They say that beauty comes from the inside out, and when it comes to your skin, the expression might be truer than you think. The foods that you eat can have a huge impact on how healthy and glowing your skin looks. Whether you want to go on a full body detox or just improve your diet, here are three foods that can give you a gorgeous complexion in no time.
1. Blueberries. Blueberries - and all kinds of berries, like blackberries, strawberries and raspberries - are full of antioxidants, which are known to help clear up skin and keep it youthful and healthy. Snack on blueberries in smoothies, pancakes and just on their own.
2. Salmon. Salmon has tons of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essentially for shiny, healthy hair and a glowing complexion. Plus, salmon is low in fat and a healthy way to get protein. Grill some alongside the burgers and hotdogs for a good-for-you summer barbecue alternative.
3. Nuts. Almonds, cashews and other nuts have lots of healthy vitamins and essential fats that are great for helping skin repair itself. They make a filling snack at work or at home!
