I've been working in the cosmetic industry for almost 25 years. Everyday, someone asks me how skin care products can help them to have clear skin. There are so many wonderful products designed to help you achieve exactly that.
However, if you're not starting from the inside, and eating foods that promote clear skin, it will be very difficult to achieve the perfect complexion.
Here are some of my tried-and-true tips for maintaining beautiful skin through your diet.
1. Eat your organic fruits and vegetables.
They are loaded with vitamin C, Vitamin E, cartenoids and flavenoids. They are natures antioxidant! My favorites include carrots, beets, avocado, pears, green leafy vegetables, and all berries.
2. Add foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids.
These can help reduce inflammation and flare- ups on the skin. Include organic chia seeds, flax seeds, sardines, fresh water salmon, walnuts.
3. Drink plenty of filtered water.
This helps flush the toxins from the body which could cause issues on the surface of the skin. Drink organic green teas, 2 to 3 cups a day, which are (again!) loaded with anti oxidants. Include Kombucha drinks, which detoxify the liver. Kombuchas are rich in enzymes and acids that your body uses to destroy toxins. They help to reduce the load on your liver which in turn will help to promote beautiful healthy skin.
