Ladies, we’ve all heard the expression “you are what you eat”. While it might not necessarily be true in a literal sense (we’ve never seen anyone turn into a burger quite yet) what you put into your body has a huge impact on your outward appearance. The food that we eat is broken down and used to fuel our bodies and provide for our nutritional needs and it shows on our face. Have you ever had those weeks where you’ve subsisted on nothing but junk food and you notice your skin becoming oily, ashen, grey etc. That’s because junk food, refined sugars, saturated fats, and oils wear our bodies down, provide no nutritional value, nutrients, or benefits to our bodies. Fresh fruits and vegetables on the other hand contain dozens of fresh vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that our bodies use to keep our insides and outsides fresh and healthy. There are foods that are known to be especially good for your skin. Here are 5 foods to add to your diet for glowing skin.
