Start the day off right with a protein-packed meal to keep your blood sugar stable -- it will help fight acne, wrinkles, and rashes, because blood sugar levels that swing wildly have been linked to skin inflammation and the breakdown of collagen. Plus, you’ll be less tempted to scarf down the leftover holiday cookies around 10 am.
