As we age, we find more and more people (women especially) become greatly concerned with the health and beauty of their skin. Many spend thousands of dollars on cometic enhancement in efforts to remain looking youthful. But there are other ways to keep your skin looking smooth, radiant and supple without breaking the bank and then some. We must remember no matter the efforts, we all will get old however, there is a such thing as aging gracefully. 

Lets look at some ways we can obtain and maintain smooth, radiant, supple skin.

Water: Drinking lots of water is helpful with almost anything dealing with the body. In this case, it is an essential beauty product. Water helps to hydrate the skin from the inside and as I always say, "what's within will come out." That mean that having inner health and glow will translate on the external. Drinking water helps in clearing up blemished skin and it flushes out the toxins and dirt that clogs our pores.
Healthy Eating:

The foods in your pantry are just as important as the products you have in your bathroom that are geared toward keeping your skin soft, smooth and radiant. Good nutrition is fundamental in successfully achieving healthy skin, what you eat and drink matters!!!

5 quick food/drink items that are great in for healthy skin:

1. Dark Berries: Berries are jam packed with clearing antioxidants along with lots of fiber.

  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries 

2. Red Grapes: Red grapes and their seeds contain important natural chemicals and antioxidants that have shown to treat inflammatory skin conditions such as the above, psoriasis and eczema. You can incorporate red grapes (with its seeds) in a salad, or enjoy a handful as part of a healthy snack.

3. Nuts: There is a link between acne and deficiencies in essential minerals such as zinc and selenium. Nuts such as pumpkin seeds and Brazilian nuts are the most helpful in attaining the proper levels of these known deficiencies. Low white blood cell count? Selenium helps to increase the amount of infection-fighting white blood cells in our bodies, while zinc brings about the radiant, beautiful skin we all aspire to have. People who suffer from acne, eczema, or psoriasis most likely have a zinc deficiency.

4. Avocado: Widely known for it's great source of vitamin E, avocado boosts the skin's vitality and luminosity. It possess excellent qualities that help reduce skin inflammation such as vitamin C. Its oil has proven to stimulate the production of the skin's collagen that improves skin's tone and texture. Spread some avocado on some crackers or incorporate it in one of your daily meals. Eating a decent amount of avocado can help improve the skin's moisture which is great for those who suffer with dry skin.

5. Green Tea: Drink some cooling green tea and provide your skin with all of green tea's benefits. It contains anti-oxidant polyphenol which improves skin.

Use Sunscreen: Dermatologists recommend using sunscreen to maintain skin health and glow. It helps to slow down aging skin and provides protection from the sun rays that can bring about sun damage and skin cancer. Look for products that have SPF with full-spectrum protection and even if you are not one that spends lots of time in the sun, it's recommend to put it on every day.
