Skin health can be yours, if your diet is right

A dry, dull skin complexion is a sign that you are not eating right. When it comes to your health, the outside reflects the inside.

Top 10 foods for healthy, glowing skin

1. Avocados

Includes essential oils and B-complex vitamins that nourish your skin. Avocados contain lots of niacin, which is an anti-inflammatory. This soothes irritated and red, blotchy areas.

2. Mangoes

Include vitamin A which maintains and repairs cells. A deficiency will result in a dry, flaky complexion.

3. Almonds

Include vitamin E which moisturizes. Its antioxidants protect against damage and premature aging.

4. Cottage cheese

Includes selenium which will protect you against cancer and fight dandruff.

5. Acerola cherries

Includes vitamin C which fights damage and wrinkles

6. Oysters

Includes zinc which helps boost elastin which is the skin’s elastic protein.

7. Baked potatoes

Includes copper, which is an essential mineral that works with vitamin C and zinc to produce the elastin fibers that support skin structure.

8. Mushrooms

Includes riboflavin, which helps improve blemishes caused by rosacea

9. Flaxseed oil

Includes omega-3 which hydrates and unclogs pores

10. Wheat germ

Includes biotin which keeps you from having itchy, scaly skin

So try these foods out and over a period of time, you too can have healthy and glowing skin!
