Best Foods and Diet Plan for Glowing Skin

Best Foods for Glowing Skin

1. Berries
Berries are rich in antioxidants which can protect your skin and keep it firm, glowing and looking all young. Berries delay the process of ageing and restrict excess oil production in the skin.

Turmeric roots and turmeric powder

2. Turmeric

Turmeric kills the harmful bacteria inside and outside your body and it has various antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal properties. You can consume washed and peeled raw turmeric first thing in the morning or while going to bed with a glass of milk. You can also add it to your various recipes.

3. Carrot
Carrots contain high levels of beta-carotene, vitamin A, and antioxidants. They protect your skin from sun damage and prevent premature aging and wrinkles. They also make your skin healthy from the inside by flushing out toxins.

4. Healthy Fats

These include nuts (almond, walnut, macadamia, etc.), seeds (flaxseed, sunflower seed, chia seed, etc.), healthy oils (olive oil, rice bran oil, etc.), and fish and fish oil. These fats are not only great for your body but especially your skin as well. Just make sure you don’t overdo them.

5. Green Leafy Vegetables
Veggies like mustard leaves, lettuce, coriander, parsley, broccoli, and arugula help to rid your skin of dullness and enhance its glow as they are all loaded with antioxidants and essential vitamins and nutrients. You can make a soup out of them or add them to your salads.
