This New Year, don’t forget to give your skin some extra love. In addition to all of the great services offered at Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center, shake up your diet this season by including some of the following foods. These foods will specifically aid in helping your skin look and feel younger and more radiant over time.
Do you suffer from cystic acne or consistent breakouts? Your solution might come in the form of this green superfood—broccoli! Not only is broccoli rich in fiber but studies show it can help fix hormonal imbalances. Eat more broccoli by adding it to your morning smoothies or pressed juices. You can also sprinkle it over salads. A popular method is to steam it along with kale or cauliflower, drizzle on a little butter, then add a dash of salt.
Bone broth is an excellent source of collagen, which is integral to achieving skin vibrancy. Collagen is key to maintaining skin elasticity and creating a voluminous and supple appearance. It is also helpful in healing and repairing the gut lining. You can easily add more bone broth to your diet by using it in soups or stews. You can even swap it in for dishes that call for eggs or water like stuffings, casseroles, noodle dishes, or meat dishes.
Raw Cacao Powder
Chocolate in the raw is rich in flavanols. These are phytonutrients that have a demonstrated ability to fight against UV exposure and protect against the sun. In addition to eating cacao powder, you can also use it in face masks.
Avocados are a rich source of vitamin E and healthy fats, which are perfect for your skin. They add an antioxidant shield to your skin while acting as a yummy addition to your salads, smoothies, or pretty much anything.
