Skin Whitening Foods – Healthy Skin is Beautiful Skin

Everyone has heard the old saying, “You are what you eat.” As more studies between the relationship of health and food products have been conducted, this saying becomes even more profound as we find that everything from looks to energy levels are derived from our diet. Foods containing the proper nutrients[1] and vitamins are necessary to sustain life, but are also necessary for us to look our best. Improper nutrition can lead to straggly hair, broken nails and bad skin. If you wish to look your best and would like even skin tone, there are some skin whitening foods that can help.

While it may be very difficult to believe that there are actually skin whitening foods, consider this: darkened spots can be caused by scar tissue from acne or other skin conditions. By removing things from your diet that cause acne, you can allow the skin to heal over time, and can rejuvenate the appearance of your skin. As the irritations are subsiding, the skin in those areas will lighten back up eventually, leading to even skin tone overall. Papaya is a great food to eat that will provide massive amounts of Vitamin C[2] and is particularly effective for healthy skin.

Almonds are also one of the best skin whitening foods that you can both eat and use for a topical treatment for dark patches on the skin. Almonds are a great source of protein, which the body uses to repair inured tissue. For a topical treatment, soak almonds overnight in a dish of milk, and then puree into a paste, which you will apply and leave on your face for ten or fifteen minutes and rinse off. This process can be repeated as often as necessary, and will go a long way towards lightening the skin tone and improving the complexion.

While there really is not an instant solution for skin whitening foods, by keeping your body healthy, you can make great improvements in your appearance. Darkened pigmentation in the skin can be reduced by increasing circulation with exercise and increasing your hydration. In addition, getting plenty of rest and avoiding sunlight are two easy and proven ways to help your skin look its very best. So if you want foods that will keep your complexion even and glowing, try eating lots of green leafy vegetables, plenty of fruits and nuts, and wholesome grain products. You will look better and feel better for good.
