Superfoods for Super Skin: What You Should Know

Everything you eat has a direct impact on how you look, especially on your skin. If you’re not familiar or not a fan of superfoods, then you will have to change your perspective if you want to achieve glowing skin that lasts 24/7.

A diet focused on high-quality lean proteins, fibre, healthy oils, raw fruits and vegetables, and spices are best for supporting healthy skin, and superfoods can provide you with all the nutrients that you need. These foods contain high-quality amino acids—the building blocks for firm skin—plus anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich ingredients that promote overall skin metabolism and defence against harsh environments.

One of the areas that you need to avoid is free-radical damage (free radicals can be found in alcohol, tobacco and some foods) which can weaken your skin’s immunity and break down its metabolic functions. This causes the skin to eventually become uneven, and it loses that youthful glow that everyone wants to achieve. It can also trigger inflammatory reactions that will eventually resulting in thin, wrinkled, and uneven skin.

Now, let’s get started on what you need to buy on your next visit to the supermarket. Highlighted below are the so-called superfoods that you should have in your kitchen. Not only will they fuel a healthy body and mind, but they’ll also help solve your most intense skin concerns and lead you to your most glowing look yet.


Ginger is widely known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that are found in its roots. One of its characteristics that commercial companies are utilising is its soothing effect on skin, so don’t be surprised when you see it on facial menus, too.

Chia seeds

A famous smoothie ingredient, mixing these delicious seeds into your morning meal means you’re netting one of the richest sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are best known for its properties that act as building blocks for healthy skin cell function and new collagen production to keep the skin foundation strong and wrinkle-free.


Get rid of that sugary cereal on your kitchen cabinets and replace them with a bowl of plain oats in the morning and the results on your skin will definitely blow you away. This food is low on the glycemic index, a scale that rates foods containing carbohydrates based on how much each food increases blood sugar. Foods with a low glycemic index are better because starchy foods, which have a high glycemic level, increase blood sugar, promote inflammation, and have been shown to be associated with acne breakouts.
