Eating your way to beautiful skin
Eating more vitamin C-rich foods, such as strawberries, may help to ward off wrinkles and age-related dryness.
Vitamin C’s skin-smoothing effects may be due to its ability to mop up free radicals produced from ultraviolet rays and also its role in collagen synthesis.
Collagen is fibrous protein that keeps skin firm and vitamin C is essential for collagen production.
Drinking a single cup of coffee daily may lower your risk of developing skin cancer.
In one study of more than 93,000 women, published in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention, those who drank one cup of caffeinated coffee a day reduced their risk of developing nonmelanoma skin cancer by about 10 percent.
And the more they drank—up to about 6 cups or so per day—the lower their risk. Decaf didn’t seem to offer the same protection.
Consuming more lycopene—the carotenoid that makes tomatoes red—may protect your skin from sunburn.
In one study, participants who were exposed to UV light had almost 50 percent less skin reddening after they ate 2 1/2 tablespoons of tomato paste or drank about 1 2/3 cups of carrot juice daily, in addition to their regular diet, for 10 to 12 weeks.
Supplements, however, weren’t as effective: in the same study, those who received a lycopene supplement or synthetic lycopene weren’t significantly protected against sunburn.
In a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, mice fed isoflavones and exposed to ultraviolet radiation had fewer wrinkles and smoother skin than mice that were exposed to UV light but didn’t get isoflavones.
The researchers believe that isoflavones help prevent collagen breakdown.
The omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA (docosahexaenoic and eicosapentaenoic acids, respectively) found in salmon may shield cell walls from free-radical damage caused by UV rays, according to a 2009 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Researchers followed the eating habits of more than 1,100 Australian adults for approximately five years and found that for those who ate a little more than 5 ounces of omega-3-rich fish—such as salmon—each week the development of precancerous skin lesions decreased by almost 30 percent.
Aim to eat two servings of fatty fish each week: not only are the omega-3s good for your skin, they’re good for your heart too.

Best Anti-Aging Skincare Routine: Super Foods to Keep Your Skin Wrinkle Free and Smooth
Most of us resist the idea of aging, particularly when it comes to lines and wrinkles on the face. The beauty industry makes billions a year with the sale of lotions and potions, tools and procedures – but true beauty comes from within.
A healthy body, nourished with the right foods, stays younger naturally without all the need for gimmicks like chemical laden creams and painful plastic procedures that either don’t work or don’t last.
If you want to achieve age-defying beauty naturally, without spending a fortune try these natural super foods.
Perhaps you’ve heard of using it topically for burns, especially in the summertime, however the inner gel of the aloe plant is loaded with nutrients.
It is a natural collagen booster that promotes a smoother, wrinkle-free complexion. Aloe’s nutrients include 18 essential amino acids, 20 minerals and a dozen vitamins.
Aloe vera works as a tonic for the digestive tract, aiding proper digestion and elimination. The proper processing of waste also helps keep skin clear and beautiful.
Fresh aloe gel or pure aloe vera juice works best. It has a mild, but slightly bitter flavor and is best mixed with a bit of fruit juice or blended into a smoothie.
Coconut oil is one of the most amazing, multipurpose super foods. It’s truly versatile because it can be eaten or used as a supplement and also topically as a natural hair conditioner and skin moisturizer.
Coconut oil’s primary nutrient is lauric acid, an anti-microbial essential fatty acid that kills viruses and bacteria. Not all coconut oils are the same! You should use only organic, extra virgin coconut oil for full benefits.
Coconut oil that has been processed loses it’s essential fatty acids and becomes a trans-fat which is harmful to the body. Learn all about the amazing health benefits of coconut oil and how to use it in this hub: Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Uses and Health Benefits.
You can find coconut oil in many wholesale club stores at a good price. My favorite brand and most reasonably priced and highest quality is the Nature’s Way which I’ve only found online.
This coconut oil has an amazing, silky texture to it. It tastes wonderful and I even use it as a natural moisturizer and hair conditioner. A lot of bang for not too many bucks!
There’s nothing like a fresh made batch of guacamole. The creamy, yummy goodness of avocado isn’t just a healthy snack, it’s a powerful super food.
Avocado oil can be purchased and used in foods as well, or applied directly to the skin and hair like coconut oil.
You can also take half of a fresh avocado and puree it with a bit of coconut oil for an intense moisturizing and rejuvenating mask for the face.
Avocado is loaded with healthy fats, antioxidants, and vitamin E and the antioxidant you may not have heard of – glutathione.
A lesser known fact about Avocado is that it contains a powerful antioxidant called Glutathiaone that helps the liver process toxins more effectively, leading naturally to clearer skin.
Glutathiaone also has anti-carcinogenic properties that make it a great food for cancer prevention – bonus!
Raw Local Honey and Bee Pollen
Local honey is amazing for fighting pollen allergies that often lead to red, watery eyes and inflammation. Honey is also a rich source of flavonoids and antioxidants that work as antibacterial agents.
It can be used as an acne remedy and it also helps moisturize dry skin. Honey is a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture and locks it in, building moisture levels in the skin.
Eat a bit of raw, natural honey each day and use it as a natural scrub mixed with some salt or sugar to gently exfoliate and soothe the skin.
Its high concentration of RNA (ribonucleic acid) and DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) combined with it’s antimicrobial properties make it great for skin cell restoration and for fighting dehydration of the cells. Bee pollen is one of the most nutrient dense food items there is. It is a rich source of B-complex vitamins, folic acid, amino acids and protein.
Goji berries are one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world. Goji berries originated in Tibet and have been used in traditional medicine for centuries.
These reddish orange berries are typically sold dried in health food stores. A very small amount has a truly staggering amount of nutrients including high concentrations of vitamins and minerals, amino acids (the building blocks of the body), phytochemicals, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants.
The health benefits associated with these berries are numerous. They boost immunity, help prevent cancer, lower cholesterol, relieve depression and enhance vision.
Goji berry’s nutrients support the production of human growth hormone, the body’s natural anti-aging hormone that declines over the years. Best Anti-Aging Skincare Routine: Super Foods, I hope you enjoyed reading this article.
