Foods For Healthy Skin: What Vitamins and Minerals are Good
For Your Skin?

potatoes and fortified breakfast cereals.

You also need to eat foods rich in antioxidants, such as blueberries, blackberries,
strawberries, and plums. The benefits of these fruits for healthy skin are considerable.
The antioxidants found in these fruits can protect the skin cells. As a result, there is
less chance for damage.

This in turn protects against early aging and skin looks younger. Other fruits and
vegetables that are rich in antioxidants include artichokes, black, red, and pinto beans,
pecans and prunes.

Essential fatty acids are vital to your skin. You should include salmon, walnuts, canola
oil, and flax seed. Essential fatty acids keep cell membranes healthy, and allow
nutrients to pass through.

We also need healthy oils. Eating good-quality oils helps keep skin lubricated and
keeps it healthier overall. Try to find oils that are cold pressed, such as olive or extra
virgin oil. Our bodies only need approximately 2 tablespoons a day of healthy oils.

Selenium plays a crucial role in the health of skin cells. Eat foods like whole-wheat
bread, cereals, muffins, turkey, tuna and brazil nuts. Latest studies discovered that if
selenium levels are high, even skin damaged by the sun will only suffer negligible harm.

Processed and refined sugars can instigate inflammation that may eventually lead to
skin break outs. Green tea has anti-inflammatory properties, and it protects the
membrane of the cell. Green tea also plays an important role in the prevention of skin
cancer.

Water has an enormous effect on the health of your skin. Healthy and young-looking
skin is also a well-hydrated skin.
