While there’s no simple formula guaranteed to deliver clear, frustration-free skin, powerhouse beauty nutrients found in our favorite whole foods can help reduce blemishes and keep skin looking youthful and radiant at any age.

“It’s not about specific foods,” says Jolene Hart, a health coach certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, and author of Eat Pretty: Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out. “It’s more about the approach.”

The approach, Hart says, is in choosing the best fresh foods that pamper our bodies while providing major skin benefits. This means targeting nutrient-dense foods known for their ability to build collagen and elastin (which keep skin firm and supple), reduce inflammation, and protect against skin-damaging free radicals caused by ultraviolet (UV) exposure, air pollution and everyday toxin buildup.

Thankfully, these beauty foods are likely already familiar—think nuts, leafy greens, and colorful fruits and veggies. Hart suggests looking at the foods you already love and boosting their potential by incorporating more anti-inflammatory spices such as cayenne, cinnamon and turmeric; using powerful preparation techniques such as fermenting and steaming; and taking a few high-quality supplements such as probiotics and fish oils to deliver deeper skin- and body-healing benefits.



“Get in touch with how your body feels before and after eating,” Hart says. “Does this make me feel good? Is this meal pampering me?”

If your answer is yes, then those foods are likely nourishing you from the inside out, and your skin will be the ultimate sign of it.
