Improve your body skincare practices by dishing up these delicious foods

You are what you eat isn't just an expression - the foods we put into our bodies have a direct influence on our appearance, mood and overall health. Our skin is particularly sensitive to the influence of foods we eat. If you want to make sure you always look radiant and healthy, amp up your diet by consuming these power foods:

1. Antioxidants. Antioxidants fight toxins and free radicals that our skin accumulates from the environment, helping us to stay healthy and blemish-free. Examples of antioxidant-packed foods include blueberries, pomegranates and green tea.

2. "Healthy" fats. We're taught to think of all fat as bad, but the truth is they're an integral part of our diet, as long as we're taking in the right kinds. Saturated and trans fats should be kept to a minimum, as they do little more than add inches to our waists and extra grease in our skin. Unsaturated fats, however, are a healthy and necessary component of our diets because, in addition to providing fuel, they send the signal to our brains that we are full. Foods that include these healthy fats are avocados, olives and nuts.

3. Whole foods. Vegetables, fruits, whole grains, eggs and yogurt are nutritious, and can help fight premature wrinkles and aged skin.
