We live in a world where every next person is going for cosmetic products and chemical procedures to have clear and glowing skin. But still people are not thinking that our skin shows what we eat. So dietary modification becomes important for this.
There are some food stuffs that help your skin glowing and keep them healthy. I will be writing on all the possible issues related to diet. The antioxidants plays an important role to keep us glowing, they are mainly present in fruits and vegetables, but not in sufficient amount in all of them.
WHAT TO EAT FOR GLOWING SKIN?
Tomatoes: Tomatoes are a good source of lycopene, which is an anti- ageing antioxidant, so include good amount of tomatoes in your diet. Most surprising thing in this is that it is better absorbed when cooked.
Walnuts: It is not required to eat a cupful of walnuts per day, a maximum of 4-5 per day is a great addition to your diet. The main component in this is Vit – E and Omega 3 fatty acid, that makes your skin glowing, brights up your hair and is good for your teeth as well.
