Your skin is the mirror of your habits with food
Unless you have been blessed with a flawless complexion, most of the times we all need a bit of help in making our skin looking more glowing, healthy and fresh
But it’s also true that it doesn’t really matter how many skincare products you apply to the outside, if you are not eating healthy food to nourish your skin from within.
First step first: give up all your sugar loaded sodas, junky food and processed snacks (yeah we know that those chocolate bars are sometimes a necessary ingredient to cheer up a day, but don’t exaggerate!)
Do you remember the famous quote “you are what you eat?” That was no joke! 🙂
Eating these 10 fruits will help your skin looking radiant from within and healthy: and then make it perfect with skincare products too
