    Scientists are closely studying the relationship between nutrients in the diet and skin health. For example, studies suggest that the healthful oils found in fish and other seafood help to control inflammation in the body. Research suggests that eating fish may help people manage certain skin conditions caused or worsened by inflammation.
    Some preliminary studies suggest that consuming high levels of certain vitamins (such as vitamin C) and some types of foods (such as vegetables) may also benefit your skin. Talk to a dermatologist about choosing foods that can promote your skin's health.
