It has always been said that ‘you are what you eat’, but did you know that your skin also reflects everything you have been consuming? Well, you do now. Foods provide your body with nutrients, and these nutrients actually play a heroic part in making your skin healthy.

We are talking about the 5 best anti-aging and anti-oxidant foods for you to have healthy skin so grab some snacks (definitely not the unhealthy ones) and start reading ahead.

1. Tomato your life out

Tomatoes are the fruit-hub of Vitamin C, and also contain lycopene. Lycopene has been shown to protect your skin from sunlight and also prevents wrinkling.

Moreover, tomatoes make the skin healthy if eaten or even if rubbed on the skin. Therefore, fill your life with red and stock your fridge with tomatoes right away.

2. You don’t need a best friend, just get some Watermelon

This yummy water-filled goodness is nearly 92% water; therefore it keeps your skin hydrated. Moreover, it has lycopene and eating this often can help your skin from aging and stubborn wrinkles.

Stop raving that Korean skin, because yours will be radiant and healthy just like theirs by eating watermelon. So thank us a ‘melon’ and buy this fruit as soon as you set your eyes to it.

3. The only tea that you should be drinking is Green Tea

Milk tea might light up your taste buds but it isn’t good for your skin or teeth. So, what is the perfect replacement? Green Tea, of course!

This tea protects your skin from aging and damage. There are healthy compounds in green tea called catechins that work to improve the condition of your skin. And yes, it also protects your skin against sun damage.

(Note: Do not add milk to your green tea, as it can reduce the impact of green tea’s antioxidants)

4. Your friendly neighbor Bro-ccoli

This vegetable is filled to the brim with vitamins and minerals that are important for healthy skin. Some of them include zinc, Vitamin A and Vitamin C.

It also contains a carotenoid, lutein, which helps to protect your skin from damage and therefore stop it from becoming dry or wrinkled.  So start adding this meaty vegetable to your meals and get that skin everyone raves about.

5. Pomegranate all of it down

Don’t take this fruit for pome-granted because it not only tastes delicious but it also has Vitamin C and other antioxidants that help to fight free radicals and give you a healthy/radiant skin.

To End It

Even the peel of this fruit is beneficial, as when boiled with water it helps to soothe the throat, lowers cholesterol and stress levels and makes the person healthy. The list of benefits it offers doesn’t end so get this fruit in your life today! Food impacts your life and your skin. Whatever you eat in private, you wear that on your skin in public. So, make it worthwhile. Strike a pose and take a filterless selfie after eating these foods and let it reflect on your face. Be safe, healthy and have that Vogue skin!
