Six Health Foods With Big Beauty Benefits

Six Health Foods With Big Beauty Benefits

It doesn’t matter how much serum you slather on your skin, nails and hair. The fact is – what goes in your mouth has the biggest influence on your outward appearance!

Here’s a list of best health foods with beauty benefits that you can incorporate in your diet.

 

 

Six health foods with beauty benefits

1. Walnuts

These are the only type of nuts that contain a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids. These omega-3 fatty acids help to strengthen the skin and keep it hydrated. This is why a deficiency in this fat often results in eczema, which is associated with dry, scaly skin

2. Carrots

Carrots are loaded with carotenoids, which our body converts to vitamin A to help protect your skin against sun damage. 

3. Kiwis

Big thing truly come in small packages. You can find almost 120% of your daily needs in one medium kiwi. It is a rich source of vitamin C which promotes collage growth, keeping your skin taught and smooths fine lines.

4. Green tea

Green tea is an antioxidant powerhouse! It protects against UV light-induced skin damage, including an ability to improve skin elasticity, hydration and density. Green tea is also one of the best and most effective alternatives to coffee because it doesn’t leave you jittery, and is less acidic.

5. Sweet potatoes

These are a great source of beta carotene which turns into vitamin A. While consuming foods that are high in beta carotene is essential for healthy hair and skin, using vitamin A driven products is also fantastic for supple, glowing skin.

6. Oysters

Oysters are the best source of zinc. Zinc plays an important role in the growth and function of skin cells. Furthermore, some studies suggest that acne sufferers have lower than normal zinc levels. 

So, if your feel your skin is drier than usual, add these foods to your diet and enjoy their beauty benefits.
