SKIN NUTRITION


The best types of foods for your skin (and good health in general) are foods that are in as natural a state as possible, without chemicals, hormones and artificial additives.  Fruits and vegetables (preferably organic) are some of the best foods you can eat for skin health, as they are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants (which fight the free-radicals that can damage skin).  

Skin is largely protein, so a diet that is rich in protein (e.g. free-range beef, chicken, turkey and fish) can be very important.  Of course, the best protein choices would be ones that are hormone-free, antibiotic-free, and preferably grass-fed and organic.  There are many vegetarians out there that have very unhealthy skin due to their lack of sufficient "high-quality" protein intake.  So a diet with plenty of high-quality protein, low in carbohydrates (especially the simple and refined types), and high in fresh fruits and vegetables seems to make the most sense for healthy skin.  

Also, drinking a sufficient amount of purified water on a daily basis to keep the skin well-hydrated can be essential for healthy, radiant skin.  Try to drink "at least" 1/2 ounce of water per pound of your body weight.  For example, if you weigh 150 lbs., you should drink at least 75 ounces of water daily - a little more than nine 8-ounce glasses.
