Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body?
Believe it or not, diet plays a significant role in your skin health as what you put on it. The phrase 'you are what you eat' certainly comes to mind.
Protecting your skin from outdoor pollutants and chemicals can be challenging, but what you eat daily makes an even more significant difference. A diet high in sugar and processed foods will likely lead to inflammation, acne, and premature skin aging.
Conversely, a healthy diet rich in antioxidants and healthy fats may provide you with clearer skin and may even prevent skin cancers such as melanoma or carcinoma.
If you want flawless, glowing, vibrant, and younger-looking skin, make sure you're getting these nourishing foods on your plate or conveniently in your juice bottle!

Food Combining for Maximum Nutrient Absorption
In addition to nutrient-rich antioxidants and polyphenols found in vegetables, you'll also want to incorporate healthy fats into your daily diet.
When you eat healthy fats and oils that contain omega-3 fatty acids, you will significantly impact the health of your skin. These fats are found in olive oil, coconut oil, fish like salmon and tuna, avocado, and nuts.
By consuming these fats regularly, along with healthy proteins, you will help to boost collagen production in your skin. By increasing your skin’s collagen production, your skin will stay smooth and supple, which will aid in premature wrinkles and skin sagging prevention.
