These 11 Foods Could Help Your Skin Look So Good

What you eat has an impact on your body. I'm sure you've heard it before, but a well-balanced, healthy diet benefits your entire body, from your immune system to your cardiovascular and digestive systems. I'm not trying to be a broken record, but it's true.

However, we are still studying how your diet affects your skin and which foods are best for it. Some individuals believe that your food is the be-all and end-all of your skin's health, while others say it is simply a portion of the picture. So I enlisted the help of a few reputable specialists, including dermatologists, dietitians, and health coaches, to find out how your diet impacts your skin.

There is still much research to be done on the impact of nutrition on skin health, but it is undeniably important. "Nutrition has a huge impact on all regions of the body, including the skin," says Flourish Heights' creator and women's health nutritionist. Valerie Agyeman is a registered dietitian. "Skin texture, color, dryness, warmth, and general appearance changes are some of the earliest symptoms of nutrient insufficiency and other health issues. A well-balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs provides the skin with the resources it needs for growth and recuperation. To have healthy, nourished skin, you must support this process of growth and recuperation."

It's also worth noting that some skin conditions, such as acne and wrinkles, are dictated by heredity, so even the healthiest diet may not make a significant difference. Other skin diseases, such as hormonal acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea, may be more affected by gut health and food.

"Inflammation is at the root of many skin disorders, and we know that certain foods can increase inflammation while others can assist to reduce it. We also know that our DNA can interact with our diet and lifestyle choices to influence whether or not we develop illnesses to which we are predisposed "Dana McNaught, LDN, CNS, a clinical nutritionist and alumna of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, agrees.
