Skin Specialists Define Foods You Must Add to Your Diet for Perfect Skin – Saloni Skin Corner

Posted by Saloni Editorial on

“It’s true that we don’t have studies to prove again and again that certain foods cause or prevent acne, But if you surveyed a group of dermatologists, many of us would say, ‘Yes, diet has an effect.” says dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, and author of Simple Skin Beauty.

Another MD, Jessica Wu, a dermatologist in Los Angeles and author of Feed Your Face says, “There’s a growing body of research showing that diet really does affect your complexion, What you eat can affect your hormone balance, cause acne, and create or lessen inflammation, which is associated with skin aging.”

Foods You Must Add to Your Diet for Perfect Skin:

Green Tea:

“Animal studies showed protection from skin cancer [as a result of green tea consumption]. Both animal and human studies have credibly demonstrated that topical green tea formulations reduce sun damage. Green tea appears to exert sun damage protection by quenching free radicals and reducing inflammation rather than by blocking UV rays. Therefore, green tea may synergistically enhance sun protection when used in addition to a sunscreen.”

Berries:

”In my studies of collagen, vitamin C emerges as very important for beautiful and healthy skin. It helps protect skin, fights oxidation, encourages collagen synthesis and more.”

-Kathy Heshelow, founder of Sublime Beauty

Almond Milk:

”Antioxidants protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals alter cell genetic code, resulting to mutated proteins. When mutation happens, cancer may develop. Free radicals often cause irreversible damage to the skin; it contributes to collagen and elastin depletion.”
