Take care of your skin and maintain a healthy glow with these 3 foods that help encourage your skin to maintain it’s natural beauty.
According to a blog article by Mind Body Green “pumpkin seeds get their power from both the beauty mineral, zinc, and essential fatty acids including omega 3, omega 6, and omega 9. Like hemp seeds, they help reduce inflammation in the body.” Adding them to smoothies or even eating them by themselves is a way to consume this powerful food.
Mind Body Green also mentions that Arugulla “is an excellent source of two of the keys to gorgeous skin: Vitamin A and sulfur. The chlorophyll in arugula is a potent detoxifier, too”
Likewise, Mind Body Green states that hemp seeds “are composed of a massive amount of protein, including the sulfur-bearing amino acids: methionine, cysteine, and cystine, which are used to build strong hair, nails, muscle, and skin.”
“They also have the ideal ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids (1:3), and even include omega 9, which are all strong antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is the cause of many of our skin woes, including blemishes and wrinkles, so adding hemp seeds to your diet can help reduce or prevent those skin issues.”
