We have to feed ourselves and our families every day, so it is important to make wise choices when it comes to the foods we eat. Whether you are staying home more due to COVID-19, you are homeschooling your children this year, or you are making lunches to send to school and carry with you to work – eating habits matter. Most likely, we have all heard the importance of eating smaller meals with snacks in between to keep our metabolism at a steady rate. This helps us to avoid “crashing” during the afternoon and ruining our healthy diets. Well, what you eat affects more than your waistline. The types of foods that you choose for snacking also impact the health of your skin.

“You are what you eat,” is a silly old saying, but it has a lot of truth to it. The foods that you eat have a direct impact on how your body functions, including your skin. We must remember that the skin is the largest organ of the human body, so it should not be neglected. When the skin is properly nourished, it feels radiant, softer, and more youthful.

As with most things in life, you can categorize them into groups of good vs. bad. Below are foods to add to your diet, followed by a list of foods to avoid.

Snack on These:

  • Foods high in Vitamin C: broccoli, strawberries, potatoes, red peppers, sweet potatoes, kiwi, blueberries, and cauliflower
  • Foods high in Vitamin E: almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, brazil nuts
  • Foods high in Beta-carotene: broccoli, carrots, cantaloupe, corn, leafy vegetables, tomatoes, squash, tangerines, and watermelon

Snacks to Avoid:

  • Greasy foods: potato chips, French fries, buttery popcorn
  • Foods high in sugar and refined carbs: crackers, pretzels, cookies, brownies, pre-packaged cereal bars, candy

At Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta, we take a comprehensive approach to skin care. We know that the health of your skin is more than “skin deep.” There is a significant correlation between your dietary choices and the health of your skin. To learn more about making healthy choices that will benefit your skin and your entire body, please call our practice.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
