Investing in the latest celebrity endorsed beauty secret in pursuit of the promise of flawless skin is something we have all fallen victim to. Instead of bankrolling an endless collection of moisturisers, toners and anti-ageing creams; get out of your body what you put in to it, by making some healthy eating changes. With the right food choices capable of giving you the healthy glow you have been longing for, swap sugary snacks for leafy greens and you will be amazed at the changes you see in your complexion, just one of the many benefits of healthy eating.
Essential for a healthy functioning body, omega 3, helps nutrients to be absorbed during digestion and waste toxins to be removed, ultimately giving us more healthy looking skin. Rich in omega 3 oily fish, such as salmon, act as a natural detox, the perfect inclusion for any diet on a detox holiday.
Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, blueberries are a fantastic boost for your skin. Whilst its source of vitamin C produces collagen, which helps the growth of cells and gives skin its firmness, its powerful antioxidants help with dry skin and wrinkles. The ideal dietary addition for a healthy anti-ageing holiday, blueberries are fantastic for rejuvenating your skin.
3. Leafy Vegetables
Packed with antioxidants leafy greens such as kale, broccoli and spinach are rapidly growing in popularity, thanks to their diverse health benefits, including healthier skin and slimming superfood qualities. Full of vitamin A, which aids the turnover of skin cells, these green veggies see that your skin is renewed more quickly, leaving you fresh faced for everyone to see.
Whilst garlic may not leave you with the freshest smelling breath, it does have its benefits. Full of Vitamin B6 and a chemical called allicin, this reacts with the blood and when digested kills off any viruses in the body, including skin conditions.
5. Nuts and Seeds
A powerful antioxidant, most nuts and seeds are full of vitamin E; particularly almonds, brazil nuts, pine nuts, hazel nuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Best of them all are flax seeds; like salmon, they contain omega 3 fatty acids and, like vegetables, lots of magnesium which is important for skin repair.
