The journey towards healthy skin begins with good nutrition - a well-balanced diet is essential for healthy skin. It won't necessarily reverse damage that is already done, but it will prevent more damage and nourish your skin by supplying the essential vitamins and minerals that your skin needs to keep it looking healthy.

Vitamins and minerals that play an important role in maintaining the quality of your skin include vitamins A, C, and E, and minerals such as selenium and zinc.

The following chart will help you to ensure that you are including these vitamins and minerals in your daily diet.

If you find it difficult to include these foods in your diet regularly, you can always choose to take supplements. Talk to your physician, pharmacist, dietitian, or nutritionist about which supplements will help you maintain a well-balanced diet.
