Are You Eating Right For Healthy, Radiant Skin?

That old maxim, ‘You are what you eat,’ has a lot of merit when it comes to your skin. Clear, youthful looking, healthy functioning skin is a reflection of what is going on in your body. Garbage in, garbage out. Feed your skin fried foods, lots of sweets, and carbonated beverages and you’ll notice the definitely un-pretty signs of toxicity, including inflammation, blemishes, acne, blackheads and even increased lines and wrinkles. So, how do we need to eat and live to look our best?

Think fresh and raw.

Salads are on every restaurant menu, right? We’re becoming a ‘salad society,’ and it couldn’t be better for our health and our skin. The raw vegetables, greens, and eggs that comprise a salad are super skin food we really should eat daily. Raw fruits, especially citrus, are also essential. Why? Take a look below at the 6 nutrients your skin requires. Salad is the most efficient way to get them in.


The ’Magnificent 7’ Skin Foods

1. Cucumbers. Rich in water, Vitamin C and silica, a super food for skin’s elasticity and youthful appearance.

2. Radishes. High in sulfur, ‘the beauty mineral,’ that helps promote healthy liver function to detoxify the body. Boosts your Vitamin C and B vitamins.

3. Eggs. High in zinc, vitamins A, B, and E plus biotin, eggs support skin’s collagen structure and help protect skin from free radical damage.

4. Turmeric. This mega power antioxidant does more than Vitamin E to fight free radicals in the skin that lead to aging. It’s a cleansing herb that also combats bacteria and promotes skin elasticity.

5. Spinach. Has Vitamin C, magnesium, iron and chlorophyll to protect skin from oxidative stress.

6. Blueberries. Loaded with Vitamin C and age fighting antioxidants, they not only help prevent inflammation that causes wrinkles but they help with memory.

7. Wild Salmon. High in Omega-3 fatty acids to protect skin’s outer layer so that toxins and pollutants can’t penetrate it.

If you’ve ever gone to a high school reunion, you will have noticed that the ‘party crowd’ looks a lot older than the others! It may sound limiting, but adhering to a healthier diet and lifestyle has more than skin beauty rewards. You’ll feel more energetic, be more alert, and avoid common viral infections more easily.

Tips For A Healthy Skin lifestyle.

1. Maintain a healthy weight. Don’t stress your body with excessive weight loss or crazy diet programs. This will compromise your immune system.

2. Quit Smoking. Another immune system stressor and very poor for your circulation, which is a skin health lifeline.

3. Limit Alcohol. It inhibits the function of white blood cells that fight infection
4. Limit Caffeine. If you have coffee, even chocolate, try to limit your intake after 1 p.m. You’ll sleep better and look better with less of this skin stressor.

5. Drink Water. The 8:8 rule still stands. Eight 8 oz. glasses of water or more a day gives your body the fuel for optimal rejuvenation and detoxification.

The beauty of skin is that you can nourish it from the outside too. Skin creams that are high in Vitamin A, or Retinol, enhance your skin’s natural monthly renewal process to keep it moving at the youthful 30 day pace. This gives skin a firmer structure, better elasticity, and the ability to combat lines and wrinkles.

Rejuven-A® has pure, high potency Retinol (Vitamin A) to accelerate your skin’s renewal process and support it’s youthful collagen structure. You’ll notice firmer, smoother, more radiant skin with fewer visible expression lines and wrinkles.

Sleep is vital to beautiful skin. We’ll talk about that next time.
