Let's talk skin
November 15, 2015
Did you know that November’s famous feasting holiday shares the month with another important celebration?
That’s right, folks, the eleventh month of the year is also recognized as National Healthy Skin Month!
And while you may be a tad more excited about the holiday that brings loads of pumpkin pie (among other delectable goodies) to your plate, you’ll be happy to know that you can also celebrate Healthy Skin Month by indulging in epicurean delights.
To keep your complexion sporting a delicious glow this winter, consider digging into generous helpings of “skin food” that contain the vitamins your skin is most hungry for: A, D, C & E.
The perfect recipe for beautiful skin – and a happy belly? Consider planning a Thanksgiving meal that incorporates foods rich in these key vitamins, and combine with a healthy skincare regimen that contains the same skin-enhancing ingredients.
