It’s summer, so we gotta be kind to our skin. A recent article from SPS Thrive partner, Hy-Vee, points out six foods and recipes that will improve skin health — some even help protect your skin from the sun. Here’s a quick glimpse at what you’ll find:

1. Spinach

“Spinach and other leafy greens, along with cantaloupe, carrots, pumpkin, red bell pepper, squash, sweet potatoes, and tomatoes, have vitamin A, which is a big-time helper for your skin.”

2. Berries

“Frozen or fresh berries, along with Brussels sprouts, citrus, bell peppers, and kiwi contain vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant.”

3. Lean Meat

“Protein-rich foods may encourage collagen production, and many contain B vitamins, like biotin, which forms the basis of skin, and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), which preserves moisture and may help prevent acne.”

4. Almonds

“Almonds, asparagus, avocado, collard greens, mango, peanuts pumpkin, red bell pepper, and spinach all contain vitamin E, a nutrient that absorbs energy from UV light and helps prevent sun damage.”

5. Water

“Skin that’s dehydrated may turn dry, tight, and flaky.” No one wants that.

6. Salmon

“Salmon and other fatty fish, such as mackerel and sardines, along with flaxseeds, chia seeds, and walnuts contain omega-3 fatty acids. These fats are critical for maintaining skin function and appearance.”
