One of the most profoundly effective ways to create the most attractive glow for your skin is by consuming vegetables and fruits that are high in carotenoids.
- Nuts– The benefits of nuts –especially almonds and walnuts–have to do with antioxidant activity. Vitamin E fights skin-aging free radicals and also helps your skin hold in moisture.
- Red and Green Vegetables– Orange-red vegetables are full of beta-carotene. Your body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A, which prevents cell damage and premature aging.
- Citrus Fruits-Vitamin C aids in your body’s production of collagen, which is the protein that forms the basic structure of your skin. Collagen breakdown can leave your skin saggy, and vitamin C will help tighten it back up.
Juicing for health and vibrancy
A simple way to ensure you’re getting enough fresh vegetables in your diet is to juice them. People who juice daily look 30 to 40 years younger and with virtually no facial wrinkles.
Foods to avoid for a healthy complexion
The most effective way to do this is by reducing processed sugars and grains as well as fructose from your diet. Soda, Drugs, and alcohol are clearly enemies of a glowing complexion, but processed foods, trans fats, processed table salt, and pasteurized dairy products are also common culprits.
