Pssst…want to know the secret to younger-looking, healthy skin? Don’t skimp on the nutrients it needs!
Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables is not only good for your body, but it’s good for your skin health too! These essential foods are packed with vitamins and minerals that fight off wrinkles and keep skin supple, smooth, and spectacular! Lucky for us we have our pick of fresh, local foods right at our fingertips at the farmer’s markets found all around Fort Lauderdale. Before you go, though, make a shopping list with these tips in mind:
Combat wrinkles with the age-defying anti-oxidants found naturally in veggies and fruit. Fill your plate with a colorful array of blueberries, spinach, strawberries, kale, grapefruit, and your favorite peppers.
It’s easy to get the vitamins your skin needs, as well. Just grab some carrots and broccoli for a hefty dose of Vitamin A, a natural enemy of wrinkles. Grapes, cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts are great sources of Vitamin C, which is vital to your body’s ability to produce skin-tightening collagen. The Vitamin B found in beans and salmon, and the Vitamin E in almonds, spinach, and sunflower seeds, are excellent for your skin health too.
There are also important minerals you don’t want to ignore. Pick up some lentils or asparagus to get your fill of Folate; Choose peanuts or fish for much needed Niacin; and enjoy tuna, whole grains, and Brazil nuts for the Selenium your skin craves.
One last tip—Omega-3 fatty acids keep your outer skin strong against external pollutants and toxins, so add some fortified eggs, walnuts, sardines and salmon to your list!
