According to MayoClinic,Some foods are full of nutrients that promote healthy skin and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and free radicals. There is no need to become focused on a specific "superfood" or unusual ingredient. Regular grocery stores offer lots of choices. Your overall eating pattern is what matters. To summarize, the majority of people should increase their intake of fruits and vegetables, reduce their intake of salt and sugar, and favor whole foods over processed ones. According to WebMD, here are some foods for healthy and supple skin.
1. Collards, spinach, and kale
Any type of dark leafy green is a nutrient powerhouse. They provide a nearly complete alphabet of vitamins, many of which are skin-friendly antioxidants. According to some studies, those who consume two to three servings of dark leafy greens each week have a lower risk of skin cancer.
If you have dry skin or want to give it a healthy glow, drinking water is a simple solution. There is no set recommendation for how much to drink; however, you may have heard that you need 8 cups daily. Cucumbers, celery, and watermelon all contain a lot of water.
These vegetables are high in beta-carotene, which protects your skin from the sun's harmful rays and make an excellent snack. Plants get their orange color from beta-carotene, which is also found in apricots, cantaloupe, mango, papaya, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes. Carrots are also high in magnesium, which helps to relax nerves and muscles. Not getting enough magnesium can lead to poor sleep, and getting enough shut-eye is always beneficial to your skin.
Almonds, peanuts, and hazelnuts are just a few of the vitamin E-rich foods that can help slow down some of the signs of skin aging. In order to support the skin, collagen must not be broken down, which is something that vitamin E helps to prevent. Another strong antioxidant that works to prevent cell damage brought on by free radicals is vitamin E.
5. Green tea.
Try substituting a cup of coffee for a cup of green tea for smoother skin. Polyphenols, a class of antioxidants found in tea leaves, are abundant in green tea. According to some research, polyphenols in green tea can help reduce the amount of sebum (oil) your body produces, which may make it a good option for treating acne.
