5 Beauty Foods for Healthier, Brighter Skin

2 Comments

Full of vitamins, minerals, and phyto-nutrients, dark, leafy greens like kale, spinach, Swiss chard, and collard greens are like natural detoxifiers. They pull toxins from your body while adding key nutrients to brighten skin, improve acne, and give you an overall greater radiance. Try adding these to your green smoothie in the morning and it’s easy to have greens at every meal.

Avocado

The healthy fats in avocado keep your skin moisturized and smooth. The Vitamin E in avocado contains powerful antioxidants that can prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Try this avocado mask for smoother, healthier looking skin.

Strawberries

Strawberries are loaded with Vitamin C, which is highly-effective at repairing damaged cells. You might have noticed many beauty creams that contain Vitamin C, but your body absorbs more when you eat foods rich in Vitamin C. Strawberries are great for repairing sun and weather-damaged skin.

Sweet Potatoes

Full of beta-carotene, sweet potatoes (and carrots) can help to give your skin a healthy glow with improved skin tone.

Blueberries

These antioxidant rich berries keep your skin looking young by healing free-radical damage caused by environmental toxins, lack of sleep, and the natural aging process. Blueberries are anti-aging, cancer-fighting, and a powerful superfood.
