Snacking And Skincare
In today's day in age, you have limitless options for skincare products, all claiming to have their different benefits. Supermarkets have entire aisles devoted to skincare products, where billion dollar companies try to entice you to buy their newest rinses, creams, moisturizers and exfoliants. However, getting back to the root of what really makes skin healthy is much more simple than the modern world of beauty has led you to believe. The path to radiant skin circles back to diet, and if your diet doesn't include foods that nourish the skin, then brand names won't help.

As Ayurvedic beauty lovers, we've complied of lists of food that will help you attain naturally glowing skin:
This super-fruit helps prevent dry skin and brittle nails, and can also be applied as a moisturizing mask.

3. Green Tea
Four cups a day keeps the botox away. Green tea ranks high as a skin-healthy beverage due to its high amounts of polyphenols (anti-oxidants.) If you like to vary it up, there are peach, blueberry, pomegranate, and many other flavors to try.
4. Citrus Fruits
Loaded with Vitamin C which aids in collagen production.
How does fewer fine lines sound? Salmon improves skin elasticity and slows down signs of aging. However, be cautious here to only purchase wild Alaskan salmon. Farm-raised salmon actually causes more harm than good.

While enjoying this treat, rub some on your skin for speedy skin cell healing and to create more collagen. If you prefer the no sugar added juice form, pomegranate juice is great for skin texture, can aid in healing scars, and even has anti-aging properties.
Packed with Omega-3's, pop a handful of these for smoother, younger looking skin.
Protein-packed! Once digested the protein breaks down into amino acids, which help with regeneration of skin cells and collagen.
10. Red & Green Veggies
Packed with loads of health benefits red and green vegetables also brighten and smooth your skin, so try to consume a side of veggies at mealtime.
