•Fish and walnuts for omega-3 fatty acids
•Oranges and strawberries for vitamin C
•Eggs and Greek yogurt for protein
•Green tea and yellow peppers for antioxidants
Establish A Good Skin-Care Routine – A regular skin-care routine is key to keeping your skin healthy and clear.
•Wash your hands often and avoid touching your face
