4 reasons why a plant-based diet will give you healthy, vibrant skin

You might not realize that what you eat contributes to healthy skin or so-so skin. Sure, there are lots of remedies these days that promise healthy skin, but you know what? Healthy skin comes from within. It starts in the kitchen.

If you are like most people, you love to eat good food every day. You want to feel great, have tons of energy, and look beautiful. You want to have clear, glowing skin, too.

A plant-based diet is one of the keys to amazing skin. Plant-based diets provide the nutrients needed for great health, of course, but are especially vital for a clear, glowing complexion.

Why? Let’s find out.

Here are four reasons why a plant-based diet will help create beautiful, vibrant skin:

Plant-based food provides vitamins and minerals.

Healthy, balanced plant-based diets provide more vitamins and minerals than a diet rich in meat or dairy products or processed high-fat foods. They provide vitamins A, C, and E, all of which are necessary and great for your skin. Fruit, like oranges or grapes, are full of vitamins; leafy greens such as kale, chard, or spinach contain a high amount of minerals. A variety of colorful vegetables and fruit will give you an abundance of vitamins and minerals.

It’s easy: the more fresh fruit and vegetables you eat, the more vitamins and minerals you get, and the better your skin looks and feels.   

A plant-based diet is the way to go.

 Water, Hydration, Skin Care, Veestro Health, Health and Wellness, Skin Care, Vitamins

Plant-based food increases your water intake and hydration level.

Imagine eating a large bowl of fruit and nuts for breakfast instead of pancakes with eggs. Or, how about steak and potatoes or tofu with vegetables for dinner. Two of these dishes contain higher water content. The bowl of fruit and the plant-based meal contain more water, which is great for your skin. Water is vital to the human body for carrying nutrients to the cells and for removing toxins that cause disease. Drinking sixty-four ounces of water per day in addition to eating plant-based will create a vibrant, clear complexion. Who doesn’t want that?

The goal is to eat food with high water content, and healthy plant-based options are ideal. There are many plant-based food options these days. Veestro makes it easy for you with fully-prepared, organic, tasty plant-based meals.

Remember, stay hydrated for a healthy complexion. Water is your friend.

 Antioxidants, fruits, skin care, plant-based

Plant-based food provides you with antioxidants.

Antioxidants are chemicals that help your body remove toxins from your cells, bloodstream, and tissues. They are vital for your best health and clear skin. Antioxidants also help remove free radicals, which are molecules sometimes produced when your body breaks down food. These free radicals have been shown to play a role in causing heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. The more antioxidants you eat, the less toxicity and fewer free radicals in your body.

Try blueberries with your breakfast. They contain an abundance of antioxidants. Or, for a snack, grab a cucumber, tomato salad, or a combo of strawberries and apples. You cannot go wrong with an abundant salad of various fruit and vegetables. Your skin will love you!

Eating a healthy plant-based diet will remove free radicals and toxic substances from your body daily, making it easy for your body to create glowing, healthy skin. Learn more about foods to eat for beautiful skin.


Plant-based food reduces inflammation.  

We all experience inflammation from time to time. It is normal to experience this because inflammation is the natural reaction of your immune system to irritation, injury, or infection. Inflammation becomes a problem when it is chronic. 

A body in a constant inflammatory state will not produce glowing skin. Exercise, drinking lots of water, getting eight hours of restful sleep, reducing stress, and eating a healthy, whole, plant-based diet instead of an animal-based diet will substantially reduce inflammation and create the gorgeous skin you crave.

Eat a large orange instead of grabbing that candy bar during the 3 p.m. work slump. You will feel better, reduce your inflammation, and be on your way to having a glowing complexion that is the envy of the workplace.

Turmeric and ginger, both found in many plant-based recipes, are known to reduce inflammation. Leafy greens like Swiss chard, kale, or collard greens are also helpful. Learn more about foods that reduce inflammation here.

There you have it! That glowing, vibrant, beautiful skin can be yours, and it’s easier than you think!  How about committing to going plant-based one day per week? Veestro can help with fully-prepared, ready-to-heat-and-eat plant-based meals.
