A good meal and the B12 tips
Years ago, Baz Luhrmann gave us the best skincare advice in his commencement-address/“Sunscreen Song”: “If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.” Some young talent today should write a little ditty about the other great skin saver—diet. By altering the way we eat, we can impact the appearance of age on our face. Dr. Nicholas Perricone, author of The Wrinkle Cure, recommends an anti-inflammatory diet. Because inflammation causes aging, we should seek out foods that are anti-inflammatory, which are ultimately anti-aging foods.
Fruits and veggies are some of the finest anti-aging foods available. Those that are high in Vitamin C seem to be the best youth preservers. Citrus fruits like oranges, tangerines, limes and grapefruits contain high amounts of Vitamin C, while peaches, apricots, and cantaloupe have vital anti-oxidants. (Anti-oxidants also help fight free radicals or agents that damage healthy cells—they help in the body repair department as well—love it!)
Veggies are anti-aging agents too. Green leafy vegetables like lettuce, spinach, and kale all help the digestive process along. Carrots, cucumbers, and celery all start with c—must stand for crunchy; they’re fibrous and face-lifting too. The truth is, all veggies and fruits promote a healthier system and better the skin you’re in. So forget about a fountain of youth and moisturize with vitamins and minerals of the natural, colorful, tasty sort.
Vitamin B12 is an important supplement that promotes healthy skin. B vitamins are vital: they support and increase the rate of metabolism, they maintain healthy skin and muscle tone, and they enhance immune and nervous system function. B12 also increases the absorption of nutrients from the food you eat and the supplements you take. Taking B12 as part of the Lean28 Diet Drop system will help you increase your fat loss while at the same time help improve your skin. At the end of the day don’t we all want to look a little leaner and a little younger?
