If you’re looking for a natural way to boost your skin, you’ll find it in raw foods – according to the experts, there are five types of food that can be eaten to give you a clear, smooth complexion.
Nuts, specifically walnuts and pistachios are great for protecting your skin from cell damage – that’s due to their high vitamin B and E content. The former leaves you with glowing skin, while the latter destroys the free radicals that speed up the ageing process, leaving your skin visibly younger-looking.
- Almond milk
Continuing with the nut theme, almond milk is known for stimulating the production of collagen, while helping to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Why not drink it in place of cow’s milk to see the difference in your skin?
They say an apple a day keeps the Doctor away – the vitamin C found in apples helps to boost the production of collagen, visibly plumping your skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
- Berries and citrus fruit
Like apples, citrus fruits are crammed with vitamin C. Berries on the other hand, contain a large amount of antioxidants, which help to reduce the signs of ageing by ridding your body of harmful toxins.
- Kale and spinach
Last but not least, these two leafy green vegetables contain phytonutrients, helping to keep your skin smooth and firm and protect it from ultraviolet rays – no wonder your mum always told you to eat your greens.
