Avoid "dead" processed foods - especially those containing white flour, sugar, and trans fats - as much as possible. These include:

  • All "white" foods, including white bread, pasta, and baked goods
  • All high-sugar junk foods and soft drinks
  • Alcohol (except for small amounts of red wine occasionally)
  • Processed, high-fat and/or high-sodium meats
  • Greasy, oily, fried foods
Many experts believe that a "perfect" diet for healthy skin would contain all of the following foods:
  • Fresh organic fruits (bright colored with phytonutrients and anti-oxidants preferred)    
  • Raw and lightly steamed organic vegetables (bright colored with phytonutrients and anti-oxidants preferred)    
  • To make sure your diet includes plenty of vitamin C, eat citrus fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C such as bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, and leafy greens. These foods can replace the loss of the vitamin through the skin.
  • Oily, cold-water ocean fish
  • Flax seeds and flax-seed oils
  • Extra-virgin olive oil and macadamia nut oil
  • Raw, organic nuts (including almonds, walnuts, and brazil nuts)
  • Raw, organic seeds (especially sunflower seeds)
  • Small amounts of whole-grain foods
  • Organic, hormone free low fat beef, and poultry
