10 Healthy Foods for Clear Skin and Glossy Hair

 

 

 

For skin and hair that glow with beauty, you do not need luxurious beauty products, all you need is a healthy skin diet.

Check out these 10 nutritious foods which make up an ideal diet for healthy skin and hair.

 

1. Blueberries

Want to embark on a healty skin diet? Be sure to include blueberries on your list. Half a cup of blueberries added to your yogurt and cereals will give you a wealth of antioxidants, which prevent premature aging.

 

2. Wild Salmon

Whether you have it grilled, in a salad or in sushi, wild salmon makes a great addition to a healthy skin diet. It is a great source for omega-3 fatty acids, which will keep your skin supple and moisturized, as well as selenium and vitamin D.

3. Spinach

Humble spinach is rich in lutein (great for the eyes), vitamins B, C and E, omega-3 fatty acids and minerals, so be sure to include it in your healthy skin diet.

4. Oysters

We cannot vouchsafe for their aphrodisiac qualities, but oysters are a great addition to a diet for healthy hair and skin. They are a great source for zinc, which helps in skin cell renewal and protects the health of your nails, hair, and eyes.

5. Tomatoes

A diet for healthy skin should also include tomatoes, the best source of lycopene, a powerful  anti-aging antioxidant. Processed tomato products provide higher levels of lycopene, so you can take it from canned tomato sauce, tomato juice or ketchup.

 

6. Walnuts

A handful of walnuts can provide your daily dose of  omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E, which makes them an ideal addition to a healthy skin diet.

 

7. Kiwis

Kiwis are super-rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, which can keep your skin healthy and firm and protect you from cancer and heart disease.

8. Dark Chocolate

Good news for chocolate-lovers: chocolate does not cause acne and there’s no need to give it up when embarking on a healthy skin diet. On the contrary, dark chocolate (ideally, with at least 60%-cocoa) can keep your skin moisturized and protects from sun damage.

9. Yogurt

Have one cup of low-fat yogurt with fruit or cereal for breakfast or as a light snack and you’ll get your daily dose of calcium, essential for your nails and teeth.

 

10. Sweet Potatoes

Whether you have them mashed or roasted with herbs, sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene, which keeps aging at bay, and are a super-food for a healthy skin diet.

 

Include these miraculous, nutrient-rich foods in your diet and your skin will be glowing with health and beauty in no time.
