Nutrition is important for both our health and skin. The foods we eat affect the appearance of our skin. So if you're not eating right, your skin will show it.
If you want clear skin, you have to stop eating that weekly McDonald's, babe.
Here are 5 best foods to put into your body for clear, healthy skin.
1. Fatty Fish
Salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines are packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fats in fish reduces inflammation, which causes redness and acne.
They can also make your skin less sensitive to the sun’s harmful UV rays!
2. Leafy Greens
Kale and spinach are packed with antioxidants and Vitamin A. This helps to combat acne by slowing down the production of sebum. The fiber in greens also help to improve gut health and lead to lower levels of inflammation in the body.
You can never have too much vegetables!
Studies show that consuming cow’s milk is associated with more breakouts, as hormones in the milk may lead to inflammation in the body. Substitute it with oat or soy milk, your skin will thank you for it.
4. Green Tea
Green Tea needs no introduction for its skin and health benefits. It's the catechins found in green tea that are powerful antioxidants which can protect your skin against sun damage, reduce redness, and improve skin elasticity.
Green Tea has also found its way into skincare products and can be found in our moisturiser, Idyllic Fields.
Probiotics have an effect on our gut and skin microbiome, it helps to regulate the bacteria in our bodies, preventing overgrowth. Examples of foods rich in probiotics include: yogurt, kombucha, and kimchi.
