What is the best food for your skin?
Everybody wants that radiant skin that looks like a third-trimester glow without the pain of labor. What we keep forgetting is that your body is dependent on food intake. What you eat defines how your body works, how your skin looks. All beauty products are just there to enhance beauty. You need to first create a soft natural glowing skin by choosing proper food that compliments your skin. The keyword here is antioxidants and other nutrients that are needed by your body to make your skin more youthful and radiant. Antioxidants are extremely imports as they act as a buffer between your skin and harmful elements
Why is proper food necessary for the skin?
Some Nutrients that compliment your skin protects your skin from sun’s rays, some of these nutrients also help in hydrating the skin
, Some nutrients limit skin damages from harmful molecules known as free radicals, Some processed, refined snacks add skin inflammation which can cause redness, acne and a breakdown of structure that leads to sagging
What foods to eat to get antioxidants for glowing skin:
There are a lot of foods that you can eat to get the proper amount of antioxidants for eg: blueberries, oranges, pomegranates, tomatoes, watermelon, avocadoes, Kale, Sweet Potatoes, Wild Salmon, Green tea.
You might have already guessed the above food and fruits. A lot of these fruits have vitamin c which keeps the skin firm and fights the appearance of aging. This food provides a lot of antioxidants and fight free radicals and promote good skin tone. Fruits like avocados have vitamin a and e which guards your skin against UV rays and keeps the skin moisturized.
Now there are some foods that you think might not be good for you but actually are. One of them is Fatty Fish. Coldwater fatty fish including herring, sardines, and salmons as they provide omega 3 fatty acids that helps to reduce the risk of skin cancer and also reduce damages or ultraviolet rays.
Other things you can eat for omega 3 and 6 can be Walnuts which can be a substitute if you are a vegetarian.
Let’s see, we need to give you a list of other things that can be really good for your skin. If you see Almonds, Sunflower seeds or flax seeds, then go for it!
