5 Vegan Foods That Are Amazing for Your Skin

Millions of people are trying to attain healthy, glowing skin by spending hundreds of dollars on the wrong lotions and cosmetics. However, truly healthy skin has more to do with nutrition. Try adding some or all of the following foods to your meals:

Blueberries These are one of the few superfoods that are also delicious and great with many foods or as snacks. Blueberries are rich in antioxidants to slow aging, and also contain high amounts of fiber and vitamins a and C. They’re rich in manganese, iron, and potassium, but contain almost no saturated fats, cholesterol, or sodium.

Adding blueberries to your desserts, baking, and cereals will help reduce the lines of aging by tightening and renewing skin, but also fight acne and even balance out blotchy tones. They’ll both improve elasticity and healing of the skin over your entire body. Global skin-care companies like Nu Skin have developed products that leverage these same nutritional qualities to deliver better results.

Avocados This is a stone fruit with a creamy texture that many people find delicious, but with a mild taste that makes it a great addition to salads or sandwiches. Avocados are high in healthy types of monounsaturated fats that support skin cells and improve many body functions. They also contain 20 different vitamins and minerals. These include vitamins B6, C, E, and K, plus riboflavin, niacin, beta-carotene, potassium, pantothenic acid, lutein, omega-3 fatty acids, and more. In addition to being one of the most nutritious foods, they contain plenty of fiber and very low sugar. Sometimes called alligator pears or butter fruit, avocados support overall health and metabolism for healthy, radiant skin.

Walnuts These nuts are another superfood that has been around a long time but is only beginning to be appreciated. They make for a tasty and satisfying addition to trail mix, salads, desserts, or eaten all by themselves. Walnuts are a good source of key fatty acids that the body doesn’t manufacture on its own. Compounds like omega-3 linoleic acid are good for the circulatory system and skin health.

A single ounce of walnuts contains almost 100 percent of the omega-3 RDA for adults. They are also high in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. Walnuts contain eight different minerals and most of the B vitamins, especially B6. They also provide folate, which is essential for red blood cells and healthy skin function.

Sunflower Seeds Most nuts and seeds are smart diet choices, but sunflower seeds stand out even among these. Sunflower seeds are low in sodium and cholesterol, but high in fiber. They provide a number of essential nutrients such as thiamin, vitamin B6, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, copper, and selenium. Walnuts are also high in vitamin E. They help to sustain the cardiovascular system for better blood flow and cell nutrition, but also promote resistance and healing of skin damage from harsh sunlight, toxins like cigarette smoke, and even diabetes.

Sweet Potatoes These should become your alternative to white potatoes, which are high in starches and carbohydrates. Sweet potatoes, in contrast, are rich in vitamin A, plus vitamins C, D, E, B2 and B6, and biotin. These potatoes have a low sugar content and numerous minerals such as magnesium, iron, and calcium. They typically contain more beta-carotene than any other root vegetable. Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant that eliminates free radicals from your body to strengthen the immune system and slow aging. This will help to reduce rough, wrinkled skin so that you stay looking younger longer.

Consult the USDA nutrient database for more info on the above suggestions. You should have no problem incorporating them into your meals and snacks to keep your skin looking young and radiant.
