There are so many buzz words when it comes to skincare. They often claim to contain important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
But a great way to get those same goodies into your skin without the need for expensive lotions and potions is through your diet.
Today we look at five great ways to help your skin glow – and they’re all available at your local supermarket.
These healthy nuts contain vitamin B2 which hydrates the skin, making it appear smoother. Try eating a handful as a snack – the protein content keeps you feeling fuller for longer.
Try them – in a smoothie, such as our Almond, Coconut and Cinnamon Smoothie.
We all know that oranges contain Vitamin C, but did you know that this is crucial for collagen and elastin production? That’s what keeps the skin looking plump and wrinkle free. Due to the fibre lost from juicing, they are better eaten whole. Keep one in your bag for an on-the-go snack.
Try them – in a salad, such as our Spinach, Orange and Sunflower Seed Salad.
The high levels of omega-3 essential fatty acids help to boost your natural glow. Two serves per week provides you with the recommended intake of omega-3, which is good for your heart too.
Try it – on the BBQ with our Spiced Salmon Kebabs with Yoghurt Dip.
The lutein in spinach can help to prevent sun damage and can also repair the sun damage that’s already on the skin. That’s not to say you shouldn’t still wear a protective sunscreen and a hat though!
Try to add spinach to your meals to bulk it out, it packs a big nutritional punch while only adding 24 calories per 100g.
Try it – in a frittata such as our Foolproof Spinach and Feta Frittata.
You’ve probably seen Vitamin E on your moisturiser, and avocado is chock full of the stuff. It also contains Vitamin B.
Together they can reduce the effects of environmental damage (sun, pollution) while also helping to restore lost moisture. Try to enjoy a serving of avocado three times per week.
Try it – in your pasta, such as our Chicken, Coriander, Avocado and Lime Pasta.
