Australians spend over $8 billion on skincare products every year, but when it comes to achieving a truly flawless complexion, it’s vital to nourish your skin from the inside.
According to Sheila Zhou, expert Scientist at USANA, leading producer of high quality supplements, “Most people don’t realise diet is a major factor when it comes to having healthy skin. Older cells are constantly shedding and being replaced by new ones, meaning nutrients and hydration is essential to support this fast paced growth process. By consuming the correct foods, paired with a regular skin care routine, you can count on being blemish free.”
Ms. Zhou shares her expert tips on which foods will help you achieve flawless skin:
1. Chocolate. It sounds too good to be true doesn’t it?! Many of us have grown up believing chocolate causes break outs, but it actually contains numerous minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium which are great for your skin. Also, chocolates rich in flavanols provides dietary antioxidants that confer photo-protection from within, and helps keep everything plump and elasticised.
2. Turkey. Turkey meat has a high level of an ingredient called selenium, a mineral that plays a major role in the health of developing skin cells. Recent studies also show selenium has the ability to prevent sunburned cells from forming on human skin. So make this meat more than a Christmas classic, and enjoy the benefits all year around.
3. Sweet potato. When it comes to vegetables that banish blemishes, sweet potato is the ultimate choice. It is loaded with retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, and this particular ingredient works to speed up the cell renewal process. Not only does this act as a natural exfoliate, but it also nourishes the skin underneath, a win win!
4. Sardines. Whether they’re fresh or canned, sardines are a great way to prevent age spots and wrinkles. This particular fish is loaded with anti-inflammatory omega-3 essential fatty acids and iron which help the body transport oxygen to skin follicles.
5. Spinach. Green vegetables are known for their health benefits, but what most people don’t know, is that spinach may help to reduce the risk of skin cancer. As it is rich in folate, vitamin A, C, E, and carotenoids, spinach may help boost the skin's natural defence against damage caused by UV rays, helps with DNA repair and cell regeneration. So make sure you slip, slop, slap, and spinach.
Along with these foods, Sheila Zhou, USANA Scientist, also recommends the following products to help your skin look and feel its best:
USANA’s Rice Bran Polisher is a gentle exfoliate that contains natural fruit enzymes, beta-hydroxy acid, and rice-bran beads. It removes impurities and dead skin cells while aloe and other natural emollients nourish and refresh, leaving skin smoother and clearer.
Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet. Use only as directed. Always read the label.
