How to Save Our skin naturally sun damage - Super FoodsWe women always want to look fabulous no matter what. That’s why we always try different diets (which mostly do not work) to lose weight, and this is one of the reasons why you want to get tanned as soon as the summer has arrived. If we want to look and feel great, and I mean healthy, we have to find healthy alternatives.
Unfortunately, most of us do not realize that ultraviolet rays do significant damage to the formation of free radicals in the skin cells that can lead to serious health problems – recent studies indicate a strong link between free radicals and the risk of disease.
Fortunately, our bodies naturally produce some antioxidants compounds to neutralize free radicals before they can damage biological processes. But we also need a diet rich in antioxidants, due to antioxidants like vitamins A, C, D and E as well as selenium and omega-3 significantly reduce inflammation and skin damage caused by the sun.
Super foods that can save your skin from sun damage:
I. To look and feel fabulous we have to incorporate foods rich in antioxidants in our diet:
bright colored fruits and vegetables such as carrots, squash, broccoli, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, cabbage, melons, peaches, apricots, watermelon, blackberries to get more vitamin A.
orange, lemon, kiwi, green, broccoli, green leafy vegetables peppers, strawberries, tomatoes to get more vitamin C.
Walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green leafy vegetables, barley, millet to get more vitamin E.
Seafood, oatmeal, barley, buckwheat, eggs, vegetables, chicken and garlic for more selenium.
Wild salmon, walnuts, flax seeds to get more omega-3.
II. We also have a moderate-healthy tan sun (before 10:00 am and after 5:00 pm) every day-because this is how easily get vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption, necessary for the protection of muscle weakness, important for the prevention and treatment of breast and colon cancer and osteoporosis, necessary for normal thyroid function and normal blood clotting. You can also find: fish liver, dairy products, dandelion greens, oats, salmon, sardines, potatoes, tuna and vegetable oils.
III. We must avoid eating carrots, celery, parsley, parsnips and limes before going to the beach-which can make your skin very sensitive to sunlight.
As for me, I always try to get antioxidants from whole foods instead of supplements and get a healthy tan (very early morning) instead of using sunscreens full of chemicals to look and feel healthy.
A healthy lifestyle and a healthy diet are the keys to a young and healthy skin and a younger and healthier. And remember: there is no such thing as a safe tan or sunscreen. So we must avoid excessive sun exposure.
