Five Foods For Healthier Skin

Poor nutrition has adverse effects to our health from the inside out, so get more out of your body with what you put in to it, by making some healthy eating changes.

Health and Fitness Travel, the leading specialists in wellness holidays worldwide, have compiled a list of the best foods for glowing healthy skin. With the right food choices and simple swaps from sugary snacks for leafy greens and you will be amazed at the changes you see in your complexion, just one of the many benefits of healthy eating.

1. Salmon

Essential for a healthy functioning body, omega 3, helps nutrients to be absorbed during digestion and waste toxins to be removed, ultimately giving us more healthy looking skin. Rich in omega 3 oily fish, such as salmon, act as a natural detox, the perfect inclusion for any diet.

2. Blueberries

Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, blueberries are a fantastic booster for your skin. Its source of vitamin C produces collagen, which helps the growth of cells and gives skin its firmness and powerful antioxidants help with dry skin and reducing wrinkles. The ideal dietary addition for a healthy anti-ageing, blueberries are fantastic for rejuvenating your skin.

3. Leafy Vegetables

Packed with antioxidants leafy greens such as kale, broccoli and spinach are rapidly growing in popularity, thanks to their diverse health benefits, including healthier skin and slimming superfood qualities. Full of vitamin A, which aids the turnover of skin cells, these green veggies see that your skin is renewed more quickly, leaving you fresh-faced for everyone to see. 

4. Garlic

Whilst garlic may not be ideal date food, it has many benefits. Full of Vitamin B6 and a chemical called allicin, this reacts with the blood and when digested kills off any viruses in the body, including skin conditions. 

5. Nuts and Seeds

A powerful antioxidant, most nuts and seeds are full of vitamin E; particularly almonds, brazil nuts, pine nuts, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Best of them all are flax seeds; like salmon, they contain omega 3 fatty acids and, like vegetables, lots of magnesium which is important for skin repair.
