Get The Perfect Skin With These 8 Foods

The skin is such an integral part to beauty and women have been searching for ways to make it perfect since the beginning of time. There are facials and creams and treatments all geared towards giving us glistening youthful skin, but we don’t realize that we can spend just a few minutes in our refrigerator to find just what we need.
Here are eight foods to help you achieve it.

1. Avocados
Though very rich, avocados can help to eliminate under eye circles and their rich supply of vitamin E promotes circulation
2. Berries
If you are looking to turn back the hands of time, try eating some strawberries or blueberries. They help to prevent aging and give an added dose of protection for your skin.

3. Broccoli
Broccoli and other green vegetables keep your skin moisturized by helping your body to produce sebum, which lubricates your skin and hair.
4. Carrots
We always associate carrots with being great for our eyesight, but they also work wonders for the scalp.

5. Mushrooms
Mushrooms contain loads of selenium which improves the skin’s elasticity and protects it from the harmful rays of the sun.

6. Oranges
Though the Vitamin C in oranges boosts our immune system, the vitamin A in the fruits help reduce inflammation of the skin and it keeps our pores clean.

7. Papaya
Though wonderful to eat, papayas also decrease the appearance of dark spots when placed on the skin.

8. Watermelon
Watermelons have loads of lycopene which help to keep the skin soft and smooth.
