Make sure to drink plenty of water to help flush out your system and keep your skin clear. You probably already know that skin needs a lot of hydration, but you can’t do it solely through topical treatments. Try to drink 8 glasses of water a day consistently, and you should start seeing a difference.
Eating vitamin-rich foods like spinach, carrots, kale, papaya, honeydew melon and sweet potatoes can help keep your Vitamin A levels high - it’s vital for healthy, glowing skin. And Vitamin C doesn’t just keep colds away – it contributes to healthy skin too. So make sure to grab an orange, or add some lemon to your water when you can.
It’s good to steer clear of chocolate normally if you’re battling breakouts… but dark chocolate is the exception to the rule. It contains high levels of Omega-6 fatty acids that stimulate skin regeneration and hair growth. It's also good for bone health and can even help regulate metabolism. So having a square or two per day is actually a good idea.
