We all know that beauty products can help our skin look more radiant and healthy, but what about food?
You bet it can!
Nutrient dense foods are the #1 way to encourage healthier skin. They outperform a good jar of anti aging cream any day. While the majority of skincare works with the skins surface layer (the epidermis) to improve its texture and appearance, it can only do so much. In order for the skin to look healthy, youthful and radiant it needs to be nourished with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.
Food can work from within to nourish our cells and create the foundation for collagen, elastin, and moisture retention.
As we age our collagen production starts to slow down and more of it is required in adequate amounts from our daily intake of food.
By the age of thirty collagen production begins to decline by 1-2% yearly and by the age of forty we lose 10-20% of our collagen.
But there is good news!!
Every time we eat we have the ability to increase the beauty of our skin, hair, and nails by simply absorbing vital nutrients needed to repair tissues, build new collagen, and glow from within.
Let's face it all healthy food is good for our skin, however there are certain foods that are so nutrient dense they need a special SHOUT OUT!!
