Glowing skin starts from Within

Buttahbabes, I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “beauty starts from within”. It’s not something people just say - it’s really true. What you feed your body is just as important as what you’re putting on your body.

But the rest is up to you #buttahbabe! It’s time to start thinking about how what you’re eating is affecting your body. And just so you don’t feel like I’m calling you out, I’ll share my story with you.

Ever since I was a child, I have loved cheese. 

My mom often talks about how she would find little teeth marks in the blocks of cheddar cheese. No one had to ask who did it, they knew it was me. Fast forward 27 years later and I still love cheese...she just don’t love me. Or at least, she doesn’t love my face 😬 Any time I eat cheese, it’s almost an immediate flare up/break out on my face. 

So, I started thinking. If it’s doing this to your face, what kind of havoc is it wreaking in your body? As much as I love cheese, it’s just not worth it. And nowadays, it’s very easy to find or make cheese substitutes.

As we continue into fall, I want you to think about what you are feeding your body. Do you need to add some more fresh fruits and veggies to your diet? If the answer is yes, I strongly suggest you visit your local farmers market - not only will the produce be cheaper and fresher, but you’ll be supporting your local farmers. 

Be on the lookout for these fall fruits and veggies, all beneficial for your skin.

Carrots - carrots contain beta carotene nutrients (define) that convert to vitamin A once in your body. These nutrients help to repair skin tissues while also protecting skin from harmful radiation from the sun. Did I mention carrots can also help fight acne

Pumpkin seeds - Craving a pumpkin this year? Be sure to save the seeds! Pumpkin seeds are full of zinc - this stimulates cell growth and protects skin against infections. They also contain beta carotene nutrients, vitamins A, C and E. All of these combine together to help regulate oil production in skin to keep it looking fresh. 

Apples - Apples are rich antioxidants preventing skin cell damage. Most of these antioxidants are found in the skin of the apple, so no peeling! With vitamin C, it’s an easy way to get your daily dose of fiber. They also contain vitamin B, which helps fight skin irritants and acne. An apple a day can really help keep the doctor away!

Kale - Kale is packed with vitamins A, C and K - all working together to help your skin retain moisture and reduce signs of aging. Next time you’re cooking with kale, try massaging it with a little olive oil to break down some of the bitterness before actually cooking it (or using it for a salad). 

Brussel Sprouts - brussel sprouts (aka mini cabbages) are packed with vitamin C, which helps skin appear smoother and firmer. It can also help prevent dryness and sun spots. 

Cranberries - Did you know cranberries were qualified as a superfood due to its multiple health benefits? Raw cranberries alone are 90% water! And like brussel sprouts, they are packed with vitamin C. The antioxidants found in cranberries can also keep your skin looking radiant during the cooler months. 

Oranges - The natural oils found in oranges are known to help keep skin moisturized. Moisturized skin = smooth skin.
