We’ve all heard the saying, “you are what you eat”, well there is some truth to that! You already know that filling your diet with power foods—like dark leafy greens and citrus—can help beat chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes. The food you eat—from wrinkle-fighting antioxidants in fruits and vegetables to hydrating healthy fats in fish—may matter to your skin almost as much as it does to your waistline. Did you know that certain foods can also work wonders on your skin? There’s a growing body of research showing that diet really does affect your complexion. What you eat can affect your hormone balance, cause acne, and create or lessen inflammation, which is associated with skin aging.
