Feed Your Face for Healthy Skin

Feed Your Face for Healthy SkinAre you truly what you eat? When it comes to the health of your skin, you certainly are.
Just as food affects your heart, your cholesterol level and your blood pressure, food affects the health of your skin as well. Potions and lotions can do their best to help you look better from the outside in, but eating right can truly nourish the skin from the inside out.
For a head to toe beauty boost, be sure to eat a wide variety of foods from all the food groups. Some particularly super skin standout foods include:


Combine as many good-for-your-skin foods as you can for tonight’s dinner. How about grilled salmon brushed with olive oil, with a side of couscous loaded with diced fruit and berries?
SeafoodYou probably know that omega-3 fatty acids are good for your heart — but did you know they’re good for your skin too? Omega-3s are actually a group of several nutrients, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), none of which the body can produce on its own.They’re found mainly in coldwater fish (as well as walnuts, flaxseed and some green vegetables such as kale) and help keep the cell membrane strong (the skin is made up of cells, and the cell membrane is the outside layer of the cell), preventing harm from the outside from getting in.
