What food are good for glowing skin


First of all I would like to invite you to visit my new website.


I am passionate about health , nutrition as well as skincare. I always use natural products to put onto my face skin and my body, never bought expensive cosmetics, I do my own creams , lip balms and body lotions.

This is the beginning of my new adventure with skincare plus natural products handmade by me from New Zealand.

I am 42 years old with four kids so I am happy to share some of my favorite tools and secrets to have glowing skin.

Hope you come , visit and like my site. Thank you in advance!

Nowadays, it seems like everybody is worried about fine lines, wrinkles, and anything that causes premature aging. And we are becoming much more aware that our physical appearance can be compromised by the foods we eat. Healthy good food is essential to promote glowing healthy skin.

As well as good food, there are also lots of different creams and make-up beauty products available on the market that promise to offset the worrying signs of aging.  These products can be made from either simple, natural organic ingredients – all the way up to complex, artificial synthetic chemicals.  Beauty creams and make-up can be either simple or sophisticated and this fact is reflected in their wide range of prices.

I have always loved natural creams, so, I make my own!  I make body and face lotions, including a natural face mask and much more. Today, I am going to share with you all, my little secrets! I am not a friend of expensive make up, or for that matter, any expensive beauty products at all. I think that some of these products can contain dangerous chemicals, which can be absorbed in to our body and interfere with our vital organs, including the finely-tuned delicate biological processes that take place every second within our body.

A couple of months in the past, I went to a talk with a very interesting professor of Buddhism and he said: “The age and beauty does not come with the wrinkles, the beauty of a woman comes in the brightness of her eyes, so all you ladies, are very beautiful”.  It does not matter how many wrinkles you have. And the more natural you are, the more beautiful you become.  Feeling happy and proud of who you are makes you more beautiful too.”

But you don’t need to spend a fortune to give your skin some love. There are plenty of ways to support healthy skin from the inside-out, through our diet. Generally, by eating a diet that contains a variety of fruits, brightly coloured vegetables, healthy fats, limiting processed foods, and keeping hydrated, then that will support healthy skin.

Here are some of our favorite ways to use diet to support skin health!

1 Grapefruit:

Grapefruit is an excellent source of vitamin C. It has a very sour taste, which I personally don’t like very much, but when I think about the benefits of grapefruit, I would rather eat it than not.    It is a powerful antioxidant that helps keep early signs of aging at bay. As a necessary component of collagen, vitamin C also helps keep skin resilient and supple.

Try grapefruit with shredded coconut, cinnamon, and chopped pecans for a satisfying snack.

Other great sources of vitamin C include bell peppers, strawberries, kiwi fruit, and papaya.

2 Green Tea:

Green tea is a fantastic way to decrease inflammation and support hydration, both of which are essential for good skin health.  Green tea contains powerful polyphenols that help support health in a variety of ways. Research shows that green tea helps reduce the risk of cancer and support the immune system as well as reduce signs of aging.

I love having a cup of green tea first thing in the morning. It’s also a powerful cleanser.

Other great sources of polyphenol include red wine, black tea, and dark chocolate.

3 Walnuts:

Walnuts are a fantastic source of omega. Similar to vitamin C, omega-3 fatty acids work to reduce inflammation or oxidative damage that can lead to skin imperfections.

Other good and healthy sources of omega-3 fatty acids include chia seeds, salmon, and flaxseeds.


Almost as important as the foods you do include in your diet to support healthy skin – are the foods you don’t include.  Evidence shows that a diet high in sugar can lead to signs of premature aging, like wrinkles, fine lines, and decreased skin elasticity.

Excessive sugar can be found in processed foods like cookies and cakes, donuts and croissants, sweetened pastries like tarts and other so called ‘bakers’ confectionery’. Chocolates and candies may also lead to acne or breakouts.

While it is nice to enjoy a treat now and then, be mindful of portion sizes.  Take note of the role these foods play in your diet to best support skin and overall better health.

I am passionate about food and nutrition. Originally from Bogota -Colombia currently living in New Zealand. I am a Nutritionist & Dietitian. After becoming a mum and working in different areas like education, banking and sales, I came to the realisation that I wanted to come back to what I loved and what I have passion for this is Health and Nutrition. In September 2016 I started my online course with the biggest nutrition school in America called Institute of Integrative Nutrition( IIN). The Institute of Integrative Nutrition has given me the knowledge and support about Nutrition in a Holistic way. I have never thought that this would be possible, but after a year I realised that definitely secondary food (food that is on the plate) is part of the puzzle of health and happiness. There is something called primary food which are the pillars that together contribute to a better wellbeing and a better nutrition. Relationships, spirituality, career and exercise plus a having good sleep habits can contribute to a better YOU. I am a Holistic Nutritionist and I am looking forward to taking you on this journey of better habits and a prosperous life. Always smile with gratitude! Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you get to know me. AndreaP
