Healthy diet may be the elixir of youth
The elixir of eternal youth may not be so hard to find after all. Kimberly Snyder, author of The Beauty Detox Solution, recently told USA Today that there are some everyday diet tips that can help keep skin stay young and fresh, and keep hair glossy and bright.
Snyder recommends that people stop drinking soda because it can lead to permanent teeth damage and add a lot of calories to any meal. Instead, she suggests relying on less sugary beverages such as water or milk. Also, adding a dash of certain herbs such as cilantro and parsley can not only be a classy touch to any dinner, but can help cleanse the body by extracting metals and other toxins.
Snyder's number one fruit is a red pepper, which is a valuable source of vitamin A and E. These nutrients help prevent cell damage, premature aging and inflammation. Other fresh fruits and vegetables can give hair a vibrant shine.
