While we would never advocate skipping your sunscreen, we are pretty excited about some face-saving research focused on certain fruits and vegetables that are so loaded with antioxidants that they may actually help repair skin cells—deliciously! Your skin is vulnerable to oxygen damage (from those nasty free radicals you hear so much about) because it’s constantly exposed to air, sun, and pollution. Antioxidant-packed produce can help prevent damaging changes to skin by protecting the fat in your skin’s cells. So grab a basket and get thee to a farmer’s market! Here’s your shopping list:
|Oranges||Red bell peppers|
As you’ll notice, most of the foods on this list get their healthy-skin-promoting bounty from the dark or bright pigment that gives them such vibrant color. Happy eating!
