“You are what you eat” is a classic but incredibly true motto, a motto we should all live by. Good skin can (unfortunately) be quite difficult to achieve, especially nowadays when we keep throwing too many beauty products, crazy diet pills, and weight loss plans at us. What the media / magazines / YouTube videos / nutritionists seem not to have mentioned is that great skin starts with taking care of it from the inside out. We know it sounds clichéd, but it’s the truth. So if you eat the right balance of foods, your skin will get the essential nutrients it needs and it will stay smooth, plump, and flawless.
Treat your taste buds and your skin to something delicious, healthy and of course sweet like strawberries! In addition to being a great source of vitamin C, this red fruit has a huge impact on fighting wrinkles and dry skin. Who would say The more vitamin C you include in your diet, the faster you will see positive results on your skin. Whether it’s a smoothie, oatmeal, topping for your ice cream, or a midnight snack, eating strawberries or any other source of vitamin C can really heal blemishes and get glowing skin.
If you haven’t lived under a rock (jk, but really), you’ve probably heard of this ‘new’ super healthy leafy green vegetable called kale. While it seems strange that a vegetable should be “fashionable”, we have to admit that there is a good reason for this anger. Kale is full of zeaxanthin and lutein. What do you say? Zeaxanthin and lutein are super antioxidants that keep your skin from doing things you REALLY don’t want too much of. We leave this to you to ponder: A single cup of kale provides you with 130% of your vitamins A and C. Our suggestion is that this is a trend that you should be part of.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, name the red grape of your choice and order a glass of wine. Adding red wine to your diet can be very beneficial for your skin. Thanks to antioxidants, red wine (red grapes) transforms a dull complexion into its original shine. Antioxidants fight free radicals that destroy skin cells and make aging even more difficult than before. In addition to the benefits, of course we ask that you drink responsibly and do research before wine and dinner. For your health!
