Refueling Your Skin with Food

It's clear nutrition is important for your health. It's also important for feeding your skin.



I loved my summer skin. Our skin tends to get oily and that can help it feel soft and plump - the way all our cheeks should feel!


As that oil disappears in the fall, we are left to deal with repairing the damage our skin has endured after an entire season in the sun - which becomes much more visible without that natural oil.

A good deep cleaning will help! But so will eating these foods. Moisturize from the inside out!
