8 Foods With Powerful Skincare Benefits | SCRUBD

Food has a significant impact on the health and appearance of your complexion. The question is, what foods are best for your skin and how do they make such a clear improvement? This blog will discuss 8 different types of food, their benefits and some tips to on how to incorporate them into your lifestyle!

1. Strawberries

Strawberries are high in Vitamin C, which is great for collagen production and skin elasticity. If you're looking for a way to give your skin the best possible chance at healthy and strong connective tissues, 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. 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. Salmon

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 elastic and healthy!

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

4. Spinach

Spinach is a good food 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.

5. Goji Berries

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 their high levels of vitamin C and 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.

5. Walnuts

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.

6. Dark Chocolate

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!

7. Green Tea

Green tea is a rich source of antioxidants, and can help to reduce inflammation and improve skin complexion. Green tea has been shown to help improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

We use green tea in our Oil-Control Face Moisturiser due to its high amount of amino acids, enzymes and phytochemicals that help even skin tone and boost the health condition of the skin.

The benefits of green tea are never ending!

8. Avocados

Avocados are one of the best foods you can eat if your goal is to have glowing skin. They're high in Vitamin E and healthy fats that promote hydration, while also containing carotenoids which fight off skin damage from free radicals. 

Experts also argue that the fats and vitamins found in avocados can help repair skin conditions like eczema or acne!
