The ClearSkin Diet
Jeff classifies water as a food, and we agree. In fact it’s the one absolutely skin
Group 1 – Water!
Understandably water is not a ‘food group’ but it is put first for a very good reason. Your body is 60% water so it (and your skin) requires a steady supply.
Group 2 – Green leafy vegetables
(Arugula, Kale, Collard Greens, Brussel Sprouts, Chard, Romaine Lettuce and SPINACH!)
Why it’s necessary in your diet:
Lots of Vitamin A – fabulous anti-oxidant
Chlorophyll – clears bacteria and toxins from the digestive tract.
Zeaxanthin – (in cooked spinach) brings strong anti-oxidant properties.
Group 3 – Vitamin A and C-rich Fruits
(Oranges, Kiwi, Papaya, Lemon, Cantaloupe, Strawberries, Blueberries, Bananas)
What they have: Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Anti-Oxidants
Anti-oxidants in your diet, as mentioned rid your skin of free radical damage.
Vitamin A is a natural anti-acne vitamin and helps regenerate new skin.
Vitamin C also fights free radicals, increases collagen and reduces wrinkles.
Group 4 – Seafood
(Salmon, Tuna, Lobster, Crab, Shrimp)diet
What they have: Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Group 5 – Green Tea, Nuts
(walnuts, almonds) & Legumes (green beans, pinto beans, chickpeas)
Green Tea is loaded with anti-oxidants and fights inflammation.
Nuts and legumes are high in Vitamin E which is a strong anti-oxidant and wrinkle fighter. They also contain Zinc which is well known to help boost the immune system.
Ian: What do you think about this diet?
Yes, I know, we all agree on Group 1, but what about the rest?
