Has your skin been bringing you down? Losing weight is a great way to boost your confidence, but often, if our skin is breaking out or awfully dry, it can leave us feeling deflated. Well, there are a few things you can do to get your skin looking smoother and more supple than ever before. Take a look at the foods you should be eating;
Smashed avo on toast anyone? Avocados are full of vitamins B, C and E, and are a great source of healthy fats that nourish your skin. Avocados help to support collagen structure in your skin and encourage its elasticity by keeping it hydrated.
Green vegetables are high in iron and vitamins B, A, and E which boost your immune system. Green vegetables contain phytochemicals and folates that increase the moisture in your skin to give it that boost of hydration. Be sure to put some kale, spinach, and broccoli into your shopping basket next time you head to the grocery store!
Coconut has natural antibacterial qualities that help reduce acne. Coconut is tasty to eat but can also be used as a product or cream on your skin as a nourishing treatment.
Considered a “power food,” nuts are known for their healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Nuts and nut products are used to promote elasticity and cell regeneration. Eating them raw is the best way to get all those much needed nutrients.
While you’re focusing on incorporating these healthy foods into your diet, it is important that you are drinking at least 2L of water everyday to boost your hydration and treat your skin.
