10 Superfoods for glowing skin

Posted by Beckie Page 1

Nourish your body from the inside out with 10 tasty foods to cleanse, detoxify and purify your pores for radiant, glowing skin. Combine with exercise and plenty of water to create your own 100% natural skin care regime this summer.

 

1 - Burdock

A root vegetable, much like sweet potato, Burdock tastes delicious stir fried or pickled (it makes fab herbal tea too). A powerful natural healer full of calcium, potassium and magnesium, Burdock has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to set you on your path to glowing skin.



 

2 - Garlic Strawberry

An antioxidant that helps the body fight off harmful bacteria and viruses including skin infections. It’s most effective eaten raw and makes a mean salad dressing. Try whisking 1 small clove with ⅓ cup of olive oil, 3 tbsp of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of crushed black pepper.



 

3 - Nettle & Fennel Tea

Nettles have tons of detoxifying benefits. They help to calm the skin and improve conditions such as eczema. Fennel also aids digestion, flushes out excess water and is good for healthy hair.

 

4 - Strawberries, Blueberries & Raspberries

What makes berries so special? They’re loaded with natural nutrients (phytochemicals) that protect skin cells from damage, and blueberries are ranked #1 on the antioxidant scale by agricultural food experts!

 

5 - Tomatoes Tomatoes

Rich in Vitamin C, tomatoes aid collagen production, which is the absolute best for keeping the skin firm and taut. The red pigment also stimulates circulation.

 

6 - Watercress

An incredible cleanser, the leaves are full of minerals, carotene and potassium to flush out toxins. Tart up a salad with watercress, fennel and pomegranate seeds.

 

7 - Red grapes

Their natural antioxidants have been used to treat psoriasis and eczema and they’re a natural antihistamine too, which helps treat the effect of allergic reactions.

 

8 - Asparagus

If superman was a vegetable… There’s a million reasons to eat asparagus, it’s an anti-inflammatory, fights infections, improves the metabolism, bone health, bloating, digestion, fertility, energy, mood and lots more. It’s brimming with Vitamin E too, which your skin just loves, and can be applied directly to the face to cleanse, soothe acne and get rid of blemishes.



 

9 - Brazil nuts

High in selenium which increases white blood cells, nuts also contain Vitamin E, copper, magnesium, potassium, calcium and iron which are essential for glowing skin.

 

10 - Artichoke

A superfood used in herbal creams and skin care cosmetics, artichokes help the body resist inflammatory reactions, improve skin complexion and nourish cells.

I love Artichokes but can never find the fresh produce here in the UK shops.
I have bought some seeds and hope to grow my own.
I notice a vast improvement in my complexion after eating.
