Using the right topical Dormer211 products is essential in keeping your skin healthy and hydrated and to help slow the ageing process, the foods we eat also have a vital role.
Nutrition is so important if you want to keep your skin healthy and glowing throughout your life.
Here are our top anti-ageing foods you should have in your regular diet:
- Berries are rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and anthocyanins which fight free radicals. Free radicals can damage skin. Vitamin C also plays a role in collagen production which is needed to give our skin structure and elasticity. Berries are also high in water content and hydrate the skin from the inside out. Some good examples are blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries.
- Avocados are a great source for healthy fats which keeps the skin moisturized and supple. They also contain vitamin E which is considered an antioxidant and it helps protect internally from UV radiation (sunscreen is still required topically) and fights free radicals.
- Green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, swiss chard, collard greens and arugula are incredibly anti-inflammatory, which is great for skin conditions like acne, rosacea or eczema. They are also full of vitamins and minerals that when eaten regularly will feed your skin from the inside and give it a healthy glow.
- Nuts are a great source of healthy fats and Vitamin E. They are anti-inflammatory and high in selenium. Selenium is great for inflammation and skin healing for those with acne. Some good examples of nuts are almonds, brazil nuts, cashews and walnuts.
- Fatty Fish (sustainably sourced) are high in omega 3 which is an essential nutrient for healthy skin. Omega 3 is anti-inflammatory and will help balance oil production and hydration levels in the skin. Some good sources of fatty fish are tuna, salmon and mackerel.
- Tomatoes are high in lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant for the skin. It helps prevent texture changes, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin discolouration. It also promotes the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Eating tomatoes raw, cooked or in tomato sauce all benefits the skin.
- Sweet potatoes are high in beta-carotene which is the precursor to Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps speed up wound healing, helps prevent breakouts and helps keep the skin moisturized. They are also high in fiber which leads to balanced blood sugar and healthy digestion and elimination. A healthy digestive tract promotes clear, glowing skin by absorbing key nutrients and eliminating toxins.
