The Top 10 Beauty Foods

Dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, author of Forever Young, dishes on ten foods to eat to look delicious

1. Wild Salmon: It contains essential omega-3 fatty acids that keep skin supple, hair healthy, and nails strong.

2. Pistachios: Their high levels of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat help nourish the hair and scalp.

3. Watercress: The sulfur found in this peppery green will bring strength and shine to nails.

4. Cinnamon: This spice, rich in antioxidants, stimulates blood circulation, resulting in plumper skin.

5. Olive Oil: It's a healthy fat source that guards against inflammation, which can dull your dermis.

6. Green Tea: Antioxidants called polyphenols help combat complexion woes like rosacea and wrinkles.

7. Turmeric: This spice works as an anti-inflammatory, helping to heal sun-damaged skin.

8. Blueberries: Their phytochemicals (powerful antioxidants) keep fine lines and sagging at bay.

9. Dark Chocolate: Its do-it-all flavonols smooth the skin and decrease sun sensitivity.

10. Cantaloupe: For a dewy complexion, feast on this melon, which has hydrating vitamin C and beta-carotene.
