👉 Skin that is healthy from the inside glows from the outside.” – can this be considered as the modern day adage?

With heavy pollution and environmental factors like the harsh sun, the stress of balancing work and family life together, along with unhealthy snacking and intake of junk food, glowing skin has become an elusive concept for us. These days, most of us complain about blemishes, acne, and pimples. Makeup only hides them, but a healthy diet keeps them at bay. If we can bring some modifications in our diet and follow the basic CTM (Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing) regimen, it is possible to acquire glowing skin naturally.

Fruits and vegetables are the most important food items that could help you achieve blemish and acne-free skin. They contain skin-friendly components that help in rectifying our skin problems from the inside out. Hence, these ‘beauty foods’ will not only keep your body healthy, but also will help you achieve glowing skin. To add to that, they help to maintain the body’s hydration levels at optimum, thus aiding in achieving better skin health.

👉 Fruits 🍒🍉🍇

Mangoes are rich in antioxidants and vitamin A, which prevent premature aging, retain the skin’s elasticity, and grow new skin cells.Banana is rich in vitamins A, B, and E and prevents premature wrinkling of the skin. Papaya helps shed all the dead skin cells and clears your skin of all impurities.

👉 Healthy Fats

Foods rich in unsaturated fats, omega-3, and omega-6 fatty acids are essential for providing the skin with a healthy dose of natural oils (good fats), which in turn reduce inflammation, acne, scaly skin, and redness. We can acquire smooth, healthy and glowing skin through consumption of nuts like walnuts, hazelnuts, and almonds and fish like salmon, tuna, trout, and herring. These are the perfect sources of ingredients required for a glowing skin.
