LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Ah! You’re what you eat! We’ve all heard this mantra time and time again – but Healthy Hollywood can’t repeat it enough.
Need more evidence? Just look to Hollywood’s enviable fresh-faced stars, like Kate Hudson and Eva Mendes, who always seem to have a glowing complexion on and off the red carpet. Yes, good genes are key, but so is diet!
Both stars are fans of Dr. Nicholas Perricone, author of “Forever Young,” who has unlocked the secret to radiant, more youthful skin in three days! “The promise of a visible difference in your looks in three days may seem too good to be true. But if you eat the wrinkle-free way for even a short period of time, you will experience dramatic changes, not only in how you look, but how you feel,” states Dr. Perricone.
The superstar food of Dr. Perricone’s plan is salmon, which must be eaten twice a day for the ideal effect, which is an increased radiance and firmer skin. Healthy Hollywood advises, “Don’t walk – rush to the supermarket and stock up on wild salmon” – it will do wonders for your body and complexion.
Dr. Perricone’s Three-Day Nutritional Face-lift also helps eliminate puffiness, increases contours, and firms the jaw line. Still not convinced? Why not try it for yourself. Dr. Perricone shared with Healthy Hollywood his face-lift in your fridge.
