Getting plenty of exercise and eating a healthy diet is the best way to keep your body in tip-top shape, but all that hard work you put into choosing the right foods to eat can also have a big impact on your appearance, as well! Skip the creams and serums at the local makeup counter and focus, instead, on putting foods into your body that will give you a natural beauty that money can’t buy! Keep reading to learn the six foods you should eat for healthy, glowing skin and shiny hair!

6. Berries

Want to combat premature aging without spending hundreds of dollars on the latest anti-aging gimmicks? Look no further than your local produce section! Berries are packed full of antioxidants, which combat and minimize the damage done by free radicals (which accelerate the formation of wrinkles and can also lead to more serious health conditions). In addition, the vitamin C in your favorite berries can help tighten and strengthen skin. So, next time you’re in the mood for something sweet, reach for some berries, instead!

5. Spinach

Packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin E and beta-carotene, spinach can help combat wrinkles and even give your skin an extra layer of protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays (but is certainly NOT a reason to skip the sunscreen!). You’ll also get plenty of iron and a boost of protein, as well! Spinach is great both raw and cooked, and can be incorporated into all sorts of other foods, like salads, quiches, smoothies and omelets, making it the perfect food to enjoy pretty much any time of day!

4. Almonds and Walnuts

For a healthy snack alternative, reach for a handful of almonds or walnuts instead of your usual potato chips. You’ll get a boost of vitamin E, which is vital to skin health and radiance, and manganese and selenium in almonds are great for getting that healthy, shiny hair you’ve always craved. Both nuts can help ward off free-radicals, as well, which can help prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging. Toss almonds or walnuts into your favorite salad, or just eat them all by themselves for a healthy, beauty-boosting snack!
