Have you Lost that Glow? Here are the 10 Best Foods To Get Your Skin Back In Shape!skinfoods_0

It really is true…you are what you eat! By now, I’m pretty sure everyone here has heard of the book “Eat This Not That.” Well, if you are a lucky lady like me, your boyfriend (now EX) gave it to you for Valentine’s Day…Yes, he did.  (also reason 892 that he is now my EX.)

Where was I? Oh yes, the book actually has some great healthy tips that I like referring to when I am eating out.

Here are my take-aways to pass along to you:

Eating the right vegetables, nuts, seeds, oils, fish, teas, and chocolates can shield your skin from the ravages of the environment, time, and even cancer. To address just about every skin woe, from wrinkles, to acne, to dryness, here are the 10 best foods that I’ve learned WOMEN can eat for healthy skin.

1. Almonds -

Healthy Skin Boost: Sun Blocker

Almonds are stuffed with Vitamin E which helps protect you against sun damage

2. Flaxseeds -

Healthy Skin Boost: Wrinkle Fighter

These little seeds deliver a whole lotta omega-3 fatty acids, which erase spots and iron out fine lines.

3. Cooked Tomatoes -

Skin Boost: Sun Blocker

Lycopene, the phytochemical that makes tomatoes red, helps eliminate skin-aging free radicals caused by ultraviolet rays.  I have no idea what any of that means but Hey, I’ll eat ‘em…

4. Sweet Potatoes -

Skin Boost: Wrinkle Fighter

They're loaded with vitamin C, which smoothes out wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen. (Oprah even loves them…click here to watch the video in Daily LOL)

5. Spinach

Healthy Skin Boost: Cancer Defense Mechanism

The folate in these veggies, which helps maintain and repair DNA, may reduce the likelihood of cancer-cell growth.

6. Safflower Oil

Healthy Skin Boost: Natural Moisturizer

The omega-6 fatty acids found in safflower oil can be the ultimate moisturizer for people who suffer from dry, flaky, or itchy skin.

7. Canned Tuna

Healthy Skin Boost: Skin Tightener

Hallelujah! Finally, my favorite deli sandwich has a little secret:  Selenium. This nutrient helps preserve elastin, a protein that keeps your skin smooth and tight.

8. Carrots

Healthy Skin Boost: Blemish Blaster

Think of carrots as orange wonder wands - good for the eyeballs, and good for clearing up breakouts. No magic here, though, just plenty of Vitamin A.

9. Green Tea

Healthy Skin Boost: Cancer Defender

Green tea releases catechin, an antioxidant with proven anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. Research found that drinking 2 to 6 cups a day not only helps prevent skin cancer but might also reverse the effects of sun damage by neutralizing the changes that appear in sun-exposed skin. (The tea's antioxidants degrade as it cools, so drink it while it's hot).

10. Dark Chocolate

Healthy Skin Boost: Sun Blocker

We saved the best for last… the antioxidants in dark chocolate reduce roughness in the skin and provide sun protection.
