Eat Right, Look Great

By incorporating these foods into your diet, you will begin to notice smoother skin...  


Blueberries 
Full of antioxidants. The antioxidants and phytochemicals found in blueberries help to neutralize free radicals, which might otherwise damage skin cells, leaving your skin with a younger and softer look and feel. They help fight the signs of aging skin. Rich in vitamin C. The vitamin C in blueberries can help to strengthen the blood vessels just below the surface of your skin.


Avocado
Avocados are packed with high amounts of fibre, plant sterols, magnesium, folate, protein, potassium, vitamins B6, E and K. Avocadoes also possess biotin, which help to prevent dry skin and brittle hair and nails. Unlike other fruits, it contains Omega-9 fats that repair damaged skin by reducing redness and irritation. Though it is true that avocados are high in fat, it is worth noting that they contain monounsaturated fats – the good fat which lowers blood cholesterol levels – that account for a major portion of avocado fats. Avocado is also a rich source of phytosterols such as beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol and they are key supporters of our inflammatory system that help keep inflammation under control. 


Spinach
Dark leafy greens like spinach are chock full of iron and folate, which protect the skin and keep it hydrated. Add a squeeze of vitamin C-rich lemon to your spinach, which will help the body absorb iron better. Spinach also contains a good amount of water, which will help keep skin hydrated.
The vitamin E in spinach is responsible for slowing down the ageing process while the beta-carotene is responsible for giving your body that natural tan and glow that you want all year round.


Carrots
Another great source of beta-carotene is the vitamin A-rich carrot; filled with agents of collagen - a type of protein, which promotes skin elasticity.
Beta-carotene is an antioxidant which will help fight dry skin and converts to vitamin A in the body, which aids in body tissue repairs

 
Olive oil
Packed with vitamin E and healthy fats, olive oil can help prevent the symptoms of aging and drying skin.


Green tea
Green tea is filled with inflammation-fighting antioxidants. Contains antioxidants called polyphenols, which fight free radicals and help cleanse your system. Giving you more radiant skin. When you add a generous squeeze of citrus juice, the tea’s antioxidants get a boost of staying power, so they remain in the body and benefit you longer.

The truth is many of us aren’t eating enough calcium rich foods.

We all know calcium is important for your bones, and plays a role in calming the nervous system. What role does it play in the health of your skin?
Calcium is the most common mineral in the human body and in regards to skin. A deficiency can display itself in itching, dryness, premature wrinkling, and an increased tendency to develop skin cancers. Also, when there is a calcium deficiency, your body will take calcium from your bones and teeth because it is needed in other body processes.
Calcium is important in the function of cell turnover and regulation of the protective lipid barrier. So, skin that can shed and renew itself and maintain an appropriate lipid level is another of the calcium skin benefits. Anyone suffering from dry, itchy skin should consider increasing calcium during cold, dry winter months to benefit from the protective barrier calcium can produce in the upper epidermal tissues.
Although calcium is not an antioxidant by itself, it is important in regulating the prod…
