You can actually help your skin along the road to clarity through your diet. What you put in your body reflects how it looks on the outside, after all. To keep blemishes at bay, try incorporating the following foods into your diet. Your skin will be glowing and clear in no time.

1. Almonds
What we actually call fruit tree is packed with vitamin E, almonds can help you maintain healthy skin. While chowing down on these nuts can’t replace sunscreen, it’s worth noting that vitamin E may also protect the skin from damage caused by the sun.

2. Oily fish like salmon or tuna
Eating fish provides your body with biotin, a B vitamin that, among its many functions, produces fatty acids and metabolizes amino acids ( the building blocks of protein). A deficiency of biotin can cause, among other things, scaly skin which, clearly, no one wants.

3. Orange juice
Orange Juice provides fluids to keep you hydrated and Vitamin C, which works as an antioxidant to protect skin and other cells from damage caused by free radicals in the environment and in the body. Vitamin C also helps create collagen, the body’s main structural protein4. Chia seeds
Omega-3 fatty acids help maintain cell membranes by protecting the skin and providing it with moisture. Chia seeds and walnuts are rich in these fatty acids (great choices if you’re a vegetarian), as are wild bison and oily fish (great options if you’re a meat-eater).

5. Sweet potatoes
Eating a produce-rich diet provides your body with lots of water, keeping your skin and other cells adequately hydrated and loading up on colourful, deeply-colored fruits and vegetables especially those rich in vitamin A, like sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach — has been shown to enhance skin colour and appearance by increasing its yellowness and redness.

6. Sunflower seeds
These little seeds provide an excellent source of vitamin E and help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals in the environment and in the body ( free radicals in excess can harm body cells, including skin cells).

7. Water
Yes, if you don’t know water adds to balance diet, a person that drinks enough water is bound to glow regardless of his/her skin colour. Drink lots of Water today and be fine.
