Want Youthful, Glowing Skin? Raid Your Kitchen, NOT Your Bathroom Vanity

Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? Just like your heart, liver, and other organs, it requires proper care and nourishment.

While your favorite skincare products may be what you reach for to override the damage, it’s just as important (if not more so) to “pamper” the inside too.

Here are 5 of our favorite food/drink suggestions to incorporate into your daily meals and snacks, and watch your skin take on a youthful glow!

1). ARM YOURSELF WITH ANTIOXIDANTS Free radicals (like the kind formed from sun exposure, stress, and poor food choices) can damage the membrane of skin cells. Antioxidants and other nutrients in certain foods can protect the cell and may guard against premature aging.

2). FAVOR HEALTHY FATS The same inflammatory process that can harm our arteries and cause heart disease can harm skin cells too. Quality fats keep cell membranes healthy, which act as the passageway for nutrients to get in and waste products to get out of the cell.
