For women: These 6 smoothies will give you healthy and glowing skin

The healthier your eating habits the better your skin says Samantha Heller, a nutritionist from New York University’s’ Medical Center. For our skin to feel good the food should contain all the nutrients : plenty of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and flavonoids. Each fruit and veggie has some antioxidants in them but the best pick would be berries.

NB! An antioxidant is a helpful molecule that slows down and helps regulate free radicals. When free radicals are not being balanced it has a huge influence on our health starting with different chain reactions on cell and tissue level- speeding aging, damaging the skin on a cell level, bringing out inflammation and possibly cancer.

What’s on your plate dictates the health of your skin

The antioxidants provided from berries, fruits and veggies help protect our body and skin from premature aging. Well rounded diet is one of the premises of having youthful skin. For the skin to feel good our plate should contain all the nutrients: loads of antioxidants (vitamins), minerals, fatty acids and flavonoids. Collagen and elastin are also important for the skin to look good. Collagen provides the structure of the skin, elastin the elasticity. Food that is poor in antioxidants and high in calories increases the damage done by free radicals and fastens the aging process.

Why are antioxidants so important?

  1. To help reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  2. Help to ensure the normal skin complexion
  3. Reduce the opportunity for cancer formation
  4. Help maintain normal metabolism and strengthen the immune system
  5. Help to improve brain function
