If you want to look good on the outside, you've got to treat your body well on the inside!
The foods you eat, the liquids you drink and all the activities you take part in can have an effect on the health of your skin. It may be a bit vain to want to look good, but if it means a healthier diet and lifestyle, then be as vain as you'd like!
