A Dietitian’s Top 5 Foods For Clear Skin
How can you have clear skin just by eating food? I sat down with a lifelong friend and successful dietician, Isabella Maranzano to discuss her top five foods she recommends to achieve clear skin! Looking to boost your skin health? Check out her list here:
1 - Broccoli
Broccoli is a great source of antioxidants, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K, which can prevent wrinkles. The common vegetable also contains Lutein, a carotenoid that works like a beta carotene. Lutein can help protect the skin against damage caused by blue light or high energy sources causing oxidative damage to the skin.
If you’re looking to incorporate broccoli into your skincare routine, check out ESW Beauty’s Green Reset Anti Aging Raw Juice Sheet Mask which contains broccoli extracts!
2 - Almonds
Almonds are rich in Vitamin E, which can help prevent cell damage on your skin. The nut is also a good source of copper and Linoleic acid which play a role in skin pigmentation and preventing dryness.

3 - Chia seeds
Chia seeds contain omega-3 fatty-acids which keep the skin’s foundation strong, reduce acne scars, and delay aging. These little seeds are also packed with zinc which aids in fighting acne and pimples effectively. Regularly, chia seeds are able to fight off acne-causing bacteria and redness.
4 - Avocado
Full of vitamins such as Biotin and Vitamin E, avocados are a hydration powerhouse that help nourish and protect against skin damage. Avocados also contain healthy fats which can increase the elasticity and firmness in your skin.

5 - Dark Chocolate
And of course, the tastiest option, dark chocolate. Dark chocolate contains flavanols which reduce the rough textures in the skin, aids in protecting against sun damage, improves blood flow as well as increases skin density. The flavanols in the yummy dessert can leave the skin feeling soft and smooth by removing dead skin cells.
Isabella said “Overall, focusing on a diet filled with fruits and veggies and drinking plenty of water will promote healthy and clear skin. Always think about “Eating the rainbow” to make sure you are consuming a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.”
