Refresh Your Skin

It may sound unusual, but not only does your body need diet, but your skin needs it sometimes, too. This literarily means that sometimes you have to eat certain types of food in order to make your skin look better. Perfect, silky skin means a lot to the majority of women, so let’s have a look at foods you should eat while you’re on a “skin diet”.

• Carrots

Carrots are known for their numerous benefits. For example, most people know that carrots are good for eyes, but only a few of them know that carrot can also be very beneficial for skin. Vitamin A, which can be found in carrots, helps prevent the overproduction of cells in the skin’s outer layer (that’s where dead cells and sebum combine and clog pores). Vitamin A also reduces the development of skin-cancer cells.

• Flax seeds

These seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids which erase spots and iron out fine lines. With only two grams (half a teaspoon) per day you can expect visible results in six weeks – less irritation and redness will be very noticeable. Also, skin will be better hydrated. The fats are believed to stifle body’s response to irritation and attract water to skin cells to plump up the skin and reduce wrinkles.

• Green tea

There’s almost nothing green tea can’t do. This magical plant is also very useful when it comes to skin care. Drinking green tea prevents skin cancer, but its antioxidants and their proven anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties are released while the tea is hot. The antioxidants in green tea start to degrade as the tea cools, so it’s recommended to drink it while it’s still hot.
