Pull a face: Open your thumbs inside your mouth between your back teeth and the cheeks. Now hold your thumbs about half an inch away from your teeth and, in six small movements, pull back your cheek muscles against the resistance of your thumbs. Hold for five seconds before returning to the starting position and repeat the exercise.

Take antioxidant vitamins and eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Limit caffeine, and cut down as much as possible on high-glycemic-index foods such as cookies, candies, pies, cakes and non-whole-grain breads, all of which can cause fluid retention from excess insulin secretion.
FIBRE: Make sure that you're getting enough fibre. Nothing shows up on the skin faster than chronic constipation. I've seen many cases of acne clear beautifully once bowel function is normalised. One of the most effective ways to do this is simply by eating 1/4 cup of ground golden flaxseed each day. In addition to the 11-plus grams of fibre you'll get, flaxseeds are also loaded with skin-beautifying omega-3 fatty acids and phytoestrogens. Fruits and vegetables are also rich in fibre in addition to their antioxidants.
WATER: You may also see a dramatic improvement in your skin if you drink eight 8-oz glasses of water per day.
FISH: Fish, especially salmon, sardines, and swordfish, is rich in both the omega-3 fats, which are important for building healthy cell membranes everywhere in the body, and DMAE, the antioxidant cell stabiliser.
SOY: One of the most common benefits women notice after several months of supplementing their diets with significant amounts of soy protein (100-160 mg of soy isoflavones per day) is improvement in their skin tone, hair, and nails. Soy's phytoestrogen content helps strengthen collagen everywhere in the body, whether in facial skin, or bone.
