Beauty Rx: Skin Fixes


Here are our 3 favorite pieces of skincare wisdom from Dr. Perricone on Refinery29‘s article,  “Beauty Rx: Foods to Cure Your Beauty Woes.”

“If women understood that eating a simple can of sardines or salmon would give their hair and skin an unrivaled radiance, softness, and suppleness — like nothing else in this world — these foods would fly off the supermarket shelves. You would see a stampede toward the fish aisle.”

“Healthy fats are key to successful weight loss. Good fats are those found in salmon, sardines, anchovies, extra virgin olive oil, nuts, seeds, and avocado. These ‘good’ fats will help us absorb nutrients from our vegetables and fruits, and are key to weight loss because we also need dietary fat to burn fat.”

“Dry skin is actually a manifestation of chronic subclinical (invisible to the eye) inflammation. Make sure that you have adequate intake of healthy fats, such as those found in fish, fish oil, and extra virgin olive oil. While topicals can do wonders [for dry skin] it is critically important to not forget the dietary component, which can both cause and worsen all of these conditions.”
