Growing Younger Skin
Our skin shows our health, our age and our stress levels pretty transparently. But fortunately, when we take care of our skin by monitoring what we put into our bodies and adjusting our lifestyles to include plenty of exercise, rest and stress reduction, it's easy to maintain that healthy skin glow. And superfoods loaded with potent antioxidants like vitamins C and E, essential fatty acids and protein can reduce the signs of aging, eliminate toxins and decrease stress levels to help us get—and keep—that golden glow.
Smoothie Secrets: Antioxidant Power
Tangy and tart Camu Powder and Goldenberries contain high levels of the antioxidant vitamin C, which not only helps to keep our cells strong and able to ward off disease, but also prevents and reduces wrinkles and fine lines by repairing connective tissue and supporting healthy collagen growth.
Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids found in Hemp Seeds are necessary for reducing inflammation, keeping skin cells strong and supple, and may help prevent sun damage. Hemp Seeds are also an excellent source of vitamin E and phenolic acid, powerful antioxidants that help to keep the skin glowing.
Additional sources of antioxidant rich foods include dark leafy greens like kale and spinach, berries, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocadoes and olives (especially cold-pressed olive oil).
