Superfoods for Glowing Skin
Raisins – These sweet little treats are packed with resveratrol since they are just dried red grapes. Need a reminder of the benefits of resveratrol, read this! It is an antioxidant that slows down the aging process. Look for Monukka raisins if you can but either way get them organic!
Pomegranate – This red seeded fruit contains ellagic acid that help you skin heal quickly. Did you know it is a natural sunscren? Drink pomegranate juice to boost your UV light protection by 25%, pretty cool! You can also add fresh pomegranate juice to your sunscreen for additional protection. Pomegranates are filled with powerful antioxidants.
Olives and Olive Oil – I <3 olives!! Olives should be purchased raw for the best nutritional benefits. Next time you eat an olive or put some olive oil on your salad know that it contains oleic oil. Oleic oil will help plump your skin making wrinkles and lines less noticeable. Nice!
Green Tea – Skin cells age, sad I know! As they get older they don’t regenerate as often when we are young, which gives you a dull, sallow complexion. Green tea helps your cells live longer, for a younger more radiant you! It also helps your collagen fight off free radicals and protects against sun damage.
Carrots – A great snack! Carrots are an amazing source of beta-carotene, this helps prevent your skin from prematurely aging and can even reverse any damage your skin has know!
