Natural, Affordable Options for Healthy Skin
February 12, 2020
We all want our skin to look healthy and glowing, but so often that comes with a hefty price tag. But what if you could get beautiful skin without breaking the bank? It CAN be done simply, affordably and without expensive treatments and time-consuming appointments if you follow these tips:
Foods for Healthy Skin
The phrase, “you are what you eat,” certainly applies to your skin, so stock up on these skin-loving foods:
- Fatty fish like salmon, sardines and herring are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, a beneficial essential fatty acid your body doesn’t make on its own.
- Walnuts are not only a great source for fatty acids, but also deliver zinc, vitamin E, antioxidant vitamin C and more to keep your skin staying healthy. Best of all, walnuts taste great.
- Tomatoes are chock-full of lycopene, a terrific protector from UV rays, plus like walnuts, tomatoes provide vitamin C.
- Avocadoes are loaded with vitamin E and other healthy fats good for keeping your skin moisturized and supple. You’ll see avocado or its oil included in many beauty masks, creams and lotions due to its richness and ability to penetrate skin.
- Broccoli contains an enormous array of vitamins, especially important A and C that support collagen production, and vitamin K for healing. Broccoli also includes lutein that works to protect against oxidative damage and combat dryness and wrinkles.
Healthy Skin Vitamins and Minerals
- Vitamin A benefits the upper and lower layers of skin and supports healthy oil glands to keep skin luminous.
- Vitamin C is a remarkable antioxidant to protect skin from free radicals. Low levels can slow down the healing process.
- Vitamin E works to fight aging and wrinkles and complements Vitamin C in strengthening skin at the cellular level.
- Vitamin K combats bruising and circulatory issues causing dark circles and spider veins. It’s also beneficial for stretch marks and scars.
- Selenium fights free radical damage and slows the signs of aging. It’s also involved in thyroid function.
- Zinc, another antioxidant, is important to keep cells stable and plays a role in the healing process. There are huge amounts of zinc in the outer layer of your skin.
