Here are 10 foods to include in your diet for flawless skin
Dark Chocolate: To begin with, the most irresistible temptation for a foodie. Who said chocolates were high in calories and bad for skin? Rich in antioxidants, dark chocolate prevents sun damage to skin.
Green Tea: Yes, we have heard it before that green tea is good to lose weight. We are not going confirm or deny that. But we have reason to believe that this beverage is rich in antioxidants and L-theanine (a unique amino acid) that eases your stress.
Carrot: Ever since you were a child, you have been told that this vegetable is good for your eyes. But let me tell you carrots are food for your skin too. Have a skin breakout and wondering what to do? Carrots can help. The veggie is a rich source of Vitamin A, carrots are capable of preventing excess production of cells in the outer layer of the skin where excess sebum joins dead cells to clog pores. Substitute your chips with carrots as Vitamin A can kill skin-cancer cells.
Red bell peppers: Rich in Vitamin C, the tasty vegetable also contains Vitamin B6 and dietary fibre that forms a major ingredient of your skin medicine. The catotenoids in Red bell pepper fights acne, ups blood circulation to your skin while fighting wrinkles.
Papaya: Didn't you know this already? Yes, we all know the benefits of this easily available inexpensive fruit, but we give it a royal ignore. With zero cholesterol, minimum calories and also low in fructose, papaya is rich in vitamin C, E and beta-carotene that can fight acne and prevent inflammation.
Coconut oil: This is not just good for hair growth but a skin tonic too. Coconut oil is a rich source of lauric acid, acts as antibacterial and antiviral agent that wards off acne, inflammation, viruses and infections. A rich source of vitamin E, coconut oil helps keep skin soft and wrinkle-free.
Spinach: A rich source of iron, the leafy veggie can offer all the benefits that your skin needs. Vitamin A, C, E..you name it, spinach has it! Again an antioxidant that can keep skin problems at bay.
