I was reading the book, Gorgeous Skin In 30 Days By Erica Angyal and learnt that of all the beauty superfoods, berries are the best. This is because berries are loaded with vitamins, minerals and powerful phytonutrient antioxidants that are very effective in neutralizing damaging free radicals and help the skin manufacture and reconstruct collagen, keeping it supple and smooth.
If you want as much protection as possible for your skin against the harmful UV rays, you may want to start eating more tomatoes or tomato paste if you aren’t already doing so. This is because tomatoes contain the potent free-radical scavenging phytonutrient lycopene and recent studies have revealed that lycopene may pack twice the punch of the well-known antioxidant beta-carotene which is known to protect our skin against sun damage.
I don’t know about you but of all the beauty tips that I hear so often, the one I detest most is to drink eight glasses of plain water! I mean, water is bland and tasteless. While I always try to drink it, I can’t always drink that much per day. So I was very glad to learn from this article, the wonders of water, that we no longer need to worry about drinking specific amounts of water. Instead, we can simply satisfy our thirst with any beverage.
