Amazing skin starts on your plate, ladies. It's okay to pamper yourself with all those creams, serums and salon visits, but to get that radiant, glowing and spotless skin— there's no substitute for a good, nutritious diet.

We asked Dr. Reema Arora about what to eat for breakfast and get that flawless skin. Here's the list...

1. Strawberry-Kiwi Smoothie

A Strawberry-Kiwi smoothie is super easy to make, and is one of the best drinks to have for breakfast. One glass is packed with anti-oxidants that help fight skin blemishes, and protect skin cells from sun damage.

Berries are loaded with Vitamin C that lead to skin lightening and reduce the formation of wrinkles. Plus, it helps produce Collagen, which in turn leads to fresher, younger skin.

Bonus: Kiwi is a great source of Vitamin E...say hello to longer, smoother hair.

2. Tomatoes

Whether drunk as juice, eaten grilled or stuffed into your fave sandwich, tomatoes should be a must-have in your daily breakfast. They contain Lycopene, which reduces the formation of acne promoting hormones, and also protects your skin from ultraviolet rays. This juicy fruit has more than 90 percent water content, making it a natural (and cheap) way to rehydrate your skin, and will fix all the damage those parties did last week.

3. Walnuts

This superfood nut is a powerhouse of Omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin E. Sprinkling a handful of them on your salads, desserts or pastas will keep your skin smooth and plump. Plus, they're natural skin moisturisers, and a great source of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) that can do wonders for your daily skin regimen.

4. Green Tea

We don't need to introduce you to the health benefits of this drink. Green tea contains a high amount of anti-oxidants, and minerals including, folate, manganese, potassium, magnesium...to name a few. It flushes all the toxins out of your body and boosts your metabolism. And, did we mention, one cup of this beverage on a daily basis will combat infections all monsoon.

5. Fish

The list of skin superfoods is incomplete without fish! It's rich in Omega 3 acids and amino acids which are the building blocks for skin. Try including oily fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines and trout in your diet. They will keep your skin hydrated and strengthen your skin's cell membrane. Vegetarian? Soy milk, curd and chick peas are all great substitutes.
