Top 10 Foods to Make your SKIN GLOW... (part one)
If you are what you eat, then I spent the last few weeks of 2011 and the first week of 2012 turning myself into a processed, sugar dipped, chocolate filled, candy coated, deep-fried Christmas Cookie. Ugggh. I let the Holidays be my excuse for eating like crap. Can anyone else relate here?
The five extra pounds (yup, five) on my scale are an indication that it's time to get my butt in gear again. But what's worse than the five ugly pounds is that my 39 year old face apparently no longer hides a bad diet.
What?!?!? When the HELL did this happen?!??!
This is something I just started noticing and I'm none-too-happy about it. When I eat like garbage, my skin looks... well... a little duller and dare I say a little older? (I'm whimpering just a little as I write this). My skin is pretty youthful for 39 and when I'm eating well and doing yoga, I can't complain. I've been blessed with pretty good genes (thanks ma). But now? It definitely is NOT looking like the girl in the picture above.
Really? Extra pounds and dull skin that doesn't quite bounce back as quickly as it did after a smile (or in this case, a whimpering grimace)? Say it isn't so!
I have a 14 Day Yoga & Detox Diet Ebook coming out soon. This ebook is a compilation of over 10 years of doing every Detox Diet under the sun. Whatever worked, tasted great, was easy, made me see results, etc... was written down and stuck into a big blue binder. It will all be available for everyone soon.
It's time for me to do a test-run of the ebook to make sure all the shopping lists and recipes are written well enough for everyone else to follow. But that's not for a few weeks yet. I need to see some results in my skin NOW.
So in the meanwhile, for me, and now for you too, I have complied a list of the Top Ten Foods to Make your Skin Glow. (I have to get my glow back)!
3. Salmon: Essential Fatty Acids are what make salmon so great for your skin. EFA's are responsible for healthy cell membranes which hold in water, making the skin look plump and youthful.
