Besides skincare and makeup that can enhance your natural beauty, it’s still important to mind what you eat as well. If some of your beauty products aren’t giving you the results you want to achieve, maybe you have to change your diet, not your skincare regimen. Here, we give you a rundown of the healthy and radiant skin diet.

Antioxidants
Fruits and vegetables such as papayas, spinach, and pumpkins are rich in antioxidants. These powerful antioxidants help in protecting your skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Pumping up these in your skin will lessen the appearance of fatigue and boost your glow. You may also load up on another antioxidant rich source: Vitamin C!

What you should eat: Grapes, Blueberries, Dark Green veggies, sweet potatoes, tea, beans, fish, and orange vegetables. You could also try spices like cinnamon, curry, and paprika since they’re full of antioxidants, too.

Essential fatty acids
Fat can be good! Essential fatty acids are needed by our body to perform better because they maintain the cells health and key functions. These also prevent acne and makecellulites less visible.

What you should eat: Flax seeds, Legumes, and Soybeans. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish (particularly fatty fish such as mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna, and salmon) at least twice a week.


Mixed Nuts
If you’re looking for something to munch on, opt for mixed nuts instead of store-bought chips. Molly Morgan, Board Certified Sports Specialist Dietitian and author of The Skinny Rules suggests eating walnuts, which are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids (to lower inflammation and put the brakes on breakouts), and macadamia nuts since they’re “full of high quality oils and fatty acids that aid in skin repair and rejuvenation.”
