1. Tomatoes: repair sun damage

They contain the antioxidant lycopene which helps to fight skin-ageing free radicals.

2. Flaxseed: reduce skin irritation

Flaxseed is known to boast anti-inflammatory properties which makes it good for minimising skin redness and irritation, and tissue inflammation.

3. Chia seeds: maintain skin suppleness

These powerful little seeds have Omega 3 essential fatty acids that are said to hydrate skin and keep wrinkles away.

4. Kale: boost collagen production
