As the Stopping the Heat, 14th solar term, passed, average temperature gradually goes down day by day. However, dry air and sunshine in early autumn may shrivel our skin. Skin care products that clean, soften and moisturize skin is highly recommended. Besides, certain kinds of food we may take in every day can also help with healthy skin.

Glutinous rice is believed to be capable to nourish yin. Radish and duck are commonly stewed together, letting out their coolness and sweetness in nature. Foods and herbs that have similar nourishing functions are lilium bulbs (baihe in pinyin Chinese), fish, kelp, celery, spinach, sesame, soy milk and dairy products.

In general, a well-balanced diet needs various kinds of vegetables and fruits, especially those of rich fiber. Ample times of mastication for each bite are helpful to digestion and absorption.
