Today we’re outlining the things you can do to help get the appearance of the skin you’ve been coveting. It doesn’t involve crazy routines like dry scrubs, going for acupuncture or even using a face mask three times a week. No, it is just eating the right foods and using the right creams. Here we go, skin salvation is on its way:
We’re pretty big on the Omegas, as can be seen from our post on salmon, and it’s with reason. These fatty acids are known to help your skin do its thing in a healthy way. They are known as the “healthy fats”. Your skin is made up of lipids, and to help it retain a hydrated look, the use of omega-3s come into play as they feed the lipid layer of your skin. Some sources you can get omega-3s naturally from are:
- Mackerel (highest source ~174% DV per cup cooked)
- Hemp Seeds
- Egg Yolks
So even if you’re leading a Vegan lifestyle, you can still enjoy the benefits of this terrific nutrient to support your skin!**
Vitamin C has been a notable player in skin health for a long time. It’s known to help with the production of collagen in the body.** What’s the best part? You can eat your way to getting Vitamin C in your body. Here’s a few of our favorite natural providers of the stuff:
- Kiwi: 64 mg/serving
- ½ cup Strawberries: 49 mg/serving
- Lemons: 25 mg/medium fruit
- Oranges: 70 mg/medium fruit
