Best Snacks for Beautiful Skin


Here are 6 healthy snacks you should add to your diet for beautiful skin.

Blueberries


Blueberries have a host of skin cleansing properties. Blueberries are one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world and one of the #1 antioxidants. In addition to their unrivaled antioxidant powers, Blueberries are a good source of pectin which helps clear intestinal toxins that may contribute to acne Plus, their high level of Vitamin C slows the aging process, keeping your skin young and fresh for longer.

Kiwi


This small, brown, fuzzy fruit is loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants. Vitamin C is beneficial for keeping the skin young and vibrant. It is an essential ingredient required for the production of collagen. Collagen is a connective protein required for keeping the skin firm and supple. Consuming kiwi fruit juice on a regular basis stimulates the development of new cells in the skin layers and helps prevent wrinkles. You can also use the kiwi peel as an exfoliant . The peel of the kiwi fruit contains enzymes which exfoliate the dead skin cells from the skin. Simply peel the kiwi fruit and scrub the skin with the inside of the peel.

Green Tea


Anti-oxidant rich green tea helps reduce redness in the face for people who suffer from rosacea. It’s a wonderful anti-inflammatory that everybody should be drinking. Green tea catechins are anti-bacterial and can decrease hormone activity. This means green tea is an effective way to control acne. Try switching your morning coffee to this equally impressive energy-booster a few times a week.

Walnuts


Aside from filling a hunger gap, walnuts is also one of the beauty secret in many skin products. Walnuts are powerhouses of omega-3 fatty acids that helps lock-in moisture and nutrients in the skin, making it plump and glowing. Furthermore, healthy fats found in most nuts and seeds reduces the skin inflammation and protects the skin against harmful UV rays.


Chia is a powerful source of Alpha Lipoic Acid: a powerful antioxidant that helps to minimize fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores. It has been clinically proven to help the driest skin. Chia seeds significantly increase skin hydration. You can easily add chia seeds to your yogurt or smoothies.

Yogurt


One cup of low-fat yogurt has more calcium than a cup of fat-free milk, which is great for your posture, nails, and teeth. Yogurt contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, that dissolves dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliation not only helps to create a natural glow but it also prevent breakouts.
