Nutrients for Healthy Skin
What are the best foods for your skin and the best ways to get the vitamins and other nutrients your skin needs?
Choose Foods That Are High in Antioxidants and Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Eating a healthy diet loaded with fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants is good for your whole body, including your skin.
Antioxidants such as vitamins C, E, and A and beta-carotene can help reduce the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. These molecules can injure skin cells and cause signs of aging.
One of the best ways to increase your antioxidant intake, say dermatologists, is to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.
