I can’t stress enough the importance of eating healthy for our skin. It really enhances our overall glow, and who doesn’t want glowing, smooth skin, not to mention a healthy body as well. Sometimes it can be a little difficult incorporating healthy meals into our diets, especially when we’re all busy juggling university and work.
- Avocado: this superfood is amazing, it’s packed with healthy fats and omega-3s, and helps fight dryness in the winter. Delicious as a spread on toast or as a guacamole dip.
- Tomatoes: they pair really well with avocados, and who would have thought that tomatoes are one of the best things we could eat for our skin. Here’s a great article that sums up all the benefits.
- Almonds: perfect for snacking on, almonds can be added to your breakfast or taken as a rich snack on the go. These nuts are packed with many benefits including Vitamin E and Zinc, two ingredients that help fight inflammation. A small hand-full will provide you with the nutrients and good fats you are looking for.
- Dark chocolate: mmm … chocolate! This seemingly indulgent ingredient is actually really good for you (as long as you’re eating at least 70% pure dark chocolate). It’s supposed to improve the texture of your skin, so have a square or two for dessert and your skin will be super smooth in no time.
