5 Foods For Clearer Skin

Clear skin is what most people desire to have and we spend so much money on expensive cleansers, toners, moisturisers etc to help, but did you know that what you eat can have a huge effect on how your skin looks? It's true that what you put in your body is what you get out of it and your skin is the main way to not only see how healthy you are, but what your body wants. These foods can help make your skin the clearest it's ever been!


Sunflower Seeds
Filled with Vitamin E, these little seeds not only taste amazing but also help to protect your skin from sun and environmental damage.
In particular, oily fish as it is high in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats. These aid your skins natural oil barrier and can help your body to produce anti-inflammatory properties which can help with redness, dryness, acne and psoriasis.
Citrus fruits and berries are high in Vitamin C - an antioxidant which can help fade redness from acne in particular. It is also need to help your skin produce collagen which helps to keep skin plump and youthful looking.
High in Vitamins A, D and iron, eggs are a serious skin clearing food! They also a good source of amino acids to help your skin produce collagen and elastin for plump, taught skin and melanin to create an even skin tone and reduce redness
While not technically a food, water and drinking loads of it can help your skin more than anything! Hydrated skin looks and feels healthy and youthful and gives it a glow from within look! Aim for at least 2 litre per day.
Of course, not all of these foods will help everybody's skin as everyone is completely different and each have different skin types etc. However, I would always recommend drinking more water to everyone as I have seen a huge difference in my skin since I consciously started drinking more. Of course, having a good skincare routine will also help your skin massively, it's just a case of finding what works for you
