Eating Your Way To Healthy Skin | Living Healthy Chicago


Skin health is a top
priority for many of us and while there’s plenty
of external products to help us out, it’s equally
important to boost your skin from the inside out. Jackie’s meeting up
with an expert to learn what we should be reaching for
to help make it all happen. – Hey guys, it’s Jackie and
I am here with registered dietician, Jessica Doggert,
and we are talking today about foods that are
healthy for your skin. We’re going to start today
with these ones over here which are high in vitamin A. That’s great for glowing skin. – Orange produce like
pumpkin, and sweet potatoes, and carrots and also
dark, leafy greens like kale and spinach. Studies show that eating
fruits and vegetables can help make your skin
color look more attractive than a suntan. And that’s really a much
healthier alternative to suntanning options. – Oh exactly, I feel like
the more you’re in the sun, the more wrinkles, the
more dry skin you have. Whereas if you have more
of that natural glow you have more soft, supple skin. – Okay and speaking of
wrinkles we have more foods you can eat to prevent them. These foods here are
rich in collagen. Why is collagen important? – Collagen is protein in
the body that really helps with skin elasticity. You can make homemade soups
with bone broth as the base or you can use collagen
peptides powder and add it to smoothies or
your morning cup of coffee. – Foods with vitamin C are
really important as well. – Yes so that’s going to
be a lot of citrus fruits like lemons and oranges as well
as vegetables like broccoli and bell peppers. So vitamin C plays a major
role in collagen synthesis. But it’s also an antioxidant. And antioxidants fight
those nasty free radicals that form wrinkles. – We’ve talked about a lot
of things that will improve skin’s glow and elasticity. We’ve moving onto a couple
categories that really will help with acne in
particular, starting
with vitamin E. – One study looked at
patients who were recently diagnosed with acne and found
that those with severe acne had 30% lower blood
levels of vitamin E compared to those who
had less severe acne. Vitamin E-rich foods like
almonds and sunflower seeds, they can keep you
looking pimple-free. – And finally we have some
foods that we know are good for our overall health,
things like olive oil, probiotics, fatty fish. Why are each of these important
for our skin in particular? – Fatty fish can
also fight acne. That’s gonna be things like
salmon and sardines and tuna. They contain this healthy
omega-3 fat that reduces inflammation in the body. Inflammation is linked to acne. Probiotic-rich foods also
keep you pimple-free. Probiotics contain
a fermented bacteria and all of these beneficial
bacteria is linked to improved complexion. – Excellent, and
finally the olive oil. – A fascinating study looked
at over 1,200 women and found that those with a higher
consumption of olive oil, greater than two teaspoons a
day, actually had less signs of aging and wrinkles
compared with those who only consumed one teaspoon a day. That’s likely because
olive oil contains a monounsaturated fat which
is linked to a youthful boost. – We think so often about the
products we put on topically for our skin. But it starts from
the inside out. What you eat is affecting
how your skin looks. – Exactly, so beauty foods
are definitely hiding in your kitchen. All these foods are going to
make your skin look supple and improve complexion
and things like that. But really these foods also
nourish you from the inside out. When you eat really healthy
I think that just makes you glow so much more, too. – Yes absolutely. Thank you so much, Jessica. And for more tips on
