8 Beauty Foods for Healthy Skin From Dr. Susan Stuart
Want truly fabulous skin — glowing, vibrant and younger looking skin? Make sure you’re putting foods for healthy skin on your plate. Everything you eat becomes a part of not only your inner being, but the outer fabric of your body as well. The healthier the foods are that you consume, the better your skin will look, says Stuart. The reverse is true as well. The less attention we pay to what goes in our mouth, the more problems we may see cropping up with our skin.
“You could have sallow, dry and older-looking skin. It’s not going to happen overnight, but starve your skin long enough, and it’s going to show,” says Stuart. What’s more, some health experts believe that when your diet is missing certain foods for healthy skin, other, even more serious skin problems can result. Dr. Stuart points out that, “a number of conditions, such as acne, can cause you to suddenly break out. And some chronic skin conditions, such as eczema, may be linked to diet.”
