Healthy grains help nourish our bodies in many different ways. These grains promote beauty from the inside out. Here are a few grains that are great for your skin. 

Buckwheat contains the antioxidant rutin.
Rutin is an anti-inflammatory antioxidant and is great for skin. Buckwheat is also rich in vitamin B, which can help prevent dry, irritated skin. A vitamin B deficiency can cause acne, rashes, and makes your skin more sensitive overall.

Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, millet is another great grain for skin. Because they are low in the glycemic index, whole grains are able to reduce acne. This also has to do with the grain's hormonal balancing abilities. Foods that are high in sugar can cause acne to worsen. Millet contains the amino acid L-lysine which promotes collagen production in the skin. Collagen is an important protein that promotes skin elasticity, leaving your skin tight and smooth.
