5 Superfoods That Give You Amazing Skin

The foods you eat make a difference in the way your skin looks. Foods that are rich in nutrients, low in calories, and have a myriad of health benefits are called superfoods.

Superfoods can have a tremendous benefit on your skin, as well. Here are five superfoods that you can incorporate into your diet now, to promote healthier, younger-looking skin.

1. Olives and Extra Virgin Olive Oil

We need a source of good fat in our diet to; absorb nutrients from our vegetables and fruits, keep our cells supple, skin glowing, mind sharp and mood upbeat. We also need dietary fat in order to burn fat. Extra virgin olive oil contains oleic acid, which helps absorb the omega-3s and other vitamins and nutrients from our food.

2. Green Foods

Green foods are young cereal grasses like barley grass and wheat grass. Nutritionally, they are close cousins to dark green leafy vegetables, but offer greater levels of “nutrient density.” An ounce of concentrated greed foods contains more of the beneficial phytonutrients found in an ounce of green vegetables. Green foods detoxify the body to keep skin clear and radiant.

3. Fish

Wild salmon and other cold water fish (sardines, herring, trout, etc.) are great sources of the protein necessary to maintain and repair the body — including the skin on a cellular level. These fish are high in anti-inflammatory omega 3 essential fatty acids, which keeps skin radiant, supple and wrinkle-free. It also helps keep our moods upbeat and our minds functioning at optimal levels.

4. Green Tea

Green tea contains polyphenols, which help eliminate inflammation-producing free radicals. Polyphenols protect healthy cells from cancer causing DNA damage, while ushering cancer cells to their death. Another scientific finding is the power of green tea polyphenols known as EGCG to reactivate dying skin cells. Researchers consider this reactivation to be a potential benefit to skin diseases such as psoriasis, ulcers, rosacea, wounds, and wrinkles.

5. Beans and Lentils

When it comes to maintaining beautiful skin and keeping unwanted pounds at bay, beans and lentils are a body’s best friend. They are very low-glycemic and unlike sugary, starchy foods, won’t cause a rapid rise in blood sugar. They are anti-inflammatory foods, key in preventing dull, dry, wrinkled sagging skin and body fat.
