This week: Foods for BEAUTY.
Here are 4 foods I keep in my kitchen for BEAUTIFUL SKIN…
One reason olive oil is a powerful beauty food is because of its anti-inflammatory monounsaturated fats.A study analyzed the diets of over 1,200 women and found a higher consumption of olive oil [more than 2 teaspoons a day] was associated with fewer signs of aging and wrinkles compared to those who ate less than 1 teaspoon a day.Pro-tips: Scramble your eggs in olive oil, massage your kale 🌿 in olive oil, and add olive oil to baked goods like these fig & flax bars.
2. SWEET POTATOES
Research suggests people who eat foods rich in carotenoids [think orange produce & leafy greens] are perceived to look healthier & more attractive! Carotenoids are yellowish pigments that actually tint skin a golden, healthy hue.💥
Pro-tips: Enjoy sweet potato toast for breakfast, snack on kale chips, or make sweet potato nachos for dinner.
Vitamin C rich foods [think broccoli & strawberries] stimulate collagen production and stabilize the collagen you already have. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, which helps fight free radical damage & wrinkles.
Pro-tips: Enjoy broccoli salad as a lunch or dinner side, dip broccoli in peanut sauce as a snack, or dip strawberries in healthy nutella as an after dinner treat.
It’s not just a myth! This study found drinking 8 extra cups of water daily for 1 month positively impacts skin health.
Pro-tips: Drink hot lemon water along side your usual AM coffee, it’s my favorite morning ritual! Here are 6 more ways to hit your daily water targets. Hip, hip hydration! 💦
Try a DIY Golden Turmeric Facial. Study after study demonstrate how TURMERIC helps with acne, acts as an anti-aging cream, and brightens skin. #foreveryoung
