Are you craving that natural healthy glow? It's more attainable than you think, and the proper diet can help. Samantha Heller, a clinical nutritionist at NYU Medical Center states "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, the better your skin will look." Below are some top contributors for better looking skin.

Strawberries

Strawberries contain a high level of vitamin C, which has been linked to anti-aging. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a study that showed people who eat foods that are rich in vitamin c have less wrinkles and less age-related dry skin than those who don't.

Green Tea

"Of all the antioxidants known to mankind, the components of green tea are the most potent." states Hasen Mukhter, PHD. More research shows that green tea is also linked to reducing your risk of skin cancer.

Pomegranates

The juice from this particular fruit overflows with antioxidants, helping with smooth lines and moisturizes the skin. One a day should do the trick.

Dark Chocolate
