A favorite drink of many people, green tea is not only tasty but it’s also highly beneficial for your skin health. It’s full of polyphenols and catechins – antioxidants which protect your skin from sun damage (though you should still use sunscreen) and reduce skin redness by fighting inflammation.
Yogurt and kefir
Yogurt and kefir are packed full of living probiotics which help your skin look young by reducing redness, irritation, and acne. The friendly bacteria fight inflammation in the gut, which is where a lot of skin problems take root.
You can also apply yogurt topically to rejuvenate your skin – lactic acid in yogurt has anti-aging and exfoliating properties that will reduce fine lines and give your face a healthy glow.
Honey is naturally antibacterial, antioxidant, and humectant, so it’s no wonder that it’s so beneficial for the skin. Though usually used in DIY face masks and applied topically to reduce inflammation, treat acne and moisturize dry skin, eating honey is also a good idea, especially if you’re replacing other sweets with it.
