noshing on processed foods or those high in sugar and fat and devoid of fiber, it can show up in the form of dull skin, perhaps along with other issues like acne, dryness, oiliness, or dark under-eye circles.

“A diet focused on high-quality lean proteins, fiber, healthy oils, raw fruits and vegetables, and spices is best for supporting healthy skin,” Paula Simpson, a leading innovator and ambassador for the Healthy Aging and Nutricosmetics sectors, has built a solid reputation on holistic skincare.  “These foods tend to contain high-quality amino acids, the building blocks for firm skin, plus anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich ingredients that promote optimal skin metabolism and defense against environmental stressors.”

One of those stressors is free-radical damage, “…which can weaken your skin’s immunity and break down its metabolic functions,” says Simpson. This causes skin to eventually become uneven, and it loses that effervescent glow we’re always seeking. “It can also trigger inflammatory reactions that destroy collagen, resulting in thin, wrinkled, and blotchy skin,” she continued.

The foods that will help you the most include fruits and vegetables abundant in vitamins A and C, like red, yellow and orange peppers, carrots, broccoli, mandarins, watermelon and berries; and healthy fats like avocado and olive oil, salmon, nuts and seeds.Super Foods for Glowing Skin, LotusRain Naturopathic Clinic

Pro Tip: As we head into fall, a time of year we’re likely to crave comforting stews and soups made with tomato sauces, feel good about eating them because tomatoes are one of the best sources of lycopene, an anti-aging antioxidant that may also help reduce risk of heart disease and cancer. They’re also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K!
