Things to eat for acne­free, glow­ing skin

HT City - - LIFESTYLE -

Your beauty rou­tine is not enough to give you glow­ing, flaw­less skin. Look­ing your fresh­est best also de­pends on your diet and life­style.

Un­healthy, junk food af­fects not just your weight loss plans, but will also your skin. Here is what to eat to en­sure acne-free and ra­di­ant skin:

Toma­toes: They are a good an­tiox­i­dant that neu­tralise free rad­i­cals re­spon­si­ble for skin age­ing. Also add beet­roots, pa­payas and grape­fruits to your diet.

Or­anges: Rich in vi­ta­min C, or­anges re­ju­ve­nate skin cells and smoothen and de­pig­ment skin for a glow­ing tone.

Gar­lic: A su­per­food, gar­lic is rich in al­licin, which kills the harm­ful bac­te­ria and viruses in your body. Gar­lic also re­duces ac­nebased in­flam­ma­tion. Nuts: Munch on nuts to gain a suf­fi­cient amount of the min­er­als zinc and se­le­nium, which are im­por­tant for healthy skin. Yo­ghurt: The pro­bi­otic is rich in good bac­te­ria, and its lac­tic acid makes dead skin cells dis­ap­pear. It can also re­duce fine lines and wrin­kles.

Broc­coli: It is full not only of an­tiox­i­dants, but the vi­ta­mins C and E. It also boosts col­la­gen pro­duc­tion to keep the skin healthy and sup­ple. Vi­ta­min E is vi­tal for pro­tect­ing the skin cell mem­brane from get­ting dam­aged by the sun’s ul­tra­vi­o­let rays.
