Is for… An­tiox­i­dants

Fairlady Bride - - Beauty -

They pro­tect cells from the dam­age caused by free rad­i­cals as­so­ci­ated with stress, a poor diet and en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tants like cig­a­rette smoke, among other things. Free rad­i­cals break down col­la­gen and elastin, so in­creas­ing your an­tiox­i­dant up­take will help you look and feel healthy dur­ing the in­evitably stress­ful run-up to your wed­ding. To keep your skin healthy, choose prod­ucts con­tain­ing vi­ta­min C, vi­ta­min E, retinol, resver­a­trol, green tea and idebenone. Grapes, avos, figs, straw­ber­ries, ap­ples, bananas, grape­fruit and toma­toes are also great sources, but re­mem­ber to watch those calo­ries!
