From the Inside Out: How to Get Glowing Skin Naturally

Updated on July 15, 2013

The beauty and skincare industry is a 160+ billion dollar industry. And although I have been one of the millions who have bought into the media hype I am becoming more proactive in learning how to take care of my skin from eating properly.

As a society we are encouraged to fix the symptom. In taking care of the symptom of the skin we continue be consumers who throw more money into the billion dollar pot. In doing this we are merely applying the next topical treatment to the outside.

Yes, there is profound wisdom in the idiom "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." It is only in working from the inside out, do we get glowing skin naturally.

This sounds so absurdly simplistic that most consumers merely walk away from such a statement. We are conditioned to think like the masses. Females specifically are targeted from a young age that their outward appearance is the most important attribute. So they feel as if they must participate in the global market of outward appearances and thereby neglect the inside.

This is one of the reasons why there are so many eating disorders among the female population. Eating disorders are also spreading into the male population at an alarming rate.

So let's pay attention. Garbage in garbage out. It is only as we take into account of what goes into our bodies that we begin to experience rejuvenation in the skin.

Looking for the right product? If there is a resounding yes to that question then I want you to rethink it and make a different choice. Decide to increase your daily intake of fresh produce. This will assist in attaining that glowing skin which comes naturally.


Fruit Basket

There are seven fruits that I encourage you to keep in your fruit basket. These fruits will assist your skin in having that natural glow.

It is high in antioxidants and has been shown to fight free radicals which damage the skin.

Strawberries

Tomatoes

Another fruit high in vitamin C which is a storehouse of antioxidants. Great year around fruit.

Prunes

Contains flavinoids and antioxidants to fight free radicals which damage skin. Aids in regularity also.

      This was a great list! Thank goodness I always have a LOT of fruit in my house. I actually mix a lot of these into smoothies so I can get the benefit of them all. I mix it with natural yogurt. Although the list was great, I wish you'd included mangos. It has many great health benefits like clearing skin, fighting cancer, vitamin C and lots more. But loved it overall!
