Personal Trainer Danette Allen shares the ageless beauty that can be found through these 8 super foods.
It sounds very simple, but over time–say 1 to 2 months–using these 8 super foods can make a dramatic difference in how you look and feel.
This has worked very well for many of my clients, but we don’t have time to share all their success stories, so let me quickly tell you my story.
I had bad adult on-set acne—It was terrible and unfortunately I still have a few scars from it. Anyway, it was very frustrating and I felt horrible about my skin and complexion. I tried all sorts of things to try and cure this from visiting special doctors and trying various skin care treatments. They all had little or no impact on my awful condition. I did realize that certain foods made my condition worse.
I wanted vibrant glowing skin and I wanted to minimize the inflammation on my face. I started using these “8 super foods” and within one month my acne was gone. I know my skin is not perfect, but these 8 super foods have made a huge difference for me on how I look and feel.
Besides all your dark multi colored fruits and vegetables these are the 8 super foods I highly recommend to prevent inflammation, improve your immune system, and give you vibrant glowing skin
