We already know that skincare is not just all about using the right products on our skin. It is also about having the discipline to stick to our skincare routines and having a healthy lifestyle. Just like how we watch what we consume when we are on a diet, we also need to be mindful of what we eat if we want healthier and clearer skin.

As the saying goes, “We are what we eat.” When taking care of our skin, what we eat has a big impact on how clear our skin will be. Eat too many oily foods and you will risk getting breakouts. Not drinking enough water? Expect to get dry skin. Today, we are going to be focusing on the different drinks that can help you clear your skin.

Green Tea

Aside from coffee, try drinking green tea also. It’s great against inflammation and redness. It also has antioxidants that protect you from free radicals. You can sip on this healthy drink as is or add lemon and honey to boost its health factor.

Coffee lovers rejoice. You can add clear skin as one of the benefits to your favorite drink. Drinking coffee, specifically black coffee, also helps fight ultraviolet radiation and destroys potentially cancerous cells.

Coconut Water

A delicious and highly nutritious drink. Coconut water is a rich source of electrolytes and is packed with calcium, B vitamins, potassium and magnesium. All of these minerals help in keeping your skin healthy and well hydrated. As an added bonus, it also helps in keeping your blood sugar level stable. I cannot get enough of this drink.

Red Wine

Red wine is known to be good for the heart but a lesser-known fact is that it is also good for the skin. It contains a lot of antioxidants, can help reduce inflammation and dark spots. So yes, it is okay to have another glass.
