CLEARWATER, Fla. — Anti inflammation complexion diet can not only trim the face and get rid of puffy eyes, but it can also soothe, smooth and heal a dull or troubled complexion. After all, we all know that nibbling the wrong foods and sipping on the wrong beverages can puff our faces and ruin our complexions.
Anti inflammation complexion diet focuses on the most important complexion foods, which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, the good fats, says beauty expert Vicki Southard, creator of The Face Wrap facial rejuvenation system. (www.facewrap.com) The best foods to get rid of puffy eyes are those that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, including coldwater fish, walnuts, canola oil, leafy green vegetables and meat from free-range grass-fed livestock.
Why are omega-rich foods a must for a great looking complexion with no such thing as puffy eyes? Southard says the omega-3 fatty acids in the anti inflammation complexion diet are responsible for the health of the skin cell membrane.
Since the membrane is what influences the cells ability to hold water, having a nice, healthy membrane results in moister, softer and more wrinkle-free skin without puffy eyes, says Southard.
Southard says the need for omega-3 fatty acids in the anti inflammation complexion diet goes beyond merely reinforcing the cell membrane. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids help reduce the body’s production of inflammatory compounds — natural chemicals involved in the aging process that affect how healthy the skin looks and feels.
Here are Ms. Southards tips for the ideal anti inflammation complexion diet. Southard warns that this diet wont only trim down your face and get rid of puffy eyes. The omega-3 fatty acids will switch on your bodys fat burning mechanism, so you might need to buy a new wardrobe to go with your new, rejuvenated complexion.

1.Plenty of Omega-3. This is your secret weapon for moisturizing your complexion and softening your skin from the inside out. Omega-3 supplements like seed oil and fish oil give you the highest concentration of these essential fats.
2. Eat Fish. Salmon, sardines, anchovies and cod contain the highest levels of omega-3 and are the best for your beauty feast. Meat and poultry should be from grass-fed animals.
3. Fruits and Vegetables. Choose a variety. Blackberries and blueberries are powerful antioxidants. Eat lots of leafy greens plus squash, pumpkin and sweet potato for loads of vitamin A.
4. Avoid refined sugars, flours and wheat. They are known to trigger inflammatory and allergic reactions, which are harmful to the skin.
5. Plenty of pure water Help flush away metabolic waste from your skin cells by hydrating yourself with 8 glasses of pure water every day.
