You are what you eat

Posted by on Fri, February 18th, 2011 at 2:00 pm


We all are familiar with the phrase “you are what you eat,” but we certainly don’t all swear by it. Of course, if you eat a hot dog you won’t turn into one, but you will fill your insides with the fat and sodium that are jam packed into that tasty treat. I found a great article discussing eight foods for healthy skin. Especially during the winter, many people are prone to dry skin. Here are some foods that can nurse your skin back to health and keep your face looking fresh and youthful.

Lemons
-If lemons are consumed regularly with water or tea it can leave your skin with a gorgeous glow.
Apples
-Scientific studies have proven that red delicious and granny smith apples help to enhance both collagen and elastin production.
Aloe
-Aloe works wonders as an anti-inflammatory. It also helps heal burns and wounds, draw oxygen to the skin, and balance your system.
Cucumbers
-Cool as a cucumber? Yup! Cucumbers help to cool the delicate area around your eyes.
Green Tea
-Green Tea is rich in polyphenols, which are compounds that have amazing healing qualities, and help to protect skin, reverse damages, and prevent oxidative stress.
Pomegranate
-Just like Green Tea, pomegranates are rich in polyphenols. They also contain ellagic acid known for anti-inflammatory and anti-bactrerial properties.
White Tea
-”White tea is one of the richest in cancer-fighting anti-oxidants in the world.”
Apricots
-Apricots are known to be the anti-aging fruit – keeping your skin looking youthful and healthy.
