Ageing is a natural aspect of life, but a healthy diet can help keep your skin radiant. We have a look at some of the anti-ageing foods you can introduce to your diet.
One of the most important foods for anti-ageing is avocado. They are rich in vitamins C, E, B, A, K and have tons of unsaturated fatty acids which are responsible for the production of the lipid layer on the skin.
Olive oil plays a huge role in removing and scavenging the free radicals in the human body, which can help reduce ageing. Olive oil is made up of monounsaturated fats and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, flax seeds are considered to be the fountain of youth. They can scavenge free radicals, and they’re also good for lowering cholesterol.
Blueberries and cranberries are great sources of vitamin E and vitamin C and also possess arbutin which is responsible for skin tightening and making the skin brightening, removing the dark spots and making the skin tone even. These berries also contain high amounts of antioxidants, which help improve the elasticity of the skin.
Fish, especially salmon, is very important for the skin. Salmon is a very rich source of antioxidants and monounsaturated fats. Salmon also contains astaxanthin, which is responsible for skin brightening, tightening, and firmness, and can help increase the production of collagen.
