Nutrients That Will Keep Your Skin Healthy And Beautiful

Beautiful GirlThere is a close connection between the things you put inside your body, and the way your body looks on the outside.

There are a number of important nutrients that can have a positive effect on your skin. Some of these include:

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is good for your whole body—one of its main roles is as an antioxidant. Antioxidants fight off free radicals in your body. Without antioxidants, free radicals can damage cells in your body and break down collagen. People who consume enough vitamin C may have fewer wrinkles and healthier skin that is less prone to dryness.

What should you add to your diet?

There are plenty of foods that are rich in vitamin C. Good options include oranges, strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, and many other fruits.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E protects your skin’s membranes and helps prevent damage from UV radiation.

What should you add to your diet?

Good sources of vitamin E include broccoli, almonds, and other nuts.


Beta-carotene is another anti-oxidant that keeps harmful toxins out of your body and out of your skin. It is also converted to vitamin A inside the body. Beta-carotene and vitamin A help keep your skin healthy, repair damage, and prevent further damage from UV radiation.

What should you add to your diet?

Beta-Carotene is found in yellow, orange, and green fruits and vegetables. Carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, and tomatoes are all good sources of beta-carotene.


Water isn’t necessarily classified as a nutrient, but it is crucial to keeping your skin healthy and beautiful. Drinking water throughout the day keeps your skin hydrated and flushes toxins out of your body before they can damage your skin. Drinking plenty of water can also keep you from drinking other sugary, acidic beverages that are worse for your health and your skin. In addition to drinking plenty of water, you can also get water in your diet by eating fruits and vegetables with a high water content. Melons, for example have substantial amounts of water.
