Below is a list of superfoods that are great for keeping your skin in good shape.
BLUEBERRIES - rich in antioxidants to protect you from anti-aging.
WILD SALMON - Not farm raised, is one of the best sources of omega 3 which keeps skin supple and moisturised . It also contains Vit D which keeps your bones and teeth healthy too.
It seems to be almost impossible to find salmon these days that isn't farmed. Since wild salmon is very hard to find, the best salmon I have found is the NZ salmon which is at least raised in rivers mainly in the Sth Island and they do not use antibiotics or chemicals.
TOMATOES - are the best source of lycopene which is an anti-aging oxidant. It is most easily absorbed when cooked.
KIWIFRUIT - This fruit is loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants, which keep skin firm , help prevent wrinkles, and are great for healthy bones and teeth.
KALE- this one is the queen of greens. It contains potassium, iron, copper, phosphorus, manganese, and antioxidants Vit A, C, and K. It is also rich in lutein which is great for the eyes.
Can't get enough of this vegetable I love it.
CHOCOLATE - Before you reach for the Cadburys bar you better read on... it is dark chocolate and it has to be at least 60% cacao. Dark chocolate helps your skin to stay hydrated and protects from sun damage. And contrary to popular belief does not give you pimples.
SWEET POTATOES - These are packed with beta-carotene, an antioxidant that fights aging.
WALNUTS - Whilst these are not a personal favourite of mine I was surprised to see that they do give you smoother skin, healthy hair , brighter eyes and strong bones. They also contain omega 3 fatty acids and Vit E. Might have to get over my dislike.
