We’re constantly searching for the latest and greatest beauty product. But what if the secret to clear skin is in what you eat? Are you wondering which foods are going to give you the best results? With so much information and super foods trending on the daily, it’s hard to know exactly what to eat.
Here are top ten foods for clear, radiant skin all year round
Kale Kale me crazy! This leafy, green vegetable is a powerhouse of essential nutrients. High in vitamin A, Kale has been proven to be helpful in treating an array of skin conditions too. A glass of kale juice everyday keeps your skin concerns away.
Ginger Who would have thought that this spicy root could be so healthy for your skin! Ginger holds powerful antiseptic and cleansing qualities to keep your skin clear. Enjoy in your daily juice and combine with carrot for a real skin treat.
Celery Celery is packed full of goodness like vitamins A, C and E! It’s also a good source of skin-essential minerals like magnesium, selenium and potassium to keep your skin glowing all day long. Add to your daily juice or enjoy as a snack.
Brown Rice The key to keeping skin clear is keeping blood sugar levels in check. Any spikes in insulin can result in those pesky spots appearing. Swap your daily bread for brown rice instead and enjoy with some fresh lemon, steamed broccoli and tofu.
Garlic It may not be the best thing for your breath but raw garlic is a real treat for your skin. For best results, it’s best to eat garlic raw. Simply chop and add to your favourite salad.
Avocado Not only do they taste amazing, they are also packed full of vitamin E and vitamin C, which reduce inflammation and naturally hydrate the skin. Spread some on your gluten free toast for breakfast, enjoy in a smoothie or a raw sweet treat.
Blueberries The best kept secret for healthier hair and radiant skin and my personal favourite. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants to protect you from ageing and help to even skin-tone. Tip: add ½ cup to your morning smoothie or cereal.
Broccoli Spice up your dinner dish with some broccoli or broccolini and watch free radical damage fade away. Broccoli is packed with vitamin A, B, C, E and K to aid in collagen production and promote clear, beautiful skin. Pair with salmon for a delicious, healthy dinner.
Carrots Make these your daily snack and crunch on some of these orange vitamin machines and watch your skin GLOW. Carrots are high in beta-carotene which helps repair the skin and protect against premature ageing. Enjoy raw, cooked or juiced with a hint of mint.
Lemon Lemon is a powerful way to help your body detox and eliminate waste. It cleanses the liver and helps to build up new enzymes to eliminate toxins in your blood. The result is a clear, radiant complexion. Start your day with a squeeze of lemon in a warm glass of water.
