5 Foods for Glowing Skin! Beauty from the Inside-Out!

Beauty from the inside out is as important, if not more than beauty from the outside in. In the long run it's more important to pay attention to your lifestyle and the food fueling your body instead of using x amount of products to get the results you want. Ex. Acne might be a cause of eating too much sugar and starchy foods. Possible solutions: 1. Try cutting back your intake of these substances to clear up your skin or 2. Buy topical creams to solve the problem temporarily. Now I know I'm a product junkie and I need my beauty fix (as I'm sure you do as well) I'm just suggesting to find a balance, (the best of both worlds) for incredible results. I am a huge believer of the phrases: "Less is More" when it comes to almost everything including the amount of products you use on your skin, and "Beauty from the Inside-Out" since natural beauty comes from within.  I was inspired to write this post after coming across an interesting article "5 Foods For Glowing Skin!" discussing food that has an effect on beauty.                               


You can read the article here: http://shine.yahoo.com/beauty/5-foods-glowing-skin-153400356.html but I'm going to give you a little summary!

"Sweet Potatoes keep your skin silky smooth!" They are rich in beta-carotene and, when ingested, are converted into vitamin A, a prime factor in keeping skin touchably soft."
Kiwi.







"Kiwi and any food with lots of Vitamin C like kiwi, oranges, and grapefruit, is a big skin savor. Women who had a diet high in Vitamin C food had noticeably less dryness and fewer wrinkles."








Dark chocolate.
"Enjoying a small piece of dark chocolate will provide high levels of cocoa flavanols, which have been associated with softer, more hydrated skin."






Yogurt."Yogurt makes your skin and nails glow! Thanks to the biotin found in yogurt, it helps increase nail strength."










Nuts and seeds."Nuts and Seeds contain anti-inflammatory and immunity-enhancing nutrients, including vitamin E, that help reduce skin flare-ups."









Cool! Right? Try adding these foods to your diet and see what happens =)
