So lets talk about these ingredients and how each one will support that beautiful skin of yours.
Pomegranates- (1) are rich in vitamin C, a nutrient quite important for skin health. They are also packed with antioxidants like proanthocyanidins and flavonoids that work great for the skin by delaying the signs of aging (like wrinkles). It also has been known for its anti-aging effects.
Carrots – (2) Aside from keeping your eyes healthy, carrots can also contribute to a healthy complexion. This is because vitamin A helps repair skin tissue and protects against the sun’s harsh rays
Raspberries– (3) Raspberries have 40% more antioxidant content than blueberries and strawberries. These antioxidants work great for your skin. They, first of all, prevent the damaging effects of the sun. Which also means they prevent redness if your skin is sensitive. The presence of vitamin C in raspberries makes them an ideal food to prevent skin cancer.

Water- (5) Your skin has a natural barrier that retains moisture, and if this barrier’s functions are disrupted, your skin may become dry and sensitive. When you neglect hydration, your skin can’t perform at its best, leading to premature aging and dry, sensitive skin. Another big benefit to drinking water is its ability to flush your system of toxins. This flushin keeps your skin clean, pushing out bacteria and reducing the risk of acne and other skin problems.
Isn’t it amazing how simple ingredients from mother earth are so powerful at assisting our bodies to thrive in a whole new way?? The more we get back to eating more whole clean ingredients the better our body will thrive.
