Fruits

Doctors agree that it’s still best to get your daily dose of vitamin C from food, and fruits are the best sources for it. As an essential component for collagen production, vitamin C can help keep your skin smooth and supple while neutralizing any free radicals created by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Enjoy a serving of your favorite fruit, or blitz several kinds in a blender to create a refreshing smoothie.

Carrots

Aside from keeping your eyesight sharp, the vitamin A content in carrots prevents the outermost layer of your skin from overproducing cells. Overproduction can cause pores to clog and lead to a breakout. Studies also show that vitamin A may reduce your risk for skin cancer, so munch on carrot sticks for some healthy snacking.

Fish

Good news for sushi lovers: the omega-3 and omega-6 in your favorite protein are good for reducing inflammation, including the type you experience during a breakout. Salmon and mackerel have some of the highest omega oils content, while tuna is also rich in selenium for preserving the elasticity of your skin.

Tofu

Save your skin from wrinkles and sagging by eating tofu! The soy product contains isaflavones, which help prevent the breakdown of collagen due to sun exposure. Enjoy in this cheap thrill the next time a magtataho comes by.

Water
While there are a growing number of beauty drinks in the market, water is still the best thirst-quencher for your skin. It keeps you hydrated, flushes out harmful toxins, and contains no fat or sugar. You don’t necessarily have to drink 8 glasses daily because the ideal amount varies for each person, but make sure to have some with every meal and whenever you feel the urge to eat.

 

These foods are best taken daily to get their full benefits, but you can also add another way to nourish your skin. Heliocare Purewhite Radiance is a food supplement with anti-aging and skin clarifying effects. Its White Tech Complex is formulated from natural compounds that keep your skin bright, healthy and young. Heliocare’s patented Fernblock technology also enables it to act as an oral sunscreen, so you can maintain that radiant glow without fear of sun burns or hyperpigmentation.
