Although to many it doesn’t really cross their mind, a person’s diet can have a significant effect on the condition on their skin. These effects aren’t just completely superficial either; not only can a healthy diet give you nice skin, but it can also even help ward against dangerous conditions like skin cancers, such as melanoma or carcinoma. Here are some more ways your diet can impact your skin.

Moisture

Naturally, drinking water is one of the healthiest things you can do for not just your skin, but your whole body. Keeping up with your water intake means providing your organs and skin with plenty of moisture naturally lost through sweat and other bodily functions. 

Wrinkles

If you eat foods heavy in healthy oils and omega-3 fatty acids, these can have a heavy impact on your skin’s health. Found in fish, nuts, olive oil, and many other foods, consuming these can help your skin with collagen production, which helps with preventing premature wrinkles and skin sagging.

Melanoma

An exceedingly dangerous form of skin cancer, melanoma often occurs due to severe sun damage and lack of protective clothing and sunscreen. Thankfully, there are quite a few foods out there that can help prevent melanoma. By keeping a heart-healthy diet, loaded with fish and leafy greens, you’ll have some of the best protection available health-wise for your skin.

Blemishes

Acne and acne scarring are the banes of anyone concerned about the health of their skin, and dermatologists haven’t quite figured out what foods may or may not affect your skin’s susceptibility to breakouts. Just in case, it’s recommended to stay away from those foods and drinks heavily loaded with sugar and high fat, which can leave you more susceptible to skin blemishes.
