The Nutrients Your Skin Needs Now
Your Skin Needs: To Banish Blemishes
Eat: Water-containing fruits and vegetables.
Everything we do -- even breathing -- saps our cells of detoxifying fluids. Experts suggest drinking enough fluids to replace those that we excrete throughout the day. "Water also helps flush out impurities that could lead to acne blemishes as they exit through skin," says Dr. Graf. Even better: A study in the August 2006 edition of Skin Research and Technology proved that drinking more water, mineral water in particular, can also moisturize the surface layer of skin for a constant glow.
Aim For: 2 liters a day.
