If you truly are what you eat, it’s time to trade in your macarons and sea salt caramels for healthy options, especially if you’re concerned about the state of your skin. After all, choosing certain superfoods can improve your complexion and even smooth the surface of your skin. If you’re ready to take a hard look at your diet, here are three wrinkle-busting foods that are good for your skin and can fight the appearance of lines and aging.
Like most berries, blueberries draw their deep color from a high concentration of anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that protect the skin. By scavenging the free radicals that destroy your skin’s connective tissue, antioxidants defend your skin and prevent further deepening of fine lines and wrinkles. Eating blueberries helps maintain the healthy structure of your skin for a youthful and elastic look (HealWithFood).
A health food that has veered up and down in popularity over the years, organic non-GMO soy like edamame (young soybeans) and tofu are still considered by many experts a good addition to a healthy diet (Time). Because edamame contains amino acids, the food is a powerhouse for building skin cells and stimulating collagen production. With its high amino acid content, edamame is one of the best foods for maintaining fresh-looking skin (Organic Authority).
Blueberry Soy Night Recovery Cream - An ultra-effective combination of blueberries and soy, this night cream reduces the visible signs of aging and revitalizes the texture of the skin.
Yogurt is riding high on the probiotic trend popular amongst wellness advocates and experts. One reason why is because probiotic bacteria regulate your skin’s pH balance and - according to Harper’s Bazaar - help with radiance. The bacteria also fight redness and irritation, leading to skin that looks healthy and youthful.
Enriched with yogurt, our Clear Skin Probiotic Masque is powered by effective doses of bacteria for the skin. The mask not only clears problem areas, it also leaves skin smoother and shrinks pores.
