By  | 

They say beauty shines from the inside out, and this couldn’t be more true. Post 21, I’ve become more conscious about everything I put in my body. That’s not to say you shouldn’t have any fun, but just being aware can help you make informed decisions.

We all know that healthy eating can lead to weight loss and a fit body. This, in turn, can also lead to better hair and skin. But today, we’re concentrating, in particular, on glowing skin.

Here are 6 foods that can help you get on the right track towards great skin. Are any of these a part of your daily diet? Let us know in the comments below!

1. Coconuts

Coconut water acts as a natural electrolyte. It replenishes your body with the required salts and sugars, hydrating your skin in the process. Coconut oil is one of the best fats you can provide your body with. It has a high smoke point when cooking, keeping all your food healthy. Its vitamins and minerals coat your skin and hair with plenty of nutrients.

2. Avocados

Avocados give you another required dose of healthy fats. Avocados have plenty of Vitamin A, D, and E, as well as omega-9 fatty acids. When consumed regularly, they can give you smooth and flawless skin. Avocado has all the nutrients your skin needs to regenerate.

3. Walnuts

Once again, walnuts have fats that can protect and rebuild your body and your skin. They’re rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which make them even better for vegetarians who don’t consume fish. While omega-3 and 6 supplements are available in the market, there’s nothing like naturally occurring nutrients to replenish your skin.

4. Tomato

Tomatoes have a high antioxidant content. They’re basically natural sun protectors, preventing free radicals and UV rays from destroying your skin, therefore, giving you young and healthy skin.

5. Collard Greens/Kale

Leafy green veggies contain antioxidants that fight toxins and are packed with Vitamin C. Both of these are vital ingredients for good skincare. Just applying them on the surface won’t do. Consuming them can protect and rebuild skin from within.

Here’s another vegetable that contains a whole lot of Vitamin C. Vitamin C boosts collagen production, which can pretty much repair all your skincare woes. Their antioxidants will neutralise damage from free radicals too. Get younger-looking skin with a healthy dose of bell peppers!
