Summer’s right around the corner and it’s time to get your skin feeling fresh and ready for the hot summer sun.
Research shows that eating healthy foods can nourish your skin, by keeping you hydrated and reducing inflammation in your body. So why not stock up on a few things that will benefit your health and last in your pantry all season long?
Food Service Direct, the premiere online marketplace with thousands of bulk food, shares the information below, to help you know which foods are great for skin health:
Sweet potatoes are surely a Thanksgiving trend – but they can also shine in summer! This vegetable contains elements that can serve as natural moisturizers, and which may help prevent sunburn, dry, wrinkled skin.
Consuming dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa) has lots of beauty benefits. Dark chocolate promotes cell growth and can help reduce skin acne inflammation. It can also improve your hair quality and volume.
This underrated snack deserves a little more attention! Walnuts are rich in antioxidants and their nourishing fats soothe dry skin, making you look younger and healthier. We recommend eating around 7 walnuts a day to take advantage of their beneficial properties.
Green tea contains antioxidants which can help protect your skin against sun damage, reduce redness and improve your body’s overall hydration. Having one cup a day can do wonders on your skin.
