V-Day Resolution: The Skincare Diet You Must Take On

With Valentine’s Day approaching fast, we’re sure skincare creams are flying off the shelf; whether it’s to hide dark spots, zits, or sun damage, overdoing a combination of products can do more harm than good. In fact, even a heavy application of concealer or foundation can clog your pores.

There’s no quick and easy way to achieve flawless skin. The only thing that works is a consistent use of products or natural remedies that suit you, and of course, a food plan that detoxes your skin from the inside out.

While we are one for New Year’s fitness resolutions, we also believe that V-Day is the ideal occasion to fuel your vanity and resolve to take on a skin-friendly diet for the rest of the year. From flushing out the impurities to improving blood circulation, nothing can quite match up to targeting the root cause of your skin problems—your body and diet composition.

Try these foods which act as a natural collagen, hydrate your skin, reduce the appearance of dark spots and blemishes, and also help heal scars and sun spots faster.


They contain high doses of vitamin C, which helps boost the natural collagen production in your skin.

With traces of copper, apples also contribute to the skin’s melanin production, while the vitamin A and other antioxidants control acne, reduce pigmentation and accelerate hair growth.


They are a rich source of minerals, including potassium, manganese, biotin, vitamins C and B6. The vitamins help to maintain the elasticity of the skin and the antioxidants prevent aging. Bananas also act as a natural moisturizer for the skin.


Like most citrus fruits, oranges contain high doses of vitamin C, along with beta-carotene, folic acid, phosphates, iodides, iron, phytonutrients, and flavonoids. These components help to treat dark spots and blemishes.


This natural source of collagen can iron out the wrinkles and crow’s feet on your face. Oysters have reparative properties that can restore the elasticity and improve the structural support of the skin cells.


Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, tuna does wonders for your skin by keeping it hydrated and improving elasticity. This will ward off all signs of aging and flaky skin, and reduce acne symptoms by keeping inflammation in check.
