“You are what you eat.” – You’ve probably heard or read that somewhere. It is a rather famous statement that has been present in our society mainly in the last three decades. With every year that passes, food and its quality become more and more important. As big as the increase of fast food and “fatty” foods is, so strong is the simultaneously growing trend towards conscious nutrition. People are becoming more and more aware of this topic and are becoming more and more aware of the food they consume. “Clean Eating” (in English: clean nutrition) leads to a healthier body. This is something we all know by now. But does the food we eat influence our beauty? If we all agree that one of the most important components of our beauty is beautiful skin, then the answer to this question is definitely: yes!
Which foods are good for our skin?
The best foods for your skin are those that are rich in phytonutrients. Eating large amounts of fresh food and drinking plenty of water provides your body with sufficient energy and natural, plant-based nutrients. Such nutrients help the body to produce collagen and elastin, resulting in healthier and more radiant skin.
Let us remember some of them:
It contains natural phytochemicals, vitamins and antioxidants. Antioxidants are known to slow down the aging process. At the same time, wheatgrass helps your body detoxify, making it a perfect ally for youthful, radiant skin.
Brown Algae Extract
Research shows that brown algae polyphenols, due to their strong antioxidant properties, have an anti-photocarcinogenic effect that can be linked to the prevention of UVB-induced oxidative stress, inflammation and cell proliferation in the skin. (American Association for Cancer Research)
Green Tea Extract
This helps to minimize signs of aging like wrinkles and lines. It is also known to relieve redness and repair skin damage. Consumption of green tea extract helps to moisturize the skin, stimulates blood circulation and protects against UV radiation.
Grape Seed Extract
Known for its high concentration of vitamin C and E, it helps your skin fight against sun damage, smoke, pollution and UV light.
Barley Grass Extract
It is rich in phytochemicals, antioxidants, vitamins A, B 1,3, 6 and 12, niacin and pantothenic acid, selenium; barley grass helps the skin to strengthen its natural “immunity” and to remain healthy and youthful from within. The result is firmer, more elastic and firmer skin.
Due to its regenerative and healing potencies, calendula extract helps quickly with dull and stressed skin. At the same time, it is very famous for its brightening effect.
This neutralizes free radicals and protects against oxidative stress and UV radiation. As it is rich in vitamin C, it stimulates collagen production.
This lightens the skin and helps fight age spots and scars. It is also known for its anti-inflammatory effect. Even in ancient China, shiitake mushrooms were known to delay the aging process of the skin.
