The leaves are turning, a chill is in the air and sweaters and boots are on your mind. Along with those cooler weather staples come thoughts of “comfort foods”. Did you know that a lot of fall favorites are great for your skin?
Yes – those fall favorites… Sweet Potatoes, Pumpkins and Butternut Squash are loaded with Beta-carotene which destroys free radicals, preventing damage to skin cells. The body converts beta-carotene to vitamin A, which fights signs of aging, while ensuring healthy bones, skin, and teeth. You can also swap those out for carrots, cantaloupe, or mangoes for a similar effect.
Another fall favorite is tomatoes. Tomatoes contain Lycopene which may help prevent sun damage. The potent antioxidant works best when cooked, so homemade marinara sauce and tomato soup are both great options. Who doesn’t love soup on a cool Fall day!
Blueberries – this delicious and low-profile berry was ranked number one in antioxidant activity by the U.S. Department of Agriculture when compared to 40 common fruits and vegetables. The antioxidants in blueberries protect you from premature aging, so add half a cup to your yogurt or cereal every day.
Of course, we saved the best for last! Delicious dark chocolate helps skin stay hydrated and protects skin from sun damage, and contrary to popular belief, chocolate does not cause acne. Before you make a mad dash for your favorite, however, keep in mind that the best kind of chocolate has a high flavanol content and should be at least 60 percent cacao.
