4 Best Foods for Skin and Hair Health

At our Austin barbershop, we provide a wealth of services to maintain the health of our clients’ skin and hair. These services include scalp treatments, organic men’s face treatment, waxing and men’s haircuts. However, the truth is skin and hair health begins at home with the foods you eat. Here are four best foods to include in your diet for skin and hair health.

1. Seafood

Seafood contains many of the nutrients your skin and hair need to remain healthy and look their best. This includes protein, vitamin B12, and essential fatty acids. Some of your best choices include tuna, mackerel, and salmon.

2. Bone Broth

According to Forbes, this superfood helps to strengthen skin, hair, nails, and bones. Additional benefits include improved digestion and boosting your immune system. If bone broth doesn’t sound particularly appetizing, you can use it as a base for stews, sauces, curries, and even smoothies.

3. Citrus

If you’re like most people, you enjoy citrus fruits. This makes it easy to increase your intake of natural antioxidants that support the normal functions of the skin and preserve natural collagen. Your most common options include oranges, lemons, and grapefruit.

4. Tomatoes

Okay, so not everyone likes tomatoes, but if you can stomach it, you’re in for some big rewards. Like citrus, this fruit includes antioxidants and red carotenoid, which provides the following benefits.

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Protect against oxidative stress
  • Improve the texture of the skin
  • Increase the skin’s ability to cope in various environments
