The easiest way to keep skin moisturized, radiant and healthy, it obviously starts from the inside. Dehydration is devastating for the skin: it's the reason why fine lines and wrinkles appear earlier, for example!
Why is this? Skin cells need a lot of water to keep their membranes flexible and receptive to the nutrients that keep them healthy! So that's the basis.
As for the amount of water to drink each day, you could impose 2 litres on yourself - but finding back harmony is also about listening to your body.

Thirst signals are subtle and the nuance with hunger signals is thin. Yet there are signs that don't deceive: your mouth and throat are dry, your stomach is getting hollow...
Try to listen to his signals, to achieve a more intuitive eating!

Fruits and vegetables

No innovation here either, yet we sometimes forget to eat a satisfying amount of fruit and vegetables.
Why are they necessary for the skin (and for the body in general)?
They provide the vitamins your skin needs!
But the benefits of fruit and vegetables for your skin don't stop there! They also contain the antioxidants that are also necessary for the skin.

You have to diversify your diet, and the type of fruit and vegetables you eat, because each fruit and vegetable has its own benefits.
For example:
Berries hold the record for the most antioxidants
Avocado is rich in vitamin E, but also in this famous "good fat" necessary for skin nutrition.
Tomatoes contain a high dose of lycopene, a pigment that occurs naturally in the skin. Although it does not replace sunscreens, this antioxidant has the ability to provide long-term protection against UV rays and neutralize harmful free radicals!

Fruits and vegetables healthy


The tastiest among us must be jumping for joy! Yes, chocolate is GOOD FOR YOU. But be careful... We're talking about dark chocolate, that is at least 70% cocoa.
Rich in antioxidants, dark chocolate is able of repairing the damage caused by free radicals! It also contains caffeine with anti-irritant properties.
In addition, chocolate contains vitamins B and E, magnesium, potassium and iron. Everything your skin needs!

If you don't like dark chocolate as is, melt it and add nuts or sliced almonds to it... It will be the ideal way to satisfy your sweet tooth, while taking care of your skin!

Fatty fish

In a word: Omega-3.
For a better understanding, it is important to know that oily fish contain proteins and natural fatty acids, such as Omega 3, which optimize water retention in the skin (and not in the legs!) allowing the skin to be younger and well hydrated.
Omega-3s help strengthen the skin's cell membranes. They are also able to protect from the sun's rays and may reduce the risk of cancer!
Which fish are we talking about exactly? Salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines, anchovies or trout... To be eaten twice a week, with healthy cooking to take full advantage of the benefits of these fatty acids. Forget frying and opt for a fish en papillote or grilled!


Rich in copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium and iron, walnuts are a very complete food to fight effectively against skin problems, infections, overproduction of sebum and acne. In short, it is a bit of a miracle food!
The reason is simple: all nuts, especially walnuts, are a source of natural oils and essential fatty acids. They keep the skin feeling plump and supple! 

There you go. You know what to eat to keep your skin glowing and healthy! So run to the nearest grocery store, shop for everything on this list and enjoy it slowly!
Enjoy your meal!
