Inner Health Brings Outer Beauty

Beauty from the Inside Out

Attaining that beautiful, flawless skin look will take work. Severe issues are best treated by a licensed skin care expert, however, unless you make some necessary changes to your life, some issues will return. Acne, blackheads, dark spots, oily skin, and dry skin are just some of the many issues that can affect your skin. So, what exactly can one do to prevent these skin care issues from happening?

There are several options:

  • Add fruits and vegetables to every meal
  • Take supplements
  • Use skin care products
  • Combine all three for maximum results

Though many would say you only need the skin care products, science has proven that to truly have flawless skin, you have to start from the inside.

Eat Your Way to Healthy Skin

Everyone knows you must eat healthy to live a longer, fuller life. The better you eat, the more likely your weight will stay down and your body will stay slim. Along with these much desired benefits, eating right will make your skin healthy, too.

Makeup can only do so much if the canvas you are painting is not at peak health. To attain this peak health, you want to eat clean and colorful — with vegetables and fruits high in antioxidants and nutrients. The brighter the color, the more nutrients your food will give.

Fruits that are wonderful for the skin include avocados, tomatoes, strawberries, bananas, and even apples.

Vegetables like kale, spinach, arugula, broccoli, sweet potatoes, dark leafy greens and others will provide ample nutrition to fuel your body.

These foods are packed with Vitamins, C, E, A, carotenoids, and selenium — and by adding 2-3 of these to every meal, you can help slow the signs of aging and provide protection from free radicals and toxins. Some veggies that are high in beta-carotene can even protect your skin from sun damage. Selenium is also a mineral that can protect against sun damage, though your daily allowance is only 55 to 70 micrograms.

Though fruits and vegetables are a large part of receiving the vitamins you need, herbs and spices have actually also proven to be effective. Turmeric is a good example, but if you can’t seem to add this spice to your cooking, you can always take this and others as a supplement.


Supplements are more concentrated, so your body absorbs them much quicker. However, you want to be careful with supplements because you could ingest too much of a particular vitamin and cause potential damage, which is the opposite of what you are aiming to meet. Many vitamins are found in the foods you eat, like vegetables and fruits mentioned above. However, using supplements can fill out those holes in your nutrition plan.

Some supplements to try are:

  • Vitamin D3
  • Krill Oil
  • Fish Oil
  • Turmeric with Curcumin
  • Probiotics

Skin Products

There are an immense amount of products on the market to help, treat, and fix skin problems. From face creams, washes, masks — whichever ones you choose, be sure they have the ingredients with all the vitamins you want and none of the stuff you don’t.

Vegetables and fruits can also help in this area — and many are actually sometimes made into face masks. The best ones are usually combined with honey. Even many spas will have recipes that are vegetable and fruit mixes.
