Water and Green Tea
Hydratation is the key of everything. Drink 1 liter of water everyday. Flat not sparkling as it contains a lot of salt.
Considering tea, we recommend humble green tea. It’s full of antioxidants and studies have shown that this does minimize the UV treatment on skin. The more you drink, the higher your levels are. There is evidence of lower skin cancer rates in countries like Japan, where people have higher levels of green tea in their skin.

Avocados
Rich in vitamins A, D and E, avocados are one of those wonder foods that do everything. The avocado is rich in good fats, phytonutrients and full of Vitamin E for hydration. It gets to the skin cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the skin.  Avocado oil has also been proven to increase collagen levels. Avocado oil is close in composition to the natural oils in our skin and the essential fatty acids contained are great for sunburn or to soothe skin.

Salmon
New research suggests that twice-weekly consumption of salmon could protect against skin cancer. The high levels of omega-3 fat found in this oily fish are also great for overall skin health: Salmon reduces inflammation as opposed to meat, which increases it.

Nuts
Whether it’s an almond, pine nut, hazelnut or walnut, contains a big dose of vitamin E, selenium, an antioxidant with a high mineral count), omega-3 fats and zinc, which amps up your collagen levels to keep skin taut and protect skin against cell damage. Nuts are also high in fiber, which keeps the colon moving. The better the colon is working, the less pressure our skin is going to be to release waste, which clogs it.

Berries family
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or goji berries, they’re all delicious! “You can’t go wrong with a berry, but the darker the better. Darker berries contain more antioxidants, which attack free radicals produced by things like UV damage and pollution, and they also load you up on healthy vitamin C to reboot the collagen supply.

Pumpkin Seeds
As with berries and nuts, there’s a variety to choose from, and all — flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds — have skin-boosting properties. They’re bursting with the aforementioned vitamin E and selenium and will help achieve a radiant complexion. Seeds are loaded up with omegas, protein and really powerful antioxidants. Mix up a few of your favorite seeds into a container to sprinkle over salads, soups and any dish you can.

Our last tip is to laugh a lot. Laughing is the best beauty product!
