Hey Foodies welcome back, I can't believe the weekend is nearly here; well I'm quite excited as its my birthday on 22nd August whoop whoop; I'm ageing gracefully and getting younger by the day. Leo's rock :-)
Now have you ever wondered why your skin is not as glowy as you'll like it, perhaps you are not eating right. Now eat yourself beautiful with the below foods for glowing spot-free skin.. Thank me later..:-)
-Almond Milk- Dairy is an inflammatory and when you consume too much, it can aggravate skin redness and acne so next time unsweetened almond milk which is packed with loads of vitamin E which is not only great for your skin, it also helps keep your hair and nails conditioned.
-Dark Chocolate- Has lots and lots of antioxidants, good-quality dark chocolate contains less sugar and fat than your average chocolate bar.
-Salmon- As we all know, Omega-3 fatty acids can do wonders for your skin but oily fish like salmon, mackerel and sardines are among the top sources. They help fight skin inflammation and also help preserve collagen in your skin to keep you wrinkle-free and baby-soft.
*please note that you should limit these fish whilst pregnant*
-Spinach-Spinach is packed with memory-boosting, anti inflammatory benefits and is a great alternative way of getting your daily dose of Omega-3 if you're not a fish lover like me.
-Honey- Amazingly full of antioxidants, antibacterial and extremely mositurising. Honey is not just good for slathering on toast, its is also really good to use as a face mask for a pore-unclogging treat that will leave your skin looking radiant.
Fresh Tomatoes- Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant that protects skin from sun damage. They are also rich source of Vitamins A and C.
Avocados- Great for guacamole, perfect for mashing up and using as a mask for your skin and hair. The Omega-9 fats and Vitamin E will make your skin glow like never before.
Coconut Oil- With a high burning temperature and fats your body can metabolise fast, coconut oil is great to rub on the skin as a natural, hydrating mosituriser that will melt into your skin leaving you feeling soft.
Tumeric- Part of the ginger family, looks like curry and its something most of us avoid. However it has brilliant antiseptic qualities leaving your skin feeling fresh and gentle.
Water- The best of them all, yes its the oldest trick in the book but keeping hydrated will stop you from overloading on sugary drinks and plump out your skin for a flawless glow.
I hope the above helps? Now let me know what your top beauty food tips are.
