Healthy skin has always been considered to be the sign of youth, of vitality, of fertility and good genes- therefore it has alsoalways been considered as a true asset of beauty. An innately healthy skin makes one more attractive, and is also truly and naturally beautiful even without the aid of make-up, glamorous clothes, or other artificial, prettifying means. To have this beautiful skin is harder to come by nowadays especially with the pollution that has to be constantly faced, the change of climate which has made the sun's rays still more dangerous and aging to the skin, the stress of the daily grind, the lack of sleep and good sleeping habits, the proliferation of radiation from tv, cellphones, computers, the preference for taking meals from fast-food chains, drive thrus and takeout services- all in all adds to the factors that keep the skin from being healthy.

Aside from slathering on that sunblock, getting your required 8 hours of sleep a day, what else can you do to arm your skin against all these oxidizing factors?

This article shall contain tips on how to maintain healthy skin by maintaining a good diet.

What you eat is very important because obviously, this will affect your whole body's composition. As the source of nutrients that the body uses to power itself, you should be mindful as to what you are putting on your plate, in your mouth and into your system because it is what you constantly eat, on a daily basis for the rest of your life, which determines how your body and in this case, how your skin will age.

The first thing to remember in order to keep your skin hydrated is to drink plenty of water. This is a rule that has been stamped into society for a long time but must still not be forgotten- at least 8 glasses of water a day. Drinking plenty of water regularly makes sure that toxins are flushed out of one's systems often and this keeps the skin well-hydrated (good hydration gives the skin its suppleness and elasticity) and from breaking out because of excess harmful substances that the body must get rid of through sweat.

The second rule is also obvious: keeping fruits and vegetables a regular part of one's diet. For every meal, there should always be at the very least, 2 servings of fruit and/or vegetable in order to give the body the nutrients that it needs in a non-processed and organic way. The fresher the produce, the more potent its nutrients and the more it can give off that the body can use.

Vitamin C rich fruits such as orange, calamansi or lemon are also good for the skin whether taken in as juice, as it is, or even when used as topical applications to the skin. They are healthier and more natural compared to processed skin care products that may contain harmful chemicals.

Among the most known 'food for skin' are berries. Berries such as blackberries, blueberries and strawberries are those that have the highest antioxidant content and they are also really delicious so making them (as well as varying recipes that would include them as ingredients) a regular part of one's diet could help you reap their natural benefits for your skin.

Omega-3 rich foods are also healthy for the skin. Not only that, but they are also really good for the heart. Seafoods such as salmon and tuna have high contents of omega 3 which is also a good antioxidant. Food rich in Lycopene such as tomatoes and other red fruits and vegetables are also good for the skin as it can also give the skin a healthy pinkish glow that makes the skin look more youthful and vibrant. Not only that, but these nutrients are also really good for the heart.

Nothing equates to natural beauty more than a beautiful skin with a youthful radiance to it- a healthy glow that comes from the inside and cannot be replicated through whatever make-up, treatments, or other artificial means one might use. A health skin diet still is the best and most reliable means of achieving naturally beautiful skin that can be achieved and maintained without having to break one's budget spending lots of dollars on make-up or treatments and visits to a dermatologist.
