You can slather on gobs of skin cream on a daily basis and hope for the best, but if you aren’t eating right, your skin will probably suffer the consequences. (I know, I know. Why can’t brownie fudge sundaes be the key to looking young forever? GAHHHH.)
Let’s eat our way to healthy skin, shall we? Here are some of the very best foods in regards to keeping your skin as healthy and radiant as possible.
Carrots 1 of 7Carrots are full of carotenoids, which are beneficial to health and can protect the skin from sun damage. (But be careful! Too many can alter the color of your skin.)
Spinach 2 of 7Spinach is loaded with lutein, which keeps your eyes healthy and sparkling.
Tomatoes 3 of 7Tomatoes contain lycopene, which has tons of antioxidant properties for your skin.
Blueberries 4 of 7Blueberries are considered by many experts to be the highest food source of antioxidants, which target free radicals that can wreak havoc on skin cells.
Beans 5 of 7Beans are full of antioxidants. Antioxidants are great for skin. The end. (Musical fruit, and all that as well.)
Salmon 6 of 7Add a soft glow to your complexion by feasting on salmon, a fish with one of the richest concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids. These healthy fats "nourish the skin by reducing the body's production of inflammatory substances, decreasing clogged pores, and averting fine lines and wrinkles."
Nuts 7 of 7Nuts aren't just about protein - they can help make skin supple, smooth and younger looking.
