5 Nutrients for Glowing Skin

Glowing, radiant skin is not just a sign of beauty but also a sign of health. And it’s actually quite simple to get there if you feed your body the right nutrients. Here they are:

Zinc protects the fats in your skin, which reduces the damage caused by the sun and pollution. It can also help heal acne. Pumpkin seeds, seafood, and meat are high in zinc.

Vitamin C is a great antioxidant and it’s also involved in the synthesis of collagen, the protein responsible for making skin look supple. Foods high in vitamin C include broccoli, citrus fruits, bell peppers, kale, and kiwi.

Selenium prevents acne and also helps maintain skin’s elasticity and firmness. Walnuts, tuna, liver, and onion are among the foods that are high in selenium.

Vitamin E is a great antioxidant that fights free radicals (which result in skin aging) caused by smoking, pollution, sun exposure and fatty foods. Foods with high vitamin E content include eggs, walnuts, avocados, almonds, and asparagus.

Vitamin A prevents acne and skin aging, and it is found in liver, carrots, sweet potato, dried apricots, and spinach.  


Water is the answer for most things in life. And in the case of glowing skin, water serves to rid the body of toxins and clear the skin.

Through exercise, you give your body the blood circulation it needs, which in turn makes your skin look better.
