Foods That Support the Skin

A healthy diet provides the basic building blocks and nutrients to maintain healthy skin cells.

A well-balanced diet that nourishes the skin should include:
  • healthy fats, such as those found in avocados, nuts, salmon, and flaxseeds, for skin cell regeneration.
  • colorful fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin C, beta-carotene, and phytonutrients, to help give skin a healthy glow.
  • whole-grain breads and cereals that are rich in magnesium and B vitamins for regeneration of skin cells.
  • lots of water to help keep skin hydrated and plump.
In addition to eating the right foods, healthy skin requires limiting foods that can rob the skin of moisture, such as alcohol and caffeine, which is found in coffee, tea, chocolate, and certain sodas.

Best of all, eating a healthy diet not only helps people look better, but it also helps people feel better.
