Eat your way to great skin

We all get good skin days and bad skin days, and although the odd break out sometimes can’t be helped, our skincare & diet are two large factors that affect your skin. On top of the usual cleansing, toning, moisturiser, face-mask, facial (see past blog posts for skincare tips & recommended products), a good diet is essential for healthy, glowing skin. Here are 5 foods to eat your way to great skin:

1. Avocado
Avocado has been in the limelight amongst the healthy ‘super-foods’ recently and this is for a good reason! It has a great source of vitamin E, which boosts the skin’s vitality & makes your skin glow.

Plus there are so many recipes & dishes that incorporate the green fruit, so you don’t bored of the same taste; salads, avocado on toast, avocado pasta – the possibilities are endless!

2. Water
Not really a food but its no secret that water is good for clearing your skin. It’s one of the cheapest & most effective ways to flush out the toxins in your system, so make sure you have the recommended 8 glasses a day!

3. Beetroot
One not to get on the carpet but worth eating regularly, as the nutrients in this root vegetable is great for skin healing and body cleansing.

4. Kale
Another on trend craze is kale. The leafy greens contain a full range of vitamins as well as manganese, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, protein and phosphorus (phew!). We love adding a handful of kale into a soup for a real skin-clearing tonic.

5. 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.
