Beauty is complicated, especially with some beauty products containing potentially harmful ingredients. So it’s in your best interest to start incorporating more natural methods to maintain your skin. Aside from consuming heart-healthy foods and maintaining hydration, eating a diet fit for your skin is of the utmost importance as well. Healthy skin is a win, both cosmetically and medically speaking, so why not eat the foods necessary for it?

Tomatoes

This incredibly versatile fruit comes in a multitude of forms. Whether cherry, plum, stewed, or green, vegetables are as tasty as they are beneficial for skin. High in vitamin C, which is essential for collagen production, this fruit will provide a person with adequate nutrients that will, in turn, prevent blemishes, wrinkles, sagging skin, and even inhibit the growth of cancerous melanoma.

Coconut Oil

You might be wondering how coconut oil can help you get healthier and better-looking skin and how you can incorporate it into your diet, but the answers are quite simple and tasty. The fatty acids found in coconut oil reduce inflammation, resulting in firm skin that is healed from any blemishes from the inside out. Additionally, coconut oil contains a plethora of antioxidants that work to create a more youthful looking appearance.

 

While eating coconut oil on its own is a bit much, working it into daily meals, like a marinade for fish or chicken, putting it in desserts, or even making a smoothie will mask its taste while enriching the meal.

 

Dark Chocolate

Okay, it's time to get excited over the fact that you can eat chocolate and concurrently improve your health. High in antioxidants and bioactive compounds, dark chocolate contains flavonoids that promote blood flow to the skin and improve its density and elasticity while simultaneously protecting it from the sun.

 

Eggs

This breakfast staple can be used in practically every recipe in existence. Its versatility has allowed scientists to discover its many benefits, including those for the skin. Rich in antioxidants and proteins, eggs have been described as one of the healthiest foods on the planet--a superfood, if you will.

 

Nuts, Specifically Almonds, and Walnuts

Aside from containing tons of protein, nuts have components that have been known to improve the appearance of skin. While people consume nuts on their own or grind them into powder to incorporate into other foods, they also use them in soaps and extract oil from them for skin massages.

 

Conclusively, healthy skin is not just achievable with beauty products but by just eating the right foods. Those rich in protein, fatty acids, vitamins A, B, C, and E, and antioxidants are guaranteed to boost the production of healthy skin cells, thus resulting in that sought-after complexion.
