Updated: March 29, 2019 How to brighten your skin, fights wrinkles, and get you glowing; you can easily get lost in the beauty jungle. Beauty is dependent on the overall health of your body. In order for your skin to look attractive and vibrant you need to make healthy lifestyle choices, and a great place to start is with the foods you eat. Keep wrinkles at bay by reducing the amount of potentially damaging free radicals produced by your own skin cells by eating right. Try opting for some natural ways to get firmer skin, fill in those lines and get a youthful flush. It’s all in what you eat! Here are some foods to get started!


  1. Eat nuts: Snacking on a handful of almonds will give your skin some of the good fats it needs to remain clear and luminous. Nuts in general are high in vitamin B complex, which help with not only skin cell restoration but also hair growth and dry skin. It gives your skin a more youthful appearance and will in turn help fight the early signs of aging. So for your afternoon snack, try a handful of unsalted, natural almonds-just don’t go overboard because it’s easy to overindulge!
  2. Eat cheese: Make a slice or two of hard cheese a part of your diet. Cheese helps to prevent bacteria from growing in the mouth and prevents cavities. Choose between Swiss, Cheddar or Gouda. It is high in calcium and helps to keep your smile white and your teeth cavity-free.
  3. Eat blackberries and blueberries: These blackberries look similar to raspberries and blueberries are little balls. These are two of nature’s most potent anti-aging foods. They help keep the skin's elasticity, strengthen the gums, and contribute to the health of your eyes. It also frees you from dry itchy patches.
  4. Eat avocado: These contain foliate which helps blood formation. It is also essential for oil generations. This rich fatty acid is high in all the fats your body needs, so it’s OK to indulge. You put in on your face in mask form which does wonders for your skin, so why not try actually eating it and see the benefits. Eaten in moderation, the monounsaturated fats you ingest will clear, soft and smooth skin.
  5. Eat oats: Very high in soluble fiber, and complex carbohydrates. It is also high in iron, manganese, phosphorus, calcium, Vitamins B and E, and silicon. Silicon is crucial for healthy skin to maintain collagen levels.
  6. Eat salmon and tuna: These are two powerhouse fish. They are loaded with those amazing Omega-3 fatty acids that do wonders for the body and they are also high in vitamin D. Vitamin D is great for skin because it helps keep it fresh and promote an overall healthy appearance. If you don't like fish, you can also buy fish oil capsules that you can take every morning.
  7. Eat green vegetables: Try asparagus, spinach and broccoli; asparagus known as sootmuli and musli to Indians are loaded with a natural source of Vitamin E-an essential for healthy skin. Vitamin E builds muscle and tissue, therefore keeping skin firm and helping to prevent wrinkles. Vitamin E also helps restore skin cells, so if you have a damaged area (a scratch, sore or even a scar) eating foods with high vitamin E content may help reduce or heal the problem area faster.
  8. Intensify the colors of foods you choose: dark and bright ones -- for carotenoids, fiber, flavonoids. Choose fruits and vegetables that have deep, intense colors:
    • Yellow, orange, green and red hues: eat papayas, mangoes, peaches, pineapple, strawberries, squash; yellow, green and red peppers; tomatoes (raw green tomatoes are poison), cantaloupe, apricots, carrots, sweet potatoes, beets, dark green leafy veggies, seaweed (including brown seaweed called ecklonia cava).
  9. Cut-out white foods, including:
    • Stop using white sugar, all white flour products, including "enriched" bread,
    • Avoid white rice, white potatoes; so, instead, eat whole grains and multigrain products, sweet potatoes.
    • Eliminate white shortenings and its cousin: yellow colored margarine, called "soft, buttery spread" which are not butter at all -- and are unhealthy.


  • Clean your skin daily (gently), also washing your face at night before you go to sleep.
  • Drink water or fresh or fresh-frozen 100% fruit juices, not canned juices or those containing a small percent of juices, which are mostly sugar, flavorings and water.
  • Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat to avoid skin damage from the sun.
  • Eat Mediterranean style: mushrooms, onions, garlic, olive oil, tomatoes, spices, avocados, fish, veggies, very lean meats, hard cheese.
  • Use good moisturizing lotion or cream--especially needed, if you have dry skin (winter is drying to skin, but warmer weather can help).
  • Eat complex carbohydrates: carrots, whole grain cereal, whole/multigrain bread, yams; enjoy fresh or dried fruits....


  • Avoid canned fruit juices because the heat used when they're canned breaks down substances in them, as with sweeteners. Thus they become harmful to the liver and other cells, which have to detoxify the blood, just as also happens with broken down artificial sweeteners.
  • Stop using processed foods, margarine, shortenings and other food products containing these which are disguised, also being called partially saturated oils because, the form of fats has been changed by processing, so becoming harmful.
  • Avoid high fructose sugar found in soft drinks and in juice drinks, which along with artificial sweeteners break down due to heat and during digestion into substances in them, which are quite unhealthful to the liver, in the broken forms.
    • Never drink sodas/soft drinks which are harmful, having lost their sweetness: containing aspartame, they have broken down in hot truck or warehouse and can cause serious illnesses, especially overtime.
  • You cannot undo sunburn or very deep tanning damage, except with skin-grafts !
    • Don't bake in the sun: Spend less time outdoors!
