Antioxidants in Healthy Glowing Skin
Antioxidants in your diet is probably one of the best ways to treat your skin, because your diet can reflect on your skin. Even though there are no miracle foods to make the skin glow, the right nutrients, along with the right skin products, can help your skin protect itself, and look its best:
• Fatty acids: These fats are important to keep the skin barrier strong and hydrated. Find them in:
Salmon, mackerel, avocados, and walnuts
• Vitamin E: Especially when combined with vitamin C, seems to be more effective. Vitamin E is also an antioxidant to aid in oxidative damage. Find vitamin E in:
Almonds, kale, spinach, wheat germ oil, and broccoli
• Vitamin C: Another antioxidant, and necessary for collagen production. Find it in:
Oranges, peppers, strawberries, and grapefruit
• Beta carotene: Important for skin texture, and sun protection. The best sources to find beta carotene, are in fruits and vegetables, especially those with a bright pigment. Some include:
Sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, and tomatoes
Of course dont forget vitamin A, a major antioxidant, which can help neutralize environmental damage caused by free radicals.
Free radicals basically cause damage to cells. Catechins, found in green tea have also become very popular throughout the last few years. Not only may it prevent some chronic diseases, but skin aging as well. This is specially true in black tea.
