Top 10 Beauty Foods in Marie Claire Version

I already made a post  How to be Healthy and to look Beautiful:The Mediterranean Diet. And here is the list of top 10 Beauty Foods in Marie Claire version.

1. Wild salmon: A primo source for omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce skin inflammation, preventing redness, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. It’s also potent in antioxidants and vitamins B and D.

2. Low-fat yogurt: In one word, calcium. Good for strong bones, nails, and teeth. One cup of plain low-fat yogurt has more calcium than a glass of skim milk.

3. Oysters: The best source of zinc, period. Zinc helps build collagen, which supports the structure of skin and speeds up renewal and repair.

4. Blueberries: Full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories that prevent long-term cell damage.

5. Kiwifruit: Another good source of antioxidants, kiwis are also a great source of vitamin C and potassium, all which help prevent wrinkles.

Scarlett Johansson Talks About Makeup And Skincare And Shares Her Top Beauty Products

I am sure that you all know that Scarlett Johansson  is a spokeswoman for Dolce and Gabanna. Have you seen their Fall 2009 and Holiday 2009 Collections by the way? And did you know that this September their new perfume Rose the One will be available ! It’s all about roses but also blackcurrant, ambrette seed, lily of the valley, pink grapefruit, mandarin, Madonna lily, litchy, peony, sandalwood, musk, vanilla. It will be available in 30, 50 and 75ml

Platinum, brunette, or strawberry blond? The red carpet chameleon always keeps Hollywood guessing

Scarlett Johansson

Over the course of their careers, most actresses will log more hours in the makeup chair than in front of the camera. But inquire about their personal beauty habits, and nine out of 10 will cop to little more than a wimpy slick of ChapStick and that old chestnut, “Lots and lots of water.” Scarlett Johansson, on the other hand, swaps makeup tips with a junkie’s enthusiasm (and lingo): eye shadow compacts are “quads”; a favorite lipstick is “creamy, not too slippery, but really opaque”; premieres and awards shows—where most actors play it safe—are the perfect excuse to “switch things up and try something new.” Who better to play a modern Marilyn in ads for Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up? The predictably luxe, high-wattage new collection fairly screams, “ChapStick? Puh-lease.”

First things first: that skin.

I’m 24, so I have the same breakouts as everybody else. I never go to bed with makeup on, even if I come home at 4 a.m. My skin’s sensitive, so I have to use things without fragrance, like Cetaphil. And I clean my makeup brushes once a week. People don’t realize how dirty their sponges and stuff are! Bacteria—that’s what makes you break out. And I never really use moisturizer.

Excuse me?

Yeah. Someone once told me that it’s better to not use creams every day and just let your skin do its thing. I do use masks, though. I alternate between Jurlique’s Purifying Mask, which feels kind of leafy and organic but is really good, and a hydrating one like the Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Mask.

What if one of these alleged skin problems strikes?

Ugh, gosh. It’s always such a disaster. If it’s a swollen blemish or my eyes are puffy, I use whatever’s in my freezer. It’s not uncommon to see me before a premiere with a bottle of Ketel One stuck to my eyelid!

Does the recent brunette make you feel more serious?

With the hair color, I got a college degree! It comes in the bottle! [Laughs] No, it doesn’t make me feel any different. But
