TIP OF THE WEEK

CLEAR UP THAT SKIN

No, eating chocolate won't necessarily give you zits. Neither will

popping peanuts, which are high in oil. But there are certain foods and

minerals that have been scientifically proven to do some epidermal good.

* Eat salmon. Its omega-3 fatty acids helps thin the junk that clogs

pores and can also strengthen the liver, which in turn can arm you from

breakouts. If you need to watch your iodine and prefer less-salty

sources, try eating lake trout and wheat germ, which are also rich in

omega-3s.

* Take your vitamin C. They carry antioxidants that defend the body

from harmful free radicals that can cause wrinkles and other skin no-nos.

* Drink lots of water. Gulping down eight 8 ounce glasses of the clear

stuff will help your body get rid of toxins.
