Written by Samantha Finch
 
The skin care and beauty industry is a multi-billion dollar business selling various lotions, pills, sprays and creams. While all these products are great supplements, the most important part of skin care is a proper diet. Eating foods that help your skin is the most important thing that one can do to help their skin. All the creams and lotions in the world are worthless if you are eating Big Macs and fries on a daily basis. So add these skin healthy foods to your diet and watch your skin glow.

Below is a list of 7 "Skintastic" Foods for your healthy skin

Beans: Beans are an all around great food for adding fiber and protein to your diet, without the meat. Beans also add B vitamins, among a list of other great benefits that help your brain, nerve cells and skin. A fresh pot of "Turkey Chili" provides tons of nutrients and protein to help keep your skin healthy.

Blueberries: Blueberries are great for skin as they keep the skin elastic; strengthen the gums and help keep up our eyes. Adding Blueberries to your morning cereal is a quick healthy way to keep up your skin.

Cucumbers: Cucumbers have a ton of vitamins and minerals that help increase collagen production in the body. Cutting up cucumbers and adding them to a sandwich or salad is a great way to add these collagen producers to your diet.

Fish: Not only stocked with vitamins, but also with the ultra healthy omega 3 fatty acids. Fish are great at keeping your skin looking fabulous. Try adding 2 servings of fish to your dinner menu a week and watch your skin improve.

Honey: When you are in the mood for something sweet, try adding honey to your tea instead of sugar. Honey provides the body with antioxidant and cleansing properties that cleanse the skin. Adding honey to your daily drink or cereal is always a good idea.

Oats: Forget that no crab diet and add these great complex carbohydrates to your diet. Adding Oatmeal to your diet is quite possibly the number 1 easiest and most effective way to help your heart, skin and weight. A daily fix of Oatmeal and blueberries will add make your skin shine and keep you nice and fit.

Water: While technically not a food, water is by far the number one most important resource that you can put in your body. Keeping your skin hydrated and fresh, water is the key to great skin and a great body. Try this for a week and watch your skin glow and the pounds go off. Drink only water throughout the day, skip the soda, put up the red bull, and you will feel refreshed and looking great.
