The Best Foods For Your Skin

Did you know the average person spends over $1,000 a year on skincare products and doesn’t even bother to use them regularly? Yes, we’re guilty as well. It’s one thing to be inspired to take care of your skin, and another to actually do it, but healthy skin starts from the inside out. What we put in our bodies gives us energy, keeps us feeling our best and can be the biggest contributor to skin health. As the weather shifts, it is even more important to stay active and keep a balanced diet to support our skin as much as possible. Here’s what’s on the healthy skin menu.

Avocado

It’s no secret than anything with an oil is probably good for the skin. Avo is topically hydrating, but also soothing and great for reducing wrinkles. It has over 20 vitamins and minerals – not to mention the fatty acids inside. Use this in a face mask, on the scalp and hair and in your diet, of course, for a more youthful appearance. 

Spinach

A vegetable ideal for teens and adults. #SpinachBenefits #HealthyFood #VeggieDelight

Popeye swore by spinach and there’s no reason we shouldn’t be eating more of this leafy green. As a rule of thumb, the darker the vegetable, the better. Spinach is full of Vitamins such as A, K and C for skin radiance and fighting off free radicals. Blend into a smoothie or eat as raw as possible for the best skin benefits.

Carrots

These bright, crunchy veggies are a potent skin elixir great for keeping eyes bright and healthy and skin glowingly clear. Full of vitamin A, carrots help to fight cancer-causing skin cells and boost collagen production. This food is essential for youthful skin! 

Almonds

We love the crunchy, slightly sweet taste of almonds! This nut is high in Vitamin E, which is an essential building block of the skin. They are great for repairing sun damage and they’re one of the best sources of calcium outside of milk! Grind into a paste with honey for a softening skin exfoliant that will make you glow.

Dark Chocolate

From the ashes of @chocolateaday comes the same great product wrapped in a brand new name. Meet Roar Chocolate!

A post shared by Roar Chocolates (@roarchocolates) on

Talk about decadent! Dark chocolate is as healthy as it is sinful, with antioxidant properties and a rich cocoa taste. This dessert helps to soften and protect the skin as well as reduce inflammation. Dark chocolate helps to stimulate blood flow for healthy looking skin (and it does a great job of satisfying your sweet tooth).

After reading this, we’re surprisingly motivated to eat healthier. It may not be easy to eat these items all the time, but trying to incorporate at least 2-3 of them on a weekly basis is a good start. We’re pretty sure it won’t be hard to work in the dark chocolate at least. Breakfast omelets with spinach and avocado, then pickled carrots and avocado on grilled chicken tacos, and finally dark chocolate covered almonds for dessert. Which of these healthy foods are already in your kitchen?
