Fall weather has a tendency to dry out and damage our skin. We must take extra steps to make sure our skin stays moisturized. However, healthy skin starts from the inside out. What you are putting in your body has a huge effect on the condition of your skin. There are several foods that help to nourish the skin. Below I have listed a few.

Avocados:

  • Contains Vitamin C,A,and E which provides natural moisturizers.
  • They also provide magnesium, potassium,and folic acid.
  •  Avocados contribute to healthy skin with the oil it produces.
