8 Superfoods for a Luminous Glow!

You are what you eat! There’s no denying this fact. But often we relate the phrase to our weight. But it does not stop there. The condition of your skin is also greatly affected by what you eat. Yes we all know that eating chocolate might cause a few spots here and there, but eating the right kinds of foods will not only keep your body in shape, but will dramatically clear your complexion, leaving your face bright, fresh and youthful. Here are some of the best foods for your skin.

    

Garlic

Garlic is full of a naturally occurring chemical called allicin, which, when digested, reacts with the blood to create a product capable of killing harmful bacteria and viruses in the body, including those which cause acne and other skin infections.


Artichoke

Regular consumption of these woody, fibrous vegetables has been linked to healthier skin, and in particular, improved skin luminosity and is frequently used as an herbal remedy in creams and cosmetics because of their high antioxidant potency.


Cottage Cheese

For a high-protein, selenium-packed, skin clearing boost, consider introducing cottage cheese into your diet.


Eggs

Especially the yolks are full of skin clearing selenium, zinc and protein, as well as plenty of vitamins.


Mackerel

If you want a glowing, radiant complexion and spot-free skin, increase your intake of oily fish, like mackerel. Each fillet is loaded with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), both of which combat acne inflammation, as does.


Salmon

The high protein found in salmon can help to speed up the skin’s natural healing process.


Peppermint

A cup of peppermint tea is known for its potent healing and calming properties. It helps to aid digestion, relieve stress, treat headaches and clear sinuses, and is seriously good for the skin, too.


Dark Berries

Not only are berries jammed with skin clearing antioxidants, but they’re packed with fibre too: great for staving off hunger pangs and regulating insulin production.
