What you put into your body is important!
Just add these 8 foods to your daily diet and get the beautiful skin you've always wanted.
Just four Brazil nuts a day will provide you with the full recommended daily amount of selenium, an antioxidant that helps prevent age spots, protects your skin from sun damage, and can even help to prevent skin cancer. Try sprinkling them on top of a salad!
Tomatoes are high in lycopene - an ultra-powerful antioxidant that helps to rid the body of free radicals that can age your skin. All you need is half a cup of cooked tomatoes per day to keep you protected.
Avocados are full of fatty acids that naturally moisturize your skin, and are also filled with vitamin E. While the healthy fats keep your skin supple and soft, the vitamin E will help slow the ageing process.
Dark Chocolate (who knew?)

Carrots are great not just for your eyes, they’re also great for your skin! These crunchy orange vegetables are filled with vitamin A, which helps clear up acne breakouts. All it takes is half a cup of shredded carrots per day.
Blueberries have one of the highest concentration of antioxidants of any common fruit or vegetable. These antioxidants help to protect your skin from the effects of premature ageing. Eat them plain or mix them in with yogurt or some other snack, blueberries can keep your skin looking young and healthy for years to come.
Spinach is packed with both antioxidants and important nutrients. Filled with vitamins B, C, E, potassium, magnesium, iron, omega-3 fatty acids, and more, it’s no surprise that this leafy green is great for your skin. Pack an extra powerful punch by paring with complementary vegetables such as tomatoes, avocados, and Brazil nuts to make your skin look great.
