Healthy Summer Skin

We expect a really hot summer after the big disappointment last year and it already looks promising. Of course we all head to the beach, park or lido to catch every bit of the sunlight. But don’t forget that nothing ages the skin more than too much sun. Of course you look great tanned but just follow some simple rules like avoiding the sun about noon and early afternoon and choose shadowy spots and always use a sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher and wear a hat with a brim to protect the hair, scalp and face when directly exposed to the sun. To help your skin you should drink and eat well. Drinking loads of water is essential to keep your skin hydrated. Salmon, trout and tuna strengthen the blood and give your skin a fresh, soft look. The most nourishing varieties for the skin are apples, figs, berry fruits, apricots, Asian pears, Chinese red and black dates, papayas, adzuki beans, avocados, bean sprouts, broccoli and other dark green vegetables, carrots, celery, chickpeas, chicory, cucumbers, dandelion flowers, garlic, ginger, green beans, leeks, lentils, black beans, mung beans, onions, pumpkins, radishes, seaweed, spinach, sweet potatoes, water chestnut, watercress and squash. Plenty to choose from. Also concentrate on black sesame seeds, brown rice, millet, sunflower seeds, whole grains, oats, walnuts and Brazil nuts. Yoghurt with active bacterial cultures combats the free radicals responsible for skin ageing.Soya and other soy-based foods help plump and firm skin. Eat well to support your skin during hot summer days.
