Did you ever think that foods could actually contribute to your overall beauty and skin health? Having healthy foods can improve the look of dull skin, eliminate dry skin, alleviate skin conditions, strengthen brittle hair & nails, improve the brightness of your eyes, whiten teeth, minimize wrinkles, and so much more!!!! We aren’t kidding you. Eating a well-rounded diet of all your fruits, vegetables, and essential nutrients will leave your body singing with joy and showing it. So what exactly do you have to eat more of to get this beautiful glow?

Avocados

This amazing fruit is a good source of biotin. Biotin is a water-soluble B-vitamin that helps your body convert food into energy. It also helps prevent dry skin, improve brittle nails and hair, and is also great for pregnant or breastfeeding women who may be deficient in this nutrient. When applied topically, they can hydrate dry skin.

At Home DIY Mask

Create a moisturizing mask at home. This one couldn’t be simpler. Pit the fruit, puree the pulp, and pat it on your face. The oil acts as an emollient. It also contains beneficial vitamin E.

Green Tea

We’ve done a whole post on Tea for health but Green Tea seems to reign supreme. Green tea’s high on the list of skin friendly beverages thanks to its impressive amount of polyphenols. If you can achieve 4 cups per day, your skin will see an incredible benefit. Polyphenols work together with antioxidants which help combat cell damage. Dark spots anyone? Wrinkles? Equate Beauty Dark Spot Corrector on Walmart.com for $12.84 can also help diminish the appearance of dark spots and blemishes.

Walnuts

This is a great alternative to eating fish since these incredible nuts provide Omega-3 fatty acids in rich doses. Omega-3 has a great benefit for your hair – helps put shine, and makes hair stronger. This will help with those suffering from brittle hair, dull hair, and damaged hair. Beauty 360 Moroccan Argan Oil Renewing Conditioner from CVS.com for $5.99 is amazing for hair! The exclusive blend of pure argan oil penetrates, hydrates, renews softness and restores shine while strengthening dry, damage hair.

Beans

Another great protein source, legumes help repair cells that have suffered free radical damage. During digestion, protein breaks down into amino acids, the building blocks of cells. Amino acids help to speed up the repair and regeneration of skin cells and collagen. Anti-aging is a negative effect from free radical exposure and damage. Up&up Revitalizing Body Wash from Target will help hydrate the skin, thus minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. Combine this with daily dry brushing and you’ll see a huge improvement in your skin in no time.

Many other foods contain amazing nutrients that can help reverse the signs of aging, leaving you with younger looking, brighter skin from head-to-toe. Eating a balanced diet, exercising, and consuming a lot of water all contribute to your overall health and appearance. This is the year for BIG changes! It’s never to late to start!
