Diet, Your Skin, and You!

When you hear the saying ‘Your skin is a reflection of your diet’, it is almost impossible not to think about how true that may or may not be. We all have heard of anti-aging foods that you can incorporate into your diet to help ward off wrinkles. We have heard of certain foods that you can add to help hydrate skin, decrease any blemishes or breakouts, or just give you a much needed glow. Taking care of your body with proper diet and exercise is just as important as taking care of your skin with a proper skincare regimen. Here are a few tips and tricks to help ensure that your skincare routine and diet are giving you radiant skin…

TIP 1: We all have heard that almonds are good for you, but do you know why? Well, almonds are stuffed with Vitamin E, and Vitamin E is a potent sun blocker. By consuming 20 almonds a day, the Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant that helps protect the skin from UV light and environmental free radicals, all while generating cell damaging free radicals. You can also help your skin by incorporating an SPF filled day cream, like Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream. This day cream packs an SPF 30 to help protect the skin from any UVB + IR rays, while helping to protect against infrared damage and address the effects of aging; reduce the look of wrinkles; improve firmness, smoothness & elasticity.

TIP 2: All diets needs a bit of omega-3 fatty acids added to them. Omega-3 fatty acids help erase spots and reduce fine lines. By adding a ½ of a teaspoon to the diet, your skin will be better hydrated as well as lessen irritation and redness. Add a product like Christie Brinkley RECAPTURE 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment, is a skincare must have. This nighttime anti-aging treatment contains PrimalHyal 50, an active ingredient of a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid that replenishes and hydrates skin while you sleep, leaving skin moisturized and ultra-smooth.

TIP 3: Give your diet some Vitamin C. A highly packed food such as sweet potatoes may help smooth out wrinkles and increase collagen production. If you add a wrinkle fighting treatment to your skincare regimen like Christie Brinkley Skincare CLOSEUP Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment, skin-smoothing serum like treatment is a must in any skincare regimen. An instant treatment that tightens the look of skin while firming and smoothing the appearance of crow’s feet, fine line and wrinkles in a flash.

So there you have it, just a few foods to incorporate into your diet and some skincare products you can incorporate into your skincare regimen to ensure fabulous, glowing, and younger looking skin. The healthier your diet is, the healthier your skin will be and look. Whether it is almonds to spinach to blueberries, you know the saying ‘You are what you eat’.
