What do these foods have in common? They are some of the very best foods for fighting aging and keeping your skin beautiful.

 

How? The nutrients in these foods—from vitamins A, B, and C to the minerals iron and zinc—act as powerful antioxidants, neutralizing the free radicals that form in your skin due to sun exposure, environmental toxins, and a poor diet. The entire body needs these antioxidants in order to work properly and give us the glowing, healthy appearance we crave.

 

Inside, you’ll learn more about how the three superstar foods above—and ninety-seven others—can do more for your skin and overall beauty than any expensive night cream, facelift, or Botox injection. Nutritional scientist Allison Tannis will walk you through the many layers of your skin and reveal what actions you can take to prevent wrinkles, eliminate existing ones, and improve your complexion. No waiting lists, risky surgeries, or astronomical costs—just delicious, healthy food. You’ll discover:

  • Which well-known foods in your fruit bowl and fridge are best for fighting puffiness, sagging, acne, and more (think apples, pears, carrots, and potatoes)

  • What new-to-you foods you can introduce to your diet to keep youlooking fresh-faced and glowing (mackerel and mangosteen included)

  • Why some surprising foods—like chocolate, eggs, and maple syrup—don’t deserve all the bad press and why your skin needs them

  • What foods you should stay away from to avoid oily-looking, inflamed, or wrinkled skin

 

In addition, you’ll also find fifty delicious recipes specially formulated to improve your complexion. Each recipe contains at least one of the 100 featured foods, making it easier than ever to get your skin-healthy lifestyle started. Become your most beautiful the natural way—with Feed Your Skin, Starve Your Wrinkles.
