What Should you Eat to get Younger Looking Skin

We all want to have our skin look healthy and younger. We can use topical lotions, serums, moisturizers, but what can we do to get our skin to give us a glow from the inside out? Here are some of our top tips to help your skin get the flawless look you want.

Eat Fruits and Vegetables with Every Meal

Fruits and vegetables are full of powerful antioxidants that will help protect the skin against any cell damage that causes wrinkles or adds fine lines. They will also help you get back your healthy skin tone from any skin damage. Smoking, pollution, and sunlight all cause wrinkles and dark/age spots on your skin that fruits and vegetables can help reverse.

Eat Vitamin – C

Vitamin-c is a super antioxidant and it also will help support your immune system and help any blemishes you may have heal properly. Vitamin-C also contains a lot of collagen that will strengthen and promote skin cell growth. The best foods to eat to make sure you are getting enough are blackberries, broccoli, kiwis, oranges, strawberries, and sweet potatoes.

Don’t Crash Diet

If you are losing weight then gaining weight and fluctuating back and forth, it will take a toll on your skin. Crash diets are normally lacking a lot of vitamins and minerals that your skin needs to look and feel it’s best. It’s always to eat a well-balanced diet to lose weight and maintain healthy skin.

Eat Foods With Selenium

Selenium is one of the most powerful antioxidants and it works right alongside vitamin-c and vitamin-e and it’s essential to your immune system. Selenium helps protects yourself against cancer, age spots, and any sun damage. Foods that contain a lot of selenium are eggs, shellfish, tomatoes, and broccoli.

Hydrate Your Skin

Water makes up over 50% of our body which is why it’s so important to keep your skin and body hydrated. Your skin relies on water to stay flexible, and if you aren’t drinking enough water then your skin will start to skin in from being dehydrated. To make sure you’re drinking your 8-10 cups a day bring a water bottle wherever you go and stay away from sugary soft drinks.
