The Best and Worst Holiday Foods for Your Skin Health 🥧🥕🍫

Holiday parties mean decorations, dressing up, and all sorts of indulgent dishes. Most health-conscious adults know they should watch finger foods and heavy entrees for sodium, saturated fat, and overall excess calories. However, did you know that what you put on your plate can also transform your skin’s health and appearance?

To help you protect your complexion and make healthy decisions at the buffet table, we’ve rounded up a dermatologist-approved list of the best and worst holiday foods (and drinks).

The Worst

The Best

Of course, it won’t destroy your complexion if you eat an indulgent meal once in a blue moon. Most people do over the holidays! Just be sure that your diet is healthy overall, and your skin will thank you. That said, a healthy diet alone won’t guarantee good skin health. To truly protect your complexion, you should schedule a skin check at least once a year. Our nationally renowned dermatologists, including current and former American Academy of Dermatology board members, are ready to listen to your concerns and help you make smart choices. Happy holidays, and enjoy the food and your good health!
