With summertime bringing on thoughts of ice cream and milkshakes, it's only fitting that we discuss something that - while often overlooked - all too often has an adverse effect on the skin: diet. As a http://www.globalskincareproducts.com - skincare company specializing in ethnic concerns, we deeply believe in the necessity and efficacy of the right skincare routine. But unfortunately so many of us still don't recognize the undeniable link between what we put in our bodies and what eventually appears on our face.
Smart food choices will make a world of difference in your skin's appearance this summer. Need a new healthy skin recipe for the summer? Try making homemade tomato sauce! Tomatoes are rich in skin-friendly ingredients such as lycopene - a powerful antioxidant also found in watermelon. The following recipe - from wholeliving.com - is an easy delicious way to enjoy skin-friendly fare all summer long.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 medium red onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
12 ounces (1 can) diced tomatoes in juice
3 tablespoons dry red wine
1/2 teaspoon oregano, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crumbled
coarse salt, to taste
1. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 7 minutes.
2. Stir in tomatoes and juice, wine, oregano, and basil. Simmer 8 minutes or until lightly thickened. Season with salt to taste.
