Foods that nourish, give you energy and help to keep your body feeling great on the inside will also contribute to helping you look your best on the outside.

I had a conversation with the nurse practitioner in my dermatologist’s office about nutrition and overall wellness. That conversation leads to, of course, skin care and by simply adding nourishing whole foods to our diet we can help protect and nourish our skin.

The nutrients found in these foods help nourish the skin from the inside out:

Water
Green tea
Coconut oil
Pomegranates
Sweet potatoes and carrots
Berries
Dark chocolate
Greek Yogurt
Probiotics
Walnuts
Almonds
Avocado
Fatty fish (salmon and mackerel)
Green leafy vegetables
Blueberries
Healthy Oils (cold pressed or expeller-pressed)

  1. Very nice post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to mention that I have truly enjoyed surfing around your weblog posts.

    After all I will be subscribing on your rss feed and I hope
    you write again soon!

  2. Yes, I will save this post to go back to again, and again. I love this, and I want my skin to look young for as long as possible.

  3. I had no idea that blueberries make your skin glow. That is great to know and I imagine that it must be due to the antioxidants.

  4. You’re right our intake help us to nourish and take care our skin. All the food above thankfully are on my menu list. I like them all. In my origin country, Indonesia, we combine the skin nourishment with herbal drink (from herbs and roots of plants).

  5. Megan McCoig says:

    Like this post a lot! Need some more foods to give me great skin, I can’t rely on water forever! Will have to eat some more raspberries – my faves!

  6. I think it’s so easy to forget that food and skin are connected! I need to print out that list and hang it on my fridge. My favorite food on it is raspberries…I could eat them all day long!

  7. I am so happy to see that most of the foods I eat are on this list! I really do need to increase my water intake, though.

  8. That’s so interesting! i knew some of them helped to nourish, bt not all of them. for ex, i know (healthy) fats are awesome for us, but i thought they only helped the skin topically!
    especially with summer close, i’m trying to make it a point to only consume wholesome fresh foods. we’ve been a bit lax on buying snacks, even if they are “healthier”

  9. Wow I am intrigued by this B-Lovely Skoop! I will have to check it out. I realize I need to take better care of my skin if I want it to look good when I’m older!

  10. Cheryl Harris says:

    Avocados everyday! Yum!!! and lots of water! Love your website! Lots of great info!

  11. Great post! I need to eat more foods that nourish the skin. The two foods I eat are avocado and salmon.

  23. I drink A LOT of water, especially now that I’m nursing our littlest one! Greek yogurt, spinach, avocado, blueberries and dark chocolate are some of my other favorites.

  24. I cook with or eat many of the things on your list and I try to drink enough water (that’s my downfall though…)

  25. I love so many of those foods. Definitely cheaper than botox too. LOL! I used to work in a pizza place and we joked that we’d never get old since our faces were always covered in oil

  26. I pretty much eat all the things you listed regularly. It’s the other things in ADDITION to those things I should cut out for better skin. 😀 And drink more water!

  27. Great tips! I find that when I’m drinking more water my skin looks better. And eating less garbage. But WATER! WATER is easier! 🙂

    1. Hi Aimee. Staying hydrated makes the biggest difference with how I feel and look overall. It’s kind of amazing!

      Have a great weekend 🙂

  28. I love Skoop! I eat lots of healthy fats, fruits and veggies to glow!

  29. Too bad your giveaway is only for US Residents. I can’t participate in any giveaways any more 🙁 Ah well, I’ll go eat some dark chocolate avocado pudding and cry about it — at least it’s good for my skin 🙂

    Great list, Jill! Healing foods are amazing!

    1. I”m sorry Erin! I’ll be right over to join you for choc avo pudding. Yum! And our skin will thank us!

  30. First of all, your daughter is beautiful!
    Secondly, I eat a lot of the foods you listed as well as collagen chews for my skin and nails :).

    1. Tell me more about the collagen chews! Curious. She is beautiful isn’t she 🙂

      1. I use Neocell Beauty Bursts. The fruit punch flavored ones are yummy. I usually have 2 after dinner to satisfy my sweet tooth 🙂

  31. Love the photo of you adn yoru daughter. <3

    Foods I am currently eating to help nourish my skin… WATER. 🙂 Yup… not doing much else which is why my skin looks old. ha

  32. Happy Friday!! You and your daughter are beautiful! She is lucky to have a mother like you to keep her on track with healthy eating and therefore healthy skin. I definitely have my mother to thank for that as well 🙂

  33. Happy Friday! great post! We all know you can smear the most expensive cream all over but if you don’t feed and hydrate with great foods it doesn’t matter! I love Skoop, just finished a serving myself! I follow you everywhere my friend! Have a great weekend!

    1. It’s true Mary Beth. If you’re not taking care of the inside the outside stuff doesn’t matter. That’s true with so many things in life 🙂

  34. i feel like we often post on similar topics on the same day haha great list of foods for healthy glowing skin, jill!

  35. I eat most all the foods on that list but I also take a daily probiotic as well.

  36. My favorites are spinach, blueberries–really any berries, matcha green tea, turmeric lemon tea, and walnuts. This is such a good plan. We all need reminders of all the great benefits of these incredible foods! Thanks for posting!

  37. Your list of foods is pretty much my diet…love me some fatty fish, dark chocolate and avocados! 🙂 B-Lovely is awesome too, so tasty!

  38. I never really thought about what I eat and how it improves my skin…(hanks for the reminder!

    In looking at your list, I would say I eat/intake many of those listed:
    Water
    Green tea
    Coconut oil
    Pomegranates
    Sweet potatoes and carrots
    Berries
    Dark chocolate
    Greek Yogurt
    Almonds
    Avocado
    Fatty fish (salmon and mackerel)
    Green leafy vegetables
    Blueberries
    Healthy Oils (cold pressed or expeller-pressed).

  39. I’m surprised about pomegranates! Never thought those. I’d say eating veggies for sure and just keeping up with water. Whenever I’m dehydrated, you can totally tell in my skin and such.

    1. Hi Heather, I think hydration makes the biggest difference in so many things, especially how my skin looks and feels. It’s kind of amazing.

  40. Great, I eat all of those! I definitely want to give Skoop a try, I’ve heard so much about it! Thanks for the link up and have a great weekend!

    1. I know! I knew dark choc was healthy but I didn’t know it was good for your skin. Score!
