Skin struggles? Eat these.

Beautiful food that nourishes you from the inside out brings you beautiful skin. These are our faves at the minute- try to bring some of these into your day and you'll be seeing a different glow in no time ✨. 
 Here's why they work, and some ideas to fit them into your day! 


Dark Green & Leafy Veggies


Dark green and leafy veggies are packed with antioxidants like vitamins C and E, and beta-carotene- these help to prevent aging and stress on the skin. They're also excellent sources of many skin-friendly nutrients.. vitamin A, zinc, and selenium to name a few. These contribute to a healthy complexion and glow. Dark green and leafy vegetables are also typically rich in dietary fiber, which aids in digestion for eliminating waste, promoting a clearer complexion.
Foods + Ideas
 Spinach (green smoothie/spinach pancakes/spinach & halloumi salad/spinach & matcha pancakes). Kale (chinese style kale/kale crisps). 

Foods Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids



Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids help to flush inflammation from your skin and body, and also regulate your skin's oil production- two things that can massively help with breakouts. Omega-3 fatty acids also help to maintain the skin's natural moisture barrier, giving you that naturally dewy look. They also actually support the production of collagen in the skin- the protein that gives your skin its youthfulness and elasticity.

Foods + Ideas 
Salmon (smoked salmon & avocado on toast/salmon spring rolls/homemade sushi). Not a food!-  but our cleansing balm is packed with Omega-3s that topically nourish your skin. Flaxseed and Chia Seeds (chia pudding/flaxseed pudding/homemade granola/raspberry chia jam). Edamame (noodle salads/teriyaki bowl/sushi bowl). 

Yellow & Orange Fruits



Yellow and orange fruits like mangoes and apricots are rich in unique antioxidants known as carotenoids and flavonoids. These protect your skin from free radical damage- something that can cause aging, dark spots and other skin problems. They're also very high in vitamin C- one of the main building blocks of your skin's collagen. Plus, they're high in water content, helping to keep your skin hydrated and plump.
Foods + Ideas
Mangoes (freshly sliced/orange smoothie/salsa/mango popsicles). Papayas (salad/papaya smoothie bowl/grilled with honey/papaya boat). Yellow Bell Peppers (stuffed/salad/hummus boats/salsa). 

Healthy Proteins



Proteins are the building blocks of collagen, the protein that provides your skin with its structure and elasticity. Getting enough healthy proteins in helps to maintain your skin's firmness and radiance. Protein is also essential for repair and healing, and can help to minimize acne scars. Some protein sources like lean meats and seafood provide antioxidants zinc and selenium, which protect your skin from stressors.
Foods + Ideas
Lean meats (chicken avocado toast/grilled chicken skewers/shrimp stir fry). Legumes (lentil soup/chickpea salad/hummus/black bean tacos). Tofu (stir fry/noodle soup/tofu scramble).
