Nutrition plays a very important role in our looks. From the shape of our body to the brightness of our skin and hair, the foods we consume affect our health and our appearance.
As far as the beauty of skin is concerned, certain foods can help it look younger, softer, brighter or even be healed faster.
Guacamole lovers may know it already. Avocados are a great source of biotin and help prevent dry skin. Moreover, when applied topically, they can also hydrate parched skin.
Green tea is the absolute skin-friendly beverage thanks to its impressive amount of polyphenols that make your skin healthier.
Tomatoes are a great source of the antioxidant lycopene which helps slow down cellular damage, while its paste prevents sunburn when combined with olive oil.
Salmon contains astaxanthin, a carotenoid that improves skin elasticity. This way it slows down ageing by reducing fine lines in our skin.
Eggs are a great source of protein, they contain biotin, an essential vitamin that acts against dry skin. Beans, another protein source, help repair cells that have suffered free radical damage. During digestion, protein breaks down into amino acids that speed the repair and regeneration of skin cells and collagen. The antioxidant-rich pomegranate when applied topically helps skin create more collagen, while speeding healing.
In the same concept, Purelogicol’s Collagen Peptide Skin Supplement actively stimulates natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production to promote a more youthful, smooth, and radiant complexion. Its advanced encapsulated technology protects the collagen, vitamins and minerals from oxidation and stomach acid degradation. This way it becomes your most powerful ally in anti-ageing nutrition.
