Health radiates from within. And no matter how much your face cream costs, it’s not going to make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin UNLESS you support your skin from the inside out with a healthy diet as well. So, in addition to loading up your SkinStore.com shopping bag with delightful goodies, fill up your grocery cart with delicious foodies for healthy, radiant skin.
Salmon – The renowned Dr.Perricone loves his wild Alaskan salmon, and he knows a thing or two about skincare, and we agree that salmon should be a staple in your menu. The Omega-3 content in this delicious fish has immense anti-inflammatory benefits and is loaded with antioxidants.
Walnuts – Potent in protective antioxidants and also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, a handful of walnuts per day will keep your skin smooth and toned for years to come.
Probiotic rich foods – Try yogurt, kefir or kombucha. While milk and other dairy products may make you feel bloated and queasy and have been touted to cause breakouts, probiotic-rich dairy foods like yogurt are loaded with healthy little bacteria that do a great deal for your skin without icky side-effects. Try natural fruit juice, like pomegranate mixed into kefir, or walnuts in your yogurt for a satisfying, healthy snack. Kombucha is a fermented tea that’s rich in antioxidants and probiotics, and is a refreshing effervescent drink that’s great anytime.
Green tea – Sip on green tea to reap the benefits of polyphenols and antioxidants that ward off aging by preventing oxidative stress in your cells. Green tea is delicious in the winter when served hot, and yummy when iced in the summer. Adding lemon to your green tea not only improves the taste but also boosts the tea’s potency.
Veggies, fruities, leafies – Vegetables are great for your overall health and your skin’s health as well. Sweet potatoes are chockfull of beta-carotene, spinach is loaded with lutein, and tomatoes are full of lycopene. Enjoy citrus-rich fruits. Rich in super-antioxidant vitamin C, citrus not only wards off colds but also helps to boost your skin’s glow. Eat oranges, kiwi fruits, and add lemon to your water and tea.
Chocolate – Cocoa-rich chocolate (try 60% cocoa or more) is full of antioxidants and promotes circulation. Who knew that something so delicious could be so good for you!?
