Sunscreen is a great way to protect your skin from the sun and the outside world. It’s the best way to protect your skin from the outside. However, to protect your skin from the inside, you need a healthy, balanced diet full of the right nutrition.
Glowing skin comes from having a glowing lifestyle, which, of course, includes a balanced diet. The best part is that many of the foods that can help make your skin glow from the inside can also protect it from skin cancer, so it's a win-win. Let’s take a look at three recipes for glowing skin.
Sometimes, less is more when it comes to healthy recipes for making your skin glow. The first recipe on our list features salmon as the main ingredient, and it’s so simple it’s a great one to entertain people with.
The recipe calls for minced garlic to spread all over the salmon, giving it a rich Italian flavor. With slices of layered tomato on top and fresh basil, you’ll be able to conjure up a delicious, nutritious recipe to make your skin glow in no time.
If you want to make your skin really glow and stand out, you need to get the balance right in your diet. This means the right amount of whole grains and vegetables. While you may not usually think of having these two food groups together, there are a number of magical ways that they can be matched up for an unforgettable salad.
When you add whole grains to a salad, you create a healthy, hearty meal that's sure to fill you up until the next one. Salads like this give you slow-releasing energy that can last throughout the day, with a couple of your five a day thrown in for good measure.
One of the heavyweights of the green leafy vegetables, spinach is a powerhouse of essential nutrients that can help make your skin glow from the inside out. Not only is it rich in iron, but it also includes vitamins K, C, and A, which are all essential nutrients for your skin.
Another way to keep your skin glowing all day is to keep it hydrated. One of the most hydrating fruits out there is watermelon. This juicy, fresh fruit is full of beneficial plant compounds and nutrients, and it also includes the ability to lower inflammation, too. One of the biggest culprits of dull skin is dehydration, so tossing watermelon and spinach together into a nutrient-dense salad is your ultimate solution.
Care for Your Skin from the Inside Out
We are what we eat, and when we eat processed foods that are high in saturated fat, salt, and sugar, our skin takes the hit. It becomes dull, dry, and can even be more susceptible to blemishes. The more you care about your skin from the inside as well as the outside, the closer you will come to achieving that glow.
