At SKINICIAN we are firm believers that you look good from the inside out, especially when it comes to your skin health and appearance. We have put together a list of a few of our favourite SKIN nourishing superfoods.
First up is fatty fish:
Fatty fish is an amazing source of Vitamin E, an important anti-oxidant for your skin. It is essential in protecting your skin against damage from free radicals and inflammation. Fatty fish is also rich in omega 3 fatty acids. These help to keep your skin thick, supple and moisturised.
Number 2 is everyone's favourite, avocado:
This genius fruit has quickly become a favourite amongst skincare enthusiasts. They are high in healthy fats that aid hugely keeping skin flexible and moisturised.
Number 3 is sweet potatoes:
Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene functions as a provitamin A, which means it can be converted into vitamin A in your body. It acts as a ‘natural kind of sunblock’ by protecting skin from sun exposure. (Don’t forget that you also need to wear an SPF when you’re in the sun)
Number 4 is brown rice:
Rich in selenium, antioxidants and minerals, this superfood will help to keep your skin soft and smooth. As a complex carbohydrate it can also help to regulate blood sugar levels, this can help to prevent premature ageing.
