6 Foods for Glowing Skin

For eats that let you look as good as you feel, here is the ultimate healthy menu.

I love the idea that what you put in your body can not only fuel your energy and support overall wellness, but also show up in a radiant complexion and flawless skin.

Omega 3. Wild Salmon is one of the best food sources for omega-3 fatty acids and protein. This fish is also known for its dialed-up levels of vitamin D and selenium. Sardines, oysters and mackerel also supply this beauty food. Not a fish lover? One 200-calorie serving of walnuts has 2776 mg of omega-3 essential fatty acids and is a great source of protein and copper, a mineral that supports collagen production.

Coconut oil. Slather it on the skin or suck down a spoonful and glow! Blend up a cucumber in your green smoothie or blend it with a little water or aloe (it didn’t make the list but this is way up there!) and use the fresh cool mask as a pick me up.

Ginseng. This plant extract provides essential nutrients and has antioxidant properties. Use it as an oil mask for a natural toner, or add it to your morning tea.

Turmeric. Add a few shakes to lemon water, add it to protein rub or blend it in a smoothie. Mix turmeric with equal parts honey and yogurt and use as a DIY facemask. This mask moisturizes and exfoliates skin and will leave your face feeling fresh and clean.

Spinach. This leafy green contains a slew of nutrients that support skin health. Sip a green juice while on-the-go.

Lemon. Rich in Vitamin C, this citrus fruit will help your body purge excess water weight and balance the sodium and potassium levels in your cells. Add a slice of lemon to a mug of warm water in the morning to support healthy digestion or squeeze onto your salad when dining out.
