Your skin is the largest organ of your body and it is the first defense to protecting us on a daily basis.  To provide yourself with enough antioxidants, these are the fruits that should be a regular part of your diet: blueberries, plums, blackberries and strawberries.

Salmon, walnuts, flaxseed and canola oil for omega-3 fatty acids also contributes to healthy and healthy looking skin.

Water is SO, SO important.  It is the one thing I don't think many really drink enough of.  If you are not drinking half your body weight, in ounces, per day, you are not drinking enough water. Water helps to move nutrients in and toxins out out of our body. It keeps us from getting dehydrated and keeps our skin looking fresh.

Green tea is also great for fighting inflammation.

To achieve healthy hair and nails maintain a healthy diet with enough protein. If you have brittle nails, take biotin supplements.  This also promotes strong healthy hair follicles.

Your nails take a beating every time you wash your hands.  Always use a good moisturizer after every hand wash to lubricate both your skin and your nails.

Regardless of your ethnicity, we all produce natural oils for our hair. You want to protect your hair's natural shine and natural oils by washing with lukewarm and NOT hot water.

I don't know about you, but it is just something about even hearing the words 'exercise' that just have a deflating effect on me.  Yes, I really understand the importance of exercise and that  I need to do it everyday to be healthy. However, once I get past my resistance, I always feel great after I exercise.  I feel alive and I feel like I can conquer the world after a great workout.

Here are a few exercises that might appeal to you that will help you firm up and look great in all of your summer outfits.  Best of all you will be healthier and you will feel so much better.

  • Swimming to help tone your entire torso and literally work every muscle in your body.
  • Tennis for sculpting arms, chest and back muscles
  • Biking for firming and toning calves, hamstrings and quadricepts
  • Walking to build strong leg muscles
  • Pilates to strengthen core muscles.

I hope that these tips will help you to have a successful Friday!
