Happy New Year! Hopefully, one of your resolutions is to take better care of your skin this year. It is after all, the largest organ of our bodies. Our skin helps to keep us warm or cool us down and protects us by helping to keep out bacteria. So, we should try to protect our skin! We talk a lot about taking care of our skin by moisturizing it and applying sunscreen regularly, which continues to be vital to skin health. The health of our skin also relies on the nutrients that we put into our body. Eating well is equally beneficial to our skin! Here is a list of some foods that positively impact both our overall health and the health of our skin.

Avocados- This fruit is placked with Biotin, which helps keep your hair, skin and nails strong. They also contain a high amount of vitamin E and the good-for-you fats that help keep the skin supple and moist!

Carrots- This delicious vegetable is packed with beta-carotene which is converted into Vitamin A in our bodies! You may have heard that Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that can help fight free radical formation in the skin. Therefore, it help decrease sun damage. Topical forms of vitamin A (also called retinols) are used to treat many skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis and also used as a powerful anti-aging product.

Kiwi- This furry fruit contains vitamin C which helps keep the skin bright and wrinkle free. It can encourage your skin to repair itself better and can even stimulate some collagen growth. Collagen is vital to the elasticity of our skin!

Radishes- This veggie is packed with vitamin A and C, phosphorus, zinc, folate, calcium, selenium and silicon. Some of which helps fight free radical formation on the skin and some just help with a healthy natural glow.

Green Tea- Green tea is full of free radical fighting antioxidants and Polyphenols.

Oysters- Though not liked by all, oysters contain a lot of zinc, which aids in skin cell renewal!

Almonds/Walnuts- Nuts contain omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E, all which keep your hair shiny and your skin smooth and soft.

Tomatoes- You are probably aware that tomatoes have lycopene, which is a great antioxidant for the skin. They also contain asthaxanthin and carotenoids, which help maintain skin elasticity.

Eggs- Lutein is the nutrient present in eggs that is great for the eyes but, lutein also maintains skin elasticity.

Artichokes- Artichokes contain a ton of antioxidants and aid with skin luminosity.

Blueberries- Delicious and they contain tons of antioxidants to help fight premature skin aging!

These are just some examples of healthy foods that can provide positive benefits to your skin! Some foods are more tasty than others... enjoy!
