Besides helping lower blood pressure, reducing your risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer, and helping move your digestive tract, eating plenty fruits and vegetables can also give you a glowing complexion.
A study published in the American Journal of Public Health determined that eating an additional two servings of fruit or vegetables for six weeks can give your skin a noticeable healthy glow.
Researchers at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland tracked the tie between diet and skin color changes for six weeks. Those who increased their consumption of vegetables and fruits experienced a radiant, healthier-looking complexion while those who ate fewer fruits and vegetables developed a dull skin tone.
To get a bright, healthy complexion, simply up your intake of fruits and vegetables to at least six cups a day. Choose brightly colored fruits and vegetables like dark leafy greens, red peppers, ripe bananas and cooked tomatoes.
Along with a glowing skin tone, you might even fewer blemishes. Foods like red grapes, artichokes, broccoli and alfalfa sprouts have shown to reduce inflammation and prevent breakouts.
It’s not only your skin that enjoys healthy eating habits. Your hair and nails can also benefit from a nutrient-rich diet.
Next time you head to the grocery store, don’t forget to stock up on your fruits and vegetables. Your skin will thank you.
