Healthy Food List

TOMATOES
They contain lycopene, which is a good free radical scavenger for UV caused skin damage.

MANGO/PAPAYA/APRICOT
They contain a high concentration of carotenoids which deposit in the subcutaneous fat of the skin
and enhance the glow of your skin.

COCOA POWDER
This contains flavonals, the same antioxidant as in dark chocolate, which can decrease the roughness of your
skin and also provides protection against damaging UV rays of the sun.

FLAXSEED
Contains omega-3 fatty acids which decrease skin redness, irritation, and decreases fine lines and brown spots.

SWEET POTATOES
Contains vitamin-C which stimulates collagen production and consequently makes your skin smoother.

MUSCLES
They contain iron. Diets poor in iron can leave your skin looking pasty and pale.

SPINACH
Has a large amount of folate which helps maintain and repair DNA which is crucial in preventing skin cancer development.

CANNED TUNA
The key ingredient for the skin is selenium. This helps preserve elastin which keeps skin smooth and tight.
It also fights free radical from sun damage and other sources. Beware the mercury content of some canned tuna.

SAFFLOWER OIL
This contains omega-6 fatty acids which is helpful for dry, itchy, flakey skin. It acts like a skin moisturizer by improving cell wall
integrity and function.

Incorporate some of these foods into your diet and you may see a significant improvement in the condition and appearance of your skin.  Remember to always apply a broad spectrum sunscreen, if you are going to be in the sun. Stay hydrated, use good cleansers, conditioners, and stimulators and your skin will look fantastic.
