Eating a Healthy, Well-Rounded Diet Can Be the Best Recipe for Healthy Skin

NEW YORK, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The old adage "you are what you eat" not only applies to our overall health and nutrition, but how our skin looks and feels as well. As the largest organ in the body, our skin can benefit from the same nutrition we get from foods that have a positive effect on our heart and other major organs. In fact, new research suggests that eating foods rich in protein and certain vitamins and minerals might provide valuable anti-aging effects.

Speaking today at the American Academy of Dermatology's Skin Academy (Academy), dermatologist Susan C. Taylor, MD, FAAD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University in New York, N.Y., and clinical assistant professor of dermatology and associate faculty of the School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pa., discussed the importance of eating nutritious foods for optimal skin health and how foods can aggravate common medical skin conditions.

"While there's no mistaking how our diet affects our overall health, we're just beginning to understand how certain foods -- or lack thereof -- can impact our skin's health," said Dr. Taylor. "In addition, studies show that some food and beverages can even worsen common skin conditions and cause allergic reactions that manifest on the skin."

Good Food, Good Skin

Perhaps the simplest way to maintain a healthy, balanced diet and ensure the skin is getting optimal nutrition from the foods we eat is to follow the recommendations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Daily Food Guide, commonly referred to as the food pyramid. These include:

-- Choosing and eating at least three ounces of whole grain breads,

cereals, rice, crackers or pasta.

-- Eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, including more dark

green and orange vegetables
