It's hard to really know what food is actually good for you, particularly for keeping your skin clear alongside a good skincare routine. One thing about me is that I'm a picky eater and don't like the texture of some foods and makes food a little difficult for me - but today I am sharing with you a few foods I love, which your body and skin will definitely thank you for eating.

Let's start off with drinks, first of all, water. THIS IS ESSENTIAL for every day because it's just so good for you. Hydration is essential now we are in winter, not only does this keep dryness at bay but drinking water regularly also keeps blemishes clear

Peppermint Tea: This is so good at keeping your skin clear and also so good for your digestive system. I love this in replacement for my morning tea. Just make sure its caffeine free 

Red Grapes: They are packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. They also help protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Pineapple: (my fave!!) it helps to promote good skin health, it's high in vitamin C, helps and aids digestion - helping tissue repair and calming skin inside out.

Tomatoes: Rich in vitamin A, C & K. They also have a secret beauty ingredient called lycopene which helps protect skin from environmental agents that can contribute to clogged pores and breakouts

Avacado: Full of vitamin E, C and is also full of healthy fats! Also helps to keep skin looking young and supple... give me a lifetime supply, please

Also, other good foods which are amazing for you are Eggs, Broccoli and Salmon

One food recipe that I love is a Thai green curry! I love to jam pack it full of veg like broccoli, peppers, green beans and baby corn.

When I make it I don't tend to stick to the traditional recipe that you find online but when first making this my go-to was the BBC Food's recipe. The only thing I don't use is fish paste and salt all though I replace it with garlic which is such a good ingredient for you.

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil  - I change for coconut oil
  • 1-2 tbsp ready-made green curry paste
  • Pre-diced chicken 200g
  • 100ml tin coconut milk
  • Garlic
  • Handful green beans, trimmed 
  • Handful peppers 
  • Broccoli
  • Baby corn
  • Black pepper for seasoning 
  • And of course rice. I tend to use brown rice or normal depending how I feel

So there you have it - food that is good for your skin! If you're interested in finding out more foods that are beneficial for the skin then Proactiv+ have a really good page that explains more on the foods and what they are good fo - click here to have a little read.
