If you plan to try and eliminate gluten, do not replace it with packaged gluten-free foods. These are often processed. Instead, follow Dr. Lipman's advice on how to get gorgeous skin based on a nutritious diet.

"To keep your skin youthful and glowing, I recommend avoiding inflammatory foods such as gluten, and instead eating a diet filled with nutrient-dense foods," Dr. Lipman says. "Leafy greens and other vegetables offer many of the nutrients and vitamins that support healthy skin. Healthy fats, especially those high in omega-3s, help to keep the skin glowing and elastic, fighting off the effects of premature aging. Good quality proteins such as wild fish, organic poultry, and eggs contain amino acids, which are the building blocks of everything in our body, including our skin!"
