Nine nutrients for healthy skin — and what to eat to get them 

1. Vitamin A: low-fat dairy products

2. Acidophilus: low-fat yogurt

3. Beta-carotene (converts to Vitamin A): mango, apricot, sweet potatoes, carrots, kale, broccoli, spinach, turnip greens, winter squash and collard greens.

4. Antioxidants: blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and plums have the highest content of any foods.

5. Fatty Acids: salmon, walnuts, canola oil and flax seed are high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

6. Healthy Oils: cold-pressed, expeller-processed or extra virgin oils — no more than 2 Tbsp. per day.

7. Selenium: whole-wheat bread, cereals, turkey, tuna and Brazil nuts.

8. Green Tea: drink it or apply it to the skin.

9. Water: half-a-gallon a day is optimum, particularly hard water, because it is high in minerals.
