Get that glowing look
With summer approaching here at Beauty in Prague, we want you to look your best and there are 7 foods, along with a healthy lifestyle and drinking water that can help you to achieve smooth, radiant skin.
Oats are low-glycemic which means foods that don’t spike your blood sugar like refined breads, rice, and pasta can. High-glycemic foods are known to cause acne and wrinkles. Oats also have a natural plant chemical that helps prevent damage to skin cells and soothes skin irritation.
These are loaded with water, so they hydrate your skin and your cells. One large orange is an excellent source of vitamin C, which helps make collagen and that helps keep your skin supple. In general, vegetables and fruits are great for your skin. Get at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day. Make sure that you have lots of different colours. The different colours mean different nutrients. Aim for your plate to be that of a rainbow.
Avocados are bursting with a healthy type of fat called monounsaturated fat, this helps your skin stay hydrated, some healthy fat can also help you absorb some vitamins and nutrients that your skin needs.
- Lean Beef
Lean beef, such as Top Sirloin or Fillet, are a great way to get high-quality protein. Protein helps to build collagen, but when you cook the Beef, make sure that you turn the meat often as any charcoal or charred/burnt parts will undo all of the anti-aging properties the Beef has. Aim for two to three servings of lean protein a week.
- Brussels Sprouts
We know that these are either loved or hated but Brussels Sprouts are an excellent source of the skin-friendly vitamins A and C, as well as folate. Their vitamin C promotes collagen. And while you still need to use sun protection, vitamin A and folate may help prevent sun damage.
Fish is one of the best ways to get healthy omega-3 fats in your diet. Recent studies have suggested that omega-3s, especially from fish, may keep skin cancer cells from growing and spreading. Aim for at least two servings of fish each week.
Resveratrol, which comes from the skin of grapes, red and green, stops inflammation, people think it slows the aging process, plus it may fight the effects of UV light and sun damage. Remember you still need to use your sun lotion, it is very important to where this to protect your skin.
Eat right and get the glow.
