GLOWING-SKIN NUTRITION ~ IT STARTS INSIDE

BEAUTIFUL SKIN starts from within...That beautiful, highly-desired GLOW begins with WHAT WE EAT...
Our skin is our body's largest organ. SKIN NUTRITION ~ nourishing the skin from the inside out ~ makes all the difference in the way your skin LOOKS and AGES.
BEAUTY TIP FROM THE INSIDE-OUT:
What TO EAT to get your BEST SKIN? As DIETITIANS and BEAUTY LOVERS we recommend...
HIGH-FIBER: A key element of GLOWING-SKIN nutrition - FIBER. It is essential as it provides ANTI-AGING ANTIOXIDANTS, helps ELIMINATE TOXINS and aids in DETOXIFYING your body. We recommend 35 grams of fiber every day. Focus on fruits/vegetables, and include some whole grains.
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS: These essential fatty acids aid in making SKIN SMOOTHER and YOUNGER LOOKING. We recommend eating 200 mg of DHA a day ~ example: that's equivalent to two servings of salmon a week or you can supplement with salmon oil capsules. We also suggest walnuts, ground flax, cauliflower, avocados, & Brussels sprouts.
VITAMIN C: Crucial SUPER-ANTIOXIDANT for ANTI-AGING, it is involved in the formation of COLLAGEN (a protein that binds cells and tissues together) which helps keep your SKIN FIRM and REDUCES fine lines/wrinkles. Include many Vitamin C-rich foods daily: oranges, grapefruit, kiwis, strawberries, red bell peppers, pomegranate, and broccoli.
SILICA: A very important nutrient in maintaining the ELASTICITY of your skin and improving your COMPLEXION. So, enjoy WHOLE fruits and vegetables - do not remove the STRINGS or PEELS, as this key nutrient is found in the strings and peels of plant-based foods.
HYDRATION: Your skin CRAVES HYDRATION, and fluids are also required for FLUSHING TOXINS. We recommend a total daily fluid intake from water, other beverages and food (ie raw fruits and vegetables) for average, healthy adults: males ~15 cups, females ~ 11 cups. Black, green, and white teas are an impressive storehouse of POLYPHENOLS, FLAVONOIDS and CATECHINS. AIM FOR 4 CUPS TEA (TRY IT WITHOUT THE CREAM AND SUGAR) DAILY (these will count towards your recommended daily total for hydration).
BIOTIN: This essential vitamin is not only essential for healthy hair, it is also super important for PREVENTING dry skin and nails. We suggest enjoying avocado daily. Eggs are also a good source.
LYCOPENE: A SUPER ANTIOXIDANT that helps slow down CELLULAR DAMAGE from free radicals. found in high-carotenoid fruit such as tomatoes, so be sure to include daily.
ASTAXANTHIN: This SUPER-ANTIOXIDANT and incredible carotenoid SLOWS DOWN AGING and improves SKIN ELASTICITY, which means fewer FINE LINES and WRINKLES. Yet another reason to enjoy salmon (wild preferred) as well as red trout, shrimp, crab and lobster.
PROTEIN: Helps REPAIR CELLS that have suffered free radical damage. Protein breaks down into amino acids, the BUILDING BLOCKS of cells. Amino acids help to SPEED the REPAIR and REGENERATION of skin cells and collagen. Be sure to include lean proteins in your daily intake to BUILD BETTER SKIN ~ we suggest eggs, chicken (skinless), fish, nuts and seeds, legumes, beans, etc.
