Food for a Healthier Complexion

The expression “you are what you eat” that we have all heard of is very cliché yet very true.

The food you take in not only affects you on the inside but it also affects your appearance on the outside. The skin is the largest organ on the body so when you give it proper attention it can keep you looking young and fresh.

Here are a few food items that will help you achieve a healthier complexion.


Strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries are not only delicious, but they are also rich in antioxidants that help keep your skin looking young and fresh. These berries are filled with antioxidants that help protect cells, prevent further damage to the skin, help with premature aging, and help keep your skin looking young and vibrant.


Carrots are a concentrated source of beta carotene, which is basically converted into your body as vitamin A—a powerful anti-aging mineral. Vitamin A helps your skin cells stay healthy to give you a radiant glow. Carrots are also packed with vitamin C which helps the formation of skin collagen.


Guacamole is great for your skin. Avocados have a strong source of vitamins and minerals that help keep one’s skin youthful. In addition to the high source of vitamins C and E, avocados are packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids that prevent skin from drying out.

Brazilian nuts

Many people may not know of this specific nut but you can find it at most markets or Trader Joe’s. These nuts help protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. They can also help with any discoloration or wrinkles your skin may have from California’s hot sun exposure. They have an excellent source of vitamin E, which helps with healthy skin and eyes.

These are just a few of the ways to help keep healthy skin and in the process retain a youthful appearance simply by utilizing some of these tips.
