Feed Your Face Inside and Out!

Ciao bella,

After a long, dreary winter we must lift our spirits and hail to the bountiful harvest spring and summer delivers to us! A bounty to feed our face and bodies to feel and look as good as we possibly can. Here are some tips to keep a youthful glow.

Berries carry powerful antioxidants to give complexions a healthy boost that protect skin cells.

Dark Leafy Greens contain Vitamin A to repair acne and promote skin repair.

Organic Green Tea: one or more cups a day helps to ward off skin cancer and reduces visible signs of aging.

Olive Oil has Essential Fatty Acids that promotes elastic, dewy skin strengthening our cell membranes producing radiant and nourished skin.

Walnuts (also salmon) contain Omega 3 oils for flexible, younger looking skin.

Here are some snacks to fight wrinkles that are antioxidants:

  • Dried apricots or carrots = beta carotene

  • Avocados or apples= lutein

  • Watermelon or cherry tomatoes=lycopene

The best "food" for your skin is Water. Drinking enough is the key to beautiful skin (and kidneys)!

Got stress! It is a sure aging factor. Healthier than a martini! Try RESCUE GUM by Bach! A homeopathic remedy developed over 70 years ago that will keep you calm and in control!

PURE HEAVEN FACIAL MASK: Mix together an egg yolk, yogurt and some honey, let it reach room temperature. Apply to face and neck, rinse with warm water after 15 minutes. Leaves skin soft and nourished inside and out!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
