Most people would be surprised to know they can completely change the look of their appearance through eating certain beauty foods, and beverages for that matter.

We know that fruits and veggies are great for our skin, but what you may not know is certain unconventional foods are also great beauty remedies that most of us don’t even know about.

I’m always on a mission to keep my skin in tip top shape.

I’m not concerned with aging as much as I am with the quality of my skin.2

For many years, I've been a firm believer that our skin reflects how healthy we are on the inside.

By feeding our body what it needs, we can naturally give ourselves beautiful skin without a lot of effort otherwise.

Read on to find surprisingly and extremely effective beauty foods to add to your daily menu so you can literally put your best face forward.

1. Coffee

For the faint of heart or the coffee critic, there is proof from numerous amounts of studies that 1-2 cups of coffee a day can be a powerful beauty food.

How, you ask?

For starters, coffee is actually one of the foods highest in antioxidants of all plants.

The coffee bean is also very heat stable, so when you brew your cup of joe in the morning, all of the antioxidants stay in tact, unlike many delicate antioxidants found in other plants and veggies.

In fact, in one cup of coffee, you’re actually getting more antioxidants than in one cup of fruit.

While that isn’t an excuse to live off Starbucks or ditch fresh fruits and veggies, it is proof that 1-2 cups daily can have a wonderful effect on your skin.

Coffee has also been linked to lower insulin to reduce type 2 diabetes.

When your insulin is stable, so is your blood sugar, which prevents hormonal swings that can lead to breakouts.

This makes coffee a double dose of goodness.

Antioxidants in coffee protect the skin from sun damage and aging.2

These same antioxidants also prevent the breakdown of collagen in the skin.

Just be sure to keep your java limit at 1-2 cups to prevent dehydration.
