Do you want super skin? Ok, that may be an obvious question. Even if you don’t 100% know what super skin is, it sounds pretty great doesn’t it? Achieving healthy, super skin can feel like a long road for many of us. Since there are so many factors that play into us achieving that result, many people feel frustrated around the idea at all. Of course using the right, quality skin care products consistently is a huge factor to super skin but it doesn’t stop there. What we eat has been found to contribute immensely to our skin’s health and appearance. To help you streamline some of the foods that can help you obtain glowing skin we’re sharing some of the super foods for super skin. Super foods are, well…super so it only makes sense that they would help to get super skin-right?
Avocados have been a trendy food the past couple of years with the rise of popularity in avocado toast and other dishes using avocado as a main ingredient. It’s not just that avocados taste great, but they’re considered a super food. That’s right, we’re giving you even more of a reason to add avocados into your diet! Avocados are actually incredibly beneficial to our skin. They’re loaded with ‘healthy’ fats and omega 9’s. Both of these elements help to give our skin nutrients that have been found to assist in hydration, moisturization and antioxidant benefits. We don’t need to tell you all of those benefits are pretty powerful to achieving super skin.
Turmeric is another ingredient that’s been gaining a lot of air time lately. You may have seen some DIY recipes for face masks yielding turmeric as an ingredient, or smoothies, or even dinner recipes. It’s been everywhere! The reason turmeric has been so popular lately is because of the incredible super food benefits it contains. Turmeric is a super food that’s been found to assist our bodies in many ways, our skin included. One of the main benefits turmeric yields is the ability to assist with inflammation. As you may know inflammation has been found to be one of the main culprits of countless skin concerns. Whether you suffer from acne, signs of aging or anything else inflammation in your skin/body may be to blame. The good news is incorporating more turmeric into your diet, and even using it in the form of a face mask can help you to reap the anti-inflammatory benefits easily.
Another food that we tend to take for granted! Of course blueberries taste great as a healthy sweet treat, but you may not realize they’re actually considered a superfood. As it turns out blueberries are rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants have been found to be one of the most important factors to helping us achieve healthy, glowing, super skin. If you don’t already know, antioxidants are incredible at helping our skin to fight free radicals-which have been found to cause signs of aging and other sign concerns to result. In addition, antioxidants and the benefits of blueberries help to repair and replenish the collagen in our skin.
