As they say, beauty is only seen on the surface, although the skin appears to be the body’s least understood organ.
Although our skin shields us from outside elements that could endanger our health, it still requires our protection and maintenance to remain youthful and attractive.
Skin care, in my opinion, starts on the inside. Acne sufferers will tell you that some meals cause outbreaks practically immediately, while others clean up your skin in a few days.
It’s a long-standing custom in cultures such as the Chinese and some Cushitic societies to balance the foods that contribute to glowing skin.
Science has since explained what elements in certain foods work to make your skin clear, radiant and wrinkle free. Below are some of the foods that will make your skin look and feel younger, but remember that for best results you will have to take these foods regularly.
- Red Wine
Most people enjoy at least a glass of wine with food once a day. You may not have known this but you have been doing your skin a great service by taking red wine.
Studies show that resveratrol, which is found in the skin of grapes, has numerous anti-aging benefits, including for your skin.
In my adulthood I find myself cooking pumpkin for my daughter and husband all the time, I hope they like it.
Pumpkin has many benefits to the body. It contains Beta-carotene, vitamins A, E and C that help to slow down the ageing process and prevent wrinkles.
That means your skin will look younger as you grow older.

- Dark Chocolate
Chocolate has many benefits for the body. While over-eating chocolate will make you add weight, eating just the right amount will provide you with all the health benefits that chocolate gives.
Dark chocolate is especially more beneficial than white chocolate.
Eat quality dark chocolate regularly to preserve the youthfulness of your skin. Chocolate is rich in flavanols, which have been found to protect the skin from harmful UV radiation and even reverse age-related memory decline.
- Olive oil
Olive oil is a great, natural oil that has many health benefits. It is a powerful antioxidant and you can consume it in an uncooked form or apply it topically on your skin, to quickly see great results.
Consuming these foods regularly will assure you the best results over time. All the best in your health journey.
