Top 10 Beauty Foods in Marie Claire Version

I already made a post  How to be Healthy and to look Beautiful:The Mediterranean Diet. And here is the list of top 10 Beauty Foods in Marie Claire version.

1. Wild salmon: A primo source for omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce skin inflammation, preventing redness, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. It’s also potent in antioxidants and vitamins B and D.

2. Low-fat yogurt: In one word, calcium. Good for strong bones, nails, and teeth. One cup of plain low-fat yogurt has more calcium than a glass of skim milk.

3. Oysters: The best source of zinc, period. Zinc helps build collagen, which supports the structure of skin and speeds up renewal and repair.

4. Blueberries: Full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories that prevent long-term cell damage.


5. Kiwifruit: Another good source of antioxidants, kiwis are also a great source of vitamin C and potassium, all which help prevent wrinkles.

6. Sweet potatoes: Chock-full of beta-carotene, something the body converts to vitamin A, which keeps skin smooth and is thought to protect against sun damage.

7. Spinach: This nutrient-dense leafy green is a great source of beta-carotene and lutein, which protects the eyes.

8. Tomatoes: Perhaps the only vegetable best eaten processed. Tomatoes are a major source of lycopene, a potent antioxidant also thought to protect against sunburn.


9. Walnuts: A key source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E. The omega-3s found in walnuts also help fight against skin ailments like psoriasis and eczema.

10. Dark chocolate: Full of antioxidants and nutrients, cocoa (choose chocolate with at least 60 percent cocoa) increases blood flow to the skin, which in turn boosts hydration, smoothness, and protection against sun exposure.

  1. Useful post! Also don’t forget that if you are not able to get all these foods into your daily diet (which might be possible) you should be taking a whole food vitamin ( I use One N’ Only by Pure Essence labs.)

    Also, another yogurt is great to combat yeast in women. You can use is as a douche as well.

    From all these foods I like only tomatoes and chocolate with milk or hazelnuts. I know that the dark chocolate is a better choice, but I can’t really eat smth that I don’t like.Anyway for the moment I gave up sweets. It’s great that you post from time to time articles like this about healthy food. They really make my day.

    Thank you for your useful comment, Robin! I guess one can always consult with the doctor if one needs help with the diet.

    I’m really glad that you enjoyed the post, Tavia!
    I like almost everything from the list and I am the biggest fan of salmon . I would eat it every day:) And I have the same problem with the chocolate. But now I eat one small piece of dark chocolate every day and I kind of start liking it:)
