Let’s look at the foods that can make our skin feel great –
Tomatoes – Let’s start with the simplest and most common food available in every household. Rich in vitamin C, tomatoes are the best source of lycopene, an anti-aging antioxidant that may also help prevent heart disease. But some research suggests that lycopene is more easily absorbed by your body when cooked, so go for it with these comforting stews and soups.
Dark chocolate – For anyone with a sweet tooth I give you another excuse to add chocolates to your diet but of course it has to be dark chocolate. It is a rich source of polyphenols, which act as antioxidants in the body. Additionally, it is believed that a diet high in flavanols and other antioxidants may help protect skin from sun damage and slow skin aging.
Linseed – these seeds have a myriad of health benefits. Improving the health of your skin is one of the benefits. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and lignans which keep the skin hydrated and smooth.
Cinnamon – this one is great for people with oily skin, adding cinnamon to your tea, coffee, smoothies or even desserts can help stabilize blood sugar and can stimulate oil production, thus leading to clear skin.
chia seeds – one of the easiest foods to eat, add to your smoothies or sprinkle on your favorite fruits. Chia seeds are the richest source of omega-3 fatty acids that provide building blocks for healthy skin cell function and new collagen production to keep skin’s foundation strong and wrinkle-free.
Ginger – If you look at your facial care ingredients, you might be surprised to find ginger in there, but the reason it’s added is because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which have a soothing effect on the skin. No wonder people like to add ginger to their teas.
Lawyers – if wrinkles and pigmentation bother you, consider adding this exotic and delicious ingredient to your diet. Its high monounsaturated fat content may help promote healthy skin by supporting a healthy skin membrane. Plus, its high antioxidant content can fight free radicals that damage and age the skin.
