I recently came across this staggering statistic: Almost 66% of women don’t wash their face before going to bed. I found this to be surprising and also quite unfortunate since the evening is the most crucial time to wash.
I call it daylight protection. It is now well understood that both UVA and UVB rays are damaging to skin, that the damage is cumulative, and most of it occurs slowly over time, not just from going to the beach. UVA also goes through glass, so use a broad spectrum sunscreen every day, all year round.
THURSDAY, March 8 (HealthDay News) — The key to a rosy, healthy-looking complexion may be as simple as eating more fruits and vegetables, researchers say.
“We found that within a six-week period, fluctuation in fruit and vegetable consumption was associated with skin-color changes,” said lead researcher Ross Whitehead, from the School of Psychology at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
Not only did skin look healthier at the end of the study period, it was judged more attractive as well, he said. “Eat more fruits and veggies to improve your appearance,” he added.
Skin Diet: Fruits and Vegetable Can Improve Tone, Study Says

That’s the finding of a small, new study done in Scotland that suggests fruit and vegetable consumption changes the redness and yellowness of people’s skin. And those hue changes, the researchers claim, are linked to increased attractiveness.
