SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - It's all about nutrition. That was the topic of discussion during a recent segment of Good Morning Utah.

According to nutrition adviser Angela Martindale with Meals That, it's important to eat the right foods that provide the proper nutrients and add a natural hydration for our skin, the largest organ in our body.

In the summer months, Martindale says the skin needs extra care. Higher temperatures, dry conditions and sunburn cause problems for everyone.

Martindale says green, leafy vegetables, fruits, jicama, grapes and celery provide proper nutrients and water, and that the more hydration we put into our bodies, the healthier our skin can look and feel. Proper eating habits can reduce problems with acne, according to Martindale.

Martindale says that we can intake the proper nutrition, we just need to prepare. "Put these in a baggie, or in a cooler," she said. "Always have it with you."

Martindale also pointed out some foods to avoid, saying it's best to stay on a low glycemic diet.

Martindale also said that anything that could inflame your body, like starchy foods or sugar are best used in limited amounts or not at all.
