In this article, Kimberly Snyder discusses some foods that can make your skin smooth, flawless and beautiful. Let’s find out what these foods are!
Kimberly says that this she has been discussing for so many years. It is even featured in one of her books, ‘The Beauty Detox Foods.’ It is a super berry. It comes from South America and is loaded with antioxidants. It is free of sugar and can be added to smoothies.
You can blend it with hemp milk or almond milk and to have an amazing drink that will heal you and give a brighter complexion to your skin.
Vitamin E consumption prevents this damage and protects our skin. It helps keep the skin bright, rejuvenated and fresh. Almonds are as good as almond milk. It’s so tasty that you can have it any time.
You can add it in your tea. You can even warm it and add turmeric or cloves. You can soak almonds in water overnight and then, rinse it. Have it as a snack. It makes for a really great food for the skin.
Kimberly’s third pick is chia seeds. These are hydrophilic in nature and absorb plenty of water. Put them into water and they attain a gel-like consistency. You can add this gel to your smoothie and call it chia pudding.
But, what makes these chia seeds great for the skin? Well, they are laden with omega-3 fatty acids. These fats keep the skin supple and smooth. Without these fats, the skin becomes dry and gets cracked. The skin also loses its suppleness. These provide antioxidants and minerals. It is great for your skin.
Pineapple is rich in vitamin C. And not only this, it has an enzyme, called bromelain, which works as a detoxifying agent. It helps digest protein well. When the body is free of toxins and is deeply cleansed, our skin looks more beautiful.
You can even eat it on an empty stomach, says Kimberly. Summers are that period of a year when you need to take hydrating fruits. And, what else could be best than pineapple!
Another skin-friendly food, recommended by Kimberly, is tomatoes. Tomatoes are just fantastic for the skin. You can even grow them. These have lycopene – an amazing antioxidant. Lycopene is particularly beneficial for warmer months, when you need to protect yourself from sun damage.
Kimberly mentions of a study, which indicated that the fraction of sunburns got reduced by 40% after the consumption of 40 gm of tomatoes. This provided around 16 mg of lycopene for a period of 10 weeks. Research also suggested that lycopene is better absorbed when cooked, so you can have tomato sauce.
Kimberly hopes that this list would help people to keep their skin healthy during summers, or rather round the year. You must include these five foods in your dietary regimen if you want to have a flawless skin.
You can find them easily. One can reserve the almond milk or make it fresh. You may also stock acai, so that you can have it handy whenever you need them. Likewise, chia seeds can also be stored well for a few weeks.
