Superfoods That Will Make Your Complexion Glowing

Posted October 9, 2015

They say you are what you eat, and that’s especially true when it comes to achieving a healthy, glowing complexion. While makeup can hide a multitude of bad habits, there’s no replacement for the radiance that come along with a healthy, nourished body. Making fruits, vegetables, and whole grains the basis of your diet, limiting alcohol consumption to a drink a day, and avoiding processed and sugar-filled snacks will help keep you looking and feeling healthy, and the addition of a few vitamin-packed superfoods will only make you more radiant, starting with your skin. So what’s on the menu for the best skin of your life?

Salmon: Packed with B12, B3, selenium, and vitamin D, adding salmon to your diet is one of the easiest and most delicious ways to give your skin a boost. In addition to the health benefits you’ll get from this protein and vitamin-packed nutritional powerhouse, salmon is also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation in the body and promote cell membrane health, essential for maintaining skin’s elasticity and clarity. On weeks when you can’t fit this fabulous fish into your meal plan, at-home treatments, like the hyaluronic acid-packed Dorothy Facial Mask, available at Flawless Skin Care Solutions’ Manhattan location, can mimic the same complexion-boosting effects.
Açai: With acai added to the smoothies and juices available on almost every block in New York, this superfood is one of the simplest ways to improve your diet and your skin. Full of antioxidants and heart-healthy oleic acid, the compound that makes olive oil such a healthy choice, this tart berry has been used both internally and externally in South America for centuries to treat skin ailments. Add a few acai berries to your morning smoothie or use them as an alternative to other fruit in your baking and your skin will reap the rewards.

Tomatoes: Used in sauces, soups, and salads, tomatoes are a dietary staple in countries around the world, and for good reason — they’re not only delicious, they’re also one of the strongest weapons against skin damage. Tomatoes are full of lycopene, an antioxidant that may help protect against sun damage and might even help fight off certain cancers. Who knew that your pasta sauce could do all that?
Water: Sometimes the simplest changes to our daily habits can have the most profound effects. At Flawless, the air we breathe is purified into its essential form to create an incredible oxygen facial treatment, while at home, you can get similar skin-clearing results by simply upping your water intake — it’s recommended that adults get eight glasses of the clear stuff each day, but active individuals can enjoy a brighter more radiant complexion by upping that number. This free, all-natural beverage is not only easy to come by pretty much anywhere in the world, it is also one of the most effective methods of detoxing your body. Drinking water improves your circulation, which is essential for maintaining glowing skin, and also helps your kidneys flush out pollutants, giving your skin a major boost in the process.

Perfecting your complexion doesn’t have to be an ordeal —minor dietary changes can make all the difference when it comes to achieving and maintaining gorgeous skin.
