Foodstuff to take care of your skin in summer

Summer is synonymous of sun, beach and holidays. But, although we are waiting for it throughout the year, enjoying it to the fullest can have serious consequences for our skin. With high temperatures, we sweat much more which can cause our skin to become dry and dehydrated. Besides, we spend many more hours under the sun and with this over exposure burns and dreaded spots can appear. Surely you already have your pack of sun-creams and protectors ready to use, but just as important or more is that you take care of your skin from within. For this, it is essential what you eat.

By eating foods rich in vitamin C, which you will find in fruits such as peaches, apricots or red fruits, you will get a beneficial antioxidant effect, highly recommended to maintain the luminosity of your skin and avoid damage from free radicals from the sun. Vitamin C prevents the appearance of spots and increase firmness and decrease wrinkles.

Some fruits are especially recommended to achieve this antioxidant effect. ››

Beta-carotenes are responsible for its orange colour. These substances, precursors of vitamin A, are essential for the skin cellular renewal. Apricots also contain tannins, with astringent, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
