We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. We wanted to provide some positive news during this trying time. The following is a list of foods that you can add to your diet for better skin. That’s right, we’re going to tell you to eat more of something instead of less.
Salmon is high in antioxidants and helps to reduce inflammation. Eating fatty acids strengthen your skin’s barrier, while keeping moisture in and irritants out.
Carrots are high in beta-carotene which is the precursor to vitamin A. Also a form of the main ingredient in Retin-A. Carrots have also been found to help with psoriasis.
Green tea is rich in antioxidants, so it helps to reduce inflammation and flush out toxins. Also the green tea bag contains vitamin K which can help with dark circles under the eyes. Drink your tea and then put the bags on your eyes.
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene and can help protect your skin from UV damage. Some say you can reduce your chances of getting a sunburn by as much as 30% if you eat enough.
Avocado is loaded with vitamins A, D and E. Also the healthy fats and phytonutrients work as an anti-inflammatory to detoxify your skin from the inside out.
Walnuts are high in omega-3s, and helps to boost your skin’s collagen. Collagen gives your skin elasticity and plumps cells to leave you looking younger and fresher.
Oranges, strawberries, red pepper and grapefruit are all loaded with vitamin C. The more vitamin C, the less age-related dry skin and wrinkles you will experience.
Sunflower Oil is high in linoleic acid which reduces inflammation and supports your skin cells and membranes.
Hopefully you will enjoy amping up your consumption of these foods and don’t forget to give yourself a little treat every now and then!
