Many will tell you that the skin is a pretty important part of appearance. That’s because it is. Such as it is, dry, flaky skin, visibly damaged skin, draws our attention. Glowing, angelic smoothness isn’t a prerequisite for beauty, but many people often strive after such a thing. We can’t claim we have all the secrets to eternal beauty, but we do know a thing or two about how to heal and maintain damaged and susceptible skin.


A lot of factors come into play when it comes to the skin, factors as disparate and environment and diet. Consequently, you’ve got to do more than just eat a few foods and avoid a few others to get that skin back the way it was. This said, it is also not very difficult to do so. You’ve got to keep at your diet, maintain a healthy lifestyle that’s not too hard to maintain, and take a few precautions. Following this, time will bring your skin back to its natural beauty.


Down below you will see a list of foods that help you obtain smoother and shinier skin, and another list of foods that damage your skin. Heed them both.


  1. Honey


Sweet, sweet honey is known a topical application for damaged skin but internal consumption of honey can also help the skin. Honey can fight off the bacteria that cause mouth sores. Its natural sweetness and soothing texture also make it an excellent choice for diabetics and those with sore throats. We highly recommend it to everyone.

  1. Blueberries


Perhaps not the cheapest item on the list, but blueberries do have many substances that benefit the skin, apart from tasting very good. They are rich in antioxidants, which combat free radicals in the body. This is particularly useful to delay the appearance of aging and blueberries are considered great anti aging agents. They are also rich in Vitamin C, another vital substance that the body needs.

  1. Oatmeal


Oatmeal is praised quite a bit, but isn’t praised enough, in our opinion. The fiber rich food should become a part of everyone’s daily diet because there really isn’t anyone who won’t benefit from it. From diabetics to weight watchers, oatmeal is a good suggestion for all.


Oatmeal keeps the body’s blood sugar levels in check and promotes healthy bowel movements. It is also rich in complex carbs, which takes for the body to break down. This means you feel fuller for longer, which will keep you off the snack shelf. But what you’re really eager to know is the effect it has on the skin. Some online proponents believe that oatmeal can soothe itching skin. Grind some oats, make a paste with a little water and apply to the affected area.


  1. Vitamin A


Vitamin A rich substances like carrots and oranges help heal dark brown spots on the skin. Some of the chemicals present in carrots are also present in skin treatment products.


Foods To Avoid


  1. Excess Salt


Too much salt in your food can cause your skin to puff up and appear tired. It is also believed that iodized salt can aggravate or trigger acne.


  1. Fast Food


Really, it goes without saying that fast food is bad for you and your skin. Far too much oil, excessive salt and copious amounts of fat make this an instant no-no for the skin. The obvious results of too much fast food is acne.


  1. Alcohol


Alcohol is a dehydrating substance. After you drink alcohol, your body loses water through the skin, which will prevent you from achieving that lovely moist skin that you were aiming for.


Of course, there are many more foods that have positive effects on the skin. We recommend looking for those that suit your taste and diet plan. The ones listed here are easily available and affordable so it’s a good place to start. Just remember to take care of your skin with some supplementary products as well.
