A Diet to Help Balance Your Hormones

date: 2018-03-16

If you balance your hormones, you can have better skin!

And want even better news? You don’t have to go through any scary hormone replacement therapy to balance your hormones. You can balance hormones and get better skin simply by eating the right foods.

Almonds – These delicious nuts help balance your hormones on a couple levels. To start with, they increase a hormone that helps maintain blood sugar levels. That’s important because blood sugar is connected to so many other systems, including ones that keep your skin looking nice. Once your blood sugar levels get out of whack, the dominos fall and you end up with acne. Then, almonds also help keep your testosterone hormones balanced. When you end up with too much testosterone, your skin looks thinner, less healthy. So, have a handful of almonds a day and look your best!

Antioxidant rich vegetables – Honestly, any vegetables will be good for your skin, but when you are looking specifically to balance your hormones, focus on the veggies that have the most bang for their buck. The deeper, richer, brighter the color, the more antioxidants a vegetable has. So stock up on dark leafy greens, deep red tomatoes, and bright yellow peppers, just for starters.

Avocados – Yes, the healthy fats in avocados help keep your skin plump and dewy, but avocados do more than that. They also help balance your hormones by helping control cholesterol. Aim for half an avocado a day, for best results. Don’t overdo it, though, because they are high in calories.

Broccoli – Also an antioxidant rich vegetable, broccoli still deserves its own spot in this list. It helps your liver process estrogen, keeping that hormone in balance. And in case you don’t realize, estrogen boosts collagen levels so your skin stays firm and supple!

Butter – It’s not often you find butter on a list of healthy foods, but when it comes to balancing your hormones, clarified butter really can be helpful! Clarified butter is an excellent source of vitamins A, D, E, and K2 – which are some of the building blocks for proper hormone production.

“Clean” proteins – You may have heard the phrase “eating clean” or “clean eating” but may not be 100% sure what that means. Well, here’s what it means in terms of using “clean” proteins to balance your hormones. These are proteins that are organic, grown or raised without antibiotics or other chemicals, and, in the case of animal proteins, free-range and well-fed.

Eggs – A single egg per day is enough to give your skin the support it needs and to help balance your hormones. Just be sure to eat the whole egg, not just the whites, because the yolk is where you get the benefits.

Quinoa – While other grains are good for your health but not necessarily your skin, quinoa is good for your health and your skin. Like almonds, quinoa has a low glycemic index, which means it helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels…which means it helps keep your hormones balanced…which means it keeps your skin glowing!

Salmon – First, you ate salmon because it was good for your heart. Then you ate it because it was good for your brain. Now, you can eat salmon because it helps balance your hormones! Plus, it helps your body with healthy inflammatory responses to help soothe hot acne breakouts.

And just like that, you’ve got a diet that will help balance your hormones so your skin looks better than it has in years!
