Want great skin? Here's what to feed your face!
Move over, Clearasil. It seems that zinc might be challenging your position
as best pimple annihilator. In one Swedish study, acne-prone patients who
added a zinc supplement to their diets had an 85% reduction of acne in just
three months. Some great sources of pimple-pummeling zinc are oysters,
turkey, seafood, eggs, and milk.
Collagen-building Vitamin C is a real wrinkle-buster. So kiwis are a perfect
summer food if you want to avoid pesky lines, 'cuz one small kiwi contains
more than 100% of the recommended daily intake of the vitamin. Vitamin C
offers up tons of health benefits, including helping your body to build
collagen. When you have more collagen, your skin retains more elasticity,
and wrinkles are slower to form. Other great sources of the vitamin are
oranges, mango, honeydew & papaya.
Spend a little too much time in the summer sun? Just reach for some
peaches or blueberries. Turns out these sweet, seasonal treats contain tons
of Vitamin E. "E" (the vitamin, not the tv network) is known for easing the
redness and swelling associated with sunburns. And by preventing swelling, it
also prevents stretching of the skin that can lead to wrinkle formation.
ERASE DARK UNDER-EYE CIRCLES
Iron + Vitamin C = a great way to attack dark under-eye circles. Try pairing
up sliced boneless, skinless chicken breasts (high in iron), with some sliced
red, yellow, or orange peppers (great source of vitamin C). Sautee them
together, with some onions and garlic, in a non-stick pan spritzed with nonfat
cooking spray. The result? A delicious, low cal, under-eye circle erasing
GET THAT GLOW
Want that J. Lo glow? To get skin looking fresh, dewy, refreshed, and
healthy, guzzle down lots of H2O. It may sound cliche, but it's definitely true.
Water flushes out toxins, and keeps you hydrated, so it really does keep skin
looking rosy and supple.
PREVENT SKIN CANCER
Tomatoes completely ROCK. They contain three skin cancer fighting
antioxidants: beta carotene, vitamin C, and lycopene. So tomato it up with
stewed tomatoes, fresh tomatoes and tomato sauce! And if you want to
maximize your body's absorption of lycopene, cook your tomatoes in a small
amount of olive oil. You don't have to ask us twice. Yum!
