Q: Can I improve my complexion before the wedding?

A: Yes, it is possible.  The earlier you start, the better your chances are to have glowing skin on your wedding day. Even though you’ll be busy with all the wedding planning, now is not the time to neglect your eating habits. Pay close attention to your food selection. Remember…beautiful skin is healthy skin. A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, proteins and whole grains not only will enhance your energy but will also protect your immune system and improve emotional well-being. Be sure to begin each day with a hearty breakfast to provide energy. A balance of proteins, fats, and carbs will keep you fueled through the morning. Excellent choices include a spinach omelet, peanut butter and toast, or high-fiber cereal with low fat milk.For lunch, incorporate vegetables such as a spinach salad topped with turkey, and a chicken sandwich or a veggie burger. For dinner, wild-caught salmon boasts healthy omega-3 acid anti-oxidants, steamed broccoli provides phytonutrients, and whole wheat brown rice contains fiber. In addition, don’t forget to drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated and remember to exercise daily to help relieve stress, as well as for obvious physical health benefits.
