4 Foods To Eat To Improve Your Skin Complexion

Monday, February 13th, 2012


Looking for ways to combat acne and improve your complexion? If yes, this article will help you eat better to improve the health of your skin with 4 skin super foods. Read to get started on your perfect skin diet.




Almonds are seeds but most people believe they are nuts. Almonds are full of vitamin E, which helps block the sun from harming your skin. If you consume 20 almonds a day, you will suffer from sunburn less. Vitamin E helps protect your skin cells from UV light and helps prevent skin cell damage from environment elements. If you do not like almonds, try 2 Tbsp of peanut butter.




 Carrots are wonderful vegetables. They can clear up breakouts because of vitamin A. Vitamin A prevents overproduction of cells in your skin’s out layer. Without vitamin A, dead cells and sebum will clog your pores. Vitamin A is also wonderful because it reduces the chances of skin-cancer cells developing. You should eat 16 baby carrots a day. If you do not enjoy eating carrots, have 1 cup of meal or cheddar cheese instead.


 Dark Chocolate


Dark chocolate is filled with Flavonols, antioxidants that reduce roughness in your skin and protect your skin from sun damage. Dark chocolate gives you better skin texture and makes your skin more resistant to UV rays. Eat a few ounces of dark chocolate a day. If you are not a fan of dark chocolate, eat blackberries, blueberries, cherries, and raspberries.




 Eat spinach as much as you can to prevent cancer. Leafy greens prevent skin tumors. They also repair and maintain your DNA, making it easier for your skin cells to renew themselves. Not to mention, the water in spinach and other green make your skin wrinkle less because the water penetrates cell membranes. If you do not enjoy eating spinach, eat collard greens.
