Here we have for you 5 super foods you can start eating today to make your skin healthier and glowing!

Tomatoes

Eating any tomato foods just like tomato juice and or sauce can actually help clearing out acne. This is because the lycopene lowers the hormones that promote acne. Lycopene also defends skin from UV rays and can help improve the antioxidants level of the skin. Antioxidants are the ones responsible for fighting radicals from excessive sun exposure. Although there are no definite suggestions as to how much and how often you should eat tomato-based foods, others suggest including it in the diet between 3 – 5 times in a weekly basis.

Drinking Green Tea

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is an acne producing hormone, which Green tea can help lower its ability. So basically, taking green tea can help you clear that acne. It is suggested to take 3-5 cups every day to get the complete benefits of green tea for your skin. Green tea is also stuffed with antioxidants which make your skin look healthier and younger.

Seafood

Seafood is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which lessen the wrinkling of the skin. The development of wrinkles is actually from an inflammation. Inflammatory chemicals are quite like an acid rain on your skin’s collagen and Omega-3 helps reduce the production of these bad chemicals. Just like lycopene and green tea, Omega-3 has an acne-clearing factor. Plus, it also has mood-regulating gains. But if you are a type of person who doesn’t eat seafood that much then you may take fish oil supplements.

Brown Rice

If you try to check out the nutritional facts of your skin products, you are likely to see Ceramides in the list. Ceramides are lipid molecules that help your skin sustain its moisture and these Ceramides can be found in Brown rice too. When you eat Ceramides, they actually get assimilated in the outer layer of your skin and help out in maintaining its moisture.
