Fruits, Foods and Remedies for Smoother, Younger Skin
by Tony Isaacs
Roll back father
time and keep your skin younger, smoother and healthier
with these foods, remedies and other tips:
Healthy Fruits for the Skin:
* The pomegranate's power comes from ellagic acid, a
polyphenol antioxidant found in red wine and green tea.
Ellagic acid has been shown in some studies to
neutralize free radicals more effectively than
polyphenols found in green tea and red wine.
* The top vitamins for the skin are vitamins A, B2, B3,
B6, B12, C and E. Blackberries have all six, including
abundant A, C, and E.
* Dark skinned grapes contain resveratrol, an important
compound for anti-aging as well as plenty of vitamin C
and other good vitamins and nutrients. For maximum
benefits, choose seeded grapes and eat or juice seeds
* Though terribly over-hyped with some online products
and MLM weight-loss schemes, acai is indeed a super
healthy juice loaded with anti-oxidants and nutrients
that have many benefits, including benefits for the
* Blueberries are considered to be among the top three
healthiest juices, along with pomegranate and acai.
* Raspberries, dark cherries, apple and strawberry are
all very healthy juices loaded with antioxidants,
vitamins and nutrients for the skin and overall health.
* Though not a fruit, carrots and carrot juice are
loaded with vitamin A, which is an essential nutrient in
maintaining healthy skin.
Some Other Skin Care Suggestions:
* Shiitake mushrooms contain antioxidants that block
proteins known to cause cell breakdown. They provide
chemical exfoliation and they also contain kojic acid,
which has a lightening effect on age spots and
discoloration, making skin appear brighter over time.
* Pumpkins contain ample carotenoids, which are
derivatives of vitamin A. Pumpkin seeds are a good
source of zinc and have been used as a natural remedy
for acne. Studies show that zinc has an effect similar
to that of the common antibiotic tetracycline.
* Vitamin B7 (Biotin) is necessary for cell growth, the
production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats
and amino acids.
Skin Care Remedies:
* For softer, suppler and less dry skin, try a brown
sugar/olive oil/ginger body scrub. Mix two cups of brown
sugar with one cup of olive oil and add a small amount
of ground ginger. Mix well into a paste. Using circular
motions, rub your entire body, paying special attention
to elbows, heels, and knees. Rinse with a body wash and
wet washcloth and towel dry.
* Use milk and honey to have softer, smoother feet
without harsh exfoliation. Pour two cups of milk per one
cup of honey into a basin large enough to hold both
feet. Soak for 15 minutes, lightly massaging the mixture
into skin. You can also use the milk/honey combo to soak
elbows or hands, or pat gently onto the face and massage
in. Rinse with tepid water.
* If you have normal to oily skin, you can tighten pores
and achieve a brighter complexion with an egg white and
orange juice masque. Mix two raw egg whites with 1/4 cup
of fresh orange juice. Apply to skin and let rest for 15
minutes until dry. Rinse well with warm water.
* For a radiant, moisturized glow, try an oatmeal face
masque (especially good for sensitive skin). Mix oatmeal
with boiling water according to package instructions.
Let cool, then apply to skin and let rest for 15
minutes. Rinse well with warm water.
* Use one or more of these oils to minimize wrinkles and
fine lines and keep your skin healthy and glowing: grape
seed, coconut, olive, avocado (drier skin) and jojoba
(breakout prone skin).
