10 Skin-Perfecting Super Foods

Friday, 7 February 2014 09:53:56 Europe/London

1. Eggs: It may not be Easter yet, but crack open some eggs. Protein helps repair cells that have suffered free radical damage. Eggs, a complete source of protein, also contain biotin, an essential vitamin that protects against dry skin.


2. Oysters: a good source of zinc, which helps skin renewal and repair. Who needs an aphrodisiac when you look and feel beautiful?


3. Salmon: Fish eaters unite! One of the best sources of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep skin supple, moisturised and calm is salmon. Salmon also contains selenium, which helps protect skin from sun exposure. Other omega-3-rich fish are mackerel, trout, herrings and sardines.


4. Spinach and other dark green leaves: rich in vitamins B, C and E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and omega-3 fats. Add a side salad to your lunch or dinner.


5. Tomatoes: best eaten cooked, tomatoes contain the anti-ageing antioxidant lycopene – other good sources of lycopene include papaya, watermelon and pink grapefruit.


6. Kiwi fruit: loaded with collagen-supporting vitamin C and other antioxidants to keep skin firm and help prevent wrinkles.


7. Walnuts: rich in magnesium, vitamin B6, iron and calcium, walnuts are also a good source of omega-3 fats.


8. Oats: known to improve your skin, eating oats helps relax your mind (which irons out a few wrinkles!) and gives you energy.


9. Watercress: full of vitamins A and C, watercress is also a natural antibiotic that helps to heal blemishes.


10. Sweet potato: this nutritious vegetable is packed with antioxidants, including vitamin A, as well as minerals and fibre (a healthy digestive system really shows in your skin).
