Five healthy fats for glowing skin
Barlean's Organic Flax Seeds: Flaxseeds are very high on the anti-inflammatory index. This is great for skin because redness and inflammation are minimized, meaning it could help with rosacea, acne, dermatitis, and psoriasis. An easy addition to your diet, Barlean's Organic Flax Seeds can be added to water, juice, or smoothies, or sprinkled on top of yogurt, salads, or your breakfast cereal.
Avocado: The benefits of avocado for your skin are plenty. It reduces wrinkles, purges dead skin cells, moisturizes, acts as a natural sunscreen, and gives the user an overall glow. Adding avocado to your diet is easy too-you can eat the fruit, drink the juice, or use the oil directly on your skin or in cooking.
Organic Coconut Oil: Coconut oil has been all the rage with celebrities and fashionistas in the past several years, and for good reason. It deeply moisturizes the skin, strengthening the underlying tissues and removing excess dead skin, giving you a natural glow. For best results, apply directly to the skin, though you can also cook with coconut oil to benefit overall health.
Organic Nuts: The biggest benefit of eating organic nuts is preventing the breakdown of collagen and helping the body to manufacture more. Organic nuts contain protein, which is important in the manufacturing of collagen in the body, and vitamin E, which makes your skin look younger by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Almonds, walnuts, and other organic nuts are tasty and easy to add to your diet as an easy snack or a salad topping.
Flora Almond Oil: Almond oil is popular for use in aromatherapy and generally makes skin healthier. Among the many benefits, it helps your skin moisturize deeper, soothes skin irritation, and relieves dry and chapped skin, along with reducing dark circles and delaying signs of aging. It can be directly applied to the skin, used as salad dressing, or in baking.
