Summer has arrived more intense than ever, and you will be exposed to ultraviolet rays, which cause photo aging and skin cancer.
Last week, we explained the importance of exfoliating, nourishing and moisturizing the skin, before and after sun exposure. Today we want to motivate you to make significant changes in your beauty routines from the inside out, making wise choices in your diet, since that daily diet plays an important role in healthy skin care. So we recommend this list of foods rich in antioxidants that provide a regenerative diet and therefore healthy skin:
1.- Water: More than 70% of our body is made up of water and must be continuously replenished. When we are dehydrated our physical performance decreases, the skin and hair look dry and it can cause headaches and fatigue. The amount of water to consume varies depending on age and sex. Women 2 liters, men 2.5.
2.- Vegetables: They are rich in antioxidants, help collagen production and keep the skin healthy and flexible and protect from UVA rays and repair tissues.
3.- Tropical Fruits: They have more vitamin C and antioxidants than other fruits. Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen, which helps keep the skin firm and elastic.
4- Nuts: Rich in vitamin E, they nourish the skin and protect from the Sun.
5- Fish: They contain high levels of omega-3 fats, which allow greater membrane permeability and, consequently, better cell function. These nutrients, due to their anti-inflammatory nature, can also help relieve inflammation in the skin.
6- Whole grains. Another essential antioxidant for the skin is selenium, a mineral found in whole grains that helps protect the skin against environmental damage, promotes its elasticity and overall health.
A rich and balanced diet is necessary to nourish your skin. Combine it with the use of natural personal care products, so choose your products wisely.
Improve your food and beauty routines and you will see the change in your skin.
