Foods for Healthy Skin

One of the most important side benefits of a healthy diet is its effect on your skin. In fact, for many women, their skin is a direct reflection of the type of foods they are putting into their bodies. Although there are many excellent products that can improve your skin from the outside in, for best results, it behooves you to use nutrition to improve your skin from the inside out. These are some of the best foods for creating healthy, glowing skin:

  • Water: Drinking eight glasses of water a day are essential for keeping your skin young and hydrated.
  • Citrus Fruits: Citrus fruits contain Vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights the free radical that can cause breakouts, sun damage, etc.
  • Olive Oil: Olive oil helps maintain the skin's moisture and elasticity
  • Avocado: Avocados are an excellent source of Vitamin E, which, like Vitamin C, is also an anti-oxidant. As such, avocados have been known to delay the aging of the skin.
  • Sweet Potatoes: Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of Vitamin A, which is needed to combat sun damage.
