StrawberriesEvery person wants a skin that glows and looks absolutely flawless. To get that kind of clarity on your skin you might be spending hundreds on skin care products and still getting no result. The one thing unknown to people is that the beauty of your skin comes from within by eating the right food that makes your skin clear and glamorous whatever your complexion may be.
Eat the following and you will have visible results in months:

Strawberries: these are rich in Vitamin C which provides an anti-aging formula to your skin and does not let the wrinkles get formed very easily. Strawberries are something that can be eaten any way-make a smoothie or eat them raw. Even if you feel like, you can use the mashed strawberries as a mask. These have antioxidants that help and fight against blemishes.

Pomegranate: as you all know, green tea also has antioxidants but a pomegranate has way more antioxidants than green tea. If you are craving for a nice skin, immediately add this fruit to your list of must have’s. You could eat this, make juice or even apply on face as face pack. Keeping this face pack for a few minutes and washing it off also helps.

Pumpkin: have you ever thought why the pumpkins are orange in colour? It is because they contain a pigment known as carotenoids that gives the vegetable an orange tint. This carotenoid is very important as it finds out the radicals that are causing damage to your skin and neutralizes them. So, the wrinkles do not form. Pumpkin also has Vitamin C that boosts up the formation of collagen. This collagen is a supplement that maintains the elasticity of the skin. Vitamin A and E are also present in pumpkins and are important to your skin. Use pumpkin any way you want. Eat it, mash it, or apply as mask. Even the seeds are very helpful.

Olive Oil: extra virgin olive oil has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They not only make your skin softer, but also make your body more energetic. Olive oil keeps you hydrated and in turn keeps the skin smooth. Olive oil is great if you have dry skin and it is used in all kinds of skin treatments. Only by rubbing a little olive oil on the skin, you will see huge difference.

Brown rice: when you see the packaging on a lot of your skin products, you will notice that it has ceramide as a component. Ceramides in reality are lipid molecules which keeps your skin moisturized. This ceramide can be found in brown rice. Naturally occurring ceramides have great value as theycombine with the skin’s outer layer and keep it hydrated. There has been many clinical studies that show the hydrating capacity of brown rice.

By including these 5 ingredients in your food every day you can feel the change in your mind and body. Having a glamorous skin becomes easy by just eating right. After reading this you will see that chemical lotions, potions or fancy diets are nothing but waste of money.
