Five Foods For a Healthy Skin
Five Foods Which Are Good For Your Skin
1/ Foods which contain Selenium: Brazil nuts, Cashew nuts, Fresh tuna, Walnuts, Wholemeal bread and sardines.
Selenium neutralises free radicals and other skin damaging compounds before they can lead to wrinkles. It is similar to vitamin E and actually works with the vitamin to safeguard cell membranes, the protective coating around cell.
Kale contains lutein and zeaxanthine, nutrients that are absorbed and neutralise the free radicals created by UV light.
Steel cut oats are more beneficial than rolled oats as they retain more vitamins, plus it takes longer to break down in your body which helps to keep your blood sugar stable.
4/ Green Tea
The polyphenols in green tea help neutralise harmful free radicals, which can cause significant damage to the skin and accelerate the aging process.
Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C which helps to keep the skin firm and taut by aiding collagen production. They also contain lycopene: the red pigment which also gives them their bright red colour, but also stimulates skin circulation.
