Eating right and eating healthy have always been a crucial part for any beauty regime. We all want to fight those horrid wrinkles, fine lines and dull skin. So to ensure you keep your youthfulness and beauty, here are some essentials you’ll need to keep in your diet for anti-aging.
Omega fatty acids: Omega fatty acids in some few healthy fats and oils are important because they help build the skin cell walls. If the skin cell walls are plump and healthy, your skin will look much more hydrated and dewy too. Foods rich in omega fatty acids are salmon, walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, coconut oil, olive oil and avocados.
Amino acids: Amino acids found in protein help rebuild and repair damaged collagen and elastin. Meat, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts, and seeds are all excellent sources.
Leafy green vegetables: Broccoli, kale, and spinach all help keep your skin healthy and hydrated because of how rich they are in antioxidants. Green smoothies are also an easy way to help absorb the nutrients more quickly.
Potassium: Many fruits and vegetables like potatoes, nuts, beans, meat, poultry and fish are potassium-rich and can offset the sodium. These help water retention and reduce the dark circles under your eyes.
Tea: Tea most especially green tea is high in polyphenols that help protect the skin from premature aging. It hydrates the skin and is an alternative to coffee, which can dehydrate your skin
