Almonds
Did you know that almonds are seeds not nuts? They are also rich with vitamin E, an antioxidant helping to protect your skin from harmful UV lights - particularly important in the Australian climate.

Green Tea

Dark Chocolate
Rejoice! Sometimes a little bit of chocolate can be good for you. Dark chocolate also contains which help improve the way your skin retains moisture (great for wrinkle-fighting) and it also helps to protect against sun damage.

Remember though, it's certainly no replacement for sun safety when you're outside for extended periods of time.



carrots

Carrots
Who would've thought that carrots would be so great for pimples? Carrots are packed with vitamin A, which is good for clearing up breakouts. Eating these nutritious little treats helps prevent the overproduction of cells in the skin's outer layer, which can result in blemishes and dull looking skin.

Tomatoes
They're amazing in pasta and salads and are also great for your skin. These round little beauties are full of a chemical called lycopene, which are the photochemicals that makes it red. What it means to you is that it helps eliminate skin-aging free
radicals caused by UV rays.

A healthy diet is great for more than just your skin, so be sure to maintain a healthy diet and drink plenty of water because ultimately hydration is your greatest friend for flawless skin.
