Snack your way to fresh-looking skin

Snack your way to fresh-looking skin

While there are a ton of beauty products out there promising a clear complexion with anti-aging results, sometimes, the key to glowing, blemish-free skin is sitting in your pantry or fridge. If you've been fighting discoloration, acne or dry flakes recently, try changing up your diet. With these nutrition tips, you'll be rocking a radiant complexion in no time.

Nut craze
If you're skin has been looking pretty rough these days, put down the peanuts and nosh on some walnuts instead. Not only do these nuts contain collagen-boosting copper, but they're also equipped with omega-3, a fatty acid that can improve the elasticity of your skin, keeping it firm and supple.

Chocolate devotion
It might seem odd, but chocolate can actually do wonders for your complexion - especially dark chocolate. The delectable product is full of flavonols, which are a type of antioxidants that can prevent your body's cells from atmospheric damage - including UV rays - and unwanted bacteria. For the best results, dermatologists recommend eating chocolate that's 70 percent cacao or more. So don't be afraid to grab that bar of dark chocolate or drink a few ounces of strong cocoa by adding some to your morning coffee each day. However, digesting chocolate is not the only way to receive its skin-clearing benefits.

"When applied topically, the caffeine in chocolate may temporarily reduce skin puffiness," dermatologist Jessica Wu, MD, told Fitness magazine. 

Consider pairing your chocolate intake with a caffeine-induced lotion, such as the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Engergizing Eye Gel.

Sweet potatoes
Do you love scooping spoonfuls of sweet potatoes onto your plate at Thanksgiving dinner? If so, here's some good news - the delicious holiday staple is a powerful anti-aging agent because of its high content of vitamin C. The mineral triggers collagen production, which in turn prevents fine lines and sagging skin. According to U.S. News & World Report, a study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people who ate 4mg of vitamin C, or the equivalent that half a sweet potato contains, each day greatly reduced their facial wrinkles over a period of three years. Now you have an excuse to eat these sweet dinner favorites year-round.

Next time you're headed for the beach, pack some tomatoes along with your sunscreen. The lycopene found in the juicy red fruit blocks UV rays from damaging cells, protecting your skin from discoloration, sun spots and other harmful effects. Tomatoes offer these benefits fresh and uncooked, but for best results, try heating them up.

I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using? I'm experiencing some minor security problems with my latest site and I would like to find something more safe. Do you have any recommendations?

When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service? Cheers!
