All through the winter, you dream of the sizzling summer season, when the sun, delicately reveals the radiant beauty of your supple skin and gives you a healthy glow. You imagine the time when you’re able to take off your heavy coat with winter scarf and hat, when looking out your frosted window that depicts wintry weather filled with cold icicles on the trees and soft snow on the ground.

You delight in wearing light clothing, shorter skirts if you’re female and short-sleeve shirts with tank tops during the hot summer months. You long for the warm feel of the sun and refreshing breeze on your skin and want a glowing complexion that indicates thriving health, a way off from a pale washed out winter complexion.


Your Skin Can Be Clogged with Dead Cells

You may not think of your skin as an organ like your heart and lungs; nevertheless, it's considered the largest organ in your body. It’s a cleansing organ that serves as a protective covering with pleasant characteristics that help to define your unique features. Your skin will excrete about a pound of bodily waste and toxins through your sweat glands. It sheds dry skin layers, in addition, to regulate your body temperature.

When your skin pores become clogged with dead cells your skin loses its capacity to eliminate the daily toxic buildup, such as, uric acid and elasticity. The detoxifying load falls upon your delicate kidneys, and your liver to eliminate this increasing load of toxins that can cause them to become overworked. This causes a slowing down of your cell regeneration process and oxidation of all your precious cells.


Your Body Breathes Through Your Skin, So You Need Extra Water and Should Eat Healthy Fruits and Veggies for Vibrant Skin

Did you know your body also breathes through your skin by absorbing oxygen and exhaling the carbon dioxide that forms in your tissues? When your skin is healthy, it can aid your body to function properly and helps prevent premature aging.

When your skin is dry, itchy or easily irritated, there is a fair chance you need to eat more foods with essential fatty acids in your diet to plumb up the fat content of your skin to make it turn into smooth, soft skin. Drink more water and eat foods containing specific skin care vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin A and all the B vitamins.

Your skin will look radiant when you regularly eat foods that contain flax-seed, walnuts, and sunflower oils. You must also eat less of deep-fried, fatty foods that contain Trans Fatty-Acids, which promote free-radical damage to your underlying skin tissue.

What Your Skin Craves Most

It’s more efficient to obtain needed vitamins in authentic foods. Natural and nutrient dense foods provide the best nutrition for your skin. Contrary to synthetic vitamins that will overtax your liver and kidneys with mega doses of vitamins that require heaps of processing to leave your body. Man made vitamins make the color of your urine dark, yellow or orange. This is a signal you are overworking your organs, a sure thing which eventually leads to a mechanical breakdown of your bodily systems and skin cells.

The vitamin C content in leafy vegetables and fruits such as kiwi, strawberries and fresh-squeezed orange juice naturally feed the collagen of your skin. Collagen is the elastic cement that holds the cells of your body together and keeps your skin-tight, free from wrinkles and flabby skin. You must ultimately get vitamin C from fruits and vegetables because your body does not know how to synthesize this most powerful vitamin. You will know when you are lacking in vitamin C, because, your gums will tend to bleed when you floss and brush your teeth, and then the collagen in your skin will start to break down and lose its elasticity and become lifeless and also begin to sag.
