Want beautiful skin? One of the ways to achieve the flawless skin look is by eating foods like these. Here are the best foods to eat for healthy skin!
Yes that’s right I said avocados, that thing that you know as guacamole. Avocados are a good source of vitamin B, that can help to prevent dry skin, brittle nails and hair. The fruit is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which have been proven to hydrate and shield the skin by lowering the risk of premature aging caused by ultraviolet radiation. Avocados’ potent source of fats also helps you absorb many of the fat-soluble vitamins that also help protect your skin from sun damage.
Green tea is a skin friendly drink. It is good is a drink that is not harsh to your body and helps to detox the chemicals in your skin. Green tea contains catechins, an antioxidant with proven anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. Drinking 2 cups a day not only helps prevent skin cancer but might also reverse the effects of sun damage by neutralizing the changes that appear in sun-exposed skin.
Tomato paste is helpful to prevent sunburn when you combine it with olive oil, everyday for ten weeks. The nutrients in tomatoes such as the antioxidant lycopene, help to slow down cellular damage.
Like me, you may not be a fish fan. Although salmon is one of the best things for healthy skin. It contains astaxanthin, which is a carotenoid that improves skin elasticity.
Eggs contain a great source of protein. They are contain vitamin B, that will help prevent dry skin. The yolk is rich in vitamins, as well as contain the “beauty vitamin”. It has shown it also helps protect skin from acne, rashes, and even dryness.
Pomegranates, are a great way to help your skin create more collagen. Collagen is the main protein that is found in the skin, and the connective tissue. Applying pomegranates to your skin directly will help your skin create more collagen and will help speed up healing.
Walnuts contain Omega-3s and fatty acids, the same source that is found in fish. If you are no a fan of fish, you can get your source of Omega-3s from walnuts. Walnuts help shin your hair, and help making you skin feel smoother and look younger.
Beans are a source of protein. During digestion, the proteins in beans break
down into amino acids. These amino acids then help to speed and repair the regeneration of skills cells and collagen.
Dark chocolate contains the antioxidants called flavanols. Flavanols reduce roughness in the skin and provide sun protection.
Blueberries are one of nature’s finest superfoods. Blueberries contain antioxidants that help your body reject cell-damaging, skin-aging free radicals. Blueberries are also a great source of probiotics which can help heal your immune system and alleviate inflammation-induced skin conditions.
