You should pay more attention to the food you eat if you want a radiant skin.
Below are 11 foods you should eat for a radiant skin
1. Olive oil
According to a 2012 study published in PLOS ONE, higher consumption of olive oil is linked with fewer signs of aging. Olive oil contains polyphenols which help fight damaging free radicals.

People who consume dark chocolate regularly are less likely to experience skin roughness and scaliness. Dark chocolates are rich in flavanols which help hydrate the skin and improve circulation.
Fish consumption has been linked to a radiant skin because fish (especially fatty fish) are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which is anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is the root cause of acne.
5. Green tea

Walnuts will help give you a radiant skin because they are rich in omega-3 fatty acid.
