Foods That Protect Your Skin
Certified Nutrition Therapist Maria Zilka explained that there are foods that can help be part of your defense from the damaging effects of too much summer sun. There are several nutrients that are known to play a role in the proper growth and immunity of the skin, and these include antioxidants, essential fatty acids (EFAs), vitamins and minerals derived from a whole food diet. These include:
• Avocados - A good source of biotin, avocados help to prevent dry skin and brittle hair and nails. When applied topically, they can hydrate parched skin.
