Try this easy, delicious, and skin healthy recipe to get that glow
We’ve all heard that it’s important to eat fresh fruits and vegetables for our health, but having a diet heavy in fruits and veggies can also work wonders on your skin. Many fruits and vegetables are high in antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C, which all are important for preventing skin damage, supporting the growth of healthy gut bacteria, and boosting collagen production.
A great and easy way to get lots of fruits and veggies into your diet is by throwing them all together into a salad! Lean proteins, vitamin E, and selenium are also great nutrients for skin health, so add additional nuts, fish, or chicken breast for added benefits (these ingredients will also help you feel full much longer).
