If there’s one way to sum up how you can make yourself a better person when it comes to food, there’s one line for that: You are what you eat. This line never ceases to turn heads especially with how common processed and fast food is in our system. It’s not surprising since we live in a highly urbanized area with so little time and resource to dedicate on growing fresh produce. At times, it can be very difficult to understand just how far the food we eat can do damage to your bodies.
You might not notice it now but constantly chowing down on some of our comfort food spells a lot of trouble for our skin. How about holding back on some sweets or skip on the usual fast food binge for the weekend? You’ll be more than happy to notice instant results once you’ve done so. For now, let’s see what we can do to help make our skin healthier and more glowing.
- This particular fruit is rich in fat and a good source of biotin. Biotin helps in keeping your skin nourished and avoids it from going brittle.

- Green Tea. While not really something you’d eat, green tea has always been a staple on the healthy drink you should get. Green tea is brimming with nutrients that aid in keeping your skin look younger.
- Eggs might be a staple on your breakfast plate but don’t hold back on them. Eggs have high values of protein which help your skin in protecting itself from going dry as well as repairing cells that were damaged by free radicals.
