2. Anthocyanins

These plant chemicals help to maintain collagen and capillaries, which in turn minimises the occurrence of broken veins. Get them from berries and purple fruits and vegetables.

3. Iron and Zinc

Getting enough iron in your diet will help keep anaemia, which makes you look tired and pale, at bay, while zinc is vital for healing skin breakouts. Find both in lean red meat, pulses, nuts and eggs.

4. Water

Dehydration does nothing for your complexion. You should aim to drink at least two litres of water daily.
