Eating Right to Improve Beauty

Slathering on a daily dose of sunscreen in the morning and heavy moisturizer will only improve your skin so much. If you don’t eat right, you’re skin won’t improve to the maximum beauty potential it has hidden within. And when your skin isn’t beautiful, your overall natural look isn’t as beautiful as well.

There are certain foods you should add to your daily meals. Not only will they make your skin softer, clearer and more radiant, they will also improve your health and beauty overall.

Eat Fish

Fish contains special oils that improve your skin. Fish also contain omega-3 fatty acids that improve your skin as well. Stick with healthy fish options such as tilapia and salmon cooked in canola oil or water rather than battered and fried.

Eat Spinach

Green vegetables carry vitamin A, which improves skin health. Although other vegetables such as broccoli, kale and sweet potatoes help with vitamin A, spinach includes iron that will take skin health one step further.

Eat Nuts

Nuts, such as walnuts and almonds, can help your skin in two ways. First, they contain the good kind of fat: monounsaturated. This will lower your bad cholesterol and raise your good cholesterol. Nuts also contain vitamin E, which improves skin.

Try your best to steer clear of greasy, deep-fried foods or meals containing trans and saturated fats.

Next time you’re at the grocery store, consider stocking up on good foods especially if you’ve been having trouble with your skin.

  1. Fortunately I love all of the above so not a problem for me, but getting teenages to eat it is not easy.

  2. You’re right- getting teenagers to eat healthily is often an uphill struggle. I find the key is to involve them as much as possible in the shopping/cooking process. They are often more inclined to eat healthy meals if they have had input in making them. Admittedly this sounds like a tactic much more suited to use on younger children, but trust me, used in the right way it’s hugely effective for teenagers.
