5 Foods for Healthy Skin

chia and flax seeds

1. Chia and Flax Seeds

Chia and flax are both “superfoods,” meaning they are rich in all kinds of vitamins and minerals that are great for your overall health, and your skin is no exception. Both of these seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which are wonderful for your skin.

Try adding chia or flax to your morning green smoothie for an omega 3 boost. You can also add them to baked goods, cereal, and salads.

One note about flax seeds: your body can’t digest whole flax seeds, so you’ll need to either grind them yourself or purchase flax meal to get the benefits from this wonder food.
