Fresh Food Fresh Skin!

AGE TAKES ITS TOLL on your skin and as you get older the quest for the secret of youthful skin has been the subject of hundreds of books and films.

But can you fight the effects of aging skin?

Of course there isn’t a magic potion which will miraculously make your skin young again, but the causes and effects of ageing on the human body are better understood than ever before. Thanks to breakthroughs in fighting disease, genetics and stem cell technology we have a wider range of tools than ever before to combat the damage done to the skin by the passing of time.

Fresh foods that will help with fresh looking skin!

Adding these foods into your diet will help keep your skin feeling fresh and young. Remember these foods need to be also part of a well balanced diet and a daily exercise regime!

Olive oil

About 75% of the fat in olive oil is monounsaturated fatty acids, which may play a role in the youth boost. The antioxidant polyphenols in olive oil could also quench damaging free radicals.


The antioxidant lycopene (levels of which are higher in cooked, processed tomatoes) improves skin’s natural SPF.


It’s one of the best sources of lutein and zeaxanthin, nutrients that absorb and neutralize the free radicals created by UV light.


It’s the only type of nut that contains a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which is especially important for vegetarians who are skipping fish.

Orange peel

Researchers from the University of Arizona looked at people who reported that they ate citrus fruits, juices, and peels weekly. People who ate peels (orange peel or lemon zest, for example) had a 33% decreased risk for skin cancer.

Almond milk

This makes the list because of what it’s not: dairy. “Research shows dairy is highly inflammatory, which means it will aggravate acne, wrinkles, and rashes”.

Yellow bell peppers

One study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that people who ate the most green and yellow vegetables (up to 250 grams; one large pepper is about 190 grams) had fewer wrinkles, especially in the crow’s feet area,


This little fruit packs a wallop of vitamin C—nearly 120% of your daily needs in one medium kiwi. “C stimulates collagen synthesis, which keeps skin taught and smoothes fine lines,”


Eggs offer up a hefty dose of protein without tons of fat, and less fat is a good thing for your skin: Higher fat diets are associated with aging skin.


Cooked pumpkin is one of the top sources of beta-carotene. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A (a half cup of cooked pumpkin packs nearly 400% of your daily value for A), which is essential for the growth of skin cells.


Filling up on carrots can give you a natural glow. A 2011 UK study found that people who eat a higher amount of carotenoid-containing fruits and vegetables, like carrots, have more yellow tones in their skin, giving them a complexion that others rated as looking healthier.


Mackerel is one of the best sources of vitamin B12, containing 16 mcg, or 270% of what your body needs in a day.


Yes, water keeps your skin hydrated—and staying hydrated makes it appear more plump and less wrinkled.
