First and foremost, every person has different nutritional needs. However, incorporating more nutrient-rich foods that can benefit the skin is a healthy choice for just about anyone.

So, if you’re interested in adjusting your diet for a better skin health, consider starting with more of these twelve skin healthy foods.

1) Carrots

Carrots are sometimes called the “herbal healer” of skin diseases because they endorse the repair of skin tissue. Eating carrots will provide your body with vitamin C and beta carotene, two antioxidants that may help to fight the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and protect your skin from damage.

2) Eggs

Not only are eggs beneficial for the body, they can also provide a good dose of nourishment to your skin and make them healthier. Eggs contain lutein, which provides hydration and elasticity for skin and its protein content helps repair tissue and keep skin firm.

3) Leafy Vegetables

Spinach and other green leafy vegetables contain powerful antioxidants and healthy amounts of vitamins A, C and E, which can help to fight wrinkles and protect your skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals.

4) Fish

Eating fish may also improve your skin health. Fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel, and herring, are excellent sources of collagen and vitamin E, both of which are necessary to help keep your skin thick, supple, and moisturized.5) Soyabeans

If you have puffy or tired looking skin, soyabeans can help it appear firmer and younger. This is because it helps to promote collagen production, and also reduce the appearance of sun damage, like age spots and scars from sunburns.

6) Turmeric

Turmeric contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components, which may provide glow and luster to the skin, and also revive your skin by bringing out its natural glow. 

7) Avocados

Avocados are filled with natural oils that moisturize your skin. The beta-carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E found in avocado, also helps to make sure your skin is moisturized, and free of blemishes, acne, and wrinkles. 

8) Tomatoes

Eating tomatoes regularly will help to stimulate the production of collagen, the protein which gives the skin its structure, thereby reducing oiliness and enhancing the texture of your skin.

9) Sweet potatoes

Anti-inflammatory in nature, sweet potato has high vitamin A content which helps fight acne-causing bacteria. The presence of vitamin C further improves skin tone and heals pimple scars.

10) Cucumber

Cucumber is extremely beneficial for aging skin. They are loaded with lots of nutrients like water, potassium, sulfate and vitamins A and C, all of which can help to soothe, hydrate, and heal dry skin. 

11) Beans

Beans are good sources of fibre, protein, niacin (vitamin B3) and pantothenic, all of which are essential for a healthy and beautiful skin. They are also very rich in zinc, which has high healing properties that can help to fight acne.

12) Walnuts

Walnuts offer healthy omega-3-fatty acids that strengthen the membranes of your skin cells, locking in moisture and nutrients that keep it plump and glowing and keeping out toxins that can damage your skin cells.

Just stick to a regular habit of eating the recommended foods, and in time you’ll feel better, look better, and your healthier skin will reflect it all.
