Adjust your diet

Good nutrition is a fundamental building block of healthy skin, explains Leslie Baumann, MD, a Miami Beach dermatologist. Natural ingredients in whole foods help increase cell turnover and boost collagen, while sugar-packed foods can damage collagen. Try to include these foods into your diet:
  • Fish The fatty acids found in fish, especially salmon, help nourish skin and keep it plump.
  • Soy In one study, published in the European Journal of Nutrition, researchers found that a soy-based supplement improved skin's structure and firmness after just six months.
  • Fruits and veggies they're packed with antioxidants, which help to fight skin damage. Eat 5-8 servings a day, and focus on green, leafy veggies, and red and blue berries.
