Skip to see the 9 best and worst foods for healthy skin now.
Turns out it's most likely what's on your plate that dictates how healthy your skin is, how young you look, and whether or not you have acne.
Sure genetics and other lifestyle and environmental factors play a part (ahem, the sun), but you'd be hard-pressed to find any esthetician, nutritionist or dermatologist that wouldn't consider food a major factor in deciding whether you have a clear, youthful-looking complexion.
Basically, whether you like it or not, what you feed your body dictates whether you have healthy skin or "problem" skin, so it's time to watch what you eat. Being food-conscious is officially not just important for helping you fit into your jeans.
There are proven ingredients that clear up even the worst of problem skin and ones that can help prevent your cells from aging prematurely.
To find out which foods do the most good and which wreak havoc on that face of yours, we went to Sinead Norenius, skin care esthetician and founder of the skin care line Beautisol. She gave us the rundown on what to load up on for healthy skin and what to skip. With the right foods, you can stop looking for the fountain of youth in a fancy face cream or cleanser and instead finally start to put the items that will really help in your grocery basket.
Now, see the foods you need for healthy skin.
