Superfoods for Glowing skin

Beauty starts from within...


Let’s talk about something really important.  SKIN CARE and FOOD.  What you put IN your body is just as important as what we put ON our body. I feel like we all know this, but sometimes we do not realize, that what we eat has direct effect on our skin and eating good fats, antioxidants, vitamin C, collagen etc., can mean the difference between a fresh, glowing complexion and a tired, puffy, wrinkled one.

Grab some blueberries and let’s get specific and break it down:


Avocados are famously great our skin. We all know that I feel? Avocados are full of Vitamin C&E, and help regenerate damaged skin cells, and reduce redness and irritation. The omega 9’s, in particular, keep your the top layer of your skin moisturized, which gives you noticeably hydrated and healthy-looking skin. You can put in a smoothie or eat at least a tablespoon of avocado a day.


Blueberries are also full of vitamin A, which helps normalize oil levels in your skin. Antioxidants are one of the most important factors in maintaining beautiful skin, and eating blueberries is one of the easiest ways to get them. Antioxidants help fight and neutralize free radicals (one of skin’s worst enemies), which are known to damage skin cells and collagen, causing wrinkles and dry skin.


Sweet Potatoes

I love a baked sweet potato. This root vegetable is full of antioxidants and vitamin C. Sweet potatoes also have vitamin A & collagen, which is ideal for the skin. It can also decrease sensitivity to the sun.


Oily fish in general, and salmon in particular, is packed full of omega 3’s, another good fat that does wonders for your skin. The fatty acids protect the skin from sun exposure, help repair already damaged skin, and keep cell membranes healthy and hydrated, keeping toxins out and your skin looking supple and soft.


Turmeric is great for skin due to its incredible anti-inflammatory properties.  Eating or drinking dried or fresh turmeric helps fight inflammation, keeping skin looking fresher and younger, while also helping relieve more serious inflammatory skin problems such as eczema and rosacea.
