Feed Your Good Looks with These 12 Foods for Skin Health
Guess what? If you want beautiful skin, the stuff you put in your body probably matters just as much as what you put on it. As Granite Bay skincare professionals who spend our days helping patients find the right stuff to put on their skin, you might think that’s a strange thing for us to say.
But it’s true—the quality of your diet can make or break your skincare routine. Eat whole, nutritious foods (and there are certain skincare superfoods we’ll get to in a sec), and you’re setting yourself up for a healthy, youthful glow. On the other hand, if you continually munch on processed foods, you may negate the effects of even the fanciest medical grade skincare treatments.
If you don’t believe us, listen to Oprah. Her team recently published this article featuring foods good for your skin—and foods that aggravate skin woes like acne, dry skin and fine lines. As it happens, many of the best sources of collagen-boosting, wrinkle fighting, acne calming nutrients are in tasty, easy-to-prepare foods you can find in any grocery store or at your nearest farmers market.
For example, did you know that a delicious lunch of Vitamin A-rich sweet potato & kale bowl with a dessert of blueberries or intense (85%+) dark chocolate is a great meal to help brighten a dull complexion? Or that your caramel macchiato with whipped cream fix might be contributing to acne breakouts?
It’s really worth your time to read the whole article to learn how certain foods can impact your skin and get their full list of 12 foodie skincare tips.
