Purple is a good colour for you. . .
I've recently noticed just how many of our posts concern food - perhaps a result of blogging on an empty stomach? But it really is necessary to pay attention to what we're putting inside our bodies - not just on our skin. So many women (& men) who purchase from us are looking for that miracle cream/serum/potion in a jar that will magically make those lines & wrinkles disappear. But that's only part of the solution - your skin won't show improvement if you cover yourself in expensive topical products, then go home & chow down on Cheetos & a can of frosting for dinner. Help your skin battle free radicals (which break down collagen, which in turn leads to those aforementioned annoying lines & wrinkles) with a diet rich in antioxidants. If you find yourself in the grocery store, scratching your head because you can't find the "antioxidant" aisle, never fear: think purple. If you choose purple-coloured foods like blackberries, black currants, blueberries, wild blueberries, plums, purple figs, purple grapes, beets, purple eggplant, purple asparagus or purple cabbage, you'll be well on your way to getting those free radical-fighting antioxidants your skin needs.
