Eat your way to a glowing skin

Time inevitably takes its toll on the skin. But there are ways to slow this process.

Time inevitably takes its toll on the skin. But there are ways to slow this process. One of the solutions to healthy, youthful skin is to follow a balanced diet that is rich in protective nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre, says Health24's DietDoc.

Take action:
Stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables, unrefined grains and cereals, low-fat milk, yoghurt and cheeses, lean meat, fish and eggs, and poly- or monounsaturated fats and oils to ensure that you get all the vitamins, minerals and omega fatty acids you need for overall good health and beautiful skin. Do regular exercise – at least three to four times a week – to improve the supply of blood and oxygen to your skin. And avoid exposure to the sun.
