Though we all enjoy indoor heating in winters and cozying up inside our houses, our skin pays the price for this. Going out doesn’t do much favor either as the dry chilly winds containing a low amount of moisture cause serious damage to your lips and skin. These factors all come together and lead to the dry and flaky skin giving you a dull and lifeless complexion, so, what now?

Well, we all try our level best to figure out and maintain the best possible skincare regime that satisfies the needs of our winter skin but are you sure that the problem only lies in your skincare routine. Did it ever cross your mind that your problematic skin is a result of what you are feeding it, not what sits on top of it in layers in the name of skincare?

Having a proper skin care routine is a must and also taking your makeup off properly at the end of the day but keeping an eye on what you eat may change not only the way you look but also feel. Your skin is a reflection of what’s going on inside just like your body is a reflection of your lifestyle so, to help you get started with your grocery list, I have listed some of the foods that will bless you with perfectly radiant and glowing skin all winter long:

Olive oil

Incorporate this in your diet in the form of salads dressings to give you a boost of vitamins and minerals especially vitamin A and vitamin E. Being rich in natural fatty acids help maintain the elasticity and hydration of the skin when applied topically.

Carrots

Carrots, a natural source of vitamin A helps in diminishing sun spots and combat sun damage. It contains certain anti-oxidants that steer clear aging signs and pigmentations.

Grapefruit

Loaded with vitamin C, grapefruit helps to keep your skin smooth and radiant giving you a glowing from within look.

Avocado

These yummy things are your dry skin’s best friend. They are known to be rich in fats that help smooth out the driest of skins. The nutrients lock in the moisture giving you healthy and plump skin.

Spinach

Green leafy vegetable in your diet could give you a boosted protection against early signs of aging. Spinach being rich in Iron improves skin tone and keeps frail health at bay.

Dark Chocolate

I’ve saved the best for the last because this is my favorite thing to munch on. Dark chocolate is considered good for the skin with higher cocoa content proportional to the health benefits. Dark chocolate is said to contain antioxidants that fight free radicals and keep your skin the best looking throughout winter. For the times when healthy eating becomes tough, don’t hesitate on biting off a piece or two from that chocolate bar.

Love, xoxo
