3 Things to Add to Your Diet for Healthy Skin

NingXia Red - Young LivingBeauty may only be skin deep, but caring for your skin starts with some of your body’s most basic functions. That’s why taking care of your skin is more than simply applying serums and creams. Keeping your skin its best also requires proper sun protection, plenty of sleep, and a healthy diet that includes a variety of vitamins and minerals.

A diet full of healthy, unprocessed food is an easy way to care for your skin at its structural level, but lots of Young Living supplements also contain ingredients that support healthy-looking skin. Check out a few noteworthy beauty boosters and some of our essential oil-infused favorites that include them!

Antioxidants

You’ve heard people buzzing about antioxidants and free radicals, but do you know what they are? Free radicals are reactive molecules that can cause cell damage, and exposure comes from daily living, including things like your body breaking down food, time in the sun, and pollution.

Super C - Dietary Supplement - Young LivingLongevity Essential Oil Supplement - Young LivingWhen it comes to neutralizing these molecules, antioxidants play an important role. Add these defenders to your diet by looking for richly colored fruits and veggies (think blueberries, blackberries, cherries, plums, kale, spinach, and beets) and nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin E, and CoQ10.

OmegaGize3 - Young Living Dietary Supplement Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Think “healthy fat” is an oxymoron? Think again! Your body needs omega-3 fatty acids on a structural level since they are part of cell membranes and help with cell function. And your body can’t create these fats on its own—you can only get them directly from food. That makes a diet rich in omega-3s especially important. To up your intake, eat food like walnuts, leafy greens, flax seed, and fresh or canned fish.

Zinc

We’re not just talking about whiting out your nose to protect it from the sun’s rays. The trace mineral zinc is actually a little-known skin saver. That’s because your body’s cells, particularly skin cells, rely on this mineral to function. It helps support the skin, in addition to promoting balanced oil production. Add some zinc to your diet with lobster, crab, oysters, cashews, almonds, chicken, chickpeas, and other beans.Master Formula - Young Living
