Your diet affects your skin more than you think. Diets full of sugar and fatty, processed foods can lead to breakouts, aging, and problematic skin. A simple, unprocessed diet full of whole foods is just the thing your body needs to detoxify your skin and keep it looking young and fresh.
Fruits and vegetables are the key ingredients to any healthy diet, however, we have touched on some other important food groups that your skin will love!
Water: Stay hydrated! Do not drink sugary or an excess of caffeinated beverages.
Omega 3: High quality fats such as almonds, fish, avocados, coconut oil and olive oil.
