Have You Heard of Red Gac?

I haven't always taken care of my skin. Wait, cross that out. I still don't take care of my skin the way I should. I like the way it feels to lay in the sun, and I like to have a tan. One of these days I'm going to look in the mirror and wonder if there's anything I can do to fix the damage I have already done.

Tonight I've been reading about this R.G. Skin Revitalizer, and I'm wondering if this might be the stuff. R.G. stands for Red “Gâc” (Momordia Cochinchinemis Spreng), a native fruit of Vietnam. This fruit, which grows to the size of a cantaloupe, is very common all over Asia and has long been valued for its medicinal qualities. People grow it in their gardens and eat it with rice. It has an abundance of beta carotene, lycopene, and other antioxidants. The R.G. Skin Revitalizer, taken as a dietary supplement, is supposed to support healthy skin from the inside out. It's supposed to boost the immune system and help skin cells to rejuvenate. What makes it different from other exotic fruit supplements is the fat in the fruit pulp, which is essential for the absorption of the antioxidants.

I've heard a lot about the importance of antioxidants, and this sounds like a very concentrated and natural way to get some good ones. I still should probably stay out of the sun and find a good moisturizer.
