The salad your skin will love

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

Make your skin glow from the in­side with this healthy bowl of good­ness

Salmon This shop­ping list sta­ple gives the body’s amino acids the fuel they need to make col­la­gen, which strength­ens your skin. Plus, salmon is packed full of hy­drat­ing good fats.

Spinach Boast­ing plenty of carotenoids and an­tiox­i­dants, spinach helps with sun sen­si­tiv­ity and pro­tects against free rad­i­cal dam­age.

Sweet potato The beta-carotene in this root veg makes it a win­ner for the skin. Beta-carotene con­verts into vi­ta­min A, which is vi­tal for an en­vi­able com­plex­ion.

Red cap­sicum The ly­copene in red cap­sicum acts al­most like an in­ter­nal SPF, while its im­pres­sive quota of vi­ta­min C will keep your col­la­gen pro­duc­tion healthy.

Wal­nuts These are a must for their crunch but also be­cause they’re rich in vi­ta­min E, which keeps skin soft and sup­ple, and it con­tains red­ness-re­duc­ing and anti-in­flam­ma­tory zinc.
