We’ve all heard how important it is to eat out fruits and vegetables (for most of us, from nagging/loving parents). But did you know produce is also good for your skin? Indeed, studies have shown that eating enough fruits and veggies over eight weeks can lead to healthier skin, fight wrinkles and other signs of aging! (Om nom nom, “no way!”)
Seriously though, and it’s all thanks to the effect of lycopene (a plant nutrient especially high in tomatoes) and polyphenols (a type of plant nutrient found in grapes, peanuts, tea and even wine). These mighty food compounds may boost your arteries’ elasticity and your skin’s health.
