Eat these for gorgeous skin
Cucumbers: Think of this veggie as a tall glass of water, but with a satisfying crunch. Hydration is essential to maintaining beautiful skin, and cucumbers happen to be made up of 96% water! Cucumbers also contain silica, a nutrient that aids your body in producing hyaluronic acid. This compound helps your cells to retain water so your skin appears plump and fresh.
Turkey: Swap out your usual cold weather comfort food for one featuring this heart-healthy meat. A 3 oz serving delivers just over a quarter of your daily zinc, a mineral that helps your body to churn out skin cells and protects against skin agers such as UV rays and pollution. If you’re wondering if that bowl of turkey chili has magic powers, the answer is yes, it does!
Get your Zzz’s
Are you getting your beauty sleep? Your body boosts blood flow to the skin while you snooze, which means you wake to a healthy glow. Skimp on sleep and your complexion can look dull. Getting enough rest per night is a key component to having a healthy, glowing complexion. So, hit the snooze button one more time for healthy skin!
