There’s definitely something about the idea that beauty starts on the inside. If you don’t eat right, your skin will show it. If you want a clear, glowing complexion, you have to start with what you put into your body. While there are many approaches to healthy eating, certain foods are guaranteed to up your beauty game.
Charged to a similar appearance, Gytree in association with SheThePeople, held a Nutrition for the skin workshop. Led by Chahat, the workshop shared the holistic approach to healthy eating and its connection to skincare. Attendees were also treated to some recipes at the end of the session that could help them achieve clearer, healthier skin.
A Brief About the Skin Nutrition Workshop
“The skin acts like a mirror for us, the things that happen inside of us represent in our outer form, in our appearance,” the facilitator said at the start of the workshop. From tips on building a healthy gut to effective ways to detoxify our internal system, the workshop shed some insightful light on skin health. The workshop then revealed the important food groups to focus on for a holistic skincare routine, and the foods that fall into these groups. He also dispelled fat myths and emphasized that there are good and bad fats that come into contact with healthy skin. There are certain essential fatty acids like omega 3 and omega-6, which retain the skin’s natural oil barrier, fighting dryness and uneven skin tone.

The host made sure to provide personal advice and answered questions between sessions to make it an interactive workshop rather than a one-sided conversation. She further shared tips on what causes dullness, how to overcome deficiencies, and a precise checklist for optimizing skin health.
Participants described the workshop as “an informative and engaging session”. Jyoti Sahlot said it was a reminder of “how small changes in diet can go a long way.” She was also grateful for not mentioning expensive food items. another participant Sakshi Bansal said: “Glad to know that the food I ate is having an impact on my skin. Thanks for your time, the slides were crisp and informative. Evangeline said, “Thank you for reminding us again to eat well and maintain a healthy lifestyle.”
“You can never reverse aging, but definitely delay the process”, Shahat said when concluding the workshop.
