It's said so much that you’re probably tired of hearing it, but watching what you eat really is the key to health — including healthy skin. The issue is figuring out exactly what that means; there is so much conflicting advice floating around, so many buzzwords and, of course, so many different ways to be healthy. If looking younger is your goal, here’s a good place to start.
The biggest change you can make to boost your healthy skin? Cut your sugar intake. Sugar contributes to the production of advanced glycation end products, or AGEs, which, well, age you! They lead to wrinkles and diminished levels of collagen, a compound which keeps skin looking healthy.
Another good course of action, especially if sugar is hard to part with, is increasing your intake of omega-3s. Omega- 3s are healthy fats that help prevent your skin from looking sallow, and they can be found in foods like fish, nuts and certain seeds.
