We truly believe that no matter what time of year it is, there is always an opportunity for self-improvement and better habits. It should come as no surprise that for most people, the start of a new year is the most popular time to make changes to their diet, routines or life.

With 2019 in full swing, we wanted to chat about what you’re putting into your body and how it will affect your skin for the next 12 months.

When you combine effective and powerful skincare products with a healthy and skin-focused diet, you can expect to be blown away by the results you notice! Here are a few of our top suggestions to help your skin glow from the inside out.

Pumpkin Seeds

They’re super easy to cook with and include in your diet and can be used for everything from homemade soups to salad ingredients.

The omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 in pumpkin seeds will reduce inflammation and keep skin healthy and strong. The high levels of zinc protect your cell membranes, helps maintain collagen, and promotes skin renewal which leads to younger and healthier skin.

Avocados

avocados, skincare foodsEver look in the mirror and wonder why your skin looks dry, flaky and dull? Chances are it’s because it’s having a difficult time retaining moisture. Avocados have a very high source of Vitamin E, which is actually a nutrient that helps your skin and body retain moisture giving it a dewy glow.

Vitamin E from avocados is also a really powerful antioxidant which helps your skin deal with free radical damage that can be caused by sun exposure, pollution or other harmful factors of the environment. It doesn’t hurt either that they are super delicious and can be prepared in so many different ways!

Chocolate

You’ve probably heard the opposite of this before, like chocolate causes breakouts, but the key to mention is that not all chocolate will help your skin glow, but dark chocolate absolutely will!

Dark Chocolate contains antioxidants called flavonoids, which soften any rough skin and protect against sun damage by increasing resistance to UV rays. This will decrease wrinkles, dark spots and free radical damage over time so while you’re slathering on your SPF for the day, a few bites of dark chocolate will not only taste great but help your skin big time!
