Health Q&A How to stay happy and healthy
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.
