When you think "skincare", you probably think of some 7-step, overpriced product line, promising you a more youthful complexion. I hate to break it to you, but you can’t smother on a bunch of face creams expecting them to do all the work!
As researchers learn more about the human body, it is becoming increasingly clear that what you eat impacts the health and aging of your skin. Turns out beauty really does come from the inside 😉
Here’s my top list of foods + supplements that will support your skin from the inside out (bonus- all of these foods support way more than just your skin- eat these regularly and I’m sure you’ll see amazing results throughout your entire body!)
1. Fatty Fish
I am talking wild-caught salmon (NOT king salmon), sardines, mackerel, and herring. Fatty fish are some of the most potent sources of anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fatty acids. The modern American diet is high in inflammatory Omega-6 fatty acids and low in Omega-3’s. I personally try to have a serving of fatty fish at least twice a week. Fish oil supplements are also helpful if you don’t like to eat fish, but I always recommend getting it straight from the source if possible.
