Food and Beauty

Water: It’s crucial to achieving a flawless surface! It allows your organs to function more efficiently, as well as remove toxins and waste much faster. Drinking 8 glasses of water per day will get your skin looking plumper (note: the skin and not the face), clearer, and more hydrated!

Essential Fatty Acids: Although foods with the name “fatty” may not sound like they are good for you, they contain Omega-3 and 6, which help fight inflammation and sunburn—two major causes of premature aging. They also help your skin cells repair their natural barrier and increase cell production. Omega-3 and 6 are found in foods such as salmon, trout, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and flax seed.

Greens: Foods like spinach, kale, broccoli, and romaine all contain vitamins B, E, and C, as well as antioxidants that help fight off free radicals!

Green Tea: This may be the easiest way to ease into a healthier diet. Green tea is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps the overall health and appearance of your skin. It also contains polyphenols that strengthen and protect the cell membrane, and help reduce the risk of cancer.

Fruits for Beauty: Fruits like bananas and plums are not only high in antioxidants but they’re proven to repair damage to the skin’s cell membranes. So whether you suffer from acne, sun damage, or redness, eating a moderate amount of berries high in antioxidants will help repair your skin and fight off future damage. Watch out for strawberries and orange juice; they are very high in natural sugar and acid. They give me really bad breakouts.

Potato, Tomato: Eating foods that are red and orange in color, such as sweet potato, tomato, and carrots, boosts your intake of beta-carotene and vitamin C. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A which helps overall hydration, collagen production, and strengthening of skin cells. Besides acne and scarring, the production of collagen is important to fight the aging process as well!
