OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS
Omega-3s and omega-6s are good fats that help make up your skin’s natural oil barrier, keeping away dryness and blemishes. Essential fatty acids like these leave your skin smoother and younger looking. Look for them in olive and canola oils, flaxseeds, walnuts and cold-water fish, like salmon, sardines and mackerel.
Your body makes a key antioxidant called Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10. But as you get older, you make less of it. It’s involved in making energy and helping your cells work and may help soften wrinkles and other signs of aging. You can consume CoQ10 via fish, like salmon and tuna, or with poultry and whole grains.
It’s not a ‘food,’ technically, but water is vital when it comes to skin health because it flushes toxins out of your body, delivers nutrients to your cells, and keeps your organs functioning. It also helps your cells stay plump and full, which makes your skin look firmer and clearer.
