With the cooler months upon us, one thing we’re probably going to miss the most is having that natural sunkissed glow. There’s nothing that quite compares to the perfect summer glow but with fall’s arrival we need to create the glow on our on. While there are countless makeup and skincare products that promise to give you the glow you’ve been missing, the best place to start is with your foods. When you’re eating right, your skin can glow from within. Here are 5 foods to start with!
Kiwi is a great food to eat if you want healthy glowing skin. Kiwi is full of vitamin E which helps to moisturize the skin and is an antioxidant which means it protects the skin from environmental factors like pollution. Kiwi also contains a healthy dose of fibers that work to clear toxins from your body. This can help you skin stay clean and clear.
Another fruit to add to your glowing skin diet are strawberries. Strawberries are full of another antioxidant vitamin that is known for brightening the skin, vitamin C. Vitamin C supports healthy collagen production which helps skin feel smoother and firmer. You’ll find many vitamin C serums available to help keep skin youthful and radiant but keeping strawberries on hand works well too!
Bell peppers aren’t only a great addition to add a little flavor to any meal, they also work to keep skin looking young and bright. Like strawberries, bell peppers are packed with vitamin C allowing it to protect and brighten the skin from within. Bell peppers are also anti-inflammatory so they help reduce puffiness or redness in the skin which is an added bonus when you’re trying to perfect the glow.
Although it’s pretty trendy at the moment, another vegetable to add to your glowing skin line up is Kale. Like a few other foods on this list, kale is an antioxidant which means it offers your skin some protection but, it’s also full of vitamin A which helps to promote skin cell growth. Dead skin is the easiest way to keep skin looking dull and lackluster, with healthy skin cell growth (and a good exfoliation session) you’ll be able to get rid of dead skin to make way for healthy, glowing skin.
We’ll start with everyone’s favorite: almonds. Almonds are great for helping your skin glow from within because they are full of antioxidant vitamin E. Almonds are also great for restoring moisture to dry skin which is another cause of skin that looks dull.
Walnuts aren’t as popular in the food space as almonds, but they are actually really great for the skin. That’s because walnuts are full of B vitamins which are directly responsible for the appearance of your skin. The vitamin B in walnuts help to restore moisture, smooth the texture of the skin, and help to even the complexion.
