To keep your skin looking young and radiant, you can do more than apply sunscreen daily; you can eat fat. Let me clarify. I'm not talking about eating foods high in saturated fat, like ice cream or fried chicken. I'm talking about healthy fats, such as essential fatty acids (omega-3s and omega-6s) and healthy oils. These types of fat promote healthy skin since they are responsible for creating healthy cell membranes and keeping your skin lubricated.
So make sure to include salmon, fish oil, nuts such as walnuts, and flaxseeds in your diet. Also include healthy oils such as canola and olive. Look for ones labeled cold pressed, expeller processed, or extra virgin since these are less processed.
Fit's Tips: Since healthy oils can be high in calories, try to limit your intake to two tablespoons a day.
