The journey towards perfect skin we all know begins with a flawless skincare routine. Luckily, Akar Skin has you covered. However, beautiful, glowing skin goes beyond what you put ON your skin, a huge influencer is what you put IN your body everyday. Every bit of food you consume contributes to unexpected breakouts, uncontrollable oiliness & even the lack of vibrancy of your skin tone. That’s why we’ve decided to share some of the Super Foods that will help to balance your skincare regimen, beyond your Akar Skin routine. 

1. Salmon

Salmon is heavy with Vitamin D & omega-3 fatty acids that help to hydrate your skin & reduce the sign of wrinkles. It’s also great for keeping down inflammation & reducing acne. Sounds like a super hero protein to me!

2. Green Tea
Green Tea has been proven to make skin more elastic & smooth, providing a healthier complexion over time. The reason for this is the antioxidants from the tea boost the flow of blood & oxygen to the skin, giving you protection from long-lasting sun damage.

3. Spinach
Spinach is a skin warrior. Packed with Vitamins A, C & E and matched with incredible antioxidant capabilities, spinach will clear your skin from any issue from the inside out.

4. Celery
Celery is full of hydrating capabilities, which is the most important element of healthy skin. Dehydrated skin can cause flaking, breakouts & wrinkles… a celery stalk a day could keep the dermatologist away!

5. Papaya
Want to reduce inflammation and stubborn acne? Papaya is your fruit! It’s also extremely low in caloric intake. Additionally, the high volume of Vitamin C protects your skin from sun damage. Sounds like a win-win!

6. Carrots
Want that lit-from-within glow? Look no further. Carrots contain carotenoid, which provides yellow tones to the skin, leaving you with the beautiful complexion you only dream of.

7. Dark Berries
Not only are dark berries sweet & delicious, they are also abundant with skin clearing antioxidants. Bring a baggie of berries with you to the office & perfect your skin while you work!

8. Beetroot
The beetroot is full of Vitamins A & E, as well as potassium, calcium & magnesium. All of these nutrients combined give your skin the clearing benefits it needs to heal your body starting from the inside.

9. Sweet Potatoes
Help your skin breathe! Sweet potatoes are a vitamin-packed, super-carb that releases sugars over time to improve the circulation of oxygen to the skin.

10. Pumpkin
Roast up your pumpkin seeds with some salt or decorate your favorite salad with them! Each pumpkin kernel is high in zinc, Vitamin E & omegas 3 & 6, making them an excellent source for clearing skin.
