Eat Better, Look Better

I had the pleasure of watching a really interesting presentation about food and skin care last week, so I thought I’d share a few tidbits with you!

I think deep down we know this already, but it bears repeating: if you want your skin to look its best, you have to eat and drink the right things.  Here are a few great skin-nourishers… how many of them do you eat?


Berries have antioxidants that help slow down the aging process, and give our skin a healthy, youthful glow.  And did you know that frozen blueberries actually have more antioxidants than fresh ones?  They’re picked and frozen at the absolute peak of freshness, so they’re jam-packed with awesome nutrients.


Water is a no-brainer, but most of us don’t get as much of it as we should.  Make sure you always have a bottle on hand, and you’ll totally see a difference in your skin.


Avocados are packed with B vitamins, which act as an anti-inflammatory and reduce redness in skin.


Almonds contain vitamin E, which moisturizes skin and protects it from harsh UV rays.


Eggs are a good source of vitamin A, which helps produce new skin cells and will help to keep you looking fresh.


Garlic and Onions contain sulphur, which helps to maintain skins’ smooth appearance.  (So happy these are on the list… they are total staples in our house!)


Do you eat many of the foods on this list?  Were you surprised to see any of them on there?  What do you do to keep your skin looking great?  Tell me in the comments!
