Add these foods into your diet for flawless skin

  1. Papaya: Chock full of antioxidants, it helps combat aging and wrinkles.
  2. Blueberries: These little blue pills pack antioxidants and phytochemicals to neutralize DNA-damaging free radicals, reduce cell damage and protect skin cells from damage and disintegration, making the skin look younger for longer.
  3. Salmon: This is full of healthy fatty omega acids, which are anti-inflammatory and make skin look vibrant, supple and youthful.  Essential fatty acids such as omega-3s help keep cell membranes healthy by keeping out harmful substances as well as allowing nutrients to enter cells and exit with waste products.
  4. Dark chocolate: In its raw, pure form, dark chocolate is called cacao, which has high antioxidants. Look for 70% or higher cacao (not milk chocolate). Dark chocolate’s antioxidant chemicals, known as flavonoids, can prevent both cell damage and inflammation, and protect and increase blood flow to the skin, improving its structure and appearance. Aim for one ounce of dark chocolate a day.
  5. Kale: This leafy green encourages skin firming and contains vital phytonutrients, also referred to as antioxidant compounds, that help guard against damage from the sun. Kale is loaded with beta-carotene and lutein, two important nutrients to improve skin elasticity and firmness.
  1.  Coconut Oil:  As a moisturizer for body skin and hair as well as used to cook foods or even eat right off the spoon.  Coconut oil is loaded with antioxidants and is a healthy fat to help your blood circulation and arteries.  It even helps alleviate sugar cravings when eaten before a meal.  Recommended amount is 2 tsp. before each meal, then watch how much other fat you eat throughout the day since you are getting a healthy dose with this.
