5 Foods for Glowing Skin January 10 2014

If you were looking for an excuse to devour some food, you’ve come to the right place. Demolish the following 5 foods and reap the skin benefits. Your tastebuds will be thanking you too.

1. Save Skin with Sweet Potato.

These bad boys contain omega 3, fatty acids, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc as well as essential vitamins. They provide anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin plus they’re packed full of antioxidants – which help in fighting skin damage. Sweet potato fries, yes please!

 

2. Soften Skin with Walnuts

Packed full of omega-3 essential fatty acids as well as copper, walnuts help to improve the elasticity of skin and boost collagen production. Grab a handful and eat your way to a better complexion!

3. Protect with Pomegranates

Pomegranate contains polyphenol antioxidants, which helps to protect the skin against free radical damage. They also reduce the signs of sun damage. But most importantly, pomegranate seeds are delicious.

 

4. Boost Skin with Blueberries

These incredible little berries are the key to glowing skin. Experts consider them one of the best sources of antioxidants available. They help to reduce cell damage, keep the skin looking younger and make skin glow. Go on; get to the supermarket and stock up.

 

5. Cut Wrinkles with Capsicum

Studies have found that women who eat green and yellow vegetables regularly, tend to have fewer wrinkles - especially around the eyes. They’re also an antioxidant gold mine, which helps to decrease skin sensitivity. Cut up some capsicum, invite hummus along and you’ve got yourself a party.
