Guest Post: Nutrition Tips For Glowing Summer Skin

I have another guest post for you today while I finish my manicure and get the pictures ready for posting! I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoy the post.

Nutrition Tips For Glowing Summer Skin

Summer is on it's way and with summer comes less clothing, like bathing suits and shorts. Because of this, it's important that the skin you are baring is glowing and healthy. If you want to protect your skin so it's glowing and healthy, you will obviously need to wear sunscreen and avoid the sun at the hottest times of the day, but what you eat also contributes to the overall health and appearance of your skin. If you want to ensure that what you put inside your body reflects well on the outside, here are some healthy eating tips that are certain to give your skin a more healthy and glowing appearance.

1. Drink Water
Drinking plenty of water is a great way to keep your skin fresh and healthy. Water hydrates the body and skin with the important fluids needed to maintain overall body health, so it is important that you try to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Water is a completely all natural health tonic for your skin.

2. Eat Fruit
Eating plenty of fruit is part of the well balanced diet needed to ensure the health of your skin and body. Fruit contains many ingredients that are essential to healthy skin so it is important that you include plenty of fruits into your diet.

3. Eat Your Vegetables
Along with fruits, vegetables are an essential part of any healthy diet that will provide benefits to both your body and your skin. If you want your skin to truly glow, be sure to include the daily requirements of vegetables into your diet.

4. Get Your Calcium
Calcium is a valuable necessity no matter what the weather outside is like, but it's especially needed during the summer. When you sweat, you lose calcium so it is important to make sure your summer diet includes plenty of milk, yogurt, cheese or other foods that contain calcium.

5. Avoid Fried Food
 The way you cook your food can be just as important as the types of food you eat. Try avoiding fried foods because these types of food are not good for the skin. Instead, opt for broiled, steamed or grilled food as opposed to fried food.

6. Vitamin E
 Vitamin E is an important vitamin that contributes to the overall health of your skin. If you want to include more vitamin E in your diet, try eating nuts, especially almonds, or try including avocados in your diet because this vegetable includes plenty of vitamin E.

The summer is a fun and enjoyable time to get out and enjoy the many opportunities to be had in the warm summer sun. Since you'll probably be exposing more skin as the temperatures rise, you'll want to be sure that your skin is in the best condition it can be. What you eat is a crucial contributor to the condition of your skin and if you want to ensure that your skin maintains a healthy glow, try incorporating the above listed foods and vitamins into your diet.

  1. The 1st tip, drinking water is the best way for a good and glowing skin. Some of us are not aware the benefits of drinking water, water does not only satisfy our thirst but also helps somehow in cleansing.
