Beautiful Skin Your Best Accessory


Secrets to beautiful skin our most delicate accessory is rather simple. It's easy! Start  with a  healthy diet .  Get lots of fruits and vegetables, especially the leafy green ones. Healthy, beautiful, glowing skin starts from the inside. Junk, greasy foods are going to make you feel less vibrant inside and will show on the outside as well. Give your body the good stuff it needs!


Dr Oz says: Do you ever wonder why people from certain countries, like those in the Mediterranean have such radiant skin? The secret is in their diet, rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats. So here are some skin-loving foods that I recommend you get more of to get that same glow. Avocados, eggs, legumes, and nuts, all contain biotin, a vitamin that helps prevent dry skin. Eat Salmon for it’s wrinkle-fighting omega threes and antioxidants. And drink green tea.

Sweating is great for your skin! Our skin acts as our third kidney, detoxifying our bodies. When we  workout, run or exert ourselves, not only do we sweat to cool our bodies, we also increase blood flow, which releases toxins. Sweating is something you need to do regularly-not just because of the cardiovascular and fat burning  benefits of exercise, but also,for the body cleansing function.Healthy Skin Diet

How important is water . Make sure you get plenty of water every day -- six or more eight ounce glasses of water. Your body is made up of mostly water. The more you drink, the more hydrated your skin will be. Hydrated skin is healthy skin. Water also fills you up when you have cravings . Try drinking a full glass of water to hold you over until meal time.

Wrinkles, lines,  that oh-so-special leathery look... and the threat of skin cancer. Don't forget the backs of your hands, the back of your neck, and your chest -- three places that tend to show signs of age quickly.
