This vibrant fruit (yep, a tomato is a fruit), is not only great for Friday night chips and salsa night, as well as heart-healthy salads, but it is also packed with potent antioxidants to help fight all the yucky stuff in the air that touches your skin. Um, do Bloody Marys count?
Since we’re on the topic of salsa, we may as well add its delicious cousin, the key ingredient of guacamole, to our discussion. Avocados contain healthy fats that can assist in reducing inflammation. Since inflammation is one of the major forces that brings about skin aging, natural anti-inflammatories, like avocados, are big skin-savers.
I like my oranges as juice in mimosas, lol, but regardless, this juicy citrus fruit is full of vitamin C. While topically, vitamin C can help to brighten your complexion, when eaten (or sipped!) it can aid in the production of collagen. Yes, please!
Carrots contain carotenoids, which may work against fine lines from the sun. Add some shredded carrots to your salad at lunch, or dip some baby carrots in ranch for an afternoon snack.
While kale is currently very trendy, it is also a helper in attaining nice skin. Why? Kale contains a good amount of iron, which aids in oxygenating your skin. Add an extra kale salad to your weekly meal plan, or toss some into your morning smoothie for an extra skin boost.
