Forget the Facial: 5 Foods to Make Your Skin Glow

Salad #2
You don’t need bi-monthly facials to have great skin (though they sure are fun) – all you need is the right nutrition in your diet to look ten years younger. Stock your refrigerator with these five nutrients and you’re already on your way to a fresh, youthful complexion!

1 Brazil Nut a Day Keeps the Wrinkles Away
Brazil nuts are one of the best sources for Magnesium – a nutrient that slows the aging process of skin by maintaining elasticity and moisture at normal levels.

Relax with Flax
Flax seeds, walnuts and salmon all are high in Omega 3 Alpha-linolenic acids that encourage skin cell renewal and reduces the inflammation of acne and puffiness. Flax seeds are easy to incorporate into your morning oatmeal!

Sexy Sundried Tomatoes
Sun-Dried tomatoes, peanuts, chicken, and veal are high in Niacin, which promotes healthy skin, improves moisture, lightens hyperpigmentation, and decreases acne. Oh, and it also helps produce sex hormones, dilates blood vessels, and revs up your heart. You’ll look good and feel, well, really good!

More Broccoli, Less Dry Skin & Wrinkles
Broccoli, brussel sprouts, guava, papayas, strawberries and oranges are terrific sources of Vitamin C – which has been shown to slow free radicals responsible for dry skin and wrinkles.

Nip Zits with Zinc
Eggs, oysters, peanut butter, beans, whole grains, dairy products and red meat are where you find Zinc – possibly the most important mineral to your skincare. Zinc prevents and alleviates inflammation and scarring from acne and helps heal skin damaged from zits. Some research indicates acne might actually be because of too little zinc in your diet!
