Many foods, along with being good for our general health, are especially good for our skin. More and more we’re seeing these foods as ingredients in beauty products. For a double-dose of anti-aging, you should eat these foods as well as apply beauty products using them.
Soy is rich in hyaluronic acid, a substance that attracts moisture and keeps skin looking plump. Along with using soy-based products in your beauty regime, add edamame and tofu to your diet.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, so the saying goes, but it’s also full of vitamin A which your body coverts to retinoic acid. Retinoic acid helps with skin cell rejuvenation. Serums infused with apple will even out skin tones.
Grapes have anti-inflammatory properties and can calm redness and soothe skin, and grape seed oil helps shrink pores. That’s why you’ll find it in many facial toners.
