Eating well is a lifestyle that is reflected in your health, your energy and ... your skin! Modern women know very well that creams and serums can really work wonders, but a healthy diet, in addition to enhancing the antioxidant and anti-aging effects, guarantees a longer-term result.

So, eating certain specific foods periodically and in the right amount will ensure the recovery of the nutrients the body loses throughout the day (and over the years).

But what are the antioxidant foods that help improve body and skin health? There are so many, but we offer you the top 8.
As it is not always possible to buy all the ingredients on this list frequently, as some depend on the season and others are quite expensive, we have selected the best organic, vegan and natural food supplements that will ensure that you always get the right amount of nutrients!

Eat that is good for you!

In Asia, turmeric is used as a medicine in Ayurvedic treatment, to reduce headaches or stomach pains.

Warning: even if turmeric is a powerful food and helps a lot in body care, this is a spice that can mark the skin in direct contact, so the direct application of the powder on the skin is absolutely not recommended! Turmeric must be consumed in the food, as an ingredient for face creams or in pills.
Furthermore, during pregnancy, the use of turmeric requires great caution: excessive doses can cause gastric disorders and heartburn and studies are underway to verify possible negative effects in pregnancy. Talk to your doctor.
