10 Foods You Should Be Eating To Banish Dry Skin


The best advice I have ever been given for dealing with dry skin is to treat it from the inside. This means keeping myself hydrated and eating a diet with plenty of antioxidants and healthy fats.


When dealing with dry skin you can't be afraid to eat a little bit of fat. Healthy fats act as an internal moisturizer, keeping your skin healthier for longer.

Your diet choices play a bigger part in your skin's condition than any of the skin care products you're buying. The right food choices can potentially give you that glow you're trying to achieve. They can also help you get rid of any flaky dry skin for good.

If you want to say goodbye to dry skin issues make sure you incorporate the following 10 things into your regular diet:

1. Fish


Eating foods rich in omega 3 fats is your best defense against dry skin. Fish and other sea foods (especially oysters) are one of the best choices when it comes to banishing dry skin. Fattier fishes (such as salmon) are loaded with omega 3 acids and zinc, making them the ideal choice.

2. Olive Oil


Olive oil can be used internally and externally when it comes to skin care. It's a great choice for an all natural moisturizer because it does not cause breakouts. It's also very easy to work into your diet because it's great to cook with, but can also be used on top of salads or as a butter replacement.

3. Cucumber


Staying hydrated is a must if you want your skin to remain healthy. That's easy to do when snacking on cucumber because they are 90% water. They are also rich in vitamin A and C too!

4. Nuts & Seeds


Nuts and seeds are rich in vitamin E, which hydrates the skin and also protects it from pollutants and other damges.

5. Eggs


Eggs are a great source of protein. The egg yolks is a excellent source of fatty acids and vitamin A, which is important for keeping your skin nourished.

6. Sweet Potato


Sweet potatoes are always a good choice when planning a meal. These babies are loaded with vitamins and beta carotene, which is great for fighting that rough scaly skin that happens during winter.

7. Avocado


Here is another excellent example of a healthy fat. Eating avocados is the healthiest, and vegan friendly, way to nourish your skin from the inside. Avocados are rich in vitamin E and C as well, making them one of the best food choices on this list for banishing dry skin.

8. Carrots


On top of being a good source of beta carotene and vitamin C, carrots ate also packed full of potassium. Eating carrots regularly helps your skin retain moisture, making them the perfect winter dinner vegetable.

9. Coconut


Coconuts are a high source of fat, so you know these guys will nourish your skin like no other. They are also loaded with zinc, magnesium and a lot of other vitamins.

10. Green Tea


Green tea is a great way to flush out toxins. It is also a great anti-inflammatory, which can help soothe your skin from swelling, redness and irritation.
