5 Foods to Boost Healthy Skin from Within
You are what you eat… More like your skin shows what you eat.
Let’s face it; we have no choice but to accept our skin type, whether it’s a dry, oily or combination type. If we were to have a choice, of course we would opt for a non-problematic skin from the beginning, but we can’t. What we can do is to make the most of what we have. And most of the time, the food that we consume also contributed to our skin condition. So make sure to only eat skin-friendly foods! Here are some of them, which we love to implement it into our daily menu plans.
Cucumber is well known for its benefits for skin, whether it’s for consumption or application. It contains high amount of water, rich in vitamin A, C, and K, mineral, omega-3 fatty acid, and fiber.
