Healthy Skin is extremely important for good health,
since it is the largest organ and protects the rest of your body from germs and infectious.
Everyone has a favourite face cream or treatment, but healthy skin starts with nourishment from within.
Older cells are constantly shed and replaced by younger ones and a steady supply of key nutrients is essential to support this rapid growth.
Eat the correct balance of foods and you’ll feed your skin the vital nutrients it needs to help it stay soft, supple and healthy.
Here are types of food and vitamins that help your skin look fresh and healthy.
- Orange, carrot, or slice of cantaloupe: They’re loaded with vitamin A.
You can also find it in leafy greens, eggs, and low-fat dairy foods.
When you use a skin product with vitamin A, your wrinkles and brown spots may look better.
Those products, called retinoid, are common prescription treatments for acne and other skin conditions.
- Avocados: They are high in healthy fats. These fats benefit many functions in your body, including the health of your skin.
- Tomatoes: Tomatoes are a great source of vitamin C and contain all of the major carotenoids,
including lycopene. Lycopene is used as a facial cleanser.
Apart from eating them as salad, one can also peel them, and use the peeled-off skin as a mask on the face. The high lycopene content can help one protect their skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
- Green Tea: Green tea is rich in many antioxidants, which, as we know, contribute to cell regeneration in the best possible way. It contains the ingredient EGCG,
which can reactivate cells. When you drink 2-3 cups of green tea a day or apply it topically, you’ll be able to see a marked difference in the onset and appearance of fine lines, age spots and wrinkles.
