Glowing skin is a result of a healthy diet and the right lifestyle. Better the choice of your food, the better your skin will look. If you want drop-gorgeous skin, start with your diet. Dermatologists believe that when your diet is missing essential nutrients for healthy skin, skin problems occur.

“Skin problems like Acne, eczema, psoriasis etc can be directly linked to your diet,” says Dr Jisha, an expert Dermatologist at CureSkin.

The cell membrane also holds water in, the stronger the barrier is, the better it holds moisture resulting in plumper, younger-looking skin.
