We all know you are what you eat. But most particularly, your skin really is what you eat. At Museo, we are all about superfoods and doing the best we can with our wholistic wellness and seeing the results on your skin is an amazing added bonus. Here are the superfoods you really should be eating if you want to see your best skin in 2020.

 

Avocado

Budget be damned, these beautiful green babies are the key to great skin, good hair and a happy gut. These superfood fruits have super hydrating complexion powers – they’re packed with healthy monounsaturated fats to give you a plump, happy inner glow. They’re full of Vitamin E, which we have long known helps maintain the skins barrier function and prevents moisture loss.

Citrus Fruits

The vitamin C content of citrus fruits helps your skin support beautiful collagen, which helps smooth over fine lines and wrinkles. A good intake of vitamin c is touted as being the key ingredient in improving skins overall texture – and many of us aren’t getting enough. Drinking a glass of warm water with a whole lemon squeezed into it in the morning is not only cleansing for your gut but helps you to increase your vitamin c intake dramatically, helping to improve your skin.

Note: Our fav morning additive to our day cream is the chirally corrected Pure C and BHA with 5% L’Ascorbic Acid with encapsulated BHA. It offers daily exfoliation and antioxidant benefits second to none. Perfect for all skins in fact an absolute daily must for keeping your skin looking fresh as well as being protected.

Carrots

We have spoken in depth about retinol before, and most of your anti-aging skincare products now contain this super ingredient. But where do we get retinol from in our food? Carrots. Carrots contain a high level of beta carotene, which is converted into retinol and thus into Vitamin A. Vitamin A is one of the major ingredients needed for the skin to rejuvenate, self-heal and soothe. A carrot a day is sure to help your skin get that glowing look.

Blueberries

Blueberries have been on the superfoods list for years, not only for their exceptionally high antioxidant levels but for their anthocyanins, which are thought to help fight cancer. Current research suggests that eating blueberries is a great way to rid your skin of toxins and free radicals, helping clear your skin from the inside out.

Note: I’ve heard whispers that the new Queen Plums grown in Australia offer a higher amount of antioxidants than blueberries … do some research!

Pomegranate

Pomegranates contain a potent antioxidant called polyphenols, as well as 3 times the antioxidants of green tea or red wine. The polyphenols protect your skin from strong, damaging UV rays, as well as helping reverse the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. You can also add more pomegranate to your diet by using the Miss Vitality Elevate nutritional blend, designed to give you a nutrient boost for your lifestyle.

Broccoli

Not only are cruciferous vegetables filling and full of a huge number of antioxidants, but broccoli, in particular, is loaded with vitamin c which boosts collagen production to soften fine lines and wrinkles. Look out for any supplements containing power greens – they’ll often include broccoli (or it’s little cousin spinach) to help boost your overall nutrition and vitamin c intake.

 

Salmon

Salmon helps ensure that you are well hydrated, which obviously reflects in your skin. The combination of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in salmon will nourish your skin from the inside out. If the idea of eating more fish really doesn’t appeal, you can always take the Miss Vitality Good Oil capsules, each containing 1000mg of fish oil from small fish sources, which is better for the environment.

 

Capsicum

Capsicum is PACKED with vitamin C – approximately 3 times that found in your average orange. Long a favorite in the Korean beauty market, the vitamin C from capsicum both brightens the skin, thanks to its antioxidant strength, and firms your skin as it helps you to produce more collagen. Win win.

 

Walnuts

Walnuts are a powerhouse of good skin nutrients. They’re packed with protective antioxidants, nourishing omega-3’s and tonnes of other vitamins, minerals and fibre. Whether you eat them as a snack, add them into pesto instead of pine nuts or include them in your morning smoothie, these nuts will give your skin the pep it needs.

 

Edamame

A staple in Japanese households and long thought to be the secret behind Japanese women’s ability to age impeccably is the edamame. These soy beans are full of isoflavone, a phytoestrogen that has skin-plumping abilities. For those of us on the downward side of the estrogen cycle (no judgement here!) it can give us back a bit of the glow that we had in our 20’s. It’s simple – just order a side of edamame with your sushi and you’re good to go.

 

By eating your way to better health, you can guarantee that not only your skin will feel the benefits, but your waistline and your gut microbiome will too. The team at Museo are more and more focussed on an inside-out approach to skin health, and we want to help you power your skin through your food. If you’re keen to make a serious change in your skin, we would love to help you.
