Having a healthy diet is essential for healthy clear skin. Okay, maybe you know a girl who eats tons of chocolate and fried food and has the most soft and even skin you have ever seen in real life, because yes, genetics and hormones are also a major contributing factor to bright and clear skin. But that doesn’t mean what you eat can’t help prevent breakouts, redness and dull looking skin. Here are some of the most replenishing ingredients you can add to your diet for healthier looking skin and hair.
Green Tea- The catechins found in green tea are a compound that work in protecting the skin from sun damage and aging. This powerful compound also hydrates the skin and improves the skin’s elasticity.
Avocados- Avocados are one of the most well known sources of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that restores the skin back to its optimal health. Avocados also contain vitamin C, which is one of vitamin E’s most beloved partners, especially when it comes to the health of the body, hair and skin. Vitamin C keeps the skin hydrated and prevents dry and itchy skin.
Wheat Germ oil- When you add a little wheat germ oil to your salads, rice or favorite savory dishes you are also adding vitamin A, vitamin D, B, antioxidants and fatty acids to your now ultra boosted meal. These nutrients help prevent scarring and heal the skin much quicker. If you’re not into eating wheat germ oil you can also find it in powerful replenishing beauty products like Oil Essentials Argan and Wheat Germ one stop beauty solution, great for both skin and hair.
Fresh Fish- And of course, fresh fish is key to a healthy diet and clear healthy looking skin. Mackerel, sardines and anchovies are some of the types of fish most rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which both your skin and hair need to stay hydrated and glowing.
