The Good Skin Diet

The latter can also cause a hormonal imbalance, leading to inflammation

The top pantry staples to get a glowing complexion, one bite (or sip) at a time.

Greek Yogurt, Blueberries, Walnuts & Honey

→  Greek yogurt
Probiotics do more than just heal your gut, says Whitney Bowe, NY-based dermatologist and author of The Beauty of Dirty Skin. They boost the production of ceramides (healthy fats in skin) and aid with recovery from exposure to UV rays.

→  Blueberries
Among berries, these have some of the highest amounts of antioxidants, giving protection against free-radical damage from pollution and the sun, says Joanna Vargas, facialist-to-the-stars and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection.

→  Walnuts
A high concentration of vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant) helps skin stay smooth and plump, says Bowe.

→  Honey
Natural sweeteners are much better for skin than artificial ones, says Bowe. The latter can also cause a hormonal imbalance, leading to inflammation. Honey is an especially sweet choice because it’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.

Kale, Avocado & Citrus Fruits

→  Kale
The darker the green, the better, says Bobbi Brown, founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and new lifestyle company Beauty Evolution. Kale is packed with vitamins (A, B, C and K) and beta carotene, which increases cell turnover, tightens and detoxifies.

→  Avocado
Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation, says Vargas. They also help create a strong, protective skin barrier.

→  Citrus fruits
Anything with vitamin C is very beneficial, says Brown. It reduces dark spots, helps with collagen production and brightens overall skin tone.

Cacao, Pumpkin & Matcha Tea

→  Pumpkin
The enzymes smooth out imperfections to deliver a luminous glow, says Vargas. Brown also loves that the seeds are a good source of zinc.

→  Cacao
Chocolate for your skin? Yes, really, as long as it’s dark (70% cacao or higher). The polyphenols repair damaged skin and restore elasticity, says Sylwia Wiesenberg, founder and visionary of DOPE Naturally and Tonique Fitness.

→  Matcha tea
It’s loaded with antioxidants, which “act like Pac-Man and chomp up free radicals from the environment before they can penetrate into skin,” says Bowe.

Got a Skin Problem? There's a Diet to Combat It

Fine lines & wrinkles?

Eat this:

Protein (fish, eggs, beef and chicken) has amino acids, which are the building blocks of collagen in the skin. Celery and cucumber both contain silica, which boosts moisture and elasticity.

Not that:

White bread, pasta, dried fruits—high-glycemic or sugar-laden foods can create inflammation.

Eat This, Not That

Look for your skin issue to determine how you might change your diet.
