Her is The Best 10 Diet to Get Healthy Summer Skin
August 19, 2019
weather is finally upon us, and with that, it seems everyone is trying
to look and feel their best while taking advantage of the outdoors.
Weight management is certainly a huge part of that, with everyone trying
to increase their exercise and improve their diet, but surprisingly
skincare is another topic I hear come up all the time. We not only want
to strut in those cute summer jeans but we also want our skin to glow
while we’re doing it. Am I right?
Given all the creams and topical
potions that abound to keep your skin at its best, many often overlook
the power of nutrition in giving your skin true, lasting vitality.
Nourishing our skin from the inside is just as important as protecting
it on the outside.
Maybe it’s time to rethink that skin care
routine and focus on food, not formulas. What you eat every day can make
a big impact on how both you and your skin function.
What foods are best for that? Have a read through for some easy summer diet do’s and don’ts to keep you glowing all year long.
10 Foods for Youthful Skin :
are chocked full of antioxidant compounds. Antioxidants help us fight
off free radical damage which is, unfortunately, an unavoidable
consequence of the world we live in. Our food, our household products,
other environmental chemicals and even stress can create free radicals
which damage our cells. Antioxidants help knock these out and restore
proper balance and function.
2. Cruciferous veggies
cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, bok choy… they are all
fantastic when it comes to your skin. They are high in vitamins A and C,
which are important for our skin, and the phytochemicals in cruciferous
can help reduce inflammation and promote estrogen balance, both which
can be a huge boost to your epidermis.
3. Wild Salmon (and other Omega 3 fatty acids)
fats are key to healthy cells, and healthy cells equal healthy skin.
Wild salmon is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids, known for their
powerful role in reducing inflammation. There are more Omega 3 sources
besides salmon, however. Other animal sources include mackerel,
sardines, tuna, and anchovies. Plant-based sources include chia seeds,
hemp hearts, flax seed, and walnuts.
fruit is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants which
helps keep skin supple and ward off the effects of aging. More reason
for some guacamole when the weather heats up!
another fantastic fat source that is helpful for our cells and also
contains a host of skin-protecting antioxidants. Additionally, they are
high in fiber, which may not seem directly related to your skin, but
anything that supports digestion and promotes regular elimination will
help detox your skin and body as well.
6. Coconut oil
still on a fat kick here. As you can tell, getting good sources of
healthy fats in your diet is key. A fat-free diet is not the way to
healthy skin. Coconut oil is another of those powerhouse fats. It has
potent anti-microbial properties to ward off bacteria throughout our
body and can support our immune system. All of this, in turn, promotes
healthier skin. Easy ways to use coconut oil would be with sautéing,
using as a fat in baking, or mixed into smoothies. Personally, I like to
use full-fat coconut milk in making chia seed pudding to get in a
7. Bone broth
Fluids are super important for
keeping out cells well hydrated, so bone broth can certainly help with
that, but it’s also a major source of collagen. Collagen, which tends to
decrease with age, is what keeps our skin firm and elastic. A little
bone broth can go a long way in increasing hydration and giving our skin
the building blocks to repair and restore the collagen in our skin. Use
as a warm evening beverage or mix into soups or other dishes that call
8. Fermented foods
We know that fermented foods,
or foods rich in natural probiotics, are good for our gut. A healthy
intestinal tract equals good digestion and good digestion shows on our
skin. When we are absorbing our nutrients properly and eliminating
toxins on a regular basis, it will produce noticeable results on the
outside as well as the inside. Eat fermented foods daily to balance your
gut bacteria and keep that digestive process running smoothly. Examples
of fermented foods include sauerkraut, kimchi, beet kvass, water kefir,
kombucha, tempeh, pickled veggies, and miso.
While some dairy
products are fermented as well, best to keep those to a minimum as dairy
is often implicated in inflammation and skin issues.
know many have a love/hate relationship with this herb, but if you are a
cilantro lover out there, more reason to use it early and often!
Cilantro contains chlorophyll, which has powerful detoxifying properties
in the body. Cilantro also supports liver detoxification, which may
help reduce or prevent acne by helping rid your liver of toxins more
quickly and efficiently. Sprinkle cilantro on anything and everything.
Even add to smoothies or pressed homemade juices.
10. Leafy greens
can’t say enough good things about leafy green vegetables. Kale,
spinach, chard, romaine… they are all great sources of iron, calcium, B
vitamins and fiber. More importantly for your skin, they are a good
boost to your liver for detoxifying the body. As we’ve said before,
detoxing from the inside will show outside in your skin, so eat up a
variety of greens daily to get that summer glow.
