Protecting Your Skin
 

Antioxidant-rich foods have a healthy effect on the skin due to their protection against free radicals—unstable molecules that weaken healthy cells and promote aging.

Antioxidant-rich foods include:

  • Apricots
  • Beans
  • Blueberries
  • Carrots
  • Nuts
  • Oranges
  • Peas
  • Salmon
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes

In addition to nutrient-rich foods, other ways to protect your skin include:

  1. Reduce sun exposure. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing sunscreen, sunglasses and protective clothing.
  2. Quit smoking. Smoking reduces skin elasticity and promotes wrinkles.
  3. Manage stress. Take steps to manage the uncontrolled stress in your everyday life by making time in the day to do things you enjoy.

For more information on foods that protect your skin and improve your health, schedule a session with our Registered Dietitian, Michelle Young, by calling (847) 535-7060 or contacting us.
