10 Foods for Clear, Glowing Skin – Guest Post from Clear Skin Guru Olivia Jenkins

Happy Friday LPN’ers!

Today I have something special for you, a guest post from the natural beauty Olivia Jenkins, a specialist when it comes to beautiful skin from the inside out. We’ve often discussed on LPN about healthy recipes and foods that are great for your skin and natural beauty; today Olivia is rounding up her Top 10 picks for clear & glowing skin.




There’s nothing we want more than a clear, glowing complexion. But it seems that no matter how many skincare products promise to deliver our hopes and dreams, it seems that the real cure is a healthy balanced lifestyle.

You’re probably wondering what foods are going to provides the most benefit? If you’re a beauty junkie like me, you’ll be surprised to hear that 90% of your skins appearance comes from the inside out.

Top 10 Foods to Eat for Glowing Skin

Spice up your dinner dish with some broccoli or broccolini and watch free radical damage fade away.  Broccoli is packed with vitamin A, B, C, E and K to aid in collagen production and promote clear, beautiful skin. Pair with salmon for a delicious, healthy dinner.

Not only do they taste amazing, they are also packed full of vitamin E and vitamin C, which reduce inflammation and naturally hydrate the skin. Spread some on your gluten free toast for breakfast, enjoy in a smoothie or a raw sweet treat!

Lemon is a powerful way to help your body detox and eliminate waste. It cleanses the liver and helps to build up new enzymes to eliminate toxins in your blood. The result is a clear, radiant complexion. Start your day with a squeeze of lemon in a warm glass of water.

Make these your daily snack and crunch on some of these orange vitamin machines and watch your skin GLOW. Carrots are high in beta-carotene which helps repair theskin and protect against premature ageing. Enjoy raw, cooked or juiced with a hint of mint!

You heard correct, that strange green looking vegetable. Kale is an amazing source of iron and vitamin C, which encourages your skin to product collagen and fights off wrinkles. Add to your daily juice and combine with spinach, apple and carrot for a real skin treat.

The best kept secret for healthier hair and radiant skin and my personal favourite. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants to protect you from ageing and help to even skin-tone. Tip: add ½ cup to your morning smoothie or cereal.

Spinach is one of the most powerful greens you can find. It’s an antioxidant powerhouse and works to delay the ageing process and protect skin cells from free radical damage. (The kind of damage that gives you wrinkles.)

Red Grapes
Full of powerful antioxidants to treat inflammation and improve skin clarity and delicious! Replace your mid-morning latte with a handful of grapes which also double up as a great treatment for your kidneys!

Pumpkin Seeds
These little babies are a super food and are jam-packed with Zinc. Zinc helps promote skin renewal, maintain collagen and protects your cell membranes. Enjoy as a snack on their own, in a smoothie or sprinkle on your morning oats!

Salmon (for the non-vegan LPN’ers)
Packed full of essential fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6, salmon helps to reduce inflammation in our bodies and fight blemishes giving you a clear and clean complexion. Enjoy with some steamed broccolini and a squeeze of lemon.

    I love this post! I am a big believer that nutrition and food are the key to pretty much everything in our bodies. I feel we are too quick to eat processed foods, and think that a multivitamin and slathering on creams and makeup- will make up for it(no pun intended).

    If you can’t eat it, do not put it on your skin. Skincare should be Food-Grade, because about 60% of all products you place on your skin enters the blood steam without being broken down by your liver or digestive system. Toxic and Synthetic cosmetics actually age the skin. Use organic, Food-Grade skincare Always. Here is a company that everyone should try Organic, non-GMO, Skincare. Plus their oils are COLD-PRESSED. I can NEVER find a company that doesnt heat their oils over 500 degrees. News Flash, that causes transfats (free radicals) which do NOT belong on your skin.

    This article is a wonderful, clear guide to healthier skin. Although it’s not a vegetable, I would add water to the list. Drinking at least eight glasses of water a day is a very simple way of getting fairer, healthier and younger-looking skin. Check out for some additional foods to help you on your road to health skin.
