Ten Raw Foods That Are Amazing For Your Skin



These ten raw foods not only make you feel great, but give you amazing radiant skin. Whether you add them in smoothies or juices, these raw foods need to be in your diet every single day. Lots of celebrities follow the raw food diet. The Victoria's Secret models all attribute raw foods to their amazing complexions, and their overall energy and happiness. Here are the ten foods that will give you that VS Angel's radiant glow without even trying.
  1. KALE ~ Kale contains carotenoids, which are rich in antioxidants. Dark leafy greens are fabulous for a clean, healthy liver, which then gives you clear, radiant skin. A good liver means great skin.
  2. NUTS ~ Nuts are full of vitamins B and E. These vitamins help fight free radicals and also help with stress and wrinkles. Nuts contain omega-3 fatty acids that keep the skin looking young and hydrated.
  3. CITRUS FRUITS ~ These fruits are super-high in vitamin C which keeps the skin's collagen levels amazingly high. Lots of vitamin C means no more wrinkles.
  4. CARROTS ~ They have a tonne of vitamin A and biotin, which are brilliant for strong skin, nails and hair. Carrots are also packed up with anti-oxidants, which enable collagen production and healthy skin cells.
  5. SPINACH LEAVES ~ Spinach is full of anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins A, C and K, which keep the skin hydrated and help fade hyper-pigmentation and sun spots.
  6. RED and YELLOW CAPSICUM ~ This vegetable is stacked with carotenoids and vitamin C, which soothe any inflammation of the skin, promote collagen production and minimise the appearance of wrinkles.
  7. BERRIES ~ Berries are packed with anti-oxidants, which not only protect your skin from the aging process, but also build up those all-important collagen cells. And they taste great!
  8. BEETS ~ Beets have amazing cleansing properties and contain anthocyanins, which are the most powerful anti-oxidants out there. They prevent free radical damage, which help fight cancer and aging. Beets clear your blood of impurities. Your skin reflects the health of your blood, and the cleaner your blood, the more radiant your skin.
  9. APPLES ~ Apples contain polyphenols, which is a natural sunscreen. And they taste great.
  10. ALMOND MILK ~ Almond milk is rich in copper, which produces collagen. It also protects the skin from sun damage, and helps with pigmentation.
Love, Elle xo
