Let’s “Face” The Facts

Fact: when you eat better, you feel better.

If you want to challenge this theory, challenge yourself and give this anti-inflammatory diet recipes a try. Perricone MD created a 3-day diet plan that will not only alter your mood, but your physical appearance as well. Following an antioxidant-rich diet aids in the elimination of puffiness and increases contours and firmness in your skin. It’s like an instant facelift!

The foundation of this “facelift diet”  is salmon, eaten twice a day. Enhance your skin with the food you eat! Salmon is beneficial to the skin for many reasons. Containing DMAE, astaxanthin, and essential fatty acids, this super fish will increase skin’s radiance, glow, and firmness.

The Omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon lock moisture into skin cells, encouraging the production of strong collagen and elastin fibers, which contribute to more youthful looking skin. These fatty acids have also been known to alleviate skin blemishes and nourish hair follicles, helping hair to grow healthy and shiny.

Salmon’s health benefits are far too many to ignore. It is power packed with disease fighting acids, minerals and vitamins. So whether you bake it, broil it, grill it or eat it raw salmon is a powerful addition to your healthy lifestyle.
