5 Foods to Eat for  Younger and Healthier Skin

Eat your way to beautiful skin

What if you could eat deliciously and help your skin keep a young, healthy and beautiful look?  It is very well known nowadays that keeping a healthy  diet is the key to staying full of vitality and away from modern illnesses. Some foods are full of powerful antioxidants that are also great to help your skin fight the aging process and maintain a natural glow.

Here we bring you five of the many foods that are amazingly good for your skin due to their high antioxidant content:

StrawberriesVitamin C fruits

Strawberries have more anti-aging vitamin C per serving than oranges or grapefruit. Vitamin C is a natural anti-oxidant that fights the free radicals that damage cells and break down collagen, leading to fine lines on the skin. Scientific research shows that people who eat foods rich in vitamin C have fewer wrinkles and less age-related dry skin than those who don’t.

 

Green tea

Serving green tea

Green tea is filled with inflammation-fighting antioxidants. The tea’s antioxidants components start to degrade as it cools, so drink it while it’s hot. Different researchers have found that drinking two to six cups a day of green tea may reduce the risk of skin cancer, and may reverse the effects of sun damage by neutralizing the changes that appear in skin exposed to the sun.

Healthy oils

Olive oil

Consuming olive oil provides antioxidants to disarm free radicals and reduce inflammation.  If applied topically, the properties of olive oil are also great to soften your skin. In addition to incorporating olive oil into your daily diet, apply it as a lip gloss and skin soother, as needed.

 

Dark ChocolateHealthy chocolate

Yes! Dark chocolate is good for you, in the right quantities of course! Flavonols, the antioxidants present in dark chocolate, reduce roughness in the skin and protect against sun damage. Eating a few ounces a day will help you achieve a better skin texture and have stronger resistance to UV rays.

Antioxidant fruit

Pomegranates

This fruit is packed with polyphenol antioxidants, which fight free radicals and regulate the skin’s blood flow, giving it rosiness. One pomegranate or a few glasses of juice daily should be enough. Also, if applied to the skin its antioxidants will help to smooth lines and moisturize it.
