We all know
that girl. The one that’s gone a tiny bit overboard with her anti-aging
obsession. The one that doesn’t blink at a $140 Vitamin C serum and is a
bit evangelical about her Clarisonic. The
one that has researched the efficacy of the Save My Face pillow. I am
that girl. I’m also that girl that has excellent skin.
Here on the site, I plan to bring you the cliff notes of skin care so that you don’t have to spend that time between work meetings researching Phytomer. Let me do the grunt work. My goal is for everyone, regardless of time and fund constraints, to have the skin they deserve. And with that in mind, let’s get to the single most important aspect of skincare.
That’s right. You really are what you eat. After 10 years and thousands of dollars, I can tell you without hesitation that your skin’s beauty starts from the inside out. You can use all the La Mer you want, but if your diet is based on Seagram’s and bread…you’re screwed. Everyone, including YOU, Miss Lucky Genes with the size 0 frame, should really take account of their diet.
For your skin and your major organs it’s important to make sure a majority of your diet is including the following items:
· Healthy fats (think avocado, walnuts and salmon)
· Green tea
· Sweet potato
· Red and green vegetables, especially dark leafy greens
It’s hard to change your diet or even to just eat right all the time. To jump-start the effects of eating the right skin foods and mitigate the damage you did at happy hour, dedicate one day a week to juicing, as a time to let your body reset and to make sure you’re up on your vitamins and antioxidants by getting a ton of fruit and vegetable nutrients into your system. I cannot say enough about the benefits of juicing. If you don’t have a juicer, use your blender and make smoothies. They are just as refreshing while giving you the fiber you miss out on by juicing.
To get you started I’ve listed a few of my favorite recipes. Have fun with it and experiment. Take a trip to the farmer’s market and go bonkers. There’s a world to gain by juicing, including some seriously glowy, smooth, zit-free skin.
