You are what you eat!
Start eating the best foods for healthy skin because your skin will show it! Your skin possibly shows it more than your hips or your tummy. The skin is your body’s largest organ and it is sensitive to what foods you consume. So for glowing radiant skin, pay attention to what you put on your plate!
Foods high in anti-oxidants
Serums and creams touting claims of anti-oxidants are all the rage for a number of years. Did you know that you can eat foods high in anti-oxidants and get many of those benefits in what is probably a healthier manner. Definitely a more holistic way.
But hold onto your hat, because I’ve got a mind-blowing fact for you. While serums and creams have been riding the anti-oxidant wave for years, guess what? You can actually get a lot of those amazing benefits by munching on some delicious, antioxidant-rich foods!
Yep, you heard me right. It’s like a double whammy of goodness for your body. And the best part? It’s a more holistic approach that your body will thank you for. So, why settle for just one way to get those antioxidants when you can have your cake (or kale) and eat it too? Get ready to embrace the power of food, my friend!
Some foods that are high in anti-oxidants are:
- Dark Chocolate
- Red Cabbage
Heathy for you is healthy for your skin
Eating a diet rich in foods that are healthy for you is going to be healthy for your skin. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables that are orange or yellow in color. Eat lots of dark green leafy vegetables. Try to eat a wide variety of different fruits and vegetables. Try to consume of your calories from fruits and vegetables than you from protein.

Best beverages for beautiful skin
I think by now everyone knows how important water is to your skin and your overall health. You probably also know that sodas are not good for your skin.
Some beverages that are a little more controversial. Orange juice has a lot of vitamin C which is good, but it also has a lot of sugar which is bad. Coffee is another beverage that gets mixed reviews. The following is a short list of good for you beverages that shouldn’t be on anyone’s list of NO NOs.
- Green tea
- Cucumber juice
- Carrot juice
- Ginger Lemon juice
Everyone is different and goodness knows I have tried a number of different approaches to improve my diet. I think one of the key things is choose a way of eating that you can maintain. Last summer after hearing a talk on being vegan, I decided to stop eating meat and cut way back on dairy. I still eat fish and eggs and honey, but I am feeling better and my weight while not moving down as much as I would like is at least not continuing to climb.
