From fighting acne to anti-aging routines, skin care is SO important – but it’s not all about what goes on your skin that counts! With spring upon us and warmer weather ahead, there is so much to look forward to…including food! They say you are what you eat, right?? I’m here to share skin-friendly foods to eat right now for a glowing, healthy complexion!
BERRIES & CITRUS
Bring on the Vitamin C! Loading up on these colorful fruits is a perfect way to get gorgeous, radiant skin! Vitamin C is essential to repairing and rebuilding skin cells – so antioxidant-packed snacks like raspberries, lemons, oranges, and grapefruits will save your skin. Also find this amazing vitamin in a serum or cream for extra vibrant skin!
WATERMELON & CUCUMBER
Winter is out the door…kick up your hydration for spring and summer with these two super fruits. You can literally eat your water: these refreshing fruits are made up of over 90% water! Reach for a slice of these crisp and cool treats to rehydrate your skin and leave it looking (and feeling) fabulous.
#SkinTip: Cucumber slices are PERFECT for keeping under-eye puffiness at bay! And use a gelee for even more relief!
AVOCADO & SALMON
You’ve definitely heard of healthy fats – but what can they do for your skin? More radiant skin and a healthier complexion can be found in the Omega-9 and Omega-3 fatty acids from avocado and salmon. Say hello to plumper, tighter skin! Raise your hand if you’re up for some guac and seafood!
DARK CHOCOLATE & ALMONDS
That’s right…even these delicious treats are FULL of antioxidants! The flavonols in dark chocolate and the vitamin E in almonds help protect your skin and leave it glowing. Reach for a few pieces of these snacks guilt-free (in moderation, of course)!
SPINACH & TOMATOES
There’s nothing like a fresh and delicious salad this time of year! Thanks to vitamins A, C, and K, spinach and tomatoes are known to minimize acne and prevent premature aging. I know what I’m having for dinner tonight! (Bonus: tomatoes also contain SPF!)
#SkinTip: Also use a pore-minimizing and skin-firming masque to keep skin youthful and acne-free!
