┬áTruly fabulous skin — glowing, vibrant, and, yes, younger-looking skin? Make sure you’re putting foods for healthy skin on your plate.

“Everything you eat becomes a part of not only your inner being, but the outer fabric of your body as well. The healthier the foods are that you consume, the better your skin will look,” says Samantha Heller, MS, RD, a clinical nutritionist at NYU Medical Center in New York City.

The reverse is true as well, Heller tells WebMD. The less attention we pay to what goes in our mouth, the more problems we may see cropping up with our skin.

“You could have sallow skin, dry skin, older-looking skin. It’s not going to happen overnight, but starve your skin long enough, and it’s going to show,” she says.

What’s more, some health experts believe that when your diet is missing certain foods for healthy skin, other, even more serious skin problems can result.
