Hey My Luvlies!
Lately, I’ve been really focusing on coming out of quarantine leveled-up in all aspects of my life. One of those aspects is my skin, which I want to clear up before the stay-at-home order is done. I’m sure most of you want the same thing!
One of the best ways to improve your skin is through food. Since food is medicine, it has the ability to cure any part of our body, especially our skin. So, I did a little research to see which foods were best for promoting healthy, glowing skin. Luckily for me, I love all of these foods, so this will be an easy one for me to keep up with. There are plenty of other foods out there that have positive effects on the skin, so if you don’t like or can’t eat something below due to allergies, check this list for more options.

5 Foods That Promote Healthy Skin
1. Wild Salmon
Wild salmon keeps skin moisturized and protects it from sun exposure because of Omega-3 fatty acids and selenium. The vitamin D in wild salmon makes the bones in your body stronger. Keep in mind that there is difference between wild salmon and farmed-raised salmon. Although there is such a thing as responsibly farmed salmon, farmed salmon has been known to contain toxins that aren’t good for you.
Blueberries are filled with vitamin C and antioxidants. Vitamin C helps the skin stay firm, while the antioxidants fight breakouts and prevent skin from aging prematurely.
Like blueberries, kiwi also promotes firm skin along with not promoting premature wrinkles in skin by being filled with vitamin C and antioxidants. You can remove dirt and oils from your face by using kiwi as a facial cleanser.
4. Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene, vitamin A, C, and E. They help the skin glow and protect it from UV rays in the sun, while boosting the immune system.
Cucumbers have lots of water in them, which makes them perfect for keeping skin hydrated. They’re rich in vitamins K, A, C, E, and caffeic acid, which reduces irritation and puffiness.
I hope you add these foods to your diet and see your skin change for the better!
