5 Foods That Make Your Skin Glow January 11 2017, 0 Comments

Your skin is the largest organ on your body. Your body uses your skin to rid itself of toxins. Eating poorly can zap our skin of its natural luster. The key to glowing skin starts on the inside. Here are five foods that make your skin glow:
1. Pumpkin Seeds
Another seed with a powerful skin-beautifying effect, pumpkin seeds get their power from both the beauty mineral, zinc, and essential fatty acids including omega 3, omega 6, and omega 9. Like hemp seeds, they help reduce inflammation in the body. Try them sprinkled on salads, in smoothies, or simply by the handful.
2. Arugula 

This dark, leafy green is an excellent source of two of the keys to gorgeous skin: Vitamin A and sulfur. The chlorophyll in arugula is a potent detoxifier, too.

Try a raw arugula salad topped with the rest of the foods on this list for a delicious dish that will get your skin glowing. 

3. Radish 

Radishes contain a number of minerals and compounds that benefit the skin. They are high in sulfur, silicon, and Vitamin C, which work together to create glowing skin by boosting collagen, strengthening skin, and stimulating the circulatory system 

Slice radishes into salads, or have as a snack on their own or with a dip.

4. Avocados 

This creamy fruit delivers a healthy dose of vitamins on its own. Even better: when you pair avocado with a carotenoid-rich food, such as tomatoes, carrots, or bell peppers, it can help you absorb up to five times more of the antioxidants lycopene and beta carotene.

5. Hemp Seeds

These tiny little seeds are composed of a massive amount of protein, including the sulfur-bearing amino acids: methionine, cysteine, and cystine, which are used to build strong hair, nails, muscle, and skin.

They also have the ideal ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids (1:3), and even include omega 9, which are all strong antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is the cause of many of our skin woes, including blemishes and wrinkles, so adding hemp seeds to your diet can help reduce or prevent those skin issues.

Enjoy them on their own, sprinkled in salads, or blended in smoothies.
