Foods to Improve Your Skin texture


1. Green vegetables: Vegetables such as spinach, collard greens and kale are rich in Vitamin A, C, E, iron and fiber. Vitamin E is essential for healthy, smooth and younger-looking skin.

2. Vitamin C: It helps the body fight infection and disease. It pumps up the immune system and promotes healing. Citrus fruits, strawberries, tomatoes, broccoli and cabbage are all vitamin C-rich foods.

3. Green Tea: Green tea has also been shown to lower cholesterol, improve immune function and reduce the risk of specific types of cancer.

4. Milk: Milk is rich in calcium, vitamins B2, B12 and D. Calcium, paired with the calcium-absorption booster vitamin D, helps to maintain strong bones and healthy teeth.

5. Soy: Soy proteins are rich in amino acids, vitamin E and many antioxidants. These components help the skin retain moisture, smooth skin’s appearance and improve elasticity.
