Healthy Skin From Within

We know how important good nutrition is for our health. As scientists and medical professionals study what food does to and for our bodies, we are becoming increasingly aware that what we eat significantly affect our skin health as well as the overall aging process.

Just remember that whatever you choose to eat will eventually show up in your skin!

That said, it is never too late to improve and nurture your skin with healthy food.

In fact, I highly recommend a healthy diet to compliment any skin rejuventation treatment you might be having at Skinovation cosmetic clinic. I believe that to achieve healthy glowing skin what you put in your mouth, is at least as important as what you put on your skin.


What you eat is digested and broken down into vitamins, minerals and amino acids that your body uses to build healthy, strong and radiant skin.

An increasing body of research is showing how unhealthy and ageing unrefined carbohydrates can be to our bodies and skin.

So what should we be eating?

Replacing high sugary foods such as chocolate, lollies, biscuits, cakes, ice cream and other refined carbohydrate like packeted chips with more nutrition snacks such as a handful of strawberries, a delicious apple, carrot sticks or a piece of toast with vegemite can really slow down the ageing process, improve our skin and even help prevent internal cancers.

Additionally, fizzy sweet drinks like coke and lemonade and added sugar to tea and coffee can be harmful to your body and skin. A much healthier alternative, that can improve your skin health, is simply drinking water.  Additionally you could reduce and ideally stop any sugar added to tea or coffee.

The best diet is one that includes red, green and yellow vegetables preferably eaten at each meal, as well as drinking a green juice every day.

For strong, healthy, glowing skin an optimal diet would contain foods that are rich in omega 3 fatty acids (such as sardines, chia seeds, flaxseed and walnuts), collagen boosting vitamin C (such as strawberries, oranges, lemons, kale and broccoli) and antioxidants to help break down damaging free radicals (such as wheat germ, pumpkin, sweet potato and cooked tomatoes).

Here is a link to my favorite salmon and salad recipe. If you are not a salmon eater, you can substitute this with chicken breast- yum!
