Women, and even men nowadays, spend a small fortune on creams and lotions to keep their skin youthful looking.
But there’s something you need to know, says Total Health Breakthroughs Editor Melanie Segala. And you won’t hear it from the billion-dollar skin care industry. Taking care of your skin from the inside with a healthy diet is far more important than using the most expensive anti-aging products.
Vitamin C, for example, helps build collagen, says Melanie. That’s the connective protein that makes up 75 percent of skin. And as you age, you lose collagen. That’s one way you get wrinkles. But you can help replenish lost collagen by eating vitamin C-rich foods. Strawberries, red peppers, citrus fruits, and tomatoes are just a few.
At the same time, you’ll be getting much needed antioxidants that prevent chronic disease. No high-priced skin cream can do all that.
