There's a big trend in nutrition of looking to our ancient ancestors for clues as to what might be the ideal diet for humankind. The idea that natural might be better also has many people raiding their pantries looking for solutions to their skin care issues.
Many common foods have important nutrients that promote healthy skin when included in the diet. Some also have features that make them ideal components in a skin care routine when applied directly to the skin. These types of foods have the ability to exfoliate, soothe, moisturize, heal, protect and nourish all types of skin. Skin care companies around the world are “going green” and feature tinctures, extracts and oils from all manner of herbs, fruits and vegetables in their formulas.
