We all know that real beauty starts from within – beginning with what you eat. Fruit and vegetables contain vitamins and minerals vital for our health and wellbeing, are a treat for the tastebuds, and are packed with skin-boosting goodness. Here is our roundup of our favourite three vegetables for healthy skin.
This humble green veg is a staple for many of us when it comes to dinnertime. Fantastically is full to the brim with vitamins such as vitamin C which contains skin-glowing antioxidants; vitamin E which is known to bring shine and glow to hair and skin; as well as omega 3 fatty acids which can prevent premature ageing and dryness. Go green!
Not only are they delicious, but yes, sweet potatoes are also great for your skin. They are packed with anti-inflammatory vitamins like vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin E. All of these will encourage healthy, glowing skin, all while supporting your immune system. So don’t forget to load up on sweet potatoes next time you go grocery shopping (try making them into sweet potato fries, trust us).
Tomatoes, while technically a fruit, are mostly considered to be in in the vegetable arena by many. They are a fantastic addition to your diet either as part of a sauce, stuffed with couscous, or as a juicy snack. Just like broccoli and sweet potatoes, tomatoes are full of vitamin C, which cares for your skin. They also contain plenty of lycopene, which helps to protect you from UVA damage and contain powerful antioxidants to soothe and repair skin.
