How To Nourish Healthy Skin

Most people are not aware that our skin is considered to be one of our main detoxification organs along with the liver, kidneys and colon.  So the expression "we are what we eat" is especially true when we talk about our skin.  It is unusual for people to be 100% truly happy with their skin.  Common complaints include skin that is too dry, too oily, too wrinkled, too many blemishes, too blotchy or too pale.  Genetics plays a huge role in the appearance of our skin as well as environmental exposures, however, one of the biggest factors that we have control over is what we choose to put into our bodies.  Here are the top 10 super foods that have been shown to nourish our skin and prevent the aging process:

  • Green tea
  • Olive oil
  • Avocado
  • Green vegetables
  • Berries
  • Garlic
  • Nuts (walnuts and brazil nuts)
  • Fish
  • Whole grains (rye, barley, brown rice, oats)
  • Melons, especially watermelons (including the seeds)
  • Beans
