Goodbye, sugary cereal
Avoid high-glycemic foods such as bread, bagels, pizza, pasta, potatoes, and sugary cereal , all of which can lead to inflammation, a cause of aging, in the skin.
In contrast, foods high in protein, in particular, wild salmon, has anti-inflammatory effects. Dr. Perricone recommends avoiding farmed, non-organic salmon because he believes they are filled with chemicals, unlike Wild Alaskan salmon.
For ideal effect, you must eating salmon twice a day as part of your 3 day anti-inflammatory routine. The DMAE, astaxanthin and essential fatty acids in the salmon will help eliminate puffiness, re-contour, firm your jaw line, and increase youthful radiance.
