Applying the right products, along with using DERMAFLASH regularly helps keep our skin healthy and young. However beauty tools and serums aren’t the only skin saviors. What you eat makes a huge impact on the way your epidermis looks and feels. You may never stop indulging in those carb cravings, but incorporating these 6 foods into your diet will nourish your body, and help leave your skin be smooth and supple.
1) Tomatoes – Tomatoes really have it all, this is why brands like Yes To have entire product lines based on the fruit. Tomatoes contain lycopene and selenium and are also a good source of protein, which aids in cellular repair. Selenium is an important antioxidant to know about as it works in conjunction with, and actually amps up the benefits of other vitamins. These nutrients work together to help treat major signs of skin wear like sun damage and age spots.
2) Salmon – Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, salmon does the skin a world of good. Adding this fish to your diet will slow the likelihood of fine lines, decrease clogged pores and reduce inflammation. Salmon also plays a role in preserving the firmness of your skin thanks to the high levels of DMAE within.
3) Ahhhh…Chocolate – Contrary to common belief, chocolate isn’t necessarily bad for your skin. Especially chocolate that is at least 70% cocoa. Dark chocolate contains flavonoids, a potent antioxidant. A few pieces a day can enhance your skin’s glow and believe it or not, even help hydrate and tighten. If you ask us, this is more enjoyable than going the topical cocoa butter route.
4) Brussels Sprouts – Spinach and kale are typically touted as THE go-to veggies for radiance, but Brussels sprouts are just as beneficial. These mighty sprouts are rich in alpha lipoid acid, one of the strongest anti-aging agents around. This super food fights the appearance of wrinkles and also eases redness and inflammation. Ingesting this cute little powerhouse will help even out skin tone too.
5) Grapefruit – The fruit, in season now, contains vitamin C and antioxidants that fight free radicals. Adding pink grapefruit to your diet aids hydrate and encourages the production of collagen. Eating grapefruit will help your skin glow from the inside out. There are also topical ways to apply grapefruit to fight premature signs of aging. Try Korres Grapefruit Instant Brightening Mask.
6) Avocado – Fat is not your skins enemy. Avocado is chock full of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids that lock moisture into the surface of your skin. Avocados are high in vitamin E and carotenoids; important antioxidants that can reduce the damage caused by sun exposure and strengthen the skin’s structure. Dewy skin always looks better on a nourished surface.
