5 + 1 Christmas diet tips

Christmas is the time of year when we all want to look rejuvenated. Since beauty starts from within, let's see what we can do with our diet, to boost our health and the appearance of our skin.

  1. Walnuts: Walnuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin Ε. Omega-3 fatty acids have a natural anti-inflammatory effect, making the skin look more youthful and renewed. Add some walnuts to your breakfast or salads, or eat them as a snack during the day.
  2. Fresh peppers: One of the most basic mechanisms of aging is oxidative stress, through the production of free radicals in our body. Peppers are rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. These are the two basic vitamins that reduce oxidative stress, while beta-carotene boosts the secretion of melanin, which protects the skin from photoaging. Add some peppers to your salads.
  3. Pomegranate: One of the main antioxidants found in pomegranates is penicillagine, not found in other fruits, making this particular fruit unique. Peicillagine is a polyphenol that can reduce oxidative stress significantly if eaten in adequate quantities. Pomegranates also contain one of the most important ingredients for collagen production, vitamin C. Its advantage is that it can be eaten as it is, added to salads, or consumed as juice.
  4. Organic eggs: Eggs contain biotin, a vitamin that is necessary for healthy hair and nails, while recent studies have shown it can also protect the skin from signs of aging and dryness.
  5. Avocado: Avocados are a skin superfood, as they are rich in vitamin Ε, monounsaturated fats and folic acid. Due to their unsaturated fatty acid content, avocados boost the uptake of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A and antioxidants from other foods. Add it to salads, main meals and smoothies.
  6. Water: Water is one of the most important things in our diet, for our skin and our body as a whole. Drinking at least 6-8 glasses of water per day contributes to the removal of toxins from the body, as well as firming the skin, which is made up of 60-70% water.

Based on the above, we can conclude that your salad for lunch can be boosted by adding avocado, walnuts, pomegranate, peppers and egg or oily fish, to nourish your body and your skin.
