While regular facials and a good skincare regimen can keep your skin looking radiant, what you eat is what will give you that youthful glow all season long. A healthy diet really is the secret to beautiful skin. It can be challenging to eat fresh and healthy foods during the colder months, but there are several fall foods that will help your skin stay healthy, resilient, and radiant. A few tweaks to your diet could be all it takes to have beautiful skin.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
Here are five fall foods for glowing skin:[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
[b]#1: Pumpkin[/b][/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
Pumpkin facials are a treat for the skin during the fall months but you can also eat pumpkin to get your dose of beta-carotene, vitamin C, and antioxidants. [url="http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20481238_8,00.html"]Dermatologist Kenneth Beer tells Health.com[/url] that pumpkin also has hydrating properties. Pumpkin is a fairly versatile ingredient and you can use it in dozens of sweet and savory recipes.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
[b]2. Berries[/b][/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
Blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries are high in antioxidants and some berries also contain a compound called ellagic acid. [url="http://vitalitymagazine.com/article/my-favourite-antioxidant-foods-for-fall/"]Ellagic acid is known to combat carcinogens[/url], according to Vitality Magazine. Berries could protect your skin from oxidative stress and are a good source of healthy sugar. I like to mix a small handful of blackberries and blueberries into a protein shake for breakfast. It's a great way to sweeten up the protein shake without adding sugar or artificial sweeteners.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
[b]3. Sweet Potatoes[/b][/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
Add this healthy carb to your plate for an energy boost and also enjoy some skin benefits. Like pumpkin, sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene and are also loaded with vitamin C. Trade bread or pasta for a sweet potato this season for a healthier and satisfying meal. Sweet potatoes are also a good source of fiber so they'll support a healthy digestion. Your skin will look better when your digestive system is working properly, so make sure you're eating plenty of fiber-rich foods each day.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
[b]4. Carrots[/b][/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
Orange and yellow foods contain phytonutrients and antioxidants that support a healthy lifestyle, and these nutrient-rich foods can also be good for the skin. The [url="http://www.eatright.org/Public/content.aspx?id=6442472289#.UI6em4Z00bw"]Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reports[/url] that flavonoids and antioxidants in dark orange foods like carrots may even reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. Make some carrot muffins this season, eat raw carrots with hummus as a snack, or just add some sliced carrots to salads and stews for a boost of nutrition.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
[b]5. Cranberries[/b][/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
Eat cranberries this season to get plenty of vitamin C into your system. [url="http://www.cranberryinstitute.org/healthresearch.htm"]The Cranberry Institute reports[/url] that cranberries contain more antioxidants than other commonly-eaten fruits. Fresh cranberries and homemade cranberry sauce can be a tasty addition to your favorite fall recipes. Dried cranberries are also a good source of fiber and can be incorporated into many of your baked goods.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=georgia, serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]
