|Summertime Facts & Tips!
- Since the 1930's, research - and some anecdotal wisdom - has shown that vitamin C supplementation helps the body physiologically respond to heat stress. It reduces your likelihood of developing heat-related illnesses such as heat rash and heat exhaustion. It can also be used to treat heat rash that's already developed. Daily vitamin C supplementation also shortens the length of time it takes your body to adjust to a new hotter environment, known as heat acclimatization.
- Preliminary research also indicates that vitamin C may be promising as a natural anti-histamine, as well as a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin C may help lessen the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis, possibly most effective when combined not only with your current hay-fever medication, especially with quercetin, a plant-derived flavonoid (also found in red wine, tea and olive oil, as well as in berries and other darkly pigmented fruits and vegetables) that may help prevent your body from producing histamine.
- Additionally, vitamin C's antioxidant effects may help the body protect itself from cell damage by encouraging the production of collagen and the growth of new tissue. It also helps your tissue make repairs to itself. These antioxidant benefits may help protect your skin from sun damage, including photo-aging. Vitamin C is sometimes used topically to reduce the harmful effects of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays on the skin, and when you combine C with another vitamin (vitamin E) the pair may help prevent sunburns.
- Vitamin E has antioxidant benefits that help protect skin from UV damage when you use it topically before applying sunscreen, both before sun exposure and after you've been out in the sun.
- Similar to the anti-allergy benefits vitamin C, when used with your existing seasonal allergy therapy, vitamin E may help reduce the severity of seasonal allergies (specifically nasal symptoms) and asthma. Vitamin E shows promise for calming the parts of the immune system that activate when you have an allergic response.

|Here are some nourishing foods to keep your skin looking its very best this summer:
- Almonds contain omega-3 fats, protein, vitamin E, calcium and zinc, all nutrients to keep your skin looking healthy. Other nuts, such as hazelnuts and walnuts, will also keep you skin soft and smooth this summer.
- Avocados contain vitamins A, C and E, iron, potassium, niacin, mono-unsaturated healthy fat and protein. In fact, avocados contain more vitamin E than any other fruit. Vitamin E is especially helpful in neutralizing cell-damaging free radicals.
- Blueberries, along with other types of berries and fruits, contain antioxidants that help fight harmful free radicals in our body. Cell-damaging free radicals can harm our body and skin. Blueberries are also loaded with vitamin C, which is important for the synthesis of collagen, a protein that helps keep skin elastic.
- Cucumbers - Does placing sliced cucumbers over your eyes really help reduce those bags? Yup! Cucumbers are used to treat wrinkles and reduce inflammation. After that summer bash, your eyes may look a little puffy and tired. Place sliced cucumbers over your eyelids for 10 to 20 minutes to reduce inflammation.
- Flaxseed contains omega-3 fatty acids, a type of essential fatty acid that must be obtained from the diet. Omega-3 fats contain the essential fat alpha linolenic acid (ALA), which helps smooth, moisturize and protect the skin.
- Olive oil is rich in mono-unsaturated fat, which helps keep skin cells in excellent shape, making you look younger! It also contains skin saving antioxidants such as vitamin E, polyphenols and beta-carotene.
- Pineapple contains fruit acids called alpha-hydroxy acids that help peel dead skin cells from the face. Try using it to make a face mask!
- Salmon is not only good for your heart and waistline - it’s also good for your skin. Salmon and other cold-water fish, such as mackerel and tuna, contain healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which help add shine to your complexion and replenish moisture in dry skin. These omega-3 fatty acids also help reduce the inflammation that leads to skin disorders.
- Orange vegetables, including sweet potato, carrots and squash, are high in the antioxidant beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A is a major player in the growth, development and maintenance of healthy looking skin. Without vitamin A, our skin would be rough, dry, flaky and NOT wrinkle-free!
- Tomatoes contain collagen-building vitamin C, beta-carotene and lycopene, a plant chemical that may help reduce damage from the sun's rays. Lycopene is also found in tomato-based products, watermelon and pink grapefruit.
- Water! Staying hydrated is one of the most important factors in achieving healthy and younger looking skin. Be sure to drink plenty of fresh, distilled water – about eight glasses per day. Avoid dehydrating foods and beverages with caffeine (cola, chocolate drinks, coffee, and tea) and alcohol.
- Zinc-rich foods - Zinc is an important mineral that is involved in the production of collagen and helps to repair skin damage. Zinc-rich foods include oysters, liver (beef, lamb, veal), lean beef, lamb and beans. Other foods that contain zinc are milk, cheddar cheese and other dairy products, roasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds, peanuts, turkey (dark meat) and chicken. Zinc is absorbed more readily from animal sources so, balance plant with animal sources to get more zinc.
