Not everyone is blessed with great skin and a number of women want healthy glowing skin. Women spend a lot of money on skincare products just to make their skin glow. One thing I have learnt in my quest to have a beautiful, glowing complexion, is that gorgeous, hydrated skin starts from within.
So whatever pesky skin condition you may have, the right diet is a valuable aid to achieving a beautiful skin. Include these 12 foods in your diet and get that healthy glow you are after.
1. Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes contain biotin and vitamin C. These helps to maintain the moisture levels in the skin cells and also they help collagen formation and maintenance.
2. Cooked Tomatoes
Tomatoes contain Lycopene. Lycopene helps to boost collagen strength. Cooking the tomatoes helps to increase the Lycopene level.
Eggs are a source of vitamin K. this is essential for stopping calcium build-up in elastin. When calcified, elastin is less flexible and drier, so wrinkles are more likely to form and be deeper. It also helps protect skin from acne, rashes, and even dryness.
If you have break-outs, carrots are your go to wands.They also prevent the overproduction of cells in the skin’s outer layer, so you don’t have to worry about clogged pores. The vitamin A in carrots also helps in the reduction of skin-cancer cells.
Avocado helps to hydrate the skin. It also helps to reduce the risk of premature ageing caused by ultraviolet radiation. So they also help to protect the skin from sun damage.
7. Coconut Water/Oil
The coconut oil is a must have if you want healthy skin. The coconut water helps to hydrate the skin making it look healthy.
8. Papaya ( Paw-Paw)
This fruit contains a lot of enzymes that helps relieve inflammation, a common source of skin conditions.
Onions help to keep your skin well hydrated. This is because Onions are rich in sulphur and it is needed for collagen synthesis.
10. Yellow Bell Pepper
The Yellow Bell peppers are rich in vitamin C. And this helps with wrinkles and premature ageing.
