Scar free, mark free beautiful skin is everyone's dream. We spend a lot of time and money in considering what we put on our faces. But how much do we think about whether we're following a clear skin diet or not? Nutrition is important for health. An unhealthy diet can damage your metabolism, cause weight gain and even hurt organs, such as your heart and liver. But what you eat also impacts another organ - your skin.
As scientists learn more about diet and the body, it's increasingly clear that what you eat can significantly affect the health and aging of your skin.

Beauty tips for beautiful skin in autumn:
Vitamin C: It is vital for the production and formation of collagen, skin's support structure.

Tips:  two 1-cup servings of fruit and 1 cup of red peppers and/or broccoli a day.
Vitamin E: Collectively, antioxidants act together like an army, protecting skin from free radicals, damaging agents introduced by things like UV rays and pollution. But E is on the front lines: Your skin's top layers contain high levels that guard cells' outer membrane so cells stays protected and healthy. Plus, strong membranes hold water in, keeping skin hydrated.

Tips: 2 tablespoons hulled seeds or 23 almonds daily.

Beta-carotene: is a type of carotenoid (a group of plant pigments) that gives orange and red veggies-like squash and sweet potato-their color. It also has antioxidant powers. Your body converts beta-carotene to vitamin A, which regulates cell production and turnover (the process by which old cells are shed and replaced by new ones) so it keeps skin's surface smooth. Beta-carotene, and other carotenoids like lutein and lycopene, may also protect against and repair the damage sun does to the skin. Despite their color.
Tips: dark leafy greens like spinach and kale are also excellent sources of beta-carotene.
Three 1-cup servings a day.
Omega3 fatty acid: Sea fish and nuts, plus fortified eggs, are bursting with omega-3 fatty acids, which fight inflammation in the body caused by sun and stress. "Inflammation produces free radicals, and free radicals contribute to aging by attacking collagen.

Tips: two 5-ounce servings of fish per week; on other days, 1 oz of walnuts or 2 omega-3-fortified eggs.

Water: Skin cells contain mostly water, and if you're dehydrated, skin will look and feel parched, too. But you needn't chug 8 cups a day -any source of H2O (that includes from fruits, veggies, and even coffee) counts toward your daily water intake. Simply ward off dehydration and dryness by drinking consistently throughout the day and, of course, whenever you're thirsty.
