Woman-eating-fruit-1While we may want to get a tan to give ourselves  better skin appearance, the truth is that UV exposure accelerates skin aging. This causes the skin to lose its elasticity which may result in wrinkles. Further, in order to repair the skin from the damage posed by exposure to UV light needs expensive treatment with the use of anti-aging products. It is forecasted that sales of anti-aging products will exceed $114 billion by 2015.

The cost may be bad news but there is a very inexpensive way that you can easily improve your skin which some people may have overlooked. A study in 2002 found that eating certain foods can help your skin repair and rejuvenate itself. Also do not forget water, which the skin needs to stay hydrated.

With that in mind, here are five of the best foods you can eat for a healthier and better skin.

1. Almonds:

Almonds are rich in vitamin E, which is a great antioxidant which enables toxins to be cleared away and also protects skin cells from UV rays and other environmental factors. If you want to revitalize your skin and even more, you can make a wonderful face mask using a mixture of honey, almond oil and lemon juice.This will ensure you have  better skin that glows.

2. Strawberries:

Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C and contain more vitamin C than most fruits including Oranges. Vitamin C is the key for firmer skin as it aids in the production of collagen. An added benefit is that they also contain antioxidants that can help slow memory loss as you get older.

3. Salmon:

Salmon is a rich source of omega-3 and other healthy fatty acids which allow nutrients to enter cells. They also help diminish fine lines and wrinkles by improving your skin’s elasticity and preventing clogged pores. So get out there and grill some salmon (or broil it…  smoke it… lots of possibilities).

4. Carrots:

Carrots contain a large amount of beta carotene, an antioxidant that becomes vitamin A inside your body and thus helps protect the skin against the harmful effects of UV rays. In addition, a lack of vitamin A may result in dry skin. Of interest cooked carrots deliver more beta carotene than raw ones.

5. Kiwis:

As well as being very tasty, kiwi fruits contain the antioxidant vitamins C and E, which help protect against UV damage. One study even showed that kiwi can help you achieve better skin with radiance similar to a tan in just a few weeks. And vitamin C has long been linked with less skin dryness and wrinkling.

So go ahead and splurge on these foods, your skin will thank you for it…
