Science-Backed Anti-Aging Foods & Herbs for Youthful Skin
Although wrinkles are part of a natural and normal aging—and certainly should not make one feel less of themselves—wrinkly skin, nevertheless, is undesirable for most. Some may consider wrinkles a sign of strength and endurance, but most consider them aesthetically displeasing. For the latter group, there is hope for renewed skin. You see, the pathology of aging may be objective, but the rate of aging is very subjective. Meaning, our actions—specifically sleep habits, activity levels, stress, and of course nutritional habits—all affect the quality and rate of how we age. In fact, there is clinical research and scientific evidence that indicates the ability to delay aging and even reverse skin conditions through proper nutrition. The various nutrients in our foods can help with everything from wrinkles and sagging skin to pigmentation issues and more.

9 Toxic Reasons to Ditch Your Conventional Skincare Products
One of the first rules of holistic skin care is, “if you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin.” Therefore it becomes of utmost importance to carefully observe the labels of your skincare products, just as you would your food. By now, most of us have confronted the fact that the FDA has not done the most honest job of regulating what is considered safe for consumption – this also applies to skincare and beauty products. The truth is, most commercial skincare and hygiene products are incredibly toxic. There are literally thousands of chemicals in commercial products, all of which are absorbed directly into the bloodstream once applied to your skin. You might be wondering how it is possible for unnatural and harmful ingredients to make their way into these products. The simple answer is that large corporations actually have the ability to freely use any raw ingredients they like without government evaluation or approval. In short, the skincare industry is highly unregulated. 
Be Careful What You Put on Your Skin
Not many people make the connection between their skin quality and the health of their liver.

The Magic of Plant-Derived Stem Cells
Throughout the centuries, people have stumbled upon several natural ways to keep their skin looking young. One of the most recent and profound findings in natural, anti-aging remedies, is the discovery of plant stem cells. Using our modern technology, cells can be extracted from plants and cultivated in the laboratory to multiply their molecular potency by 1000 times to bring out the highest concentration possible, which allows the final product to give instant results. In the most basic sense, plant stem cells are literally extracted stem cells of plants. Moreover, a stem cell is postulated to be responsible for the renewal and regeneration of tissues (cells create tissues, tissues create organs, and organs create organisms).  Because of their regenerative abilities, stem cells are some of the most important in the body, without them, our cells would not renew. The more stem cells the body has, the faster and quicker the regeneration process.

What Makes a Night Cream Effective for You?
We all take our skin for granted each day, thinking it will just take care of itself. Even though you wash regularly, eat healthily and exercise, the truth is that your skin cannot do it all and needs some help so it stays looking its best, feeling great and maintains good health and strength. Even if you take steps to care for your skin, you still must deal with all the chemicals, pollutants and allergens in the air around you each day, which can clog and wear down your skin. Add that to the chemicals in much of the food you eat, the makeup you use and perhaps even your soaps and cleansers, and your skin must fight more each day than you realize. That is why taking steps at the end of each day can be important to you, and why a night cream can help make a difference for you.

One of Andy's High Nutrition Meals
I'm not going to be winning any food-plating competitions anytime soon but let's focus on the important part, the nutrition.  When I want to give my digestive system a break after eating a lot of meat or fish protein, I will go with softer protein, like eggs, for a few days. I really believe (barring any allergies or food sensitivity issues) that pasture raised - organic eggs should be categorized as a superfood. As you will notice below, the yolks are still intact by cooking them sunny side up. This retains the great fatty acid composition and mineral content and preserving the vital nutrients that good pastured egg yolks contain.
