WHY ADDING GREENS TO YOUR DIET IS IMPORTANT FOR HEALTHY SKIN
As children, we often heard how important it was to eat our greens so we could be strong and healthy. But what they didn’t tell us was that eating green leafy vegetables would help our skin become happier and healthier.
Most leafy green vegetables contain Vitamin E, Folate, and Beta-carotene. These nutrients aid in helping the skin fight free radicals, renew and repair skin, and help produce and maintain new cells. Greens also contain Vitamin A which can help flush out toxins and fight against breakouts by helping control sebum production. Greens also help reduce inflammation and alkalize the body for less breakouts and happier skin.
It can be difficult getting in enough green veggies even as adults. Adding green veggies to each meal can be helpful in trying to increase your daily intake. Another way to add more green veggies to your diet is by adding them to your smoothies.
Here is the ultimate smoothie for healthy skin. Drink daily if your lifestyle allows:
