Cacao beans, from the cacao fruit tree, have extremely high levels of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins: all of which are great for your skin. Cacao — as well as its more processed, yet still nutrient-rich cousin cocoa — can help keep skin clear and radiant. We’re not suggesting you binge on candy bars for clear skin, but snacking on cacao nibs or adding cocoa powder to your smoothies or warm beverages will give your skin a boost and satisfy your chocolate cravings.


This red-purple fruit is touted as a superfood because of its powerful antioxidant properties. The acai palm tree grows in the Amazon, and its delicious fruit can help prevent acne by eliminating free radicals and flushing toxins from the body. There is also a strong anti-aging and moisture-restoring component to acai. Acai is a delicious and healthy addition to your breakfast or smoothies.


The protein eggs contain amino acids that promote skin cell growth, and can also help to strengthen the skin. Eggs also deliver other important healthy skin components; vitamin D encourages cell turnover and iron keeps skin looking clear and radiant by boosting fresh oxygen to skin cells.


There’s good reason why everyone is crazy for kale: this leafy green vegetable is actually more nutritious than broccoli, cabbage and spinach. Kale’s beta-carotene content is particularly impressive for those with acne-prone skin. And with tons of collagen-boosting vitamin C and melanin-synthesizing copper (the sun damage-protecting pigment) this really is a skin superfood you need to add to your diet.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which means they are a fantastic way for your body to restore lost moisture from the skin, keeping it smooth and supple. These tiny little seeds contain a good dose of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that can help diminish redness. Zinc plays a big role in preventing acne, and chia seeds also happen to have this skin-boosting mineral in abundance.
