Our skin is the largest organ in our body. It’s our body glove, that protects our other organs from harmful elements. It is made up of three layers, epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue. Your skin helps regulate your body’s temperature, keeps fluids in your body, helps protect against infection, and with the oil glands in the skin, waterproofs the body. Like a car, we have to keep this organ running smoothly and in order to do so we must put the right nutrients in our body.

Goji berries have all the nutrients needed to protect your skin. These small red berries, have more beta carotene than carrots which protects your skin from sun damage. In some cases, Goji berries have also helped clear up acne.

The women of Tibet have used the Goji berries in their diet for years, making their skin healthy and radiant. With the abundance of antioxidants, these anti-aging berries, accelerate the healing process which keeps the skin looking and feeling younger. If you think about it, your skin will endure a lot of abuse over the years. Especially, as we age, our skin looses its ability to produce the elastin and collagen it needs to stay smooth thus causing wrinkles. The Goji berries, will help slow down the aging process so our skin will keep its elasticity and continue to protect our bodies. Sun exposure, can cause the most and irreparable damage to your skin over the years. It doesn’t matter what type of skin you have, you should always wear a sunscreen with at least a 15 sun protection factor (SPF), that protects against UVA and UVB rays. You want to eat a balanced diet, that includes Vitamin A, fruits that are high in antioxidants, such as Goji berries, low fat dairy products, and whole grain foods. There are certain healthy oils, that help lubricate your skin; extra virgin oils are the oils you want to use. Natural healthy foods, have the nutrients, and antioxidants, needed to help protect your skin for a lifetime. As long as you protect it from the outside and choose the right healthy foods, your skin will continue do its job protecting the other organs in your body.
