Our skin begins to lose its natural suppleness as we get older. There are products, skin treatments, and home remedies for skin tightening that you can try to preserve the youthful appearance of your skin. But did you know that you can also “eat” some specific foods to help enhance skin firmness?
The most studied and proven foods to help with skin tightening comes from foods with Carotenoids! Carotenoids are plant pigments responsible for bright red, yellow and orange hues in many fruits and vegetables. By protecting the skin against damaging free radicals, carotenoids also prevent the degradation of your skin’s firmness. At the same time, they protect the skin against UV radiation, enhancing skin's resistance and support healing processes.
When consuming these skin boosting foods, you should aim to eat at least two portions every day. This will ensure that you get enough of the skin firming phytochemicals found in these fruits and vegetables. In addition, you will be getting Vitamin C, which will also make your skin more "glowy".
Below is a list of fruits and veggies that will make you your skin feel firmer and look younger.
The Best Skin Firming Fruits: Watermelon, Honeydew Melon, Mango, Tomatoes, Cantaloupe, Oranges, and other Citrus Fruits.
The Best Skin Firming Vegetables: Yellow and Orange Bell Peppers, Carrots, Squash, Leafy Greens, Broccoli, Sweet Potatoes, and Spinach.
