Tanning diet, the foods that hydrate for perfect skin

By giving space to foods rich in water and antioxidants, it is possible to show off a uniform tan and protect the skin

When the warm season arrives and the time to dedicate oneself to the tintarella, it is opportune also to consider the feeding. Those who want to show off a perfectly tanned skin cannot ignore the attention to what they put on their plate. Dietary patterns play a crucial role when it comes to protecting the skin from UV rays. Remembering it was Dr. Joseph S. Takahashi, an expert in neuroscience at the University of Texas.

His work on this topic was summarized in a 2017 study, thanks to which he made known the existence of an enzyme that, capable of intervening against the damage caused to the skin by the sun's rays, has a daily summary that can be strongly compromised by the times when food is taken.

Given this necessary premise, it is appropriate to find out which foods are worth introducing into a regular dietary plan aimed at optimizing the quality of the tan also through hydration, which is essential for preparing our skin to absorb the sun's rays.

In the foreground we find blueberries, characterized by the presence of powerful antioxidants capable of fighting free radicals, the action of which can be enhanced following prolonged exposure to the sun. Blueberries – to make the most of their benefits, it is advisable to move towards wild ones – are also rich in vitamin C, very useful for preventing the formation of wrinkles after a day spent in the sun.

We talked about the importance of hydration for a satisfying tan: watermelon is precious in this regard, known for being among the summer fruits with the highest water content. Its benefits for those who want to show off a perfect tan do not end here! Not to be forgotten is its richness in lycopene, an acyclic isomer hydrocarbon which, as highlighted by a 2012 study published in the pages of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, allows you to appreciate a portentous photoprotection faster than those related to use of topical sunscreens.

How not to mention dried fruit, which with its omega 3 fats helps prevent inflammation of the skin? Noteworthy is also the importance of carrots which, by virtue of their beta-carotene content, represent another very valid reference point when it comes to photoprotection.

We conclude with a nod to green tea which, as demonstrated by several studies on animal models, thanks to its content of epigallocatechin gallate is able to prevent problems concerning the skin excessively exposed to UVA rays. There is nothing to say: the foods to be included in your diet to show off a uniform tan and protect your skin are different and tasty. In addition, they can be taken in various ways, adding them to a salad or a fruit salad or making them protagonists of a smoothie. Obviously, before starting to introduce them in the diet, it is advisable to consult your doctor.
