5 Good Foods To Eat For A Healthy Skin

The way we eat affects not only our health and metabolism, but also our skin. Some types of food can help preventing dryness and early skin aging.

1

Fatty Fish

Salmon, mackerel and herring are all examples of fatty fish. As they all contain omega-3 fatty acids, these kinds of fish are supposed to help the skin getting thicker, moisturized and elastic.

2

Avocado

Avocados are sources of healthy fat which helps preventing the skin from getting dry and less susceptible to wrinkles, beyond other benefits. But that is not all: avocados are also excellent against sun, one the biggest enemies of our skin.

3

Walnuts

Walnuts cointain fatty acids that the body cannot make itself. They are very rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids but with a good ratio of both: while a diet too high in omega-6 fats can promote inflammation, omega-3 fats help reducing this risk.

4

Sunflower Seeds

Seeds in general are excellent sources of skin-boosting nutrients; one ounce of sunflower seeds, specifically, contains 37% of the RDI for vitamin E, 10% of the RDI for zinc and 32% of the RDI for selenium.

5

Sweet Potatoes

Together with oranges, carrots and spinach, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene functions as provitamin A, which means it can be converted into vitamin A in the body.
