Spice up Your Diet for More Youthful-Looking Skin

You might already be aware of the impact different lifestyle factors have on aging and why skincare should be an important part of your daily routine no matter your age, but research has shown youthful-looking skin is about more than just regular exercise and getting a good night’s sleep. In addition to taking targeted nutritional supplements—such as Omega 3 or Super Berry Powder with Acai—and applying topical skincare, Dr. Perricone’s Three-Tier Solution also focuses on an anti-inflammatory diet. Providing your skin and body with the right nutrition is a key component to preserving a radiant, healthy-looking glow. Formulated with our proprietary Nrf2 Antioxidant Support Complex™, the Pre:Empt Series helps nourish your skin. Derived from a complex of Turmeric, Olive Leaf, Green Tea and Cress Sprouts, the Nrf2 Antioxidant Support Complex harnesses the antioxidant response that helps keep skin looking and feeling youthful. But did you know these same ingredients can easily be incorporated into your regular diet? This ultimately can result in additional anti-inflammatory benefits for both skin and body that may help pre:empt the first visible signs of aging. Spice up your daily routine with the recipe below. Golden Milk—an ancient Ayurvedic drink praised for its health benefits which include boosted immunity, regulated metabolism and antioxidant properties—is a delicious, simple way to get your daily dose of Turmeric.
