Feed your FACE

October 12, 2012
keep your skin happy!

The term "you are what you eat" obviously is not something that can be taken too seriously. However, what you put it says a whole lot about what's going on with the outside of your body, even your face! Here is a list of things that everyone should be consuming in order to make sure that your largest organ is taken care of. Put down the junk food and start incorporating these into your regular diet!

Avocados have an abundance of b-complex vitamins and essential fatty oils. Almost 1/3 of your recommended B3 (Niacin) intake is in one of these lovely green veggies. Niacin is an anti-inflammatory and helps soothe skin! Try out this great recipe to get these into your regular routine!

Avocado Salad 

  • 2/3 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup corn, drained
  • 1/2 cup packaged shredded carrots, lightly packed
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup prepared chunky salsa
  • green onions, thinly sliced
  • 10 drops red pepper sauce
  • ripe, Fresh Hass Avocados, cut in half and seeded
  • small bunches of radish or alfalfa sprouts

  1. In a bowl, combine beans, corn, carrots, cilantro, salsa, green onion and red pepper sauce.
  2. Fill each avocado shell with 1/4 of bean mixture.
  3. Garnish with sprouts and serve

Mangoes are absolutely delicious and heavily contain Vitamin A! One mango contains almost 80% of your recommended amount. Vitamin A helps with free radical damages, so if you've been naughty this summer and bronzed your heart out- make sure you are stocking up on Mangoes! 

Flaxseed Oil is rich in omega 3s and great for your skin, but did you know that flaxseed oil is one of the best sources of this essential fatty acid? Leave the fishes alone and get your oil from here! 

Now that you've got three foods that will keep your skin and radiant (even in this crazy weather!) make sure to stock up! How do you use these three ingredients?
