Three Foods for Glowing Skin

Along with providing you with great quality food, we also want to educate you on eating healthy.  Eating healthy can sometimes be a hassle. Especially when you live a busy lifestyle that’s always on the go. Luckily, these three foods can be portable and brought along to wherever you’re going. Best of all, there’s virtually no mess involved in the preparation of these snacks. And even if there was, Danby has the best countertop dishwasher, which is perfect for busy bees like you.

darkDark chocolate

Yes, you read right: dark chocolate. I bet you never thought chocolate would ever come close to this list. It’s there because researchers often link dark chocolate to skin benefits. It’ll not only help you prevent wrinkles, retain your skin’s moisture and reduce inflammation, but it’s also good for your insides.

If you eat a piece of dark chocolate that’s at least 35 per cent cocoa, you can expect to feel the benefits. It can help keep your blood pressure healthy and curb your appetite. So say goodbye to mid-afternoon junk food cravings. Eat a slice (or three) of dark chocolate and feel the antioxidants melt your problems away.

Nuts

When we say get nuts about nuts, we’re serious. Walnuts, almonds and peanuts are filled with vitamins that help keep the skin looking plump and glowing by neutralizing the molecules that make your skin appear dull. The Omega-3 fatty acids also help to keep your skin moisturized, regulate your blood sugar levels and increase your energy.

Citrus

Many people start their day with lemon water, and for good reason. It helps to boost your immune system, reduce bloating and can help keep your skin blemish-free. What’s not to love? Simply, slice a lemon each morning and add it to the water bottle you take everywhere. If you dirty a plate, don’t fret: for cleanest dishes, check out this portable dishwasher.

If you’re not into the taste of lemons, then opt for snacks like orange slices and green grapes. They’re packed with Vitamin C and amino acids that improve your circulation and boost collagen, both of which will keep your skin hydrated.
