Eating And Drinking For a Radiant Skin
The phrase “you are what you eat” has the answers to all your queries about your skin like lost glow, premature aging, sagging, dark spots, sunburn, and scars. You will get the lost glow and no signs of aging on your skin, once you start eating the right food.
Start with taking antioxidants that can make the skin’s defense system….
Antioxidants are natural scrubbers that can reduce inflammation and fight aging to keep your skin healthy. Vitamins C (plants and fruits) and E (nuts and seeds), carotenoids (colorful vegetables), and flavonoids (green tea) are natural antioxidants available as plant derivatives.
Take more vitamin C….
It is a super antioxidant as it does many things – strengthen the immune system, support radiant skin and heal blemishes. Also, it plays a crucial role in collagen production in the body. And the good thing is that it is found in abundance in blackcurrants, blueberries, mulberries, Indian gooseberries, tropical fruits such as kiwi, dragon fruit, papaya, berries, and limes.
Boost your collagen level….
Collagen is present in the human body in bones, muscles, tendons, and skin. Its role is to hold the body structure together. Also, it provides elasticity to the skin needed to prevent the formation of wrinkles and creases. Boosting collagen levels will help in strengthening your skin in the long run. For collagen, you should eat eggs, chicken, salmon, and citrus fruits. Or take supplements.
Switch to a selenium-rich diet….
According to studies a selenium-rich diet can protect skin against cancer, UV exposure, and melanin dark spots. And you can increase your selenium intake by consuming more nuts and seeds like almonds, pine nuts, and pumpkin seeds. Fish, eggs, tomatoes, and green leafy vegetables are also good sources of selenium.
Take plenty of water….
Drink sufficient water to stay hydrated as water works as a natural detox by flushing toxins out of the body. Drink water and if you don’t then consume coconut water watermelon, cucumber, orange, strawberry, oranges, and tomatoes to stay hydrated all day. These juicy fruits will complete the water need of your body.
Do natural detox….
Give at least half-an-hour to your body to sweat the toxins out. Exercising like jogging, brisk walking, Zumba, and yoga could produce enough sweetness to flush the toxins out of your body and give you radiant skin.
