Forget eating rubbish food and splashing out on cosmetic products to undo the damage to your skin. Reducing bags under the eyes, getting rid of acne and brightening your complexion does not necessarily require a great deal of money and lotion. Simply eating a health promoting diet and knowing which foods are great for your skin will help you get the complexion you have always wanted!
The number one secret (which isn’t so secret) to having great skin is drinking plenty of water. However, there are specific foods which can help too!
Good For: Reducing undereye bags
Why: Bananas are potassium rich. Potassium helps to regulate the fluid levels under the eye reducing puffiness and helping skin appear more taut and fully refreshed.
Good For: Brighter complexion
Why: The vitamin E in avocado gives skin a luminous glow while the vitamin C helps to reduce inflammation, helping skin appear smoother. Avocado oil also contains collagen which helps to improve the texture and tone of the skin resulting in a youthful, radiant appearance.
Food: Alfalfa sprouts
Good For: Acne, skin blemishes
Why: These amazing little sprouts contain valuable, skin clearing nutrients such as calcium, folic acid, magnesium, manganese, potassium, silicon, sodium and zinc. Avocados are also packed full of vitamins making them the perfect food choice to promote evenly-toned, fresh looking and acne free skin.
