Eat Your Way to Beautiful Skin with These 5 Foods

Looking for ways to achieve that Instagram-worthy skin glow? If you’re using topical beauty products, that’s good, but healthy and supple skin must come from within first. This means choosing nutritious foods over junk food. Your skin can’t look its best when you’re not getting all the nutrients your body needs. Take your skincare routine to the next level with the 5 superfoods below.

1. Avocados

If you suffer from dry skin, then having avocado toast can help. Avocados are rich in many nutrients, including healthy fats. Healthy fats help your skin stay hydrated and can prevent acne.

2. Salmon

Are you a little fishy about the redness on your skin? Then it’s time to eat more salmon. Whether canned or frozen, salmon is rich in zinc, a mineral that reduces redness. Eat more salmon by making a salmon salad sandwich or serving salmon with a baked sweet potato. Speaking of sweet potatoes …

3. Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes have to be the best-tasting vegetable out there. Aside from their flavor, they’re also a great source of vitamin A, which can help with oily skin. Try making sweet potato hash browns and serving with scrambled eggs for a nutritious kickstart to your day.

4. Spinach

The bright green leafy veggie is loaded with vitamin C, a must for anyone with age spots. Sneak in some spinach by adding it to salads, sandwiches, or quiches.

5. Blueberries

Blueberries are chock full of vitamin K, meaning that blueberries can help reduce undereye dark circles and brighten up your skin more. Toss in blueberries in your next smoothie, or simply have them as a snack.

Keeping Your Skin Bright, Inside and Out

The best skincare routine is one that not only includes topical beauty products like facial scrubs and moisturizers but also includes nourishing your skin from the inside.
