Foods for healthy skin

Food and Drink Lifestyle

There are 101 reasons (not Dalmatians) to eat healthily; one of our favourites is that eating well can help boost your skin’s natural healthy glow. Cheaper than a facial, eating well should be top of the priority list for overall wellbeing and your beauty regime.

 

Fish

You won’t need to “fish” for compliments on your skin if you add fish to your diet. Eating oily fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel fuels your body with friendly omega-3 fats, helping to protect your skin against sun damage whilst keeping toxins out and locking in water and nutrients. Keep it healthy, with this roasted salmon recipe.

Pumpkin seeds

Full of zinc and collagen to help promote skin renewal, you might think twice before throwing these out after pumpkin carving! Learn how to roast pumpkin seeds to use as a snack or keep up the “Bake Off” mood and try baking these delicious pumpkin muffins.

Carrots

No wonder Bugs Bunny has such good fur! Carrots are not just good for seeing in the dark, they also keep your skin healthy and vibrant. Full of beta-carotene, this humble orange veg helps repair skin tissue and protects against the sun. As winter draws in, what better time to try out a new soup recipe?
