1. Yogurt

Milk is known for contributing to acne and clogging your skins’ pore. However, a moderated consumption of yogurt can help you actually improve it. This aliment has lots of vitamin A, calcium and protein, which are essential to give you a clear and smooth skin. But avoid the high sugar yogurts! They’re bad for you!

Besides that, yogurt can also work well when applied direct to the skin. It has lactic acid, which helps to exfoliate the top layers of the epidermis, clearing and even eliminating some small wrinkles of your skin.
