Best Foods For Clear, Glowing Skin

The truth is that our eating habit has a direct impact on our skin. Foods can have good as well as bad impacts on your skin. So here is a list of foods to include in your diet to have radiant skin:


Sunflower Seeds

A recent review suggests that eating a combination of vitamins E and C may protect the skin against UV damage. A tasty source of vitamin E is crunchy roasted sunflower seeds. Combine them with spinach, which is rich in vitamin C, for a skin-boosting side salad.



By now, you likely know that omega-3 fatty acids are the bomb. Not only do they protect you from cancer and heart disease and boost brain power, but research suggests they are also good for the skin. These powerful nutrients are most commonly found in fatty fish, like salmon, tuna, or mackerel. Besides being a super-tasty and simple dinner, omega-3-containing salmon may also play a role in the prevention of non-melanoma skin cancer.


Olive Oil

Research suggests that including olive oil in your diet can ward off the signs of skin aging. Add olive oil to any dish to prevent early signs of aging.



Studies suggest lycopene found in tomatoes may protect against the sun’s harsh UV rays. That doesn’t mean you should forego your daily sunscreen though! Lycopene is more prevalent in processed tomatoes, like tomato paste or cooked tomato sauce.


Green Tea

Not only will sipping on a glass of warm green tea make you feel refreshed (for about five minutes), it might also soothe your skin. A study found that people who drank a beverage with green tea polyphenols every day for 12 weeks had smoother skin and less sun damage than those who didn’t. Scientists believe that the antioxidants in the tea boost blood flow, oxygen, and nutrient delivery to the skin.


Red Bell Peppers

Research shows that a higher intake of vitamin C is associated with fewer incidences of wrinkles. With 95 milligrams of vitamin C, these sweet peppers are totally worth adding to your omelet, salad, or stir-fry.



If you’ve ever gone to bed after a long night of drinking and woken up with cracked lips, you’ve experienced the havoc that dehydration can wreak on your skin. Obviously, staying properly hydrated contributes to the healthiness of your skin.

Some foods will actually do wonder for your skin. It’s all about balancing the good with the bad ones. Enjoy foods that make you feel good.
