How to Eat for Healthy Hair & Skin

How to Eat for Healthy Hair and Skin What’s on your plate not only determines your weight, energy levels and internal health, but also your outer glow. Want healthier skin and stronger, shinier hair? Consider these foods first. Eat More Kale It’s one of the best sources of lutein and zeaxanthin, nutrients that absorb and neutralize the free radicals created by UV light—including the wavelengths that actually get through sunscreen and reach your skin, according to research in Clinics in Dermatology. For this and other organic leafy greens, check out Superfoods. Up Your Vitamin C Vitamin C boosts collagen production, which keeps hair strong and skin elastic, which means fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Citrus fruits, blueberries, strawberries, peppers and, of course, leafy greens are all rich sources of vitamin C. This vitamin is also critical in generating circulation to the scalp to feed your follicles. Pump Iron Iron is one of the key nutrients your body requires to perform its daily activities. Pale skin and dark circles are the most common signs of anemia due to iron deficiency, but a healthy dose can give your skin a pink glow. Plus, it speeds up wound healing and fights hair loss. Chia! Chia seeds are full of nutrients that promote hair growth, including protein, zinc and copper, as well as B vitamins and iron that prevent hair loss. No more shedding? Sign us up. Nourish with Vitamin E This aids in the production of keratin, which plays a huge role in preventing hair breakage and supporting growth. You can get vitamin E in supplement form or by eating almonds, pine nuts, spinach and olives. Dig In To Dark Chocolate That’s right! This treat is rich in cocoa flavanols, plant compounds with antioxidant properties, which help hydrate skin and improve circulation. Just remember to stick with dark chocolate, like what is found in our Orgain Plant Based Protein Powder, and not the sugary stuff. Get Your Whole Grains Omega-3s are awesome, but it’s omega-6 that gives healthy shine to those luscious locks. Whole grain oats provide one of the best sources of these omega-6 fatty acids, which are essential to normal skin and hair growth. Give this Overnight Protein Muesli recipe a try for an on-the-go option! BONUS: Give yourself a massage. You’ve earned it. Don’t you love getting a scalp massage from your hair stylist? There’s no reason you can’t do it yourself. Using rosemary or coconut oil, gently knead your head for 5-10 minutes to stimulate circulation. And yes, this works for your face and neck as well!
