1. Ginseng Ginseng is also a brilliant overall complexion booster. Its roots and leaves are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, allowing them to metabolise skin cells and help get rid of dead skin cells to produce healthy new skin. 2. Red Wine Next time you're grabbing a glass of vino at happy hour, you can feel good about this superfood's skin boosting benefits. A study published in the journal Dermatology and Therapy showed that the potent antioxidant in red wine, resveratrol, has antimicrobial effects that can help banish breakouts. 3. Edamame Like other soy products, edamame contains isoflavone, a phytoestrogen that has skin plumping properties. In fact, a Japanese study found that women who consumed 40 mg of the stuff daily had improved elasticity and firmness after 12 weeks.
4. Safflower Oil The omega-6 fatty acids found in safflower oil serve as ultra-rich moisturizers. And safflower oil is a natural emollient, meaning it provides a barrier to keep moisture in and can help heal skin—great news if you have dry skin. A 2018 study found that it has some anti-inflammatory effects, too. 5. Bone Broth Celebs and influencers who swap their morning coffee for bone broth might be onto something. It’s rich in collagen, the most abundant protein in the body, found in the skin, bones, muscles, and tendons and while the collagen you eat doesn't turn into straight collagen in your skin, a small study from the Journal of Skin Pharmacology and Physiology found that consuming collagen can boost skin elasticity and hydration— helping skin look healthier and more supple.
