Most of us don’t think of their skin on Thanksgiving. They’re more concerned with crushing food and enjoying a delicious dessert spread than anything else. Perhaps you should give thanks for just how good some of the ingredients are for your skin.
While I’m a huge advocate for eating healthy 95% of the year, there are times when I like to indulge. Thanksgiving is one of those times that I bend the rules and eat what I want. You skin and stomach will both be thankful for that too. Here are some ingredients that you can plan on eating in order to improve your skin and enhance your holiday glow.
Top Thanksgiving Foods That Improve Your Skin
Break out your sweat pants and start prepping for Thanksgiving. It’s time to work on both you stomach filling and beautification through Thanksgiving treats. This list of foods will help improve your skin, no doubt about it. Forget worrying about counting calories and count vitamins instead.
One of the ingredients that pack a ton of vitamins is Pumpkin. This food contains a ton of vitamin B3 which assists with the production of ceramides and fatty acids. This is how you can keep your skin cells well hydrated which is super important if you want to look younger. It also helps reduce the presence of dark spots on your face.
I’m a huge fan of pecan pie and now I’ve got a reason to go in for second servings. These have a high amount of healthy fats and antioxidants. They’ve also got lots of zinc which can improve the condition of your hair and skin. Go to town and enjoy pecan pie all day long.
Forget using the store bought cranberry sauce this year. You’ve got a reason to make homemade cranberry sauce this year. The food is jam-packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, and fiber. Cranberry has the ability to fight off bacterial infections and we all know that bacteria build up is one of the reasons why acne forms. My mom actually makes a mean homemade cranberry sauce that I’m looking forward to diving into tomorrow.
If you’re a fan of sweet potato pie, then you’re luck because this is very good for you. I eat these almost every single day considering they’re a part of my ABC diet. There’s a high probability that I’ll be eating them this Thanksgiving as well. This food is filled with potassium, vitamin C, beta carotene and so many more ingredients I don’t even know where to begin.
I guess the bottom line is that you should not be worried about indulging one day of the year. If anything, this gives validation to go H.A.M. all day long this Thanksgiving. Gobble, gobble and eat up!
