Protect Your Skin With These Foods

For those of you that put on sunscreen, you must know that they’re foods that help protect your skin from sun damage too!

Β 

Β This is in no way to tell you not to wear sunscreen, but to boost your chances of not getting sun damage.

Β 

Β So, I really hope it helps you out & the foods will be below…


Nuts & SeedsΒ 

Β 

Chia seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts & flax are all omega-3 essential fatty acids.

Β 

They are great for your skin, our bodies cannot make omega-3’s, so it’s essential that we get them in.

Β 

Of course, if you have a nut allergy, skip this one! What do omega-3’s do to your skin, you may be wondering ?

Β 

They help maintain your skin, and they are anti-inflammatory, It also helps when you spend too much time out in the sun.

Β 

It’s like if you’re cheeky with it, it can let you off the hook. For me of course I don’t suffer from this LMAOOO.. WOOOOOOOOO!!!

Β 

However, I know that a lot of you do, so I would suggest you eat trail mixes, and no ,not the ones with the chocolate in them.

Β 

It will help you get use to eating many kinds of nuts, and it will fill you up as a snack, rather than eating junk and getting further away from your health goals.

Β 

A quick side note here: Eggs & fish a great for this too, so if you want more protection or cannot eat nuts, then this another way.

Β 

Watermelon

Lycopene, which is an antioxidant, is packed in Watermelons!

Β 

Lycopene is actually the reason why Tomatoes are red, but that’s on some other ish…

Β 

The point being, Lycopene absorbs both UVA & UVB radiation, even though it will take up to between 4 and 8 weeks to kick in.

Β 

Once it does, you will be protected and the Lycopene will act as a natural sunblock. So, an example, if you start eating them in May, by June it should work/ from May until July it should work.

Β 

The more watermelon you eat per day, the better too, even though you will still have to wait the weeks.

Β 

BlueberriesΒ 

This is really good to start getting into the habit of eating Blueberries, as it helps protect your skin during the summer.

Β 

Blueberries are really rich in antioxidants and fight off free radicals that can damage your skin due to sun exposure and stress.

Β 

The vitamin C helps prevent wrinkles too, so add this to your breakfast or your yoghurt for snack & feel good knowing that this is a great way to protect your skin from the sun.

Β 

Cauliflower

Normally, you have to move to the bright coloured fruits and vegetables to get your antioxidants in abundance.

Β 

So, this may surprise you, but Cauliflower is pale but also has a lot of antioxidants in it too.

Β 

It contains so much, in fact, that it helps fight off oxidative stress and free radicals.

Β 

So don’t sleep on Cauliflower and eat up.

Β 


THAT’S IT!

Β 

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys.

Β 

Please do let me know though…
