6 Foods for Better Skin

     

  • 1.

    Eggs, Legumes, Avocados, Nuts, Soybeans

    All contain biotin, an essential vitamin for fat and carb metabolism. A deficiency can lead to dry skin and brittle hair and nails.

  • 2.

    Salmon

    It contains astaxanthin, a carotenoid that improves skin elasticity, so you’ll have fewer fine lines.

  • 3.

    Omega-3s

    (from walnuts, DHA-fortified foods, even lemon-flavored cod-liver oil) Omega-3s seem to put shine in your hair and help skin look and feel young.

  • 4.

    Green Tea

    Its free oxygen radical scavengers protect against sun damage.

  • 5.

    Pomegranates

    When applied topically, they help skin make more collagen and speed healing.



  • 6.

    Tomatoes

    Study participants who ate tomato paste with olive oil daily for ten weeks reduced their risk of sunburn.
