“You already know that filling your diet with power foods—like dark leafy greens, dark chocolate, citrus—can help beat chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes. But 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,” says Jessica Wu, MD, a dermatologist in Los Angeles and author of Feed Your Face. “What you eat can affect your hormone balance, cause acne, and create or lessen inflammation, which is associated with skin aging.”
In fact, what you eat can be as important as the serums and creams you apply on your skin, says Dr. Wu. That’s why we rounded up 25 foods that are good for you—and fantastic for your skin. Here’s to you, gorgeous!

“The foods you eat should be packed with vitamins and minerals. When most of the foods you eat are nutritionally rich foods, your skin will be its healthiest and most beautiful! This is far from the magic bullet we all want in our fast paced lives; healthy eating requires real commitment.
What are nutritionally rich foods? Every time we buy manufactured food there’s nutritional information on the labels. In fact, we’re bombarded with nutritional information. Even junk foods list vitamin content. It’s confusing and so I use my common sense to figure out what foods are packed with vitamins and minerals. I recommend that the majority of what you eat be high nutrition foods including: ..
The Dermatologist’s Diet for Natural Skin Health
* Eat mostly vegetables, fruits and grains- organic or naturally farmed.
* Limit meats, fish, dairy and eggs-use them as an embellishment to your meal, not the main portion of what you eat-and be sure they’re from naturally farmed animals
* Use virgin olive oil
* Consider processed foods as a treat, not your main source of calories and nutrition”

Most women (and some men) go to great lengths to make sure that their skin glows and they look attractive. However, beauty is skin deep and what you eat determines how you look. A diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins is considered good for your skin. But, if you are confused as to what food items you should eat, we give you a list of 10 foods that can make you more beautiful from within:
Sweet potatoes: They contain vitamin A which is anti-inflammatory and helps fight off acne-causing bacteria. It also has vitamin C which helps prevent acne and heals it if you already have it.
Pumpkin seeds: It is packed with zinc, an essential in the creation of new skin cells and an aid in protein synthesis and collagen formation. It controls the production of oil in the skin and adds colour and brightness to the complexion.
Apples: Vitamin C found in these fruit, helps to firm and tone the skin. It prevents free-radical damage, protects your skin cells and delays signs of ageing.
Beets: They are a great source of anthocyanins – a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation and slows down the ageing process and helps prevent wrinkles. Beetroot is also good for overall health.
Carrots: For the ultimate anti-ageing, wrinkle-fighting boost, add vegetables high in vitamin C like carrots in your diet which can protect and improve your skin. They are high in beta carotene which the body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A is one of the most important nutrients for healthy skin. You can also make these anti-ageing potions using veggies.
Strawberries: Mashed strawberries mixed with honey, avocados or yoghurt can bring a healthy radiance to the skin. But you can also use the juicy red fruit to whiten teeth. Strawberries contain malic acid, a natural whitening agent.
Lemons: Lemons are rich in vitamin C, which plays an important role in the synthesis of collagen in the body. For this reason, the regular use of lemons – both internally as part of the diet and externally on the skin – can help keep your skin healthy and free from scars. You could also use lemons for skin problems like acne, blackheads, etc.
Tomatoes: Tomatoes have an antioxidant called lycopene which acts as a sunscreen from within and has anti-ageing properties too. Tomatoes are acidic in nature and applying their pulp to the pimple causes the skin to dry and the pores of the skin in the region get tightened.
Spinach: Spinach is loaded with antioxidants which can help reduce the onset of wrinkles making it a good anti-ageing product. It also strengthens your skin tissue and has anti-inflammatory properties which helps flush out the toxins.
Amla: The extract of amla is rich in Vitamin A. This vitamin is essential in collagen production, a compound that keeps the skin looking young and elastic. Amla when consumed on an empty stomach has properties that slow down the degradation of collagen and helps the body produce more.

“…Mum & my family kept encouraging me.I asked the Lord to give me a sign that the rash would dissappear without leaving any scars.& God gave me a sign..this very preacher who I despised tweeted to me(he hadn’t tweeted to anyone before that.I checked).I wasn’t even writing to him.I just tagged him to another brother’s post.He tweeted to me several times(God spoke to me through him)& once my faith returned..he stopped tweeting to me.I don’t agree with many things he preaches but I love him(I stopped listening to him few months later but I am thankful for him & I will always pray for him..a lot)bcoz God used him mightily to restore me.Around that time God gave him a mighty revelation & his 2014 animated video is top notch!It was on many pages this easter.It’s how Yeshua took our sin,death,curse, attack & condemnation(but no1 gave him the credit)
…God healed me completely.Drs had suggested a few blood test & the results were excellent.My skin is clean,baby soft & blemish free like it used to be(you won’t even know that something was ever wrong-my profile picture is the proof).He restored me & it was His love,grace,mercy & faithfulness alone that saved a wretched like me.So I do not agree with the excuse worldliness gives.Like I fell in the wrong company.They forced me to do so.No!I chose to leave my Heavenly Father inspite of knowing what He has done for me.I not only sinned against Yeshua but I committed transgression & I was guilty of iniquity.I committed adultery & idolatry both.I blew up everything.So naturally I was an easy target for the devil bcoz I wasn’t under Yeshua’s blood.So when the Holy Spirit convicts u of your sins do not delay to repent & return…my brothers & sisters.Be obedient & stay under Yeshua’s blood. Our God a Holy God…He desires obedience and repentance.And He will never tolerate sin.Nothing I do will be ever enough for the cross & price Yeshua paid for me…””
