6 Fresh Foods for a Glowing Summer Time Complexion

6 fresh foods for a glowing summer complexion

Cucumbers

Although cucumbers hold the reputation of being a vegetable, they are in fact a fruit, and in fact a fruit with a big wow factor when it comes to nutrition. They contain most of the daily required vitamins and minerals your body needs. Adding these edible powerhouses to your daily meal plan will help trim your waistline, nourish your internal health at a cellular level, and brighten your complexion.

Watermelon

Watermelon is incredibly cleansing and cooling. Help your body flush out toxins and remain hydrated especially on hot days.

Blueberries

Blueberries are loaded with nutrition, with antioxidants that support your immune system, nervous system, and brain.

Dark Leafy Greens

The vibrant dark green leaves of chard are packed full of phytonutrients. Incorporating them into your meal plan will support your overall health. Chard helps to regulate your blood sugar, boost immunity, and promote alkalinity.

Carrots

Carrots and a glowing complexion go hand and hand. All that power of vitamin C under the influence of beta-carotene will totally rock your skin this summer.

Avocados

With their subtle personality and bold nutrition benefits, avocados are the perfect food for your skin. The tender green meat of the avocado is loaded with omega-9 fats, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Avocados will help your skin maintain healthy moisture levels, promoting the production of elastin and collagen and inevitably keeping the wrinkles at bay.
