Q Does my diet af­fect my skin?

Ab­so­lutely! And some foods are bet­ter than oth­ers. Chow down on any­thing full of pro­tein, phy­tonu­tri­ents, fi­bre and omega-3s, says nu­tri­tion­ist Ja­clyn Lon­don. Your best bets: colour­ful veg­gies and fruits, which are filled with an­tiox­i­dants, as well as nuts, seeds and pulses (like chick­peas, lentils and beans). Eat­ing 340g of fatty fish – for ex­am­ple salmon, mack­erel, tuna and sar­dines – each week can also help in­crease your skin’s glow. Add a side of broc­coli or kale for vi­ta­min C, which boosts col­la­gen for­ma­tion and pro­tects skin cells from dam­age.
