Protect your skin from inside out!

Protect your skin from inside out!

Most of us have forgotten that not only cosmetic products are powerful enough to save our skin from a sun damage and keep it beautiful. According to study, published in March in the ‘Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology’, certain vitamins can be replaced by various foods that will similarly improve defenses against skin cancer.

Strawberries: Wrinkles and age-related dryness may be eliminated by eating more foods that are rich in vitamin C, such as strawberries. Vitamin C gives a smoothing effect and protects against free radicals produced from ultraviolet rays. It also plays the main role in collagen synthesis which has been rewarded for keeping the skin firm and beautiful.

Coffee: Drinking a cup of coffee every day may have a positive effect in eliminating the risks of developing skin cancer. According to a study of more than 93,000 women, those who drank one cup of espresso daily reduced their risk of developing skin cancer by about 10 percent. And the more they drank coffee, the lower was their risk.

Tomatoes: Tomatoes have been announced to be rich in protecting agent lycopene that helps to avoid sunburns. After one study it has been revealed that participants had almost 50 percent less skin reddening after they ate 2 1⁄2 tablespoons of tomato paste in addition to their regular diet. However, it seems like supplements weren’t as effective in protecting the skin against sunburn.

Tofu: Tofu is a great source of isoflavones that help to keep the firmness of the skin and lead to fewer winkles. Isoflavones have been also been announced to prevent human’s skin against collagen breakdown, so try eating three portions of tofu at least to save the youngness.

Papaya: Vitamin C can be also appropriated from papaya fruits. Additionally to earlier mentioned facts, this vitamin helps in protecting skin cells against sun damage and UV rays that break the DNA and eventually may even cause cancerous growth.

Corn: Corn is an excellent source of lutein which just like lycopene protects the skin against UV damage. You can eat either fresh or frozen vegetables that may be even more healthful than those sold in the supermarkets.
