  • Eat baked or grilled salmon twice a week. Its omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins reduce aging free radicals.
  • Limit juice, soda, and sugar-sweetened beverages. They can add excess sugar and “empty calories”. 
  • Using daily gentle scrubs and weekly purifying masks can help keep your pores clean your skin fresh. 
  • If you have oily skin, use a water-based skin moisturizer. 
  • You can use a hair dryer to heat your eyelashes curler. The warmth of the eyelash curler will help curl your lashes more efficiently. 
  • On long commutes or shopping trips, pack some fresh fruit, cut-up vegetables, and low-fat string cheese sticks to snack on. 
  • Just one super-sized fast-food meal of a sandwich, fries, and soda can have more calories, fat, and added sugar than you need in an entire day. 
  • Eat plenty of tomatoes, which are rich in vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium, all are great ingredients for beautiful and youthful skin. 
  • Mousse on your dry hair will make it look more dull. Try this: use a blow drying lotion or thickening lotion instead of mousse. 
  • Always curl your lashes, using an eyelash curler, prior to applying mascara. 
  • Choose extra lean ground beef. The label should say at least “90% lean”. 
  • Eat 4-5 small meals a day instead of 2-3 big meals. Dinner should be your last meal of the day. 
  • Carbohydrates and proteins have 4 calories per gram. Fat has 9 calories per gram. Alcohol has 7 calories per gram.
  • Remember to apply lotion, cream or baby oil after each bath. It will help retain your needed skin moisture. 
  • Boneless skinless chicken breast and turkey cutlets are the leanest poultry choices.
