Here’s what to add to your diet to improve the health of your skin
Drink plenty of water! It flushes out the toxins, and makes your skin glow. The cheapest yet most effective skincare product! If you’re thirsty, so is your skin! It’s essential to drink plenty of water (filtered or spring water) every day, but juicy fruits and vegetables (like apples, strawberries, watermelons and celery) help with your hydration needs. Eat for great skin
Get plenty of sleep! Get about 8 hours or more per night of proper, uninterupted sleep. This can be difficult if you're a shift worker or have young children
Antioxidants! These protect your skin from the damaging effects of UV radiation and may help prevent skin cancer. Foods high in antioxidants include green tea, citrus fruits, blueberries, prunes and leafy green vegetables like kale and spinach
Selenium! This mineral is used by your body to create a protein with antioxidant properties. The absolute best source for selenium is a handful of brazil nuts. If you can’t find those, other nuts will do. Fish, turkey, whole wheat pasta and brown rice will also help, but nothing compares to nuts!
