4. Garlic

Garlic contains a powerful antioxidant called allium, which is a natural free radical fighter that is perfect for both your immune system, as well as your skin.

 

5. Yogurt and Kefir

If your skin has a red tone and is easily irritated, eat more foods with probiotics such as yogurt. The natural bacteria in yogurt acts like a skin conditioner that works from the inside out. Kefir is another milk product that is similar to yogurt but has three times more probiotics than regular yogurt. You will find this in many supermarkets as a drink because of its thin consistency. Probiotics reduce inflammation and oxidative stress so if you suffer from acne, dermatitis, rosacea, or psoriasis, yogurt and kefir are for you!

 

6. Green Tea

For younger looking skin, you need to regenerate new skin cells. When skin cells mutate, they lead to all kinds of problems- everything from cancer to uneven pigmentation. Green tea is loaded with antioxidant power, along with a substance known as EGCG. Multiple studies show that these two ingredients keep skin cells growing properly and help to maintain that beautiful skin you are looking for. Always brew your tea fresh as the bottled stuff contains little or no nutritional benefits.

    Plain yogurt massaged gently into a scar for a minute or two will remove it in an amazing short period of time. Use plain yogurt with a white French clay to make a facial mask will gently exfoliate and leave your skin glowing. Be careful the natural acid if left too long on your skin will cause irritation so always rinse away thoroughly with room temperature to cool water which will close your pores.
