As seen in Woman’s World magazine! Getting younger-looking skin is as easy as getting more magnesium in your diet! A water-bearing mineral, magnesium plays an important role in keeping skin plump and hydrated. And research shows that the mineral is also necessary for the creation of enzymes that heal wrinkle-causing free-radical damage. To get the benefits, aim to enjoy 400 mg of magnesium from natural sources such as almonds (320 mg in 1/2 cup), dark chocolate (256 mg in 4 oz), or sunflower seeds (300 mg in 1/4 cup).
For the more than 50% of women over age 50 who have thinning hair, help is here! One of my favorite ways to combat sparse strands is with rosemary. The herb contains rosmarinic acid, which has been shown to boost circulation to the scalp and promote hair growth as effectively as minoxidil. To get the benefits: Add 4 Tbs. of dried rosemary to 4 cups of boiled water. Steep for 40 minutes, then strain the brew into a large spray bottle and add 4 Tbs. apple cider vinegar; refrigerate. Spritz onto the scalp once or twice a week after shampooing.
