You should pay more attention to the food you eat if you want a radiant skin.

Below are 11 foods you should eat for a radiant skin

1. Olive oil

According to a 2012 study published in PLOS ONE, higher consumption of olive oil is linked with fewer signs of aging. Olive oil contains polyphenols which help fight damaging free radicals.

2. Tomatoes

A 2008 British study found that eating tomato daily offers the skin more protection from sunburn. Tomatoes contain lycopene which improves the skin’s natural SPF.

3. Dark chocolate

People who consume dark chocolate regularly are less likely to experience skin roughness and scaliness. Dark chocolates are rich in flavanols which help hydrate the skin and improve circulation.

4. Fish

Fish consumption has been linked to a radiant skin because fish (especially fatty fish) are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which is anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is the root cause of acne.

5. Green tea

A 2011 study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that consuming green tea makes the skin smooth and more elastic. This is because green tea contains catechins which boost blood flow and oxygen to the skin.

6. Walnuts

Walnuts will help give you a radiant skin because they are rich in omega-3 fatty acid.

7. Water

Consuming enough water is important if you want a radiant skin because water makes the skin appear more plump and less wrinkled.

8. Oysters

Zinc is an important nutrient that plays a key role in the growth and function of skin cells. Oysters are rich in zinc.

9. Yellow bell peppers

A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that people who ate yellow bell peppers had fewer wrinkles. Yellow bell peppers contain antioxidants that fight free radicals.

10. Eggs

Eggs will help give you a radiant skin because they are rich in protein and have less fat. Foods that contain too much fat are associated with aging skin.

11. Carrots

A 2011 British study found that people who eat carrots have a radiant skin. This is because carrots are rich in carotenoid.
