Eating clean and cooking green is your new beauty cream. Forget all of the oils and potions, you green beauty queen!
Beauty is an inside job. Greens are packed with beauty benefits like antioxidants and vitamin C. Antioxidants are also nature’s sunblock/beauty serum! They help to prevent free radical damage to your beautiful skin, which may also help to prevent wrinkles. The vitamin C in greens is essential for the formation of collagen. Collagen keeps your hair, skin, and nails strong and even helps keep your body flexible. Yoga, anyone?
Greens are naturally packed with massively powerful antioxidants (vitamin E, folic acid, lycopene, and alpha- and beta-carotene, and more). Antioxidants are substances that protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals. Studies consistently suggest that people whose diets are rich in antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables may have a lower risk of developing certain types of cancers. So eating more greens helps you look like a beauty queen and fight free radicals at the same time . . . smart and stunning, you are!
