If there was going to be one time in your life when you were going to make nutrition a priority – take it from US! Do it before your wedding! No amount of makeup or facials or skin peels can account for the beautiful, glowing skin you get from eating well and of course, drinking plenty of water. Oh, and we know that you want to have that last night of freedom with your girlfriends – and that is all well and good, but plan it several weeks before the wedding day! The effects of one wild night can wreak havoc on your skin and take a few days to get back to normal.
What exactly are the best foods to eat? Here are our Top 6 Foods to feed your face fabulous!
Eggs (the yolks in particular) are filled with Vitamin A.
Vitamin A is an antioxidant that is essential for the growth of new skin cells. Have you every thought of slathering some raw eggs all over your face? No? Think again, it boosts collagen production and promotes skin cell turnover.
Eat your GREENS!
You know what they say, “A salad a day gets glowing skin on your wedding day!” Take a pass on the iceberg lettuce and replace it with spinach, romaine and kale. These leafy greens are all high in Vitamin B which increases the fatty acids in the skin and promotes exfoliation and firmness.
Just Grab an Orange!
It’s so easy! Oranges are a super healthy snack and they are filled with Vitamin C. The letter C in our vitamin dictionary is the building block for one of our favorite things: Collagen! Collagen is what gives skin elasticity (meaning no drooping!). It also helps with tone and structure
Skip the Steak and go for the Salmon instead
You might think that milk is the only place to get your Vitamin D, but think again! Milk is a great source of course, and along our travels we have definitely come across many people with a sensitivity to dairy, and salmon is a great alternative.
Pass the nuts, please!
Our love affair with Vitamin E is just filled with pure romance, because E does not disappoint. Almonds, dates, walnuts and other members of that nutty family are a wonderful source for Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that helps build and maintain healthy skin tissue (A.K.A. – GLOW).
