Clean Label Foods and All Natural Ingredients for Beauty From the Inside Out


May 25, 2016

Eating all natural and clean label foods are not just an obvious way to feel better on the inside but can also be a great way to look better too! Most people treat their skin with chemical-ridden products, which may not address the root cause of skin issues and can often cause even more problems. Add to that an unhealthy diet and your skin could really suffer. Your skin's health is a reflection of your inner health. Eating the right foods will not only enhance your natural beauty, it will help minimize wrinkles, acne, inflammation and other skin-related conditions. At Froozer®, we understand the importance of eating whole foods for superior nutrition that keep your body and skin healthy and beautiful. We present natural fruits and veggies in all their glory, nothing added or subtracted – not even a drop of water and never any added sugar. 

Wondering what to eat for glowing healthy skin? Here are a few key nutrients that are essential for a healthy body that lead to a beautiful complexion.

Vitamin C is involved in the synthesis of collagen, an important protein for making your skin supple. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant. It helps reduce oxidative stress to the body and may lower your risk for cancer. Foods high in vitamin C include broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, bell peppers, guava, acerola, beet greens, grapefruit, strawberries, red and green bell peppers, kale, parsley, collard greens, bananas, and turnip greens.

Selenium not only prevents acne, but it also aids in skin cancer prevention. It is a powerful antioxidant trace mineral that is responsible for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. This mineral promotes absorption of vitamin E and enhances the antioxidant functions of vitamin E – which is mainly stored in the skin – resulting in glowing skin and less deterioration to the skin's collagen. Foods high in selenium include brazil nuts, walnuts, red snapper, tuna, liver, wheat germ, herring, onion, seafood, whole grains, and brown rice.

Free radicals are catalysts for premature skin aging. Because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin E helps fight free radicals caused by pollution, smoking, processed foods, and sun exposure. When combined with vitamin A, vitamin E is especially effective at preventing certain skin cancers. Vitamin E is one of the key vitamins for healthy skin. Food sources high in vitamin E include almonds, eggs, walnuts, avocados, asparagus, sunflower seeds, pine nuts, spinach, oatmeal, and olives.

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are responsible for skin repair, moisture content and overall flexibility. They offer healing benefits for various inflammatory conditions such as eczema. Since the body doesn't produce EFAs, they must be obtained through the diet. Food sources for EFAs include walnuts, salmon, mackerel, sardines, flaxseeds, and chia seeds. You can also take a fish oil supplement.
