So we get it, good foods are good for you!… and they are good for your FACE!
It’s not rocket science to know that well-being is important and linked to what we eat. Can we turn what we eat into the story of our own radiant complexion? BECAUSE what you eat has everything to do with the condition of your complexion. So here are some of the little known jewels just waiting for you in your food basket
Dark Greens: (parsley spinach, broccoli and kale) These veggie miracle workers are associated with fewer wrinkles, especially crow’s-feet around the eyes. They are a source of omega-3s, the nutrient that our skin can’t get enough of.
Tomatoes, Red Peppers and other red delights: Because they are high in antioxidants and they fight sun damage from the inside out. You just can’t get enough of them.
Eggs: Always a good sources of protein, that helps to build collagen and keeps your blood sugar stable. Stabilizing sugar is important on so many levels and they help to contain breakouts.
Greens such as Green Beans: High levels of lutein mean these greens provide additional defense against damage caused by the Sun’s UV rays. These plant based veggies also support thick healthy hair and strong nails.
Baked Potatoes: Eat one baked potato (with the skin) to get 75% of your daily copper need.
This essential mineral works with vitamin C and zinc to produce the elastin fibers that support skin structure. Too little copper in your diet can reduce your skin’s ability to heal and cause it to become rigid and lifeless igniting acne, wrinkles, and rashes.
Avocados: This creamy, green fruit is abundant in essential oils and B-complex vitamins that nourish your skin, inside and out.
Mushrooms: This fungus isn’t just for soup! It’s rich in riboflavin, a B vitamin that’s vital to your skin. Riboflavin (vitamin B2) is involved in tissue maintenance and repair and improves skin blemishes caused by rosacea.
Mangoes & Pomegranates: Great for your complexion and high in antioxidants which help prevent premature ageing.
How about turning your shopping trip to a farmer’s market into glorious meals and snacks!
