  3. Nutrition: Regular consumption of fruits, vegetables, greens, and limiting the intake of fatty and sugary foods can improve skin health.
  4. Visit a beautician: If you have serious skin problems, it is important to see an experienced beautician or dermatologist for professional help and treatment recommendations.
