I completely contradict the expression "Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder". I would rather say that it lies in the heart of each and every person. It's the beauty in the heart that reflects so naturally as radiance and a glow on the person's face. Moreover, it goes way beyond than being just skin deep. You may try using all the wonder creams worldwide but you need to delve skin-deep to find the causes of your dull complexion, persistent spots or sensitivity flare-ups.
World-renowned dermatologist Dr. Howard Murad popularly known as 'The Father of Internal Skincare' shared his inside-out approach to beauty. Here's what he said:
Focus on the inside- 80% of our skin's health is from internal care while 20% is from other tropical products. So it is very important to receive nutrition from a good diet and supplements.
Save yourself from "city spots"- Pollutants in the air can ravage our skin causing breakouts. Using antioxidant-rich products that not only fight free radicals but also keep skin healthy is a wise decision to make.
Eat water- Structured water, the one which is raw in fruits and vegetables is more efficient and has the ability to better penetrate water into living cells.
Shower swiftly- Are you a gym bunny? If so, make sure to change out of post workout clothes quickly and hop in the shower. Sweaty clothing can awaken acne-causing bacteria and clog pores!
Don't rush your bedtime cleansing- Bacteria can easily survive on the skin if not cleaned properly. Also, free radicals your skin encounters during the day can build up causing tissue damage that leads to accelerated ageing.

Basically, you need to eat ingredients that are rich in Vitamins C and A, zinc (pumpkin seeds, cashew nuts, raw cacao) omega 3s and 6s (oily fish, chia seeds, and flaxseeds). Try avoiding acidity-forming foods like meat, dairy, alcohol, and caffeine.
