Five Seasonal Diet Swaps that will Support your Skin *

If your skin can be problematic, spring is a great time to clean up your routine to help combat troublesome skin from the inside out. Simple, seasonal food swaps can give your skin a boost, and leave you looking (and feeling) great too! Take a look below at some ideas to get you started.

Swap out potatoes for dark leafy greens

Spring is a great time to start swapping out heavy, carb-laden meals for lighter salads and vegetables. Dark, leafy greens are not only delicious, they are also great for your skin too. The beta-carotene and vitamins found in greens such as chard or cabbage can help to nourish your skin from the inside and help to repair any damage your skin may have.

Have fish instead of red meats

As the weather gets warmer, swap out heavy red meats for healthy fish. Mackerel and salmon are great for your skin, full of healthy fats and nutrients that will support your skin from the inside out. Healthy fats will help to support skin development and can help to make your skin appear plumper and more youthful.

Drink kombucha instead of sugary fizzy drinks

Kombucha is a slightly fizzy, fermented drink made from herbal teas and flavoured with fruits, botanicals or honey. The bacteria and yeast cultures used in the fermentation process are a fantastic support for your natural gut flora. By supporting the bacteria in your gut, you’ll help to reduce inflammation throughout your body, including your skin. Expect to notice fewer breakouts and happier skin when you incorporate kombucha into your diet.

Opt for plant milk instead of dairy

Cow’s milk is linked to skin issues such as acne, and with an ever growing range of plant milk available, it’s a great time to consider ditching cow’s milk altogether. Try swapping out cow’s milk for oat, almond, soy or hemp milk, and notice the difference in your skin in no time!

Choose tomato sauces instead of creamy pasta sauces

Tomatoes get their distinctive colour from a compound called lycopene, which has a whole host of health benefits too. Lycopene acts as an anti-inflammatory and has antioxidant properties, which can help to reduce spots and breakouts and protect your skin from harmful pollutants.

To give your skin an extra boost consider adding a supplement to your daily routine, such as the Perfectil collagen drink from Vitabiotics, to give your skin the support it needs.
