Beautiful Skin Inside-Out
Eating breakfast can help reduce hunger throughout the day. Maybe you’re thinking if I skip breakfast, I can Want beautiful skin? Sure, sunscreen helps to keep skin healthy and beautiful, protecting it from the outside, but certain foods can protect it from damage, inside-out. Below are just a few:
Vitamin C rich foods (oranges, strawberries, kiwis, bell peppers, broccoli, pineapples) may help keep wrinkles at bay and promote skin elasticity, resulting in firmer skin! Look for foods that are high in fiber for an extra healthy boost.
Omega-3 fatty acids protect both your skin and your heart! Research suggests that omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon may protect against harmful UV damage caused by the sun. Aim to eat at least 2 servings of fatty fish per week. Sources include salmon, halibut, herring, oysters, fortified eggs and dairy, flax, walnuts and kale.
Beta Carotenoids are yellowish-orange pigments that convert to vitamin A when in the body. Not only do they promote healthy eyes and immunity, they act as sunscreen against UV rays. Sources include carrots, spinach, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cantaloupe and winter squash.
Water is the body's best elixir. It helps flush out unwanted toxins, promoting cell function and health. Even better, water is calorie-free!
Like everything in life, moderation is key. Be careful to not overdo anything as "too much of a good thing may be a bad thing." Beautiful skin starts within. So why not start by feeding it right?
We may not all be breakfast people, but we certainly should try to be! What’s the worst that can happen? We feel better about ourselves because we know we’ve done our bodies justice in feeding it right?
