Happy New Year! Hopefully, one of your resolutions is to take better care of your skin this year. It is after all, the largest organ of our bodies. Our skin helps to keep us warm or cool us down and protects us by helping to keep out bacteria. So, we should try to protect our skin! We talk a lot about taking care of our skin by moisturizing it and applying sunscreen regularly, which continues to be vital to skin health. The health of our skin also relies on the nutrients that we put into our body. Eating well is equally beneficial to our skin! Here is a list of some foods that positively impact both our overall health and the health of our skin.

Avocados- This fruit is placked with Biotin, which helps keep your hair, skin and nails strong. They also contain a high amount of vitamin E and the good-for-you fats that help keep the skin supple and moist!

Carrots- This delicious vegetable is packed with beta-carotene which is converted into Vitamin A in our bodies! You may have heard that Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that can help fight free radical formation in the skin. Therefore, it help decrease sun damage. Topical forms of vitamin A (also called retinols) are used to treat many skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis and also used as a powerful anti-aging product.

Kiwi- This furry fruit contains vitamin C which helps keep the skin bright and wrinkle free. It can encourage your skin to repair itself better and can even stimulate some collagen growth. Collagen is vital to the elasticity of our skin!

Radishes- This veggie is packed with vitamin A and C, phosphorus, zinc, folate, calcium, selenium and silicon. Some of which helps fight free radical formation on the skin and some just help with a healthy natural glow.

Green Tea- Green tea is full of free radical fighting antioxidants and Polyphenols.

Oysters- Though not liked by all, oysters contain a lot of zinc, which aids in skin cell renewal!

Almonds/Walnuts- Nuts contain omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E, all which keep your hair shiny and your skin smooth and soft.

Tomatoes- You are probably aware that tomatoes have lycopene, which is a great antioxidant for the skin. They also contain asthaxanthin and carotenoids, which help maintain skin elasticity.

Eggs- Lutein is the nutrient present in eggs that is great for the eyes but, lutein also maintains skin elasticity.

Artichokes- Artichokes contain a ton of antioxidants and aid with skin luminosity.

Blueberries- Delicious and they contain tons of antioxidants to help fight premature skin aging!

These are just some examples of healthy foods that can provide positive benefits to your skin! Some foods are more tasty than others... enjoy!

That is the question. You have probably heard of BB creams and more recently, CC creams. BB stands for beauty balm and CC stands for color correction. BB and CC creams have become very popular recently. In my opinion, they are an excellent addition to your daily skin care regimen. These creams are hybrid creams. Not only do they contain a light tint to provide light to medium coverage, they also contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to protect your skin from UV rays. In addition, they contain anti-aging ingredients like antioxidants, peptides, and moisturizers. You can even use them in combination with other anti-aging creams and serums.

Beware though, each cream has a different texture and feel. You can test different BB and CC creams out at cosmetic counters and cosmetic stores. Some creams do not contain enough sunblock to protect your skin. Remember to check labels when you are evaluating a BB/CC cream and look for zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in combination of at least 6%.

BB creams are my secret to great looking skin. They help protect, renew and even my skin tone while I'm wearing it! So, to answer the question to BB or not to BB, I say, yes to BB!
