7. Nuts and seeds
Nuts and seeds are powerful foods that host numerous health benefits. They are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, B, and E, monounsaturated fats, minerals, and antioxidants. “Foods full of vitamin E … such as nuts help retain moisture and strengthen the skin barrier,” Rhonda Q. Klein, MD/MPH tells us.
Alpert also recommends eating nuts and seeds more often because of their nutritional density, ability to hydrate the skin, promoting its elasticity, helping to regenerate cells, and protection against pollutants and free radicals. That’s why almost all nutritionists are crazy about nuts and seeds.
Maybe it’s time to find out what’s your favorite type of nut and consume it as often as you can. To make things easier for you, almonds, in particular, have been proven to lower cholesterol.
