Healthy glowing skin is to a large extent, determined by what you eat as quell as which products you put on your body. So, if you want to look radiant and heave the healthiest skin possible, it stands to reason that you should focus on your diet. 

With that in mind, here are some of the best foods to choose if you want to eat your way to healthier skin…


Turmeric is known to be an excellent anti-inflammatory, which is why lots of people with arthritis and similar conditions have added it to your diet. If you have skin conditions, like psoriasis, which are likely to be caused by inflammation, using turmeric in your diet could help you to better control your symptoms. Used in conjunction with good anti redness products it could also help to reduce, red, puffy skin to some extent too. Golden milk, a traditional Indian drink made of warm milk and turmeric is a great way to start the day right for your skin.


Avocados, as you will probably know, are packed full of healthy fats, which means they are great for helping you to maintain skin elasticity and a healthy glow. There is also some evidence to suggest they can help to protect your skin from UV rays, due to the fact that they contain sun-protective compounds, that can also reduce the formation of wrinkles. As if that wasn’t enough, they also contain a healthy dose of vitamin E, which can prevent oxidation to help your skin look younger for longer, too.

Walnuts are not only a delicious snack food, but they are also great for your skin. Rich in both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, they will help your skin to look plumper, smoother and younger for longer. They can also help to lower inflammation levels. So if you have eczema or other skin issues that cause redness and swelling, they can be very effective.  So, don’t be afraid to eat a handful each day.

Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a slow-release carb, which means they are great for controlling blood sugar and maintaining a healthy weight. Importantly, they are also rich in beta carotene. This is good news for your skin because beta carotene can help to protect your skin from sun damage. They are also high in antioxidants, which will help to slow down the ageing process when eaten regularly, too.


Eating your greens is so important for many reasons, and when it comes to your sin, broccoli is hard to beat. Why? Because it is packed with zinc, vitamins A and C, lutein, all of which can help to prevent wrinkles, dryness and oxidation, for healthier, younger-looking skin.

Soy, whether in the form of milk or tofu, is great for healthy skin because it contains isoflavones which can block estrogen in the body and help to improve skin elasticity in middle-aged women, according to at least one study.

Eat these foods on a regular basis, and your skin will be glowing in no time at all. Wash it all down with a few pints of filtered water and organic herbal teas per day and you'll glow even brighter!

Lots of love,
