National Healthy Skin MonthDid you know that grocery shopping could be healthy for your skin? The food you put into that grocery bag not only affects what you eat, but it also affects your skin’s healthy glow and luster.

November is National Healthy Skin Month. Um, “face it.” There’s no better time than to “face up” to the facts: certain foods are power-packed with nutrients that delay aging and add resilience and elasticity. Building a better-for-you bag of groceries is one of the easiest ways to improve overall wellness and beautiful skin. Shopping with the NuVal Nutritional Scoring System guides you to better food options. With a 1 to 100 ranking, scores operate on one simple rule – the higher the NuVal score, the more nutritious the food.

According to health.com, some of its top, healthy-skin food choices also earn NuVal’s highest score of 100:

  • Pumpkin (NuVal 100) – Pumpkins contain orange-inducing carotenoids that fight wrinkles. They’re also full of vitamins C, E and A, and enzymes that serve as skin cleansers.
  • Green Tea (NuVal 100) – Green tea contains inflammation-fighting antioxidants. You can also add lemon or lime juice for extra power!
  • Strawberries, raspberries or blueberries (NuVal 100) – In addition to be being delicious, these berries boast anti-aging vitamin C which prevents cell damage and reduction of collagen.
