Green Tea is an Antioxidant That Cleanses Your Skin:
The Chinese got it right centuries ago. Green tea is an antioxidant that boosts the immune system and flushes out waste. A clean and healthy immune system reflects on your face.
Clean insides = clear skin = younger looking you.
Fruits protect repair damage skin cells:
Tomatoes and watermelon are rich in beta-carotene and lycopene, vitamins that help protect your skin from the sun, inside and out. Their antioxidant abilities repair damage to the skin cells that the sun might have caused. Why juice them separately, when you can have both to double the effects! Add some strawberries to the mix and you’ve got yourself the perfect anti-ageing elixir! Strawberries and berries in general are packed to the brim with antioxidants.
Sweet Potatoes help to get rid of fine lines:
Nuts help in reversing skin damage
It’s time you go nuts about almonds and walnuts. Reverse the damage to your skin caused by free radicals with a dose of vitamin E by making a yummy snack out of almonds. Feed your skin and brain while you’re at it with some walnuts, that also help curb inflammation.
Greens help in building skin’s elasticity
Your body needs special antioxidant compounds to help guard it against the sun. Spinach is loaded with nutrients like beta-carotene and lutein, which are known to help the skin’s elasticity, meaning younger looking and beautiful skin. Other green vegetables like unwaxed cucumbers contain silica in the peel, which are known to help reduce wrinkles and boost collagen. Don’t forget to load up on magnesium and vitamin C rich broccoli, which is a great immunity booster!
Avocado improves blood circulation:
Nourish dry skin so that it never ages faster than it should with heart healthy omega-3 rich fats like olive oil. Consume a tablespoon a day to improve circulation and achieve rosy and supple skin. Avocados, also known as butter fruit, are one of the richest sources of monounsaturated fats and contain biotin for healthy skin.
Dark Chocolate improves your skin quality
Treat your taste buds and your skin at the same time with a chocolate indulgence that can improve your skin for years to come. Packed with vitamin B and full of proteins, the darker the chocolate the better, because 70% of cocoa (in small doses) does your ageing skin more good than harm.
Start now to turn back the clocks, and in a matter of weeks, maybe even days, you’ll start noticing visible changes and, over time, the signs of ageing will reduce dramatically. But like anything you do in life, to ensure things go smoothly, moderation is the key. Quick then, redo your grocery list to include all these superfoods!
