Eat Your Way to Better Skin

April 14, 2020 3 min read

If you’re spending loads of time and money on your skincare routine, you should consider putting just as much effort into your diet. 

What does my diet have to do with my skin, you ask? 

Well, your skin is an organ and studies have shown that your diet can have a direct impact on the appearance, health, and aging of your skin. 

We’ve put together a guide to help you choose the right food and drink to incorporate into your daily life for healthier skin. 

Drink This

Green tea, assorted spices, and red wine.

Turmeric Tea or “Golden Milk”

To make this detoxifying drink, combine a coffee cup of boiling water with a pinch of crushed black pepper, 1 tablespoon of turmeric, and a tablespoon of raw organic honey.

Turmeric contains curcumin which is an antioxidant with natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects that help to cleanse your system and calm your skin. Combining it with pepper enhances the absorption of curcumin into the bloodstream. 

Green Tea

Green tea can help protect your skin against damage and aging because it contains compounds called catechins. Studies have shown that drinking green tea every day can help improve moisture, reduce roughness, and promote the thickness and elasticity of your skin. 

Red Wine

Red wine contains proanthocyanidins which are antioxidants typically found in red grapes that work to prevent sunburn and wrinkles. It also contains resveratrol, which doctors say is a powerful antiaging ingredient

As if you needed to be told, go ahead and pour a glass of red wine during dinner or at the end of the day. 1 glass a day will help keep the wrinkles away!

Eat This

An assortment of foods that are good for your skin.

Salmon

Fatty fish like salmon are super rich in Omega-3, zinc, and vitamin E are essential for healthy skin, keeping it supple and moisturized.

If you suffer from dry skin, you might have an Omega-3 deficiency so it’s important to incorporate more fatty fish into your diet.

I love using this recipe for baked salmon. It’s also a great food for meal prep if you’re into that. 

Avocados

If you didn’t already have an excuse to inhale avocado toast, here it is: avocados are packed with fatty acids that help protect your skin from sun damage, keep it moisturized and elastic.

One of my favorite ways to add avocado into my diet is by making avocado toast topped with an egg for breakfast or lunch because it’s a quick and easy way to make a satisfying, yet healthy meal. 

Sweet Potatoes 

Sweet potatoes are packed with beta carotene which is what gives them their orange color. Your body converts it into vitamin A, which acts as a natural sunblock to help prevent sun damage and signs of aging.

Sweet potatoes are so versatile, you can have them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I love making these amazing sweet potato buddha bowls.

Eggs

The amino acids found in protein-rich foods like meat or eggs are the building blocks of collagen production. Eggs also contain vitamin A and D which aid in your body’s production of new cells, including skin cells.

There are endless ways to cook eggs, but my favorite is soft boiling them!

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate contains flavonoids which are powerful antioxidants that protect skin from sun damage. It also contains manganese which helps your body absorb other nutrients.

Look for dark chocolate containing more than 70 percent cacao and low sugar content, as sugar is harmful to the skin if consumed too much. 


Incorporating nutrient-rich foods and drinks into your diet is vital to more than just your skin. Living a healthy lifestyle leads to a feeling of confidence and beauty on the inside and out. You might find that you not only have healthy glowing skin but are also using less makeup which means you’ll have time to focus on the more important things in life.
