If you want healthier and more radiant skin this fall, it’s important to eat a diet filled with nourishing foods. They’ll help your complexion and fight the signs of aging naturally. You can then use your Derma9 skincare products with greater ease because you won’t be erasing all their benefits by eating a poor diet.
Here are five of the most skin-nourishing foods you can eat this fall:
- Kale. A virtual powerhouse of vitamins and nutrients, this leafy green vegetable deserves a special place on your plate meal after meal. In addition to providing your body with plenty of antioxidants, kale contains the rare Vitamin K. Make it a point to add kale to salads, smoothies, and even the fat bombs you love to make.
- Avocados. Full of healthy fats, this amazing food helps the skin by keeping it flexible and from being dried out because of its high moisture content. Avocados can be eaten on toast, in salads, as guacamole, and even as ice cream. The best time to buy them is year-round by choosing a variety that is currently in season.
- Tomatoes. Vitamin C and lycopene protects skin from harsh UVA and UVB rays from the sun. The substances also prevent wrinkling which can lead to premature aging. Tomatoes are great to eat on their own with a hint of salt or used as an ingredient in salads and other dishes such as soups and casseroles.
- Green Tea. Rich with EGCG, an antioxidant that fights sun damage, green tea is the perfect ingredient for healthier skin. You might even notice that some of the natural skincare products that you use contain extracts from the tea plant. The next time your skin needs some extra TLC, brew a cup of green tea and sip away.
- Dark Chocolate. Full of antioxidants which protect against free radicals, good dark chocolate actually promotes skin health. A piece weighing 20 grams daily is a great way to keep your skin looking and feeling its very best. Studies have proven that the cocoa dark chocolate contains helps moisturize skin and prevent sunburns which can still be a threat in the latter months of the year.
Make it a point to nourish your skin from within. The old adage that “You are what you eat,” has never been truer than it is today. Diet plays a big role in how your skin looks and feels. Make it a point to adopt good eating habits as well as a healthy skincare routine. You’ll notice a distinct difference in the texture and appearance of your skin right away.
