Eat Your Way to Perfect Skin

Oily Fish
Salmon, mackerel, fresh tuna, and other oily fish are key to keeping your pores clear and skin moisturized and plump - thanks to their omega-3 fatty acids, which our bodies don’t create.

Blackberries
Blackberries help the body manufacture collagen, so munching on a handful will put you on the right path for smooth, supple skin. They are also high in antioxidants, which combat the signs of aging. 

Avocado
We all know that avocado keeps our cholesterol low and blood pressure steady. However, it turns out that its fat content and high counts of both vitamins C and E hydrate skin too!

Kiwi fruit
Kiwi fruit reduces wrinkles, helps rid us of dark circles, and contains phenolic compounds, which fight against irritations. 

Dark chocolate
Dark chocolate contains flavonoids, which, in simpler terms, means smooth skin and extra sun protection. 

Asparagus
Add asparagus to your dinner once a week and you’ll wave goodbye to skin dryness, chapping, inflammation, and flaking. Its vitamin B helps skin lock moisture in. (But it makes your pee smell.)

Pumpkin seeds
Pumpkin seeds are rich in all-important zinc, which helps to repair damaged skin. Just include a handful in your daily diet.

Oats
Packed with vitamin B. You can also make an exfoliating face scrub with oats and warm water: apply, wait for 10 minutes, then rinse it off. 

Watercress
It might not be your first culinary choice, but watercress is know for treating eczema and rashes, thanks to the heaps of vitamin C that it contains.

Millet
Carbs are vital for a healthy turn and, it seems, healthy skin. Swap mash or rice for millet (from health food shops) and watch your skin go from greying to glowing!

Eggs
Albumen (or egg white) launches a three-pronged attack on skin conditions. The protein tightens pores, reduces puffy eyes, and soothes irritated skin.

Strawberries
Strawberries contain ellagic acid, which is an antioxidant that protects skin against harmful UV rays.
