Your skin, like the rest of your body relies on a healthy diet to stay looking and feeling great. You know you shouldn’t be eating a ton of McDonald’s or chugging the Coke all day long, but you have to replace those junky choices with the right ones if you want to do your skin any good. That means, no Doritos or Gatorade either. You can have a splurge now and then, but for the most part, you need to make lifelong healthy choices that will support great skin now and as you age. Here’s how you should be eating.
1. Eat Lots of Fruits and Vegetables Because They Have Tons of Antioxidants
Antioxidants fight free radical damage, which helps prevent all sorts of issues, including skin cancer and the signs of aging. Fruits and vegetables contain a whole ton of antioxidants, giving you just one more reason to add them to your meal plan. Any fruit or vegetable will do, but the deep, dark colored ones generally contain more. Try blueberries, cantaloupe and cherries. Yum!
