Have you ever gone on a low fat diet?

Although eliminating most fats from your diet could lead to better health, it could also cause your skin to become dull, dry, and downright flaky.

If that doesn't sound like the look you are going for, read on, my friend. The following is a small list of fats we want to keep in our diets in moderation (for our skin's sake) and those we should eliminate.

The Good
Polyunsaturated and Monounsaturated Fats 
Some examples include:
Olive Oil

The Bad
Saturated Fats and Trans Fats
Some examples include:
Meat Fat
Fried Food
Baked Goods

Of the Good fats above, Salmon is my favorite. The essential fatty acids and Omega-3s in Salmon can help reduce wrinkles and nourish the skin, leading to a radiant glow!

Remember, eliminating all fats from your diet could dry out your skin and lead to a dull appearance. And I know you prefer to glow, am I right? Stick to the good fats, in moderation, to achieve better health and keep your beautiful skin glowing!
