Here are the best nutritionist tips for a beautiful skin and complexion using food.

Antioxidants to minimize skin aging

First, to achieve this, you need to eat your share of fruits and vegetables. Why? Because they are rich in antioxidants!

Antioxidants will fight free radicals resulting from oxidative stress, which can lead to premature skin aging.

Beta-carotene for a warmer complexion

Did you know that certain compounds have the ability to change skin pigmentation?

In fact, beta-carotene found in certain orange-coloured fruits and vegetables, such as cantaloupe, papaya and carrots, has the potential to turn the skin orange almost like a tan.

To take full advantage of the properties of these foods, use cantaloupe, papaya, and carrots to concoct a special beta-carotene smoothie. Simply add some almond drink, a touch of honey, and vegetables in order to minimize its added sugar and calorie content.

However, if you don't have fresh vegetables at home, baby food is a great alternative.
