What Your Skin Wants You To Eat

Diets loaded with vegetables, beans, cold pressed olive oil and multigrain breads (even better spelt bread)will save your face and organs.

Vitamins A, C, and E and the minerals zinc and selenium will keep wrinkles under control by reducing the amount of potentially damaging free radicals produced by skin cells.

Carotenoids contribute to healthy skin coloring. Eat lots of cantaloupe, apricots, carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, and fruits and vegetables that have deep green, yellow, orange, and red hues.

Drink water, it moisturizes your skin from the inside out, helping to maintain its elasticity and suppleness. Skip the soda. It’s really very tacky anyway.
