Having great skin can be a constant challenge for a lot of people. For some, all they need to do is wake up in the morning and enjoy the fresh face looking back at them.

Superfoods For Clearer, Healthier Skin & Complexion
Spinach, Kale and other greens
Green vegetables like spinach, brussels and broccoli are rich in vitamin K. Vitamin K is a powerhouse nutrient when it comes to the skin. It improves coagulation and blood circulation amazingly well. Spinach is also loaded with zinc, which can stop acne breakouts and inflammation. Spinach and other greens also contain something called zeaxanthin. Essentially, this is an antioxidant which can protect skin and help even out skin tone.
Tip: Make sure you add a bit of citrus (e.g. lemon) if you are having raw spinach, as this helps your body to be able to absorb all of the nutrients.
If you noticed that your skin got worse after Christmas, or after a unhealthy fast food meal, or a night out, you should try eating more cinnamon.
Cinnamon helps to stimulate blood flow and circulation which brings nutrients and oxygen directly to the skin. It can also (according to some studies) balance blood sugar levels and stimulate oil production in the skin. So, cinnamon is great in cookies, lattes and for your skin! Who knew! Before you start adding cinnamon to everything you eat, hold off just until the end of our article to hear our secret about all these superfoods.
