There’s more to great skin than a good skincare routine. We’ve rounded up the foods that will get your skin glowing.

Blueberries

These delicious beauties pack a serious punch when it comes to their levels of antioxidants. Their age-defying abilities are also met with the combination of Vitamin C – an important factor in boosting the immune system and promoting the production of collagen, strengthening the skin’s capillaries.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are filled antioxidants called selenium. Working in collaboration with vitamins E and C, selenium has been known to protect against sun damage, age spots and is even a powerful weapon in the fight against skin cancer. The delicious fruit are also packed full of lycopene (the phytochemical that makes them red) which is thought to improve the skin’s antioxidant status.

Oysters
