Eat your way to clearer skin
Looking for a wallet-friendly way to achieve glowing skin? Then head for the supermarket.

From carrots to tomatoes, the simplest superfoods contain vital nutrients that will boost your complexion better than an expensive cream.

So if you’re embarking on a New Year health kick, make sure you include these beauty-boosting superfoods guaranteed to give hair, nails and skin a post-Christmas pep-up.

Tomatoes are rich in anti-ageing antioxidant Lycopene, which also protects against sunburn. Lycopene is better absorbed by the body when it’s cooked, so tinned tomatoes are perfect.

Almonds especially are full of Vitamin E, which is great for healing skin and will help give you smoother skin and stronger hair and nails.

Sweet potatoes
This easy to cook wonder veg contains betacartone, which is one of the best nutrients for your skin. It also contains an anti-ageing antioxidant.

Carrots also contain betacarotene and are a great source of Vitamin A, which helps with clearing up break-outs.

Dark chocolate
Yes, you really can eat chocolate for your skin, as long as it’s dark chocolate. Flavonols, the antioxidants in dark chocolate, reduce roughness in skin and help protect skin from the sun.

Blueberries are always earmarked as a superfood, but any berries are chock full of natural antioxidants that help slow down ageing skin. Grab some raspberries, strawberries and blueberries for a superfood snack.

Wild salmon
Oily fish like salmon is rich in skin-nourishing Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Among many of its skin benefits, it will help fight fine lines and wrinkles and improve clogged pores. © Cover Media
