Nourishing Your Skin from Within
Certain foods you should eat to reverse ageing, repair sun damage & hydrate
Hi, I’m Fiona Nicholls, the founder and botanical formulator at Swiss Toniq. As a passionate advocate for radiant skin and overall well-being, I truly believe that feeling your best begins with having glowing skin. It's that inner glow that allows you to show up as your best self in all aspects of life, regardless of age, gender, or skin tone.
Skin health is undoubtedly influenced by various factors, some within our control and others beyond our reach, such as genetics. Using the best quality skincare products such as Swiss Toniq will play a big role but what about anti-ageing your skin from the inside. You need to think about this too so I have compiled a list of foods that are easy to add to your daily diet and proven to really help towards looking and staying younger.
Healthy Fats: Embrace the Nourishing Magic
Healthy fats are true champions when it comes to soothing and nourishing your skin. And the best part is, you can use them both externally and internally. Coconut oil serves as a healthy source of dietary fat. Other healthy fats to indulge in include avocado, nuts, seeds, olives, and olive oil.
The Power of B Vitamins: Your Skin's Best Friends
Vitamins B2, B3, B5, and B7 all play vital roles in promoting skin health. You can find these skin-loving nutrients in a variety of foods, such as nuts, seeds, seaweed, rice, split peas, avocado, leafy greens and broccoli.
Collagen-Boosting Foods: Support Your Skin's Strength
Collagen is the superstar protein that forms a major component of your skin. To encourage its production, indulge in foods that serve as the building blocks for collagen. Avocado, peppers, brussel sprouts, greens, berries, papaya, nuts, and seeds are all exceptional. Synthetic, processed collagen products can help but favour the natural Collagen over synthetic, in helping your tissues, joints, and skin.
Skin-Protective Nutrients: Feed Your Skin at a Cellular Level
Vitamin A, zinc, copper, and selenium are skin-loving nutrients that nourish your skin at a cellular level. You'll find these protective wonders in nuts, seeds, ginger, legumes, leafy greens, and whole grains.
Hydration: The Fountain of Youth
Never underestimate the power of water! Chronic dehydration can be a sneaky culprit behind ageing skin and most of us think we drink enough water but we honestly don’t. I’m guilty! Drinking enough water not only hydrates your tissues from the inside out but also improves circulation and helps clean away rubbish that collects around your cells, ensuring that all those fantastic nutrients from the foods above reach exactly where they need to be.
Nourishing your skin starts from within. With the right foods mentioned above and the right skincare products such as Swiss Toniq, you can unlock your inner vitality and shine inside and out.
