Well, welcome to the millions of women all over the world who are buying the latest, greatest, facial products in record numbers: with few, to no results.The problem may be that you are spending far too much time and money on commercial products in hopes of keeping and promoting youthful, supple, and wrinkle free skin, while neglecting to include your diet into your skin care regimen.Maybe it’s time to rethink what you’ve been doing to your face and skin with store-bought products and think about some new approaches to your skin care. The truth of the matter is that you simply can’t overcome what you are missing in your diet with more skin care products off the shelf. What you eat has a startling effect on your skin, or perhaps, what you aren’t eating. You can change your skin and bring back that healthy glow and suppleness to your face just by eating the right foods.Concentrate on changing your skin from the inside out first. When you eat for the health of your skin, you will notice real and lasting results. You will see the results you have been looking for with these diet tips:1. You probably already know that grapefruit is high in vitamin C, but did you know that it helps increase the production of collagen and that it actually helps to reduce those fine wrinkles? The good thing is that you don’t need to put yourself on another grapefruit diet to reap these benefits. Just include eating 1/2 a grapefruit at breakfast every day in your daily skin care regimen.2. I’m wondering if you’ve been being so overcome by the beauty of all of the colors at your local produce counter that you turn your face away from the dull and lowly sweet potato. If so, you may want to reconsider one of the best natural face care foods, since the sweet potato is overloaded with beta-carotene.Beta-carotene is a natural anti-oxidant that fights nonstop against acne and sun damage. Beta-carotene is also abundant in carrots and pumpkins, and is a much need anti-inflammatory for your entire body.3. What about almonds? They are full of vitamin E, a really potent anti-oxidant. Keep a bag of almonds stashed somewhere, and eat a hand full every day to promote the most beautiful and healthy skin possible. 4. Of everything we need for beautiful skin water could be the most important and least appreciated of the bunch. If you’re not getting enough water every day, your skin turns dry, flaky, and the opposite of supple. When your body is not properly hydrated your skin is dry, and is much more prone to wrinkles.When it comes to beautiful skin it’s important to know that the water you drink actually goes to all the rest of your body, before it gets to your skin. So, be sure you are drinking enough water to ensure that your skin and face are being properly hydrated.
