Naturally glowing skin is the best make-up you can wear. Eating the right foods is the answer to glowing skin. Try adding these five glow-getting foods to your daily diet regime to get that healthy, sun-kissed look just in time for the summer sunshine!
- Organic Flax Seeds: Flaxseeds are very high on the anti-inflammatory index. They are great for skin because redness and inflammation of skin is minimized, meaning it helps with rosacea, acne, dermatitis, and psoriasis. An easy addition to your diet, Organic Flax Seeds can be added to water, juice, smoothies or sprinkled on top of yogurt, salads and your breakfast cereal.
- Avocado: The benefits of avocado for your skin are plenty. It reduces wrinkles, purges dead skin cells, moisturizes, acts as a natural sunscreen and gives the skin an overall glow. Adding avocado to your diet is easy too — you can eat the fruit, drink the juice or use avocado oil directly on your skin or in cooking.
- Organic Coconut Oil: Coconut oil has been all the rage with celebrities and fashionistas in the past several years and for good reason. It moisturizes the skin deeply, strengthens the underlying tissues and removes excess dead skin, giving you a natural glow. For best results, apply Organic Coconut Oil directly to the skin, though you can also cook with coconut oil for overall health.
- Organic Nuts: The biggest benefit of eating organic nuts is preventing the breakdown of collagen and helping the body to manufacture more. Organic nuts contain protein, which is important in the manufacturing of collagen in the body and vitamin E, which makes your skin look younger by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Almonds, walnuts and other organic nuts are tasty and easy to add to your diet as an easy snack or a salad topping.
- Almond Oil: Almond oil is popular for use in aromatherapy and generally makes skin healthier. Among the many benefits, it helps moisturize skin deeper, soothes skin irritation and relieves dry and chapped skin, along with reducing dark circles and delaying signs of aging. Pure almond oil can be directly applied to the skin, used as salad dressing or in baking.
