Have you noticed that your skin is looking dull and sluggish lately? A good start to get your skin back to looking flawless is by taking a closer look at your diet and incorporating a few powerful ingredients.

You have probably heard how eating right is great for your health, mind and body, but it also does wonders for your skin. The more good stuff you put into your body, the better your skin will look since your skin’s health is an indicator of what’s happening inside your body.

Here are some tips on how to get flawless skin. You should be able to notice a difference in just seven days:

1. Add avocado

Avocados are yummy treats and are a great source of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps sooth dry skin. And if you really want to up your vitamin E intake, add in things like olive oil, seeds, nuts, whole grains and wheat germ to your diet for even more beautiful skin.

2. Eat bananas

Not only are bananas a delicious fruit, but they’re also a great way to get in some much needed vitamin C needed to maintain healthy skin. But they also contain trace mineral silica, which your body uses to make connective tissue collagen, which firms your skin and keeps it from looking saggy and old.

3. Munch on carrots

Carrots are amazing snacks that are healthy and are packed with beta-carotene, which is a precursor to vitamin A, which promotes your skin’s maintenance and repair.

4. Load up on berries

Berries are super delicious and another source of vitamin C, which aids in collagen production for your skin. They’re also filled with antioxidants that protect from free radicals damaging your skin (which cause wrinkles).

5. Eat oily fish

Get in some omega-3 fats by eating oil fish like trout, salmon and mackerel to help keep your skin feeling silky soft and supple. And if you don’t like fish, you can still get your omega-3 intake with flax oil, nuts, seeds or a fish oil supplement.

  • Thank you for such a useful article!
    Sometimes we forget how much of an impact our diet can have on the things one would least expect.
    I much prefer a natural alternative to chemical “miracle” creams that are expensive & do not deliver the results they promise.
