Eat Your Way To Beautiful Skin

When it comes to skincare, we tend to rely on products that we apply to our skin to improve its health and appearance. Some of us even have products that we swear by. But truth is, beautiful skin has a lot more to do with what we put into our bodies. Beauty starts from within! 

In the same way that cardiovascular exercise will only be so effective if it’s followed by a pizza binge, skin care products will be hampered in their effectiveness if you don’t supplement them by eating the right foods. Nutrition can enhance and maybe even replace some of your expensive products. It’s simply a case of eating and drinking the right things to help the right cells in your body. Read on to see what you should consume for beautiful skin!

Beat cellulite with collagen boosters

They’re so common and many of us have embraced them. But if you want to lessen the appearance of cellulite, it’s important to promote healthy blood flow and circulation to connective tissue. Adequate hydration is key as well as the consumption of collagen boosting foods like dark berries which will strengthen the connective fibers in your tissues, preventing fat cells from pushing up to the surface and creating that uneven skin texture. If you’re a fan of spicy foods, try chillies and cayenne pepper. They not only boost your metabolism by up to 25% but they also contain B6 vitamin to restore and fortify connective tissue. A combination of nutrition and topical treatments can restore skin to its former smoothness. With so many anti-cellulite products on the market, it’s difficult to know who to trust. Fortunately you can find reviews on all the best products as well as useful information on the causes of cellulite at http://www.cellulite.com/.

Give your skin a healthy glow with greens

Green leafy veggies contain chlorophyll which gives them their color but also oxygenates the skin, giving it that elusive healthy glow. Add some kale or spinach to your smoothies to give your skin a boost, while throwing in some avocados which provides healthy fats and phytonutrients to improve circulation and even protect your skin from damaging UV rays.

Blitz acne with antioxidants

If you thought your genetics made you powerless against acne then think again. By avoiding dairy, alcohol and refined sugars and replacing them with plenty of water and antioxidant rich foods like green leafy veggies, blueberries and dark chocolate, they’ll protect your skin from damaging free radicals. Zinc rich pumpkin seeds will also help to clear up your skin, giving you confidence you never thought possible.
