Best Antioxidants for Skin

When you look at people, what is the first thing that you look at? Is it their eyes, their nose, their hair or their skin? Most people would probably say that skin is the first part that they look at. When your skin is vibrantly looking and glowing, more people will begin to notice and will want to know all of your skin secrets.

Skin is considered as the biggest organ in the human body. It has several functions; it serves as the prime protector from the harmful rays coming from the sun and it also serves as defense against bacteria and germs from the environment. Not just this, another function is that the skin is capable of converting the sunlight to D vitamin, an essential vitamin that is needed by the body.

As people age, skin also changes, from smooth to wrinkled, saggy and not tightly looking. Is there any way that people can prevent this from happening? Yes, there is, even though aging cannot be stopped at least the signs of aging can be prevented especially the changing of the skin. One of the best ways would be the use of antioxidants for the skin.

Antioxidants are substances that can be man-made or most of the time, natural. An antioxidant delays the process of cell damage. This can be found mostly in foods like fruits and vegetables. This is sometimes made into a dietary supplements that is offered to consumers in the market.

Here are some of the best sources of  antioxidants for skin that you will enjoy:

  • Eating apples

Apple is a fruit that has high content of antioxidants. Its major source of antioxidant is the polyphenols. For the apple to be effective, don’t peel the apple rather eat the whole one.

  • Make smoothies that are made from berries

Berries are on one of the best sources of antioxidants including blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, and strawberries.

  • Prefer more the green tea

Green tea contains catechin polyphenols that are strong antioxidants. One cup of green tea has greater effects than spinach, carrots or strawberries.

  • Enjoy yogurt

Yogurt contains the antioxidant glutathione. This will boost the antioxidant activity of the body.

  • Eat dark chocolate

Dark chocolate contains epicathechin that can increase the antioxidant levels of the body. But then the effect will be cancelled if you eat chocolate while you drink milk.

  • Choose red wine

Red wine is high in resveratrol which is a powerful antioxidant. One glass of red wine would be enough to give an antioxidant boost to your body.

Most important thing to know is that if you will choose the foods that have antioxidants, it should be rich with vitamins C, A,E, and that contains polyphenolic antioxidants and carotenoids.

Foods that are rich with antioxidants will help your skin glow more and become radiantly looking. This will not just benefit the adult people but also the younger ones. The younger you start taking in antioxidant rich food, you will surely delay cell damage and aging will never be spotted on you.

Enjoy life and enjoy your skin with natural antioxidants for you will surely benefit from the result of it.
