Foods for beautiful skin: what’s missing from your plate?


You are what you eat. You’ve certainly heard this saying a lot, but you only understand the real idea behind it after you understand how your daily choices actually affect your overall well-being.

The main problems we face on a daily basis are the loss of shine, inflammation or excessive dryness of the skin. But all too often, we just want to find a solution just by using skincare. Whatever the reasons behind the problematic skin are, it has to be understood that the matter should be approached not only by external creaming, but also by systematic internal approach.

And that means choosing the right foods that nourish the skin with the necessary vitamins, minerals, amino acids and phytotoxic nutrients. All of these substances support skin structure and help protect it against free radical damage and inflammation, which is mostly caused by excessive sugar and carbohydrate intake.

The healthier you eat, the better your skin looks, says Samantha Heller, nutrition scientist at the New York University Medical Center. In order for the skin to feel well, the food should contain all the nutrients: plenty of antioxidants aka vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and flavonoids.

10 superfoods for your beauty!

Fortunately, you can easily get all of these ingredients by adding superfoods to your daily menu. These are certain foods that contain plenty of vitamins, minerals, compounds, antioxidants and other nutrients.

Although superfoods also help with many other modern human problems, such as fatigue, digestion, excess weight, weak immunity, then today we talk about how certain superfoods can do wonders to your skin.

1. Blueberries

This super-antioxidant-containing superfood helps to fight cell damage and protect your skin from the negative effects of free radicals that can make your skin older. In addition, blueberries are rich in anthocyanins, which strengthen the collagen fibers.

2. Avocado

Avocado is an excellent source of monounsaturated fatty acids, which mainly help keep skin moisture levels and suppress premature aging, usually due to exposure to harmful UV rays. In addition, it contains a wealth of fats that allow the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, which gives even better skin protection from sun damage.

3. Pollen

Pollen has an incredible amount of amazing and rare features, and high consistency of B vitamins, which increases stress tolerance, helps to clear acne, fights wrinkles and signs of aging. The most valuable nutrient in pollen is protein. It contains all the amino acids, including the essential ones needed for skin cells to renew and reconstruct.

4. Goji berries

These little red berries are sometimes referred to as berries for longer life and this is justified. Glutamine contained in goji berries stimulates the production of human growth hormone, a hormone that is partly responsible for the youthful appearance and rapid healing, level of which decreases in time.

Same glutamine is also responsible for the production of glutathione, which is also an excellent anti-aging ingredient of the body. Goji berries also contain 18 amino acids, as well as so-called beauty minerals such as iron, zinc and copper for beautiful skin, hair and nails.

5. Hemp seeds

Hemp seeds are a complete source of protein that supports cell production and repairs skin, hair and nails. They are excellent sources of anti-inflammatory and anti-aging omega fatty acids, including essential fat gamma-linolenic acid, which ensures healthy skin.

Hemp seeds are rich in fiber, iron and zinc, which tend to be another good news for beauty. We like to add hemp seeds to snacks, porridge, salads and desserts to get a nice nutty crunch.

6. Coconut

Coconut is very versatile! Coconut water is not only refreshing, but it can also give a softer and younger skin complexion, especially thanks to its potassium and electrolyte content that nourish and moisturize the skin.

In addition, coconut oil offers natural sun protection, fights bacteria, helps to get softer skin and can heal the gut. In addition, coconut oil contains caprylic acid, which destroys bad bacteria and yeast and fungi that can cause inflammation, digestive problems and pimples.

7. Raw cocoa

Cocoa contains antioxidants that help protect the body from the inside (from heart disease, cancer and other long-term illnesses) and keep the skin healthy. By the way, raw cocoa beans have more antioxidants than green tea and red wine!

8. Chia seeds

It is high time you knew that chia seeds help you get shiny skin, if you do not yet already. Add this little superfood to your everyday menu.

Chia seeds are a good source of cell-strengthening omega-3 fatty acids. This fatty acid reduces inflammation and protects the skin from sun damage. Chia seeds are filled with protein (these amino acids are crucial for having healthy skin, hair and nails) and are a good source of calcium and zinc.

9. Green tea

Green tea is enriched with polyphenol aka epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which, according to research, provides the skin with the protection it needs against harmful UV rays and oxygen radicals. It also has antioxidants, and treats skin with anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor benefits.

10. Olive oil

Olive oil is known as a healthy oil used in a variety of dishes. But you will love it even more for its beauty qualities. This oil helps make your skin shine, especially because of vitamin E.

Make Yourself Shine with Smoothies!

Superfood-enriched smoothies are surely the best way to add nutrients to your daily menu in order to keep your skin youthful. In addition, smoothie is the easiest and most delicious way to easily consume the daily amount of fruit and vegetables.

For example, the Balance and Crunchy superfood mixes contain 12 different superfoods. In addition to previously named blueberry, goji berry, pollen, chia, hemp seeds and coconut, there are still domestic superheroes such as rosehip, sea buckthorn and chokeberry.

Add spoonful of both into a blender with a banana, some of your favorite berries, avocado, and coconut water – and the result is a delicious cocktail!

Here’s one simple recipe you can try out yourself. But it is certainly not enough to drink just one smoothie – try it out, for example for two weeks, and see what kind of changes take place in your body and appearance!
