Help make a lasting impact on your skin.

Skin is how our bodies talk to us and if we don’t pay close attention to what we put into our bodies, any message we get will no doubt be in red.

So how do we make sure the gut-skin communication is flawless?

Here are 10 of the best foods to help make zits and blemishes a thing of the past.

1. Kale

Kale outshines the other members of the cabbage family because it’s the most nutrient dense.

2. Sweet potatoes

Retinopathy, a vitamin A derivative, is ideal for fighting acne and warding off wrinkles. There are hundreds of retinol creams and serums on the market that promise to make your acne disappear, but for those who are under age 30, this strong ingredient may be too harsh for the skin. So, eat it instead! Or at least, the original form.

3. Pumpkin

Loaded with fruit enzymes, zinc, and alpha hydroxy acids, pumpkin can soften skin and restore pH balance. It’s why you also find it in many masks and exfoliating products.

4. Berries

Strawberries, cherries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries — don’t let their size fool you! These babies are bursting with vitamin C and antioxidants, which can also be found in bell peppers, kiwi, and broccoli.

Having vitamin C circulating in your blood is a powerful weapon against blotchy skin, while the antioxidants from the berries act like a combo attack against those pesky dark spots, stopping them from ever forming in the first place.

5. Legumes

What do chickpeas, kidney beans, lentils, and peanuts all have in common? These legumes are low-glycemic, so they’re associated with more consistent blood sugar levels and fewer acne flare-ups.

6. Lemon

Fresh lemon juice works as a natural astringent, which is why it makes waves for tightening sagging skin and blurring blemishes.

However, using it as a topical treatment isn’t recommended.

7. Papaya

Papayas contain a digestive enzyme called papain. On your skin’s surface, papain is powerful enough to:

.exfoliate dead skin cells

.unclog pores

.fade acne scars

.hydrate skin

.prevent any future breakouts.

For the inside, this exotic fruit does wonders too.

8. Quinoa

A cup of cooked quinoa has 17 to 27 grams of fiber, so you’ll experience less constipation. Pooping regularly eliminates toxins from your body, resulting in clearer skin and fewer dark spots.

9. Salmon

with the skin is the best source for omega-3 fatty acids, but sardines, mackerel, and anchovies are also excellent choices.

Omega-3s protect your skin against sun damage, reducing your risk for developing skin cancer and brown spots brought on by prolonged periods of sun exposure.

10. Cauliflower

Vibrant fruits and vegetables are associated with greater health benefits, but don’t underestimate cauliflower.

This cruciferous veggie is packed with a powerful amino acid called histidine. Too much sunlight can make existing dark spots worse, but histidine prevents those harmful UV rays from wreaking havoc on your skin.

Number 6 (lemon)

i hope you find this helpful.
