Natasha Patel , 20 Aug 2018

While it’s necessary to eat your way to a fitter and healthier body, it’s also essential to include certain foods and fruits into your diet for healthy-looking skin. Different kinds of foods and fruits include certain nutrients and minerals that are essential for the natural “glow” of your skin. Scroll down and take a look at what you need to start adding to your diet.

1. Carrots

We’ve always been told to include carrots into our diet as they improve and strengthen our eyes. But these roots are high in beta carotene, which is an antioxidant. It helps naturally generate vitamin A that protects the skin tissue.

2. Broccoli

Like carrots, broccoli helps protect the skin from damage. It’s rich in potassium and is a great source of folic acid (a vitamin B complex). Broccoli is especially important as it helps strengthen bone tissue.

3. Salmon

Fish is a great source of vitamins and minerals. Salmon is a fatty fish that contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Not only is it a great dietary option due to its protein, vitamin E and zinc content, but it helps keeps the skin moisturised and reduces inflammation.

4. Almonds

Almonds contain a good level of vitamin E. They’re a super food that’s beneficial for the health of the body, skin and hair. The best way to take in all of the nutrients is to soak them overnight and peel off the skin in the morning. It’s recommended to eat about 10 almonds a day!

5. Pomegranate

Known as the anti-aging fruit, pomegranate is rich in antioxidants. It stimulates the skin cells and helps in regeneration to keep wrinkles away.

6. Kale

Kale is loaded with antioxidants, is an excellent source of vitamin C and helps to lower cholesterol. It claims to reduce under eye bags and tighten the skin.

8. Tomatoes

Think of tomatoes as a barrier between your skin and the sun. They include bunch of vitamins and they’re filled with lycopene—that helps take care of the UV rays.

9. Avocados

Avocados are rich in fat-soluble vitamins. It not only are they super moisturising for your hair but the oils within have numerous benefits that fight acne and promote healthy skin.
