What to Eat for Glowing Skin?
Glowing skin is my primary goal when it comes to skin. What about you? Wouldn’t you want to have healthy and glowing skin? I am guessing, the answer is yes. Do you know what is the secret to glowing skin? It is definitely not the infinite number of visits to a salon or using expensive skincare products? Then what is it? Well, it is what you eat. Yes, eat right and everything will be alright.
Well, we often get mesmerised by healthy glowing skin of celebrities and think that it is because they can afford all the expensive products in the world. Well, it is true that they use best of skincare products available out there some of which are customised according to their skin type. However, what we fail to notice is that they also eat what is good for their health as well as skin. They don’t survive on junk and oily food. They munch on salads and other healthy food. So, if you think the reason behind the beautiful skin of celebrities is just expensive products, then you are wrong.
If you also want to have glowing skin, then here a few food items that you should include in your diet.
Foods Rich in Omega 3
Omega 3 is great for not just for your skin but your hair and overall health too. It protects your skin against damage caused by the sun, can reduce acne, guard your skin against dryness, itchiness, redness and more. So, make sure to have food items like walnuts, brussels sprouts, hemp seeds, vegetable oils and green leafy vegetables that are rich in this important nutrient.
Foods Rich in Antioxidants
We all know antioxidants are good for your health. But, how do they benefit your skin? Well, antioxidants help in decreasing the damaging effects caused to your skin because of exposure to the sun or pollution. Antioxidants provide you protection from the free radicals, which are free unstable molecules that can damage your skin cells and also speed up the ageing of your skin. So, for healthy glowing skin, consume foods that are rich in this important substance like berries, kale, beans, beetroot, spinach, dark chocolate etc.
Foods Rich in Silica
Silica is very important for having healthy and glowing skin as they help in collagen formation. Collagen, in turn, helps in regenerating tissues and skin. They also delay ageing the process. So, include food items like bananas, wheat, raisins, brown rice, oats and green beans that are rich in Silica.
Also, remember that silica concentration in your tissues decreases with age. Hence it is very important to consume food items that will keep Silica level balanced in your tissues.
Foods Rich in Vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of the very powerful antioxidants that not only protects your skin from damage caused by free radicals but also reduce the appearance of brown spots and pigmentation that often occurs with ageing. They also help in collagen formation.
So, do not forget to include food items rich in this vitamin-like berries, broccoli, kiwi, kale, oranges, papaya etc.
Apart from these eat food rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, protein etc. In short, eat healthy in order to keep your skin glowing and healthy along with a healthy mind and body.
