Eat Your Way to Glowing Youthful Skin

Dear Friends, 

Take note of your plate the next time you eat. What colors do you see? Eating colorful fruits and veggies especially red and orange varieties have been proven to aid in a glowing youthful complexion! They all contain a pigment called Carotenoid

Our bodies turn Carotenoids into Retinol or Vitamin A and have fantastic benefits for your skin and also your body. Skin benefits of vitamin A are:

 

  • Unclogs pores
  • Boosts collagen production 
  • Removes fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Aids in cell production giving you fresh new skin 
  • Evens discoloration 
  • Lightens dark spots 
  • Refines the surface of your skin
  • Naturally changes the look and feel of skin to more youthful skin 
  • Prolongs skin’s thickness and elasticity

Vitamin A needs to be accompanied with fat to be absorbed by the body. Healthy fats such as egg yolks, ghee (clarified butter), avocado, and extra virgin olive oil will allow maximum absorption. Some foods with carotenoids need to be cooked to extract their full nutrients like tomatoes. Tomatoes contain Lycopene (a form of carotenoid that makes tomatoes red) which helps boosts collagen and keeps the snap in the skins structure. It also fights off the oxidizing effect of UV rays by eliminating skin-aging free radicals. Sweet Potatoes contain 200% of the daily value of cartenoids! Carrots contain Beta-Carotene and they truly improve eyesight and protect against eye cancer. Some green fruits and vegetables (below) even have high percentages of Vitamin A that aid in fantastic skin.
