Green Vegetables

I always recommend adding more greens to your diet and with greens I mean all green veggies - be it spinach, broccoli, kale and green beans. These superfoods will give your skin the nutrition it wants.

Rich in vitamin K and zinc, spinach is a powerhouse of nutrients that helps improve blood circulation and coagulation, reduces inflammation, and helps prevent acne breakouts.

Not only they improve metabolism and digestion but also reduce the chances of having constipation. All of this in turn makes our skin happy and glowing.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are one of my favourite fruits, not because of their versatility when it comes to cooking up some amazing recipes but because of their anti-ageing properties.

Tomatoes are the best source of lycopene, and lycopene is an anti-ageing antioxidant.

Tomatoes are a rich source of vitamin k, A, B1, B7 and C, zinc, potassium, phosphorous, iron, folate, and magnesium. So, be it soups or pastas or exotic curry, tomatoes in any form, preferably cooked, will do wonders to your skin.

Almonds

Almonds are the best source of natural vitamin, Eyou. One must have at least 10-15 almonds a day.

Many people debate on how to eat almonds - soaked or as is. The answer is to just eat them regularly - it doesn't really matter how to eat them.

Eating almonds every day will keep your skin problems like dryness, wrinkles and ageing at bay, and make sure you eat gulbandi or marmara almonds as they have higher amount of vitamin E.

This nutritious nut supports the production of collagen and is packed with calcium, making it an excellent superfood for hair, teeth, nails and skin.

Flaxseed

A highly potent superfood, these tiny granule like seeds are high in omega 3 fatty acids and help in building healthy skin cell function as well as support the production of new collagen.

All of this in turn helps keep our skin healthy and wrinkle-free. You can toss flaxseeds in your porridges, salads, poha or upma to reap its maximum benefits.

The alpha linolic acids found in flaxseeds help reduce dryness, itchiness and flakiness, and the vitamin B content of flaxseeds help improve acne conditions like rocacea and eczema.
