Maintain a smooth and radiant skin is not only achieved with the use of creams and facials; food is also essential to keep it healthy and slow the effects of aging.
Two of the most important aspects of food to maintain a beautiful skin are to control inflammation, which can accelerate aging throughout your body, and eating a diet rich in phytonutrients (plant-based) and antioxidants, which can help in the daily struggle against other environmental factors that faces your skin.
Another important aspect is to limit sugar consumption, because it damages the collagen which can lead to wrinkles. Your diet should regularly include a lot of colorful fruits and vegetables, especially dark green leafy vegetables, fruits and orange vegetables and healthy fats.
