Eat what you are Skin is roughly 70 percent water, 25 percent protein, and two percent lipids/fats, says Earle. So to support your skin, trade in caffeine and alcohol for lots of plain water (eight glasses a day) or fresh herb and spice teas. Eat foods rich in protein and essential fatty acids (oily fish such as tuna, salmon, and mackerel, as well as eggs, olive oil, yogurt, nuts, seeds, and dark green vegetables). And steer clear of processed foods and excess sugar, which can cause inflammation and ultimately lead to cell damage, wrinkling, and sagging.
