We all know ‘BEAUTY STARTS WITHIN’. What we eat has a direct effect on your skin. Eating a healthy diet, full of good fats, antioxidants, vitamin c, collagen and amino acids can mean the difference between a fresh, glowing complexion and tired, puffy or wrinkly one.
One of the best for your skin:
Famously great for skin, they keep skin looking firm and dewy, help regenerate damaged skin cells, and reduce redness and irritation. Avocados are also full of antioxidant carotenoids that fight free radicals.
Oily fish in general, and salmon in particular, is packed full of omega 3’s, another good fat that does wonders for your skin. These polyunsaturated fatty acids protect the skin from sun exposure, help repair already damaged skin, and keep cell membranes healthy and hydrated. Opt for wild-caught salmon whenever possible.
Tiny but packed with nutrients, blueberries fit the superfoods definition to a T. Blueberries are brimming with disease-fighting antioxidants and phytochemicals, as well as plenty of vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese.
Turmeric is great for skin due to its incredible anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation in the body is really rough on skin, leading to wrinkles and aging in the long term and making skin look puffy and tired in the short term. Eating or drinking dried or fresh turmeric helps fight inflammation, keeping skin looking fresher and younger, while also helping relieve more serious inflammatory skin problems such as eczema and rosacea.
Be sure to pair turmeric with black pepper, which has been shown to enhance curcumin absorption by up to 2,000 percent. Turmeric is also available in capsule form as well for a quick and convenient way to boost curcumin consumption.
This popular beverage is among the most researched antioxidants, and also considered among the most effective for addressing signs of aging, including wrinkles and loss of firmness.
No, Wine doesn’t count! But all types of grapes are a good source of antioxidants for skin, but red grapes are a natural source of the exciting antioxidant resveratrol.
