Eat Yourself Young

At Barbizon of Akron, we believe in living a healthy lifestyle. It keeps you beautiful both inside and out! That's why we wrote this blog post on some super foods that will help you stay looking young, or make you look even younger!

Avocado- We love avocados, and love guacamole even more. The best part, they are full of Vitamin C & E and is perfect for elasticity of your skin which helps to slow down the aging process. It is also loaded with mono-saturated fat and Omega-3 fatty acid.

Green Tea- Green tea is dubbed much better for the skin than water. It is a natural remedy for acne and is very rich in antioxidants. If you are looking for a healthier alternative to coffee, then green tea is an excellent choice.

Oily Fish- Mackerel, salmon, sardines and fresh tuna are the fish you are looking for. These are healthy because they have a lot of omega-3 oils which are good for the skin. Omega-3 helps in the skin's elasticity and unclogs the pores.

Tomatoes- For cancer prevention and for maintaining good skin. They are a great source of lycopene which
is a natural ingredient for beautiful, healthy and youthful skin.

Walnuts- Not only are they perfect ingredients to your favorite brownies and pastries, they also help improve the smoothness of your skin because it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

All of these are great foods to incorporate into any diet! They have so many benefits, you'd be crazy not to at least try them out. Shine on, Barbizon of Akron!
