Eating foods high in vitamin C is associated with healthier, moisture skin with fewer wrinkles. One delicious kiwifruit provides more than 60 milligrams of this skin-friendly nutrient.
2. Grapeseed Oil
Grapeseed oil is high in linoleic acid, a healthy polyunsaturated fat. Research suggests that linoleic acid helps protect against the wrinkling and thinning of the skin that occurs with age.
Flavonoids are antioxidants found in many fruits and vegetables and red wine, tea, and cocoa. In one study, consuming hot cocoa was found to protect skin from sun damage, increase blood flow to the skin, and decrease skin roughness.
Almonds are a good source of vitamin E, flavonoids, and linoleic acid. These substances help keep your skin healthy and protect it against the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays.
This favorite summertime treat offers more than juicy sweetness. Watermelon carries a rich supply of lycopene, a carotenoid compound with antioxidant properties. Lycopene may make skin smoother and help protect it from sun damage. Another tasty source of lycopene: is tomatoes.
Soy contains antioxidants called isoflavones. Some research shows that isoflavones can improve skin thickness, collagen content, and elasticity.
7. Dark Green Leafy Vegetables
Spinach, chard, kale, and other dark leafy greens are rich in lutein, an antioxidant linked to healthier skin. In a study in Italy, eating three servings of dark green leafy vegetables a week was associated with lower rates of melanoma, a type of skin cancer. Check first with your doctor if you are taking any blood-thinner medications, as dark green leafy vegetables can adversely interact with these drugs.
Carrots boost beta-carotene, which protects the skin against damage from sun exposure. Other good sources of beta-carotene are sweet potatoes, mangos, papayas, spinach, and kale.
Green and black teas contain catechins and epicatechins, which are types of flavanols that are potent antioxidants. Studies show that tea drinking may help keep the skin more elastic and protect against skin cancer.
Add these wonderful foods to your diet. Make an appointment for services at Fountain of Youth, and be the best you this summer.
