Foods for Beauty: What to Eat for Beautiful Skin & Hair

By Alexis Wolfer

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get better hair, skin and more beautiful in general just because of what you eat every day? Good news – you can! And here’s how…

Hydrate Your Skin from the Inside Out… Staying hydrated is – hands down – the best way to boost your beauty. Being dehydrated can leap to (un-kissable) chapped lips, (uncomfortable) constipation and (unsightly) dull skin, so be sure to drink at least half of your body weight in ounces of water each day to look (and feel!) your best.

Eat for Faster Hair Growth… Whether you hate your current haircut or just wish your locks would grow longer, load up on foods rich in growth-promoting proteins and iron, like salmon and flaxseeds for protein, iron and B vitamins and beans which also provide biotin, a vitamin essential for healthy hair, nails and skin.

Moisturize with Omega-3 Fatty Acids… Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids will help limit how much water your skin cells lose throughout the day, keeping you looking and feeling refreshed. They’ll also help soften the appearance of wrinkles and boost your skin’s ability to regenerate new cells for healthier, more youthful looking skin. Try adding an Omega-3 supplement to your diet or just eating more salmon, tuna, olive oil, anchovies, walnuts, almonds and avocados, which should be nothing short of yummy!

The beauty vitamins you should be taking!

Fight Free Radicals with Food… Free radicals are those pesky little environmental demons that cause our skin to age… radically! While antioxidant-rich serums do the trick topically, eating a diet rich in antioxidants (found in dark leafy greens and deep colored berries) will provide anti-aging benefits from the inside out.

Go Green for Shinier Hair… If your hair is dry and dull, add more spinach to your diet. The dark green leafy vegetable is rich in vitamins A and C, which is essential for sebum production, your body’s natural conditioner. Plus, dark green vegetables also provide iron and calcium.
