There’s great news though: you have a choice.
The Adore Glowing Skin Diet
As soon as you wake up and before you even have breakfast, detoxify your body by drinking coconut water with a twist of lemon juice. Coconut water is full of potassium and electrolytes to deeply hydrate your skin from within, for a much softer, glowing complexion. Lemon is rich in Vitamin C and the antioxidants found in it fight damage caused by free radicals, keeping your skin looking younger.
Treat yourself to some scrambled eggs with coconut milk and a piece of papaya fruit. The yolk of the egg is rich in vitamins specially the “beauty vitamin” B. It helps hair grow, strengthens fingernails and helps your skin’s dryness. Papaya is known to fight inflammation – which is connected to many skin conditions – and helps unclog pores.
For lunch, have an avocado and spinach salad. Avocado is full of healthy fats that will make your skin glow by hydrating it and delaying its aging process caused by ultraviolet radiation. A single cup of spinach contains 65 percent of your recommended daily value of folate, which prevents skin cancer.
If you’re hungry in between meals, snack on some delicious Brazilian nuts, almonds or blueberries. One single Brazilian nut has over 135 % of your selenium requirements which is proven to promote collagen production and reduce dark circles. Almonds are dairy free sources of calcium. So if milk is breaking you out, you can still nourish your body with them while they repair your skin cells. Blueberries are one of nature’s superfoods thanks to its antioxidants that have an anti-aging effect on your skin.
The best dinner for a healthier skin that glows from within is grilled salmon and kale salad. Salmon is one of the most powerful sources of anti-inflammatory omega-3s. What about kale? It will give your skin the boost of the anti-aging vitamins A, C, E and K it needs.
