When it comes to healthy looking skin, what you put in your body may matter more than what you put on it. You probably think about how nutrition affects your internal health and your weight but eating the right foods can also improve the quality of your skin. Here’s what to add to your diet to improve the health of your skin:
Eating any tomato-based foods such as sauce and tomato juice may help clear up acne. Though there’s no set recommendation for how much lycopene (powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes) you should eat to combat stubborn spots. Eat tomato-based foods in your diet between three and five times a week. Lycopene may also help defend your skin from UV rays. Antioxidants combat free radicals produced from excessive sun exposure.
Green tea fights acne based on its ability to lower levels of an acne-producing hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Take three to five cups of green tea every day in order to reap the full benefits for your skin. This power drink is also packed with antioxidants, which will help your skin look younger and healthier overall, says Koo.
Deeply colored berries such as blueberries and cherries are loaded with antioxidants, which help your body fight off blemishes. So, eat as much berries as you can and look radiant naturally.
Fish and Seafood
Fresh, wild salmon is high in essential fatty acids and natural anti-inflammatory compounds which help to keep our skin smooth and supple. Fish oil has been found to be effective in reducing wrinkle formation and thinning of the skin by boosting collagen and elastin levels.
Check the packaging of your skin products and you’re likely to see ceramides in the list of ingredients. These lipid molecules, which help your skin maintain its moisture, can also be found in foods such as brown rice. When you eat naturally occurring ceramides, they get incorporated into the outer layer of your skin and help it maintain its hydration. “There are clinical studies that showing that ceramides [you eat] significantly improve hydration.
Have these in your diet and notice the glowing skin in just few weeks.
Look good & Stay healthy!! Would wait for your comments..
