Some of the best beauty products available can be found in your refrigerator. Your skin is hungry for good nutrition to help it look it’s best.
So what’s on the menu for beautiful skin?
Top of the list is broccoli! These little tree shaped vegetables are chock full of vitamin A (the main ingredient in Retin A), collagen-producing vitamin C, and vitamin K (minimizer for dark under eye circles). Broccoli also support’s the skin’s collagen, protecting it against sun damage, reducing skin cell deaths by UV light by up to 29%.
Another excellent source of fine line reducing vitamin C are Red and Yellow Bell Peppers. They also decrease sun sensitivity through antioxidants called carotenoids.
For a healthy way to get Vitamin D without sun exposure, try some salmon. There’s nothing fishy about the way that this protein imbues the body with healthy fatty acids, building the skin’s barrier to keep moisture in and toxins out.
Another source of healthy fatty acids are nuts. Almonds fight the effects of aging with vitamin E. Dip them in dark chocolate (with at least 70% cacao) and you’ll add a skin firming antioxidant.
Leave these on the shelf
A spoonful of sugar might make the medicine go down, but too much sugar and your skin goes through a process called glycation in which sugar molecules attack cells, dulling the skin, speeding up the appearance of aging, causing skin to wrinkle, and making the skin more vulnerable to sun damage.
Just as alcohol loosen inhibitions, it also loosens skin, causing fine lines and wrinkles as it dehydrates the skin. Help combat its effects by being sure to rehydrate when imbibing.
Fried foods also won’t do your skin any favors, free radicals from friend foods’ unhealthy fats attack cells and cause disease and premature aging as well as clogging pores and causing acne.
So, be sure to feed your body good things and your skin will be good to you!
