29 Jun Skin Food
Let’s talk about skin food. What we put in your body plays a huge role in the appearance of our skin. Denise (owner and master esthetician) drinks a collagen and microgreens smoothie every morning that boosts skin health. So what exactly are microgreens and why do they benefit your skin?
Microgreens are young vegetable and herb plants that are harvested while only being a few centimeters tall. These youngsters contain all the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants needed to grow, but instead of using them up in the process, are picked leaving them for our maximum nutritional benefit, how cool? And we all have heard of collagen in the skincare world, so why not add it to your daily digestion? Collagen is a major component of skin and as we age we develop less, losing firmness, elasticity, and hydration. Taking collagen will promote the production of proteins that help structure our skin by adding plumpness and giving it a youthful glow. What we put in our body is just as important as what we put on our skin so be sure to replenish with delicious foods and supplements this summer.
