9 Foods With Powerful Skincare Benefits

Posted by Haris Ertsos on

When you look your best, you feel your best - and that makes a big difference in everything you do. So here are the top 8 foods that will enhance your appearance and help you put your best foot forward. 

1. Strawberries: The secret to eternal youth? 

Strawberries are high in Vitamin C, which is great for collagen production and skin elasticity. If you're looking for a way to keep your look looking young and healthy, look no further than these juicy little berries. 

They also protect your skin from UV (Ultraviolet) rays and are packed with alpha-hydroxylic acid, which removes dead skin cells for clearer, smoother skin!


2. The Best Trick For Getting Rid Of Dry Skin: Tomatoes.

Tomatoes are high in lycopene, which helps protect the skin from UV ray damage. They also contain Vitamin A, an essential micronutrient that enhances cell turnover and collagen production.

Tomatoes are full of antioxidants that reduce redness and irritation on the skin by helping to curb inflammation in the body. Additionally, they improve your hydration levels with their high water content of around 95% (which is good news for those who are prone to dry skin).


3. Eat Salmon To Get A Fresh Look.

Salmon is a great source of Omega- fatty acids! These help to keep the skin moisturised and prevent dryness, acne and redness. It contains a healthy dose of Vitamin A and Vitamin B12 as well as being a rich source of antioxidants and selenium, keeping your skin looking fresh and energised. 

As it's so rich in omega- fatty acids, you only need to eat about eight ounces of salmon to see results on your skin.


4. Not A Fan Of Fish? Walnuts Are High In Omega 3 Too.

Walnuts are a powerhouse food to include in your diet because they support strong and healthy skin cells. Walnuts are high in Vitamin E, which helps to keep skin moisturised and prevents dry, flaky skin!

Additionally, they help slow down the signs of ageing by preventing collagen breakdown within the body.

One thing that makes walnuts unique is that they are one of the few plant-based sources of Omega-fatty acids making them accessible for those on vegan or vegetarian diets.


5. Do You Eat Enough Spinach? Here’s How It Can Stop The Clock On Your Skin. 

Spinach is one of the best greens to include in your diet if you're looking to improve skin elasticity as it contains Vitamins A, C and E, all of which are support collagen production.

Spinach is also high in antioxidants! These protect the skin from free radical damage which causes collagen breakdown, wrinkles, blemishes and sagging skin!

The antioxidants in spinach also help to detoxify the body and remove harmful toxins that can age the skin prematurely. So if ageing skin is your top concern, add some of these leafy greens to your meals. 


6. Goji Berries Can Extend the Life of Your Skin Cells.

Goji berries may be one of the most antioxidant-rich foods out there and their nutritional value is unparalleled.

Goji berries have a myriad of benefits including increased collagen production due to their high levels of vitamin C. They also provide protection against free radicals which can cause ageing signs such as fine lines and wrinkles.

The advantages of goji berries can also be experienced by using skincare products that harness these super berries.

Our Anti-Ageing Face Moisturiser is formulated with goji berries and they play a key role in balancing skin tone and extending the life of skin cells that produce collagen. Essentially, they help you look as young as you feel!

Dark chocolate is high in flavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Additionally, it is high in Vitamin E and C, which as we now know provide incredible benefits for our skin.

Dark chocolate has been linked to lower blood pressure levels as well as reduced stress levels within the body. All of these benefits have a cumulative effect on your overall wellbeing and of course your skin health!
