Five Foods for radiant skin

Hi everybody!

Today I'm going to teach you how to have a fabulous skin.
Here are the 5 health foods you need to eat:

AVOCADOS and nuts and seeds are rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids that improve elasticity and suppleness.

GUAVA Weight for weight, guava contains four times more of the powerful antioxidant, vitamin C, than oranges. Antioxidantes help to neutralise free radicals, which can cause ageing and wrinkling of the skin. Vitamin C is also essential for the manufacture of collagen, a protein that supports the skin. Collagen breaks down as we get older, causing the skin to sag.

BRAZIL NUTS Rich in selenium - just four Brazil nuts will provide over 100% of the recommended daily amount, which helps protect the skin against sun damage and age spots.

SALMON Omega-3 fats in salmon, encourage the body to produce anti-infiammatory compounds that help to slow and even reverse the signs of skin ageing.

CARROTS, mangoes and other orange/red fruit and veg are rich in the pigment, betacarotene, which helps to improve skin colour, making it look healthier and more attractive. In a recent study at Bristol University, people noticed an improvement in their skin just two months after eating more carotene-rich foods.
