Eating the right foods can also improve the quality of your skin. Here’s what to add to your diet to improve the health of your skin.

1. Tomatoes
Eating any tomato-based foods such as sauce and tomato juice may help clear up acne. It’s suggested to include tomato-based foods in your diet between 3-5 times a week.

2. Green tea
This power drink is packed with antioxidants, which will help your skin look younger and healthier overall. Drinking 3-5 cups of green tea every day helps fights acne based on its ability to lower levels of an acne-producing hormone.

3. Berries
This low-profile berry was ranked number one in antioxidant activity by the U.S. Department of Agriculture compared to 40 common fruits and vegetables. Berries such as blueberries and cherries are loaded with antioxidants, which help your body fight off blemishes and protect you from premature aging.

4. Fish and seafood
Studies have shown that people who ate diets high in fish and seafood had moisturized skin and less skin wrinkling. That might be because the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and seafood slows down the wrinkling process. Not to mention, the vitamin D in salmon keeps your bones and teeth strong and healthy, too.

5. Brown rice
Ceramides, found in most skin products and foods such as brown rice, helps your skin maintain its moisture. When you eat naturally occurring ceramides, they get incorporated into the outer layer of your skin and help it maintain its hydration.

Incorporate these foods in your diet to make you glow from head to toe!
