Red Bell Pepper. Everyone thinks citrus fruits corner the market on vitamin C but one red pepper has 2 to 3 times more vitamin C than an orange. Vitamin C keeps skin healthy because it helps protect us from the sun (which also means it’s an anti-ager) and it’s a key nutrient in collagen production, which keeps skin firm.
Avocado. This unsaturated, heart-healthy fat helps keep skin moist and it contains vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, which protects skin from aging.
Shrimp. This iron-rich protein helps us grow thick, shiny hair and strong nails while the zinc in shrimp is great for our skin.
Sweet Potato. Beta-carotene is important for new skin cell turnover and these have a ton.
Kale. This vegetable powerhouse is packed with both beta-carotene and vitamin C.
Wild Salmon. This fish is loaded with omega-3 fats, which keep toxins out of cells and allow good ingredients in.
Wheat Germ. An excellent source of vitamin E and Zinc for its versatility, suggest sprinkling some on yogurt or oatmeal in the morning. Mix wheat germ and whole wheat flour to bread chicken cutlets.
