Plant based foods for beautiful skin 

Get beautiful skin from the inside out, these foods will give you a healthy glow!

Nuts especially almonds fight free radicals with vitamin C these also help the skin hold onto moisture. Orange, red and yellow vegetables such as capsicum and tomato are rich in beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A, this helps prevent cell damage and premature aging.

and leafy greens are also a good source. Citrus fruits helps your body to produce collagen the vitamin C can help tighten up saggy skin. Things to avoid include grains and sugar particularly in the form of fructose.  

Support liver function by consuming dark leafy green such as kale, spinach, dandelion greens and broccoli. All of these can be juiced and this sometimes makes it easier to consume; particularly for me with kale. Raw and virgin fats and oils such as coconut oil. Antioxidant rich fruits are good value and this includes most berries.
