Who doesn’t want a glowing, hydrated, and radiating skin and I am sure we all take so much pain to achieve the perfect skin. We follow skin care routines, invest in the best products available, search for DIYs to solve our skin care issues but you know you can apply the best products in the world but if you don’t eat right, you will never get the results that you are working for. Beauty Guru, Blossom Kochhar suggests some foods that can change the way you look.
Let us look at foods that can make our skin feel good –
Tomatoes – let us start with the easiest and most common food available in every household. Rich in vitamin C, tomatoes are the best source for lycopene, an anti-aging antioxidant that may also help prevent heart disease. But some research suggests that lycopene is more easily absorbed by your body when it’s cooked, so go big on those comforting stews and soups.
Dark chocolate – for all those who have a sweet tooth, I am giving you another excuse to add chocolates to your diet but of course it has to be dark chocolate. It is a rich source of polyphenols, which act as antioxidants in the body. Additionally, it’s thought that a diet rich in flavanols and other antioxidants can help protect the skin from sun damage and help slow skin aging.
Flax seeds – these seeds have a myriad of health benefits. Improving the health of your skin is one of the benefits. They are a great source of an omega-3 fatty acid and lignans that keeps the skin hydrated and smooth.
Cinnamon – this one is great for people with oily skin, adding cinnamon to your tea, coffee, smoothies or even desserts can help to stabilise blood sugar levels and can stimulate oil production thus leading to clear skin.
Chia seeds – one of the easiest foods to consume, add to your smoothies or sprinkle on your favourite fruits. Chia seeds are the richest source of omega-3 fatty acids that provide building blocks for healthy skin cell function and new collagen production to keep the skin foundation strong and wrinkle free.
Ginger – if you look at the ingredients in your facials you might be surprised to find ginger in it but why it is added is because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that have a soothing effect on skin. No wonder people love to add ginger to their teas.
Avocados – if wrinkles and pigmentation is bothering you then consider adding this exotic and delicious ingredient to your diet. Its high content of monounsaturated fat may help promote healthy skin by supporting a healthy skin membrane, also its high antioxidant content may fight free radicals that damage and age the skin
