Healthy eating is fundamental: in a world where we are always on the run and always cook less, and in a world with too much pollution, our skin may suffer and nutrition plays a crucial role in maintaining our skin healthy and young.

Our skin and also all our tissue need to be fed adequately and there are foods which help keep the skin healthy and in shape. Foods that thanks to their properties help us to maintain the elasticity and the beauty of our skin.


Let us see which are these foods and why they can help:

WALNUTS: with walnuts you stock up of fatty acids, essential nutrients for a beautiful skin, these protect you from the harmful effects of the sun and pollution and improve the elasticity of the tissue.
TO Eat 4 walnuts per day is a great solution because they are rich in vitamins, antioxidants and omega 3, but as with everything we must not abuse of it, because 100g walnuts contain 582 calories.

BLUEBERRIES: Stock up on blueberries and get “forever young” skin! Time ago it was said so, and they were not far from the scientific reality, the consumption of blueberries in fact tonifies the blood vessels, improves the micro-circulation and brings oxygen to the tissues favouring their regeneration. The blueberry is a fruit also recommended for those who have problems of circulation in the legs. Moreover it has only 45 calories per 100 g.

TOMATOES: The Tomato is rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that protects the cells from the action of free radicals and therefore protects your skin from ultraviolet rays and it is for this reason that the tomatoes are the perfect ally against wrinkles and spots/stains on the skin. Moreover they also contain very few calories (20 calories per 100 grams of pachino tomatoes), they are refreshing and there are lots of ways how to eat. As we already said tomatoes are the richest source of lycopene which is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect from the action of the free radicals. The Lycopene is not lost during the cooking of the tomato, which on the contrary is also present in the sauce, hence also cooked tomatoes preserve all their beneficial effects.
