Skin Inside And Out: That Certain Something

You know, skin is not only the largest organ of the body, it's also one of the most dynamic, completely renewing itself every four weeks. To keep your skin looking young and healthy, and oh-so-touchable, start with your diet.
Eat plenty of mineral rich foods to provide your skin with the essential nutrients. And stay away from the three F's--fried, fatty and fast foods. They create havoc with your skin. So limit them as much as possible.
One of the best things that you can do for your skin is drink lots of pure water, at least eight glasses every day. If that seems like a lot, break it down. Have two glasses with each meal, one when you wake up in the morning and another one right before bedtime.
Foods rich in vitamin A, B, C, D and E can also keep your skin healthy and young. Vitamin A prevents sun damage. For dry skin, eat foods rich in B complex vitamins. Vitamin C helps the body produce halogen, the glue that holds our cells together. Vitamin E is the skin's best friend when it comes to retaining moisture and warding off sun damage.
When you take vitamins and use moisturizers that contain them, you're giving your skin a positive 1-2 punch. Exercise keeps your body fit and trim and can also make your skin taunt and firm. Just a 20-minute walk every day can keep your skin luminous. And helping your skin from the inside doesn't end when the day does. Sleep is vital, so try to get eight hours every night.
See—it's easy to keep your skin healthy and younger from the outside and the inside.
