The Best Foods To Nourish Dry Skin


The Best Foods To Nourish Dry Winter Skin

When the weather gets really cold (grrrr... thanks winter!) my skin can get very dry and dehydrated. So at the beginning of winter, I always make sure I eat more of the following foods to ensure that my skin looks and feels nourished and moisturised.

Water ~ Always drink at least 8 glasses of water each day. It's the best thing you can do to keep your skin hydrated, blemish-free and smooth all year round.

Avocado ~ An amazing source of vitamins C and E, as well as the good fats that lock in moisture and hydration.

Fish ~ Contains omega-3 fats, which strengthen the skin cells, help protect the skin from sun damage and promote elasticity.

Orange Vegetables ~ Orange and yellow veggies contain beta-carotene, which is great for your skin. These foods also contain vitamins A and C, which fight dryness, help protect the skin from sun damage and produce lots of collagen.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil ~ Choc-full of vitamin E and lots of good fats, all of which nourish and moisturise the skin.

Spinach and Leafy Greens ~ Dark leafy greens are packed with iron, omega-4 fatty acids and vitamins A, B and E all of which protect the skin and improve your immune system. Also, the folate and phytochemicals in these leafy greens hydrate the skin and keep it healthy.

Fruit ~ Water-dense tropical fruit contain super-high levels of vitamins A and C, which hydrate the skin and protect it from the environment. Also, the antioxidants in these fruits replenish collagen production and keep the skin supple, young and firm.

Eggs ~ High in protein, which helps skin hydration, elasticity and cell regeneration, 

So, as the saying goes, "you are what you eat" and I can guarantee that these foods will keep your skin supple, young and wow-bam-radiant no matter how cold the weather gets. 
Gotta love that!

Love, Elle xo
