5 Smart Foods that Hydrate your Skin

We are all tired of hearing about the fact that it’s super important to remain hydrated. 39d4d62f4ec42f0ca82ca55c9e87097cWhich is 100% true, but sometimes difficult to achieve.

Although if you start eating food that already hydrates your skin you won’t have to drink so much water throughout the day and you can skip a few moisturizing days. Here’s 5 smart foods that hydrate your skin:

1. Fish

Fish is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, fatty fish like tuna, herring, salmon, and trout are perfect for retaining skin’s moisture and protecting against the cold. You can still keep your meal substantial by making healthy fish sweet and sour or simple salmon and greens.

2. Avocado 

I definitely don’t need any more reasons to love and eat avocados. This fruit is full to the brim with antioxidants, vitamin E, and monounsaturated fats, making it the perfect skin brightener. There’s a reason avocado on toast is so popular. That’s my favourite weekend snack, like you’ve probably already noticed on my Instagram.

3. Kale

Kale is packed with antioxidants and vitamins A, C, and K which are great for fighting skin-damaging free radicals. It’s also got indole-3-carbinol in it, which is a scary sounding chemical that actually boosts DNA repair in cells, meaning your skin will be repaired, hydrated, and protected!

4. Sweet Potato 458a26f74dac2f942b207b5601f55c37

This vitamin A-filled vegetable is celebrated for repairing tissue damage, replenishing dry skin and preventing premature aging. Switch your ordinary potatoes for sweet ones and watch your skin reap the benefits.

5. Dragon fruit 

They are rich sources of protein, omega 3 fatty acids, and omega 6 fatty acids which help keep your skin and hair hydrated. They’re also loaded with antioxidants which fight the free radicals in your body and help slow down the effects of aging. Genius! Add some to a smoothie bowl or fruit salad to enjoy their full skin-boosting potential.
