Five Foods That Hydrate Your Skin

Posted by Angela @ farragio on Saturday, May 18, 2019 Under: health beauty

If you do a search for "foods that hydrate skin" you'll find there are a surprising number of foods that are not only healthy for your insides but healthy for your skin as well. Incorporating these foods into your diet, especially in winter when skin tends to be drier, is an important part of your skin care routine.

Below are five of the top foods I found in my search that help hydrate skin:

1. Wild-Caught Salmon

Wild salmon (and other fatty fish like trout and tuna) is an excellent source of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids which, when eaten, helps your skin retain its moisture.

2. Avocado

Avocados are already known for being good in face masks and it turns out they're good for your skin when eaten, too. They're abundant with vitamin E and monounsaturated fats, especially Omega-6 fats, that not only help keep skin moist but help prevent aging.

3. Sweet Potatoes

One of the most important nutrients for preventing dry skin is vitamin A and sweet potatoes are loaded with it. The nutrients in sweet potatoes also help prevent premature aging of your skin.

4. Olive Oil

High in vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, and omega-3 fatty acids, this oil is not only healthy for your heart, it combats dryness and eczema. One way to consume olive oil is in dressings, especially mixed with apple cider vinegar which also aids in hydrating your skin.

5. Cucumber

Cucumbers contain vitamin A and vitamin C, as well as silica which helps increase moisture in your skin and also aids in improving skin elasticity.

So when you're working on your skin care routine don't forget to consider what foods you eat. Your body, inside and out, will thank you for it.
