NYC and the Anti-Aging Diet

The Torricelumn Girls headed down to the big apple this week for the HBA Expo. We attended a few seminars to keep ourselves on top of the happenings in the beauty industry and to sharpen our social media skills. While the information gained is probably a bit too dry (but tres useful!) to share on the blog- we do want to share the most random fact of the expo:

Do you suffer from hyper-pigmentation? This is a major concern for women interested in anti-aging. If you do- stop eating limes!

Who knew? Limes are a cause of blotchy darkened skin. This random fact brought to light some interesting research on diet and how it affects the aging process. Just like the old adage ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away’ -well, now it’s 'An apple a day keeps the Botox away!' The message here is eat well, stay healthy, and look younger by eating a highly nutritious diet.

For more information on what to eat for an anti-aging diet, click here to read a very informative article on Women Fitness.  The basics are- maintaining a diet high in antioxidants, vitamin E, and water will keep you looking younger for longer.

We think it's time that the Torricelumn Girls start to adhere to this anti-aging diet, because while we were in NYC, we may have been eating cupcakes for lunch.
