TOP 7 FACE-FRIENDLY FOODS

Face-friendly food 1: Berries
Berries act as the perfect healthy skin pick ‘n’ mix as they provide a great combo of
antioxidants and vitamins C and E in an easy package. Vitamin C is really face-friendly
as it helps produce collagen, the facial framework tissue which keeps your complexion
plump and smooth.
Blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries are some of our favourites
and easy as to get into your daily diet, but make sure they are eaten fresh and unheated;
you’ll get the most antioxidants and vitamins that way.
Berries are a great source of skin-friendly nutrients
Face-friendly food 2: Whole grains
Wholegrains are a facial super food as they are fantastic for your digestion,
and when your body is working to get rid of waste and toxins efficiently
it shows on your skin. Go for brown or wholemeal pasta, rice and breads
to get your wholegrains as well increase your intake of fibre.
These foods not only boost digestive transit, but they are also great sources of iron
and another skin-loving nutrient, vitamin B, as well as helping you to feel full and satiated.
Face-friendly food 3: Cucumber
Okay, so you can slice off a couple of rounds and pop them on your eyes too,
but the nutritional properties of cucumber make them a skin-friendly food to eat as well.
Cucumber has high water content and staying hydrated has to be one of the golden rules
when it comes to good nutrition for your skin.
Boost your cucumber intake by including them as crudités, in salads and even in drinks –
cucumber whizzed up with yogurt, mint and a dash of milk makes a delicious Lassi.
Face-friendly food 4: Salmon
Oily fish is super skin-friendly as its rich in the essential lipids (fats) that the skin needs to be healthy.
The fatty acid Omega 3 is your friend when it comes to maintaining a healthy and young-looking complexion
as it maintains skin elasticity and works to keep cell membranes healthy.
Other examples of oily fish include trout, mackerel, tuna, anchovies and sardines.
Face-friendly food 5: Dark leafy greens
Spinach, kale, romaine lettuce, and swiss chard are all great examples of dark leafy greens that are
fantastic for maintaining healthy skin. It’s all to do with their super levels of antioxidant, vitamins A, C, E
and the mineral iron – which is essential for keeping your blood healthy and your skin bright.
If you are not a great lover of greens you can always add them to a smoothie or sneak watercress,
rocket or baby spinach into salads and sarnies to ensure you get your fill.
Face-friendly food 6: Beans
It’s the existence of isoflaves – potent antioxidants – that make beans a fabulous face-friendly food.
Antioxidants are great because they reduce the free radicals in your body (which cause ageing)
and make you look and feel great.  And black beans, chickpeas, lentils and soybeans are good choices of
beans/legumes to incorporate into your diet.
Face-friendly food 7: Extra virgin olive oil
Integral to the Mediterranean diet, extra virgin olive oil can help nourish your skin from the inside out.
High levels of the antioxidant vitamin E and source of the ‘good fats’ are what makes extra virgin olive oil
so skin-beneficial. If you don’t already, try using it in place of your regular cooking oil
and include a drizzle on salads, pasta and pizza.
