DERMATOLOGIST DAVID COLBERT, M.D. ON FOODS FOR THE SKIN

According to Dr. David Colbert skin is a matrix of proteins, water, and fats that needs a non-processed food supply for replenishment.  He suggests the following nibbles for the skin:

  • Almonds because they pack skin-plumping fats and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps offset UV damage.
  • Dark chocolate with a cacao content of 72% or more is rich in damage-fighting antioxidants as well.
  • Blueberries give a magic combo of antioxidants and collagen-protecting vitamin C.
