AMAZING FOODS FOR GLOWING SKIN

Your skin is not only your biggest organ, it’s also your most visible one. In other words, everyone can see it. As such, when your skin has an amazing, healthy glow, you naturally feel confident enough to show it off to people. When it is peppered with blemishes, on the other hand, you feel a lot less confident.

Good skin, therefore, equals more confidence.

The good news is that you don’t have to spend lots of money to give your skin its radiant glow back. You certainly don’t need to have cosmetic surgery! Moreover, you don’t even need to spend lots of money on over-the-counter beauty products.

You really are what you eat. To treat acne, reduce the signs of ageing, ward off wrinkles and battle cellulite, you just need to eat better. Let’s take a look at 10 amazing foods for glowing skin.

  • Tomatoes

For Beauty and Tips, tomatoes are a super food and are definitely part of fabulous foods for glowing skin. We love this red fruit that’s as luscious as a pair of lips. Why? Because it does amazing things for your skin.

For one thing, tomatoes contain a phytochemical called lycopene, which boosts the production of collagen in your body. Collagen is an important protein that gives your skin its youthful, taut structure. It also helps you to fend off attack from nasty UV rays that are trying to penetrate your skin with pro-ageing free radicals.

  • Carrots

Another one of amazing foods for glowing skin are carrots. You might have noticed a bit of a trend with these first two. Like tomatoes, carrots are a brilliant colour. While tomatoes are a deep red, carrots are a vibrant orange. And it’s essentially that orangeness that’s good for your skin.

The reason a carrot is so orange is that – like sweet potato and squash – it’s rich in beta-carotene. As well as being good for your eyes (yes, carrots really can help you see better in the dark), beta-carotene is good for your skin. It stops your skin’s outer layer from preventing too many cells.

  • Turmeric

Again, like tomatoes and carrots, turmeric is easily noticeable, thanks to its eye-catching colour, and it’s also one of great foods for glowing skin.

This spice has been used in Indian dishes for centuries, often medicinally. Sure, it adds a bit of fizz to meals. But it also reduces pain and protects us against certain cancers.

It also looks after your skin. Rich in a powerful antioxidant called curcumin, turmeric thus has anti-inflammatory properties that can prevent free radicals from running riot in your skin.

Turmeric looks after your skin in other ways, too. It can brighten up dark blotches, and help to heal scars that just don’t seem to want to go away.

  • Pumpkin

In fact, your pumpkin face mask – rich in skin-loving minerals, vitamins and antioxidants – could even double up as your scary mask this year if you get it right.

  • Pumpkin Seeds

Not too keen on pumpkin? Can’t be bothered with the hassle of preparing pumpkin? Then try pumpkin seeds, because they definitely deserve to be included in our list of foods for glowing skin.

Pumpkin seeds are stuffed with omega 3’s, vitamins K and A, as well as zinc.

In other words, they work wonders for your skin.

  • Spinach

Spinach may have given Popeye unbelievable strength, but what he didn’t seem to want to acknowledge was that spinach gave him unbelievable skin tone, too.

Like carrots, spinach contains beta carotene, which slows down the ageing process.

  • Salmon

Another one of fabulous foods for glowing skin is salmon. This famous pink fish is easily one of the healthiest you can eat. Thanks to its omega-3’s content, it’s good for your brain. And thanks to its DMAE content, it’s also good for your skin.

  • Avocado

Avocado sales have rocketed by 184% since 2013. Everyone seems to be eating them right now. And with good reason, avocados are one of the best foods for glowing skin.

We might not all be aware of it, but avocados are very good for our skin. Rich in key antioxidants such as beta carotene and lutein, avocados help to hydrate and soften your skin.

  • Garlic

Dieticians all around the world are all in agreement that we should be eating more garlic. In fact, it’s recommended that we eat garlic at least once a day.

If that sounds like too much, you should at least try to eat it a few time a week. This is became garlic can prevent pesky breakouts, keeping your skin clean and clear.

  • Strawberries

Okay, strawberries aren’t to everyones taste. But these berries that are bursting with flavour, life and refreshment should be added to your diet right now if you happen to like them. They boost your skin’s production of collage, and can reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
