Skin Food | Alimentation Peau

Here is a 3 day skin diet I recommend for everyone that was passed down to me by a dermatologist years ago:

Breakfast
  • Three-egg omelet and/or 4-6 oz. grilled salmon (not recommended: smoked salmon or lox on the three-day dietbecause of the salt intake)
  • 1/2 cup cooked oatmeal (not instant; cooked oatmeal is a great source of fiber and low glycemic carbohydrates)
  • 2-inch wedge of cantaloupe or 1/3 cup fresh berries. (cantaloupe is very hydrating to the skin and contains important antioxidants; blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries are also high in antioxidants)
  • No juice, coffee, or toast (if you normally drink large amounts of coffee, drink black or green tea to prevent caffeine withdrawal)
  • 8-12 oz. spring water
Lunch
  • 4-6 oz. grilled salmon (option: you can also use canned salmon and mix in a little mayo and fresh-squeezed lemon)
  • 2 cups green salad made with romaine lettuce or other dark leafy greens
  • Dressing: extra virgin olive oil and fresh-squeezed lemon to taste
  • 1 kiwi fruit or cantaloupe and berries
  • 8-12 oz. spring water
Snack
  • 1 apple
  • 2 oz. slice of turkey breast or 6 oz. plain yogurt
  • Small handful of hazelnuts, walnuts, or almonds (these are a great source of fatty acids
  • and folic acid)
Dinner
  • 4-6 oz. grilled salmon
  • Green salad, as described above
  • 1/2 cup steamed veggies (especially asparagus, broccoli, spinach, etc. No root vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots, beets, parsnips, etc.)
  • Cantaloupe and berries
  • 8-12 oz. spring water
Before-Bedtime Snack
  • 1 pear or apple
  • 2 oz. slice chicken or turkey breast or 6 oz. plain yogurt
  • Small handful of hazelnuts, walnuts, or almonds

Your skin will thank you for this. And your body. Enjoy!
