S8 Skin-Boosting Foods You Must Try - Beauty and Sales

 

A lot of factors affect the appearance of our skin: stress, skincare and food, too. Regardless of your skin type (and there's no "good" skin versus "bad" skin anyway), having healthy skin that you enjoy living in is a plus.

It helps to poll the science, according to GRIST, behind the effect of foods in the skin and how food affects its glow. These are, according to the site, some of the best skin-friendly foods:

1. Fatty fish

Omega-3 fatty acids are effective here. It not only protects against cancer and heart disease and promotes brain strength, but a small research review suggested it is also good for your skin. These strong nutrients are commonly found in fatty fish, such as salmon, tuna or mackerel. Omega-3-containing salmon may also play a role in preventing skin cancer.

2. Sunflower seeds

A 2014 research review suggested that taking a combination of vitamins E and C may protect your skin from UV damage. A delicious source of vitamin E is roasted and crispy sunflower seeds. Mix with vitamin C-rich spinach in a skin-strengthening salad. Then add some slices of salmon over the mixture.

3. Olive oil

Including olive oil in your diet may help prevent skin cancer and slow down some signs of skin aging, a research review has suggested. If you're not ready to take off to the Mediterranean ​ ​ yet, you can get a head start by swapping olive oil for processed oils and butter to reap these benefits.

4. Tomatoes

One study suggested that lycopene found in fruits, such as tomatoes and watermelons, may protect against harsh ultraviolet sunlight. Lycopene is more prevalent in processed tomatoes, such as tomato paste or cooked tomato sauce. So, feel free to throw an Italian food dinner party ASAP.

5. Green Tea

Green tea is already perfect for the afternoon relaxation hour, but it may calm your skin, too. A small research review suggested that green tea has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat acne.

6. Red pepper

You may already know the benefits of topical vitamin C on your skin. But taking vitamin C may have skin benefits too. An old 2007 study showed that eating greater amounts of vitamin C was associated with less wrinkles. A recent research review suggested it may also help with skin conditions and cancer.

7. Leafy vegetables

"Beta carotene," which can be found on both purple and orange carrots, is converted to vitamin A, which is a very important nutrient for your skin. Pair these carrots with some leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale to unlock the antioxidant forces lutein and zeaxanthin. It's a combination that may help protect your skin from sun damage. Cut some carrots on a paper green salad for an amount of nutrition.

8. Water

Keeping body hydrated properly contributes to your skin health and pretty much every other function of your body. Science isn't fully aware of all the ways water can help with skin health and hydration, but it's worth getting the amount you need daily.
