6 Skin Boosting Breakfast Recipes

Screen Shot 2016-11-18 at 11.16.23 AMThe foods in your kitchen are just as important for keeping skin soft, smooth, and glowing as the products on your bathroom shelf.

Good nutrition is a fundamental building block of healthy skin. The recipe for a perfect complexion starts with a well-rounded diet of healthy fats, protein, fruit and vegetables. But it also includes an array of superfoods that feed your skin in beautiful ways.

I’ve compiled 6 delicious, nutritious, glow-promoting recipes from some of our favourite foodies so that you can start your day by nourishing your body and nourishing your skin.

BEAUTIFUL BERRY SMOOTHIE – MADELINE SHAW 

Containing anthocyanins (powerful antioxidants that help to protect the skin from free radicals), and packed with Vitamin C, blueberries can help to promote the production of collagen – keeping your skin firm! The blueberry has been identified as containing the most antioxidants per serving of any fruit.

HUEVOS RANCHEROS WITH GUACAMOLE – HEMSLEY + HEMSLEY 

WHY WE LOVE IT: EGGS

Rich in amino acids and Vitamin A, Eggs contain two key nutrients that are vital to skin health: choline and lutein. Choline builds up the fatty portions of cell membranes that are responsible for healthy, smooth skin. It also regulates the levels of the B vitamins in our bodies which are needed to produce the proteins that keep skin firm and smooth. Lutein, the second key nutrient in eggs, is an antioxidant that protects the elasticity of the skin and prevents skin damage.

SUNSHINE CITRUS SALAD – MY NEW ROOTS 

WHY WE LOVE IT: GRAPEFRUIT

When consumed fresh, Vitamin C helps to reverse skin damage caused by free radicals such as the sun and pollutants. It stimulates collagen production, causing new skin growth, wrinkle reduction and an overall smoother texture. Containing lycopene (hence the red colour), grapefruit is also great for reducing inflammation of the skin and redness.

APPLE, PEAR, AVOCADO AND SPINACH DETOX SMOOTHIE – DELICIOUSLY ELLA 

WHY WE LOVE IT: SPINACH

Green leafy vegetables like spinach are rich in alpha lipoic acids (ALA). ALA is one of the most powerful anti-aging agents available. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory, decreasing under-eye circles, puffiness, redness and blotches while minimising the appearance of wrinkles.

ULTIMATE SCRAMBLED EGGS AND SMOKED SALMON – TESS WARD

WHY WE LOVE IT: SALMON

Rich in Omega 3 fatty acids that nourish the skin by reducing the body’s production of inflammatory substances, decreasing clogged pores. Salmon contains high amounts of dimethylaminoethanol which helps to strengthen cell membranes and guard against the deterioration that causes premature ageing. DMAE can also decrease the production of arachidonic acid, which leads to wrinkle formation and sagging of the skin.
