Look Younger Naturally

Hey ladies, I know that we are ALL interested in maintaining our youthful appearances without having to get our Lil Kim knifed up swag on (and please know that if you are down for the knifed up swag that I WILL TALK ABOUT U!) so here are a few suggestions that I pulled out of my magic designer handbag of tricks:

Instead of a skin peel:
Chow down daily on 5 servings of green, leafy vegetables like spinach, broccoli, and asparagus. They contain plenty of Vitamin A, which helps promote tissue growth and repair.

To put off a face-lift:
Eat two servings a week of fish (salmon or sea bass) that contains Omega-3 fatty acids. This anti-inflammatory strengthens cell membranes and generate muscle - so skin won;t sag.

As good as face cream:
Drinking 4 to 5 cups of green tea a day pumps the body with antioxidants. Plus, using cold green tea as toner helps ward of pollutants and reduces the appearance of lines.

Better than botox:
Grapefruits, lemons, and oranges are chock-full of Vitamin C - which helps keep skin strong, resilient, and wrinkle free. Studies recommend that women should have 75 mg a day.
*or try Mary Kay Day & Night Solution aka "Botox in a bottle"! (shamless plug)

Forget injections:
Pomegranates and berries are high in antioxidants, which shield the body from free radicals and help skin retain its luster. Include at least 1 1/2 cup serving per day.
