Don't you love the rosy cheeks and healthy glow you get after you go for a run?
I have been known to go into those expensive cosmetic-up stores and ask the salesperson, "Do you have the kinda' of blush that will make me look like I just finished running about five miles!"
|"Nope, not in this store hunny!"|
|No spray tan for me, Snooki!|
The fruits and veggies that promote rosy skin tones are tomatoes, carrots and red peppers. Carotenoids, the phytochemicals that give these fruits and veggies their distinct color, not only help the body fight sickness, but also help give you a rosy-glow!
And to get a smoother, more plump look to your skin, head for an alligator pear, otherwise known as avocado. I love avocado for its creamy texture and also because it is a great source of Vitamins B, E and K. Avocado also provides essential fatty acids which helps increase HDL(good cholesterol), while lowering LDL(bad cholesterol).
And how about wrinkles? These are cute wrinkles ....
When they are on my face, they're not so cute!
Strawberries are also high in Vitamin C, and they contain ellagic acid, which according to this same research, can increase your skin's ability to hold moisture and fade dark spots.
|Wow! I REALLY love Strawberries!|
Since I want to get every ounce of out of my 'looks like I just ran about five miles', rosy-cheek-plumping, wrinkle-fighting, moisture-adding, dark spot-fading fruits and veggies, I'm going for the organic, non-pesticide-ridden types to make sure I'm healthy inside and out!
