Can you eat your way to beau­ti­ful? Ac­cord­ing to the ex­perts, the an­swer is yes.

Be­fore Bo­tox and laser, women’s best ally in the beauty de­part­ment came from the foods they were sur­rounded with. From Cleopa­tra’s milk baths to the olive oil used by an­cient Greeks and Ro­mans to cleanse and mois­tur­ize skin, food ap­plied top­i­cally has al­ways been our great­est beauty aid. But in an age of high-tech beauty, when the face of your dreams is just a treat­ment away, can some­thing as sim­ple as a sweet potato make you look, and feel, more beau­ti­ful?

The ex­perts cer­tainly be­lieve so, ex­pound­ing a long list of foods that can help us achieve gorgeous skin, hair and nails. “One of the most im­por­tant things you can do to keep a youth­ful, glow­ing ap­pear­ance is to eat foods that pro­vide your fea­tures with op­ti­mal nu­tri­tion,” says Lisa Drayer, au­thor of The Beauty Diet and a reg­is­tered di­eti­tian. “The foods we eat serve as the nu­tri­tional foun­da­tion for our fea­tures—our skin, hair, nails, eyes, teeth and, of course, our body shape.”

The good news is that there are tons of de­li­cious foods to help achieve your beauty goals. Here we break down the top foods to add to your gro­cery list and your list of beauty go-tos.
