TIP 5: Watch your sodium and protein intake"I always tell my clients to watch what they eat when they are traveling or working a lot," says Lancer, as "salt reduction is critically important for healthy skin." Why? Salt decreases the water intake of your internal organs, and when your organs are dehydrated, they suck the water out of your skin and leave you with sallow, dry, cracked skin, he says. So, if you're grabbing quick food while on the run, pay extra attention to nutritional labels. Protein intake is also essential for healthy, youthful skin, says Lancer. He recommends making protein about 40 percent of your dietary intake. Why? "Amino acids in the blood stream stimulate collagen and elastin production," he says.
