Skincare doesn’t just begin and end with our beauty rituals and products. We must seek to nourish our skin from within with nutrient-rich, hydrating, and cleansing foods that will enhance our glow. This salad with eight beauty foods is one of our favorite recipes that will help your skin look its best.
Spinach, quinoa, pumpkin seeds, and blueberries are four powerhouse foods that can promote skin health and radiance. These ingredients are filled with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can help promote collagen production and improve skin elasticity.
These ingredients combine to make a wholesome and satiating salad for the perfect midday lunch. So why not indulge in a dish that's both good for your body and your skin?
