The Better-Skin Diet

Skincare is clutch, but the key to a healthy complexion starts with what’s on your plate. The right foods can improve skin’s appearance, prevent wrinkles, and protect against sun damage.

Toss a half-cup of these peppers into your next stir-fry or salad and you’ll score nearly half of the vitamin C you need in a day. Like other antioxidants, the nutrient protects against skin-damaging free radicals. The body also uses vitamin C to produce collagen, the protein that gives skin its firmness. Don’t like peppers? Opt for other C-rich foods, like papayas, strawberries, kiwi, and kale.
