I don’t know about you, but I want my skin to be on point! Especially with my wedding being six months away. Have you ever wondered which foods will give you the glow? I’m talking about that amazing skin glow like you’ve spent a week detoxing on a tropical island. I know I wanted to know – my face has been breaking out lately, and it’s beyond annoying. So, I did some digging and found what will help prevent these breakouts and give me that ‘glow’ we all crave so badly. Especially on our big day.
But first, why am I talking about eating sulfur for glowing skin?
Great question! Sulfur is not just the mush of yolk found in deviled eggs at your annual office Christmas party that you avoid like the plague.
Sulfur is actually the secret beauty mineral for glowing skin!
Why else would people flock to mineral hot springs to soak in water that smells like rotten eggs?
Sulfur helps your body digest fats, controls the metabolism of carbohydrates and rids the body of waste that clogs skin pores causing a lackluster complexion.
So what is the fastest way to glowing skin?
Unless you can make it to your local mineral hot springs or spa weekly, your surest way to get glowing skin is to get in the habit of including foods that are rich in sulfur in your daily diet.
You may be surprised to hear that sulfur-rich foods are often the ones you avoid because they tend to make you gassy and smell like rotten eggs when you cook them.
Try your best to embrace these amazingly nutritious cruciferous veggies:
- Bok Choy
- Brussels sprouts!
Here is a healthy and delicious recipe to help you include sulfur in your diet to get the glow:
Get “The Glow” Salad:
- 1 bunch arugula, chopped

How will I know if it’s time for me to eat more sulfur-residue foods?
Glad you asked! It’s time for you to include sulfur-residue foods in your diet if you answer “YES” to any of these questions:
- Your skin is prone to acne – umm hello spot on my chin!
- You have brittle hair and nails

And even if you don’t have any of these symptoms, sulfur is still your go-to for glowing skin!
