Apricot Beauty Bowl

Apricot Beauty Bowl

There are many nourishing components food brings to having great skin: Vitamin A, C, E, and Antioxidants.

Apricots are a great source of Vitamin A, also known as retinol, which is key for cell growth.

Cauliflower contains Vitamin C, aka ascorbic acid, which is an antioxidant that helps tissue grow and repair itself.

Brazil nuts are known as the best source of selenium in the world. Selenium is an amazing antioxidant that protects cells from damage, neutralizes free radicals and other skin-damaging compounds before they can lead to wrinkles. Selenium is similar to Vitamin E and works with the Vitamin to regulate retinol levels, which is essential for healthy skin!

Collagen peptides contain amino acids which are an important building block for elasticity in the skin to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

Turmeric is fantastic for your skin because of its anti-inflammatory properties, which help to target your pores and calm your skin during breakouts.

Raw honey contains antioxidants called phenolic compounds, which is another way to help fight against free radicals and prevent your skin from aging!
