Your skin protects your body, but that’s not all. It’s the face you present to the world. When healthy, it’s a source of beauty.

Want good skin? Watch your diet. Higher intakes of vitamin C and a lower intake of fats and carbohydrates are associated with better appearance as your skin ages.

Some studies suggest that to avoid breakouts, go for complex carbohydrates (like whole grains and pasta) and healthy protein. Dairy products are also known to cause acne flares.
