Healthy skin food: the best skin care food
People who seek perfect skin first benefit from a simple understanding of what the skin is and how it depends on nutrition, just like other parts of the body. The skin is the protector of all internal things, but it is also the largest organ in the body. Highly elastic, the skin needs antioxidants to be healthy, with effective function and enjoy repair at the cellular level. There is not much external skin care, including creams, serums and lotions, which can help create and maintain healthy skin and promote whole body health from within.
Top food for healthy skin
Foods that promote healthy skin include a variety of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, as well as small amounts of high-quality animal protein such as salmon and trout. Fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts rich in antioxidants are often characterized by bright red and yellow or rich dark colors. For example, blackberries have an incredible antioxidant capacity, as do dry roasted peanuts, almonds, pistachios, and walnuts.
Other foods include:
Green leafy vegetables
Citrus fruits rich in vitamin C, such as grapefruit
Not surprisingly, the more healthy foods listed above, the less junk you consume and the better your skin. Not only that, but each of these foods is healthy and will help improve overall health.
Improve skin health through diet and nutrition
Antioxidant-rich foods are essential for cell repair. When cells are destroyed by free radicals, the oxidation process begins to develop in the body. In our simplest understanding, this is equivalent to the aging process. When the body provides high quality fuel in the form of food and supplements, all organs, including the skin, will benefit.
