Smile if you knew antioxidants were good for your skin. The original report was published by researchers at Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University.
Eating anti-oxidants are not only healthy for your body but ideal for keeping your skin hydrated and glowing during spring. Check out some ideas & benefits below.
Berries are perhaps one of the most anti-oxidant rich foods in the world. It is a great idea to incorporate a berry smoothie in your breakfast. Buy a box of organic frozen berries so you can blend them with milk, yogurt or protein powder whenever you want.
Pomegranate is rich in vitamin C, B5, polyphenols (antioxidant) and potassium. In fact, pomegranate has higher levels of antioxidant than both green tea and wild blueberries.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Antioxidants are present in the skin five times more than in the flesh of the apple. Therefore, eat them whole without peeling the skin off.
Taking good care of your skin especially during spring time is prudent and while following a good skin care routine can do wonders for your skin, it is equally important to eat the right kind of food to nourish and replenish your skin naturally.
