If you are taking good care of your skin on the outside, by getting things like laser and Botox from The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester, consider adding another element to your routine and help take care of your skin from the inside out through your diet. From yogurt to chocolate, this article will discuss three of the best foods for your skin and why.

Greek Yogurt

If you haven’t hopped on the Greek yogurt train, you are seriously missing out on some amazing benefits. For instance, the high protein content in Greek yogurt can not only help you to slim down and tone up, but it can also help aid in firmer and glowier looking skin. If you don’t like to eat yogurt, try making a homemade yogurt mask out of yogurt and raw honey.

Chocolate

“I’ll pass on the dessert” might be a phrase that you’ve become accustomed to saying. However, next time there is a piece of dark chocolate involved, consider hopping right on that wagon. Containing a high level of antioxidants and filled with cocoa, dark chocolate can help keep your skin hydrated and looking younger for longer.

Yellow and Orange Peppers

If you like stir-fry’s or fajitas, then you are in luck because yellow and orange peppers are on the list of foods that are healthy for your skin. Filled with carotenoids, yellow and orange peppers are filled with antioxidants which help to decrease your skin’s sensitivity to the sun— leaving you with less sun damage and wrinkles.

Taking care of your skin doesn’t have to only be about fillers and night creams. In fact, by adding the above three foods into your diet, you can help to take care of your skin from the inside out. To learn more, contact one of our surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester.
