What are the best foods for clear skin? -- is a question that shows you're approaching this in the right way. Your diet is very important for getting and maintaining clear skin. It's also important for good overall health. So by eating healthy you improve the health of your skin -- and also the health of your body.

First off, make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids -- preferably water. Substitute your consumption of soda -- with fruit juices.

You'll want to eat a good amount of foods rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants battle free radicals -- which are bad for your skin -- and your whole body.
Some foods rich in antioxidants are:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Berries
  • Cherries
  • Raisins
  • Prunes
  • Black grapes

You will need an adequate amount of iron for good skin health -- it reduces the dark circles around your eyes.
Some good sources of iron:

  • Eggs
  • Liver
  • Seafood
  • Red meats

You need fat in your diet -- but make sure it's the good fat. The good fat is omega 3 fatty acids.
These foods contain the omega 3 fatty acids in good amounts:

  • Salmon
  • Walnuts
  • Sardines
  • Flaxseed oils

Don't forget foods rich in flavonoids -- they give your skin that healthy glow.
Flavonoid rich foods:

  • Spinach
  • Lettuce
  • Citrus fruits
  • Kale
  • Kidney Beans
  • Asparagus
  • Cabbage

Vitamin E is one of the important vitamins for healthy skin.
Vitamin E rich foods are:

  • Nuts and seeds
  • Wheat germ
  • Peanut butter
  • Sweet potatoes

In addition to adding these foods to your diet -- you should also be treating your skin in a healthy way such as:

  • Be gentle on your skin -- wash with a mild cleanser -- using your fingertips
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Don't smoke
  • Wear less makeup -- and remove it before going to bed

Just doing these things -- and eating right -- will help you get the healthy, clear skin you desire.
