Although there is no solid evidence that antioxidants prevent skin from aging, experts agree that they have the power to “catch” free radicals and hence may protect us from certain diseases. Antioxidant-rich meals can also help us achieve a healthier, more radiant appearance.
According to Susan M. Kleiner, R.D., Ph.D., a Seattle-based nutritionist, eating foods high in antioxidants is ideal. “Getting nutrients through food is the only way to receive them. In comparison to supplements, the body absorbs and assimilates them significantly better.”
Kleiner recommends eating three to five servings of vegetables and two to four servings of fruit each day, as recommended by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Guide Pyramid. Eat at least one citrus fruit for vitamin C, such as orange, tangerine, or grapefruit. To increase your intake of beta-carotene, eat at least two orange-yellow or leafy green vegetables every day.
Eat Right for Younger Looking Skin
Skin that seems younger is a result of eating healthfully. Vitamin C and beta-carotene intake from an orange and a raw carrot are more than double the RDA for both nutrients. Even if you eat a low-fat or no-fat diet, it can be difficult to get the required daily allowance of vitamin E because of its high cost.
Eat some nuts or seeds, says Dr. Kleiner, and don’t be afraid to include a few tablespoons of olive oil in your diet.
The formula below can be used to compute antioxidant nutrients including vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. In addition, it provides details on how and where to obtain these nutrients.
The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamin C is 60 mg. (70 milligrams of vitamin C in 1/2 cup orange juice). Vitamin C-rich foods include citrus fruits and liquids, as well as tomatoes. Increase your fiber intake by eating entire fruit. Juice in glass bottles and fluid that has been heat-pasteurized should be avoided. Heat and light break down vitamin C.
Vitamin E: 8 mg for women and 10 mg for males are the recommended daily allowances (one tablespoon of canola oil has 9 mg of vitamin E). You may get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids from a wide variety of foods, but the best sources include cold-water fish such as salmon, tuna, halibut, and trout, as well as nuts, seeds, and their oils. Instead of butter or margarine, cook with canola, olive, or another type of vegetable oil.
There is no RDA for beta-carotene. Dr. Kleiner, on the other hand, advises 5-6 mg. Carrots have 12 milligrams of potassium per cup. Leafy greens like broccoli, as well as orange and yellow vegetables, are excellent sources of carotenoids. Prepackaged, washed, and peeled baby carrots are a healthier alternative to potato chips or popcorn as an evening snack while watching television.
It is better to ‘feed’ your skin a healthy, antioxidant-rich food in addition to over-the-counter anti-oxidant cosmetics because they do not have enough to be effective on their own.
