Colours for a healthy glow: Nourish your skin from the inside out!

Did you know that the colours in fruit and veggies represent different antioxidants?

Antioxidants can be identified in food by their colour and these colourful molecules work to protect your body from the chemicals produced during oxidation, lifting the colour of your skin and giving a beautiful glow! So try eating a variety of colours in each meal – the more antioxidants you have in your body, the more your skin will glow!

  • Red in foods may help keep skin firm, bringing that glow within you

Don’t you just love the bright red colour in tomatoes and red peppers? Lycopene is responsible for making food this colour! This antioxidant helps with your skin`s circulation, giving it a refreshing boost, while keeping your skin firm and glowing. Next time you’re in the fruit and veggie aisle, be sure to pick up some strawberries and tomatoes!

  • Blue and purple in food may help as an anti-ageing agent for skin

Blue and purple fruits and veggies are jam-packed with antioxidants called Anthoxyanins. These are very powerful anti-ageing agents, that help to prevent the appearance of wrinkles. Although these blue and purple coloured fruit and veggies aren’t as common as other colours, you only need a few to get enough nutrients from them! Try adding some blueberries and beetroot to your daily meals!

  • Yellow/Orange in food may help with healing and give your skin radiant colour

Vitamin C is the key agent in yellow and orange foods. We all know the many benefits of Vitamin C for your body, but you may not know the amazing benefits for your skin. Vitamin C is used to synthesise collagen, so it can help the healing of acne, scars and blackheads, brightening your skin with radiant colour. Who doesn’t want a bit of help to heal those pesky scars while enjoying a beautiful glow! Grab some lemons and carrots and add them to your daily mix!

  • Green foods can help detoxify your skin

We have all heard of the numerous benefits of green foods, it’s almost impossible to name them all. When we are talking about detoxing, sulforaphane is antioxidant we’re referring to. Flush out those toxins to acheive clean, clear and glowing skin as well as reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Always add greens to your day- whether it’s putting some spinach and kale in your daily juice or having some raw brocolli with dinner.
