The Healthy Skin Diet

Eat these foods for healthier skin that glows

They say that beauty is only skin deep however, its what you put inside your body that is just as important what you put on the outside, which is why a healthy skin diet is essential if you want beautiful skin that glows. According to Samantha Heller, MS, RD, a clinical nutritionist at NYU Medical Center, everything you eat becomes a part of not only your inner being, but the outer fabric of your body as well. She points out that the healthier the foods are that you consume, the better your skin will look. Eating balanced foods is an important part of a healthy skin diet, which includes consuming more low fat dairy products, fresh fruits and vegetables. Check out 9 Best (And Worst!)

Consuming healthy oils like extra virgin olive oil help keep your skin lubricated and are also good for your heart, while foods like salmon, flax seed and walnuts are also vital to a healthy skin diet because they contain essential fatty acids, which protect your skin from harmful toxins. In addition, they help create healthy cell membranes, which hold water in, giving you plumper and younger-looking skin. Besides diet, daily habits and rituals can affect how your skin looks.

I've lost 95 almost 100lbs, low fat food options are pretty important. I've done the low fat high protein thing for awhile now. You'd be surprised at all the low fat options.
