The Secret to Healthy, Younger Looking Skin – Superfoods

By Scott Mehler

You may have heard that an important way to maintain over-all health through diet is by eating the a “rainbow” of foods.  This means eating a variety of fruits and vegetables in an abundance of colors.  Think not just green, but yellow, red, purple, and blue.  These different color plant-based foods add a wide variety of nutrients such as vitamins, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and phytonutrients.

Just like your body needs a variety of healthy foods to thrive, your skin needs a variety of beneficial ingredients to look its best. That is because skin cells absorb these skin beneficial superfoods just like your body absorbs the superfoods you eat.  

What exactly do skin superfood do for your skin? The answer is, a lot. They provide the following benefits:

Sun Damage Restorer: Phytosterols and gamma-linoleic acid repair skin after sun damage that we can’t even see.

Skin Cell Regeneration: Certain phytonutrients can stimulate skin cell activity and encourages skin regeneration. This leads to younger and healthier looking skin.

Slow Premature Aging: Antioxidants and flavonoids fight tree radicals, combat sun damage and photoaging, boost collagen and elastin for firmer skin, and fight age spots, wrinkles, and premature aging.

Protect Against Environmental Pollutants: Antioxidants fight free radicals and combat oxidative damage, which is a leading cause of skin cancer and premature aging.

Wrinkle Fighters: Ellegic acid prevents early wrinkles and boosts your skin’s natural collagen and elastin production, which makes your skin look more youthful and firm.

Intense Moisturizer: Phytosterols and malic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), help to restore moisture and reduce water loss on the skin, keeping you hydrated and moisturized for longer.

Some of the superfoods that provide all of these benefits include, red raspberry seed, grape seed, starflower, evening primrose, chamomile, amaranth seed, green tea, beta carotene, sea buckthorn, algae, and sea kelp.
