3rd Food for your skin - Nuts

by Beth Hopkins July 29, 2014

 

As with many of the skin-healthy foods on our list, the good stuff in nuts -- especially almonds -- has to do with antioxidantactivity. Vitamin E combats skin-aging free radicals, especially protecting skin from sun damage due to UV-sunlight-generated free radicals [source: Self]. Vitamin E also tends to help skin hold in moisture, relieving dryness and making skin look younger.

Pairing vitamin E with selenium can enhance its antioxidant abilities, so go ahead and throw some almonds into your cottage cheese (great source of selenium) for a skin-revitalizing snack [source: LifeScript].

Almonds, pistachios and walnuts also provide a nice supply of those omega-3 fatty acids that we mentioned earlier.

The liquid on the next page does a body good -- with just a little tweaking.
