Some of the best treatments for your healthy skin come directly from your refrigerator and not from a $100+ bottle promising to remove ten years from your face. The most natural and better healthy skin treatments require you to only do one thing: eat. Below are some of the best fruits and veggies you could consume to protect yourself from sun damage and to keep your healthy skin in the best shape possible!
Lemons : This sour treat is a firm supporter of your liver, which is key to having a blemish-free complexion. Lemons help with digestion by increasing bile secretion from the liver and strengthening its enzymes.
Cabbage : This veggie has 11 percent more vitamin C than oranges and vitamin C is a known fighter for ageing. It helps damaged tissues repair themselves while also minimizing deep lines.
Pears : Organic pears should definitely be added to your anti-ageing regimen (organic pears allow you to eat the skin without the pesticides). As one of my favourite fruits ever I am more than happy to hear that pears contain all the major nutrients needed to promote a healthy skin glow: zinc, potassium, iron, magnesium, copper, and vitamins C, E, B, and K.
Watercress : As a spicy green treat, watercress cleanses and oxygenates tissues creating a skin glow. When your body has a higher oxygen supply, your blood flow is better and your skin looks brighter. Because of this veggie’s combination of A, C, and E vitamins, it also aids in reducing and treating both acne and eczema.
Protection from the sun :
Cantaloupe : Cantaloupe one of my favourite fruits ever! Because of the amount of vitamin C in cantaloupe, it can actually protect the skin against sunburn and can also reduce inflammation.
Pomegranates : Pomegranates are also beneficial as they are the skin’s natural sun protection.
Tomatoes : Tomatoes are overflowing with the antioxidant lycopene and consuming cooked tomatoes may protect your skin from sunburn and helps with anti-ageing.
Kiwi, blueberries, and sweet potatoes : Kiwi, blueberries, and sweet potatoes are packed with vitamins C and E, which not only protect the skin from sun damage but also help with wrinkle prevention and dry skin.
