PostSubject: Skin Diet   Thu Jun 28, 2007 5:25 pm

I know this is crazy, but yeah i'm doing a skin diet for my skin. I have pale, dry skin which is very unsexy on many levels. So this diet + a tan should slove my problems. Natural skin is the best type of skin to have, but if any one knows of any organic moisturizers let me know.

Diet Recommendations for Dry Skin

-Eat a balanced diet that includes vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds, and nuts. Eat quality protein from vegetable sources. Increase your intake of raw foods.

-Eat foods such as garlic, onions, eggs, and asparagus that are high in sulfur, which helps to keep the skin smooth and youthful.

-Consume plenty of yellow and orange vegetables. These are high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant. Carrots are especially good.

-Unrefined, cold-pressed flax seed oil used daily on salads and baked potatoes, or mixed into any dishes which do not require heating to high temperatures will make dry skin moist and supple. Flax seed oil contains the essential fatty acids omega-3 alpha linolenic acid and omega-6 linoleic acid. These are converted in the body into hormone, like substances called Prostaglandins, which support skin health.

-Cantaloupes, carrots and apricots are heating foods for dry skin because they are rich in the vitamins A and C, both important for a supple, smooth skin. Eat them whole or take as fresh juices. Eat foods rich in pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), such as quark, raw. milk cheese, natural plain yogurt, kefir, leafy green vegetables, nutritional yeast and wheat germ. Pantothenic acid is need for the synthesis of fats and oils used by the skin.

-Drink at least 2 quarts of quality water every day to keep the skin well hydrated.

-Avoid fried foods, animal fats, and heat-processed vegetable oils. Use cold- pressed oils only. Heating oils leads to the production of free radicals, which have a destructive effect on the skin.

-Do not drink soft drinks or eat sugar, chocolate, potato chips, or other junk foods.

-Avoid alcohol and caffeine. These substances have a diuretic effect, causing the body and skin cells to lose fluids and essential minerals.

I read some article about being fair skinned. It said that we tend to look more younger than those that are tanned! We have advantages Vi!!
Since I'm planning on staying single forever.. might as well hold my youth as long as I could.
