Cue the jumping for joy: Butter, yes, butter has made it on our list of skin superfoods. Ghee, a staple in Indian cooking, is clarified butter that has been boiled down to remove the water content and dairy elements. Compared to regular butter, it's high in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K, which Wu says help maintain skin elasticity and prevent bruising, respectively.
The superfat is especially popular among the Paleo set, many of whom drink ghee-spiked coffee (also known as Bulletproof coffee). Ghee advocates claim they have more energy, clearer skin and brighter eyes. Wu admits that ghee is a healthier alternative to standard butter, but "it's still saturated animal fat." Translation? Eating too much of this fat in the name of clear skin won't do your figure any favors.
