ANN/THE DAILY STAR – Spotless, wrinkle free and glowing skin are three of the biggest blessings in the world of dermatology. While most of us expect these conditions to be genetic handouts, experts inform us otherwise, they believe that the ‘glow’ can be easily achieved with a little bit of effort from those who sincerely seek it.
So, what’s the secret?
Here are few pointers from the beauty experts to help you get the picture-perfect look you have always wanted.
SPLURGE ON TOMATOES
Rich in Vitamin C and Lycopene, this vegetable is number one on the list.
A splurge on this item would ensure that the skin refrains from sagging and glows immensely, day in and out.
However, researchers suggest that lycopene is best absorbed when cooked and hence we recommend our readers to go big on comfort food like soups and stews.
A PINCH OF CINNAMON TO YOUR CUP OF TEA
If you don’t like tea at all, maybe put in a bit on your daily coffee, smoothies or even salads.
Experts believe that blood sugar levels are stabilised with the help of this amazing spice and that’s not all it also helps in stimulating oil production thus leading to clear skin in the process.
ADD IN FLAX SEEDS TO YOUR FAVOURITE GREENS
Great source of omega-3s and lignans, helping to keep the skin hydrated, glowing and smooth.
CHIA SEEDS IN YOUR MORNING DRINK
Like flax seeds, chia seeds are also one of the richest sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which helps to build skin cells and keep the foundation strong and wrinkle free.
INCORPORATE THE EXOTIC AVOCADOS IN YOUR DAILY DIET
The high antioxidants in the magic fruit, helps to fights free radicals that damage and age skin.
CHOMP AWAY CHOCOLATE
If by any chance you were thinking that we would recommend milk chocolates, then you must stop right away.
We know that you have a sweet tooth and would love to find any excuse to add in chocolates to your diet. Based on that understanding experts recommend dark chocolate incorporated into the diet.
The dark variants are said to be rich in flavanols, which help protect the skin from sun damage.
We believe if you can regularly get these six things in your diet, then you’ll be able to flaunt your skin, equally as those who have been ‘unfairly’ and already been blessed with good skin from above.
Just a little effort there!
