We've all heard it before... "you are what you eat". Consuming nutrient-rich, life-giving food creates health that radiates from the inside out. Instead of heading to the health and beauty section of your local pharmacy in search of beautiful, glowing skin, consider heading to the produce section of your local grocery store. Here you can admire the beauty and vibrancy of earth's bounty while stocking up on the foods that create a more beautiful, vibrant you! It's cost-effective, sustainable, delicious, and people will notice your glowing health. Check out this article to learn about 6 essential nutrients your skin will love, along with the foods that contain them. Also, don't forget to stay well hydrated. Adequate water intake (1/2 of your body weight in ounces per day) is of paramount importance when it comes to skin and overall health.
