"A healthy diet can go a long way in your quest for flawless skin. Here are five skin-loving foods worth snacking on."As the saying goes, beauty starts from the inside out, and that holds especially true when it comes to your diet. Of course, an effective skin care routine with the right products goes a long way in keeping your complexion clear and healthy, but topicals can only do so much. A variety of other lifestyle factors play a role too: How well you sleep, how stressed out you are, and, spoiler alert, what you eat. A well-balanced diet isn’t just good for your overall health (and waistline), it can also do great things for your skin. So, the next time you reach for a snack, consider incorporating any—or all—of these foods that are good for your skin.
We get it, the onslaught of kale everything is a lot, but it legitimately is a great food for healthy skin. It contains both of those important vitamins A and C we talked about before, plus lutein and zeaxanthin (say that five times fast), nutrients that can help neutralize skin-damaging free radicals. Kale, yeah.
The bottom line: There’s a clear connection between what you eat and how your skin looks. Skinsei conducted a four-year study, tracking the overall diet habits — and skin appearance — of consumers, to determine exactly how food impacts your complexion, both positively and negatively. Coupled with other researches and clinically validated studies, we were able to incorporate all this information into our product recommendation algorithm to determine exactly what type of skin care you need…and how this varies whether your guilty pleasure is chocolate or cheese (or both).
