Everybody wants radiant, healthy skin. In fact, it’s so desirable that people will spend hundreds of dollars on a single jar of cream that promises a more beautiful complexion. And while the things that you put on your skin are certainly a cornerstone of a gorgeous complexion, the things that you put into your body can impact your skin’s appearance as well. If you want smooth, radiant skin, try adding these 5 greens to your diet.

Barley Grass If you’re passionate about your skin, you know that UV rays are extremely harmful to your complexion. It’s why you should avoid tanning booths, use sunscreen every day (especially on your face), and avoid sunburns as much as you possibly can. But sunscreen isn’t the only thing that can protect you from the sun’s harmful rays.

Barley grass contains superoxide-dismutase enzymes. These can help to protect your skin from UV rays by providing relief to damaged skin cells. That protection and relief helps to prevent early signs of aging, giving you healthier, more youthful-looking skin.

Wheatgrass
Did you know that the levels of toxins in your liver directly impact the appearance of your skin? Wheatgrass gives you a more radiant complexion by detoxifying your liver, working from the inside out for beautiful skin. Additionally, it can help to reduce inflammation, which can reduce any signs of redness or irritation in your skin—an important bonus if you’re prone to acne.

Chlorella
Chlorella is a single-celled green algae that has powerful detox properties. Chlorella binds to heavy metals in your body and pulls them out of your system; heavy metals can cause breakouts, so consuming chlorella can reduce the frequency of those unsightly flare-ups. It also reduces oxidative stress brought on by poor diet, pollution, and everyday stress in your life, all of which impact the appearance of your skin. Finally, chlorella also aids in cellular reproduction, which helps your skin to regenerate and have a more radiant appearance.

Spirulina
Spirulina is another detoxifier that binds to and pulls heavy metals out of your body. Additionally, it combats candida overgrowth. Candida is a bacteria that can cause an unsightly rash if it begins to reproduce too quickly in your body.

Alfalfa Grass
Finally, alfalfa grass helps to reduce inflammation throughout your body, including in your skin. It also reduces free radicals in the body and protects cells from damage—both of which are important for a radiant complexion. Alfalfa grass is also high in vitamin C, which encourages collagen production in the skin; collagen is what gives skin elasticity and “bounce” to prevent wrinkles and provide a smooth, youthful appearance. And, of course, all that vitamin C will give your immune system a boost as well.
