PRLog - April 4, 2013 - SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. -- Let’s face it – you have to stay on top of your skin care routine if you want to look and feel fantastic year-round. Sunscreens, exfoliating and consuming the right foods are all important ways to keeping your skin in tip top shape. After all, you are what you eat!
Delicious Food Tips to Feed Your Skin
Here are three nutritious foods that will help keep your skin looking beautiful and healthy through all seasons:
Oranges. Citrus fruits like oranges are said to be among the best foods for your skin’s health. The idea is to make sure you’re receiving plenty of Vitamin C, which can help protect your skin against sun damage. Citrus fruits are also filled with other antioxidants designed to neutralize harmful free radicals, which may be responsible for aging your skin as well as more severe conditions, including some forms of cancer. Try to work at least one citrus fruit into your diet every single day – it can even be as simple as eating one for breakfast or for a mid-afternoon snack.
Green leafy veggies. If you’ve never been a fan of salads, perhaps now it’s time to give the greens another try. Studies have shown that Vitamin A, which vegetables contain in spades, can help repair skin and hair. Because of this, incorporate into your diet a wide variety of dark veggies such as spinach, arugula, and lettuce, which are rich in Vitamin A.
Salmon. Perfect for both summer barbecues and romantic evenings at home, salmon is jam-packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which is why this delicious fish has been hailed for its skin-rejuvenating properties. These essential fats allow good nutrients to enter cells and promote smaller pores. It’s a win-win situation no matter how you like to prepare it.
With so many delicious ways to keep your skin looking and feeling radiant, you never know what unexpected tip might become the next staple of your skin care routine.
