Certain Ingredients For Your Thanksgiving Meal Can Make Your Skin Shine

fybc 11:21

Although professional facials are our forte here at FYBC, we are never opposed to a little DIY skin care. In fact, we have put a list together of Thanksgiving Day foods staples that are good for your skin. Who would have thought that your favorite Turkey Day meal is also a facial?

Cranberry

Not only are cranberries high in collagen-building vitamin C, they contain ellagic acid, which helps prevents wrinkles by blocking the formation of an enzyme that breaks down elastic tissue. So, coat your face with it in between meals or eat it with bread. Whichever way you choose to take advantage of the power of these tart berries, you are winning.

Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor and your dermatologist away. Apple extract is commonly found in anti-aging lotions. Why? Apple contains malic and mandelic acids which reduce skin discoloration and scarring.  

Pumpkin

We have talked about the positive effects of pumpkin before but in case you missed it, here is the scoop on the pumpkin. Pumpkin is a rich source of vitamin A, C, and E and contains essential fatty acids that keep your skin protected from free radicals.

Cinnamon

Just about every Thanksgiving meal contains cinnamon. It’s a wonderful spice that not only tastes amazing but it can improve your skin. Cinnamon helps fight acne by boosting circulation!

Thanksgiving leftovers are your best friend this holiday season. Be sure to try out a few of these ingredients and share your results with us!

Ways To Keep Your Skin In Check During the Holiday’s

FYBC 11:14

Champagne toasts, late nights with the family and your mom’s mashed potatoes! We can’t get enough of the holiday season! Although you (and your stomach) may be yearning for some holiday fun, your skin is not. Fight the post-Thanksgiving breakout by reading up on some tips to help your skin through this delicious and joyous holiday.

Travel

November and December are the busiest travel months of the year, as people are making their journeys home to the family. Whether you are flying, driving or taking the train home this year, keep in mind that traveling often causes your skin to lose its moisture. The mix of recycled air, the stress that comes with traveling and the lack of sleep can leave your skin looking dull and dry. The key is to stay hydrated with the help of a heavy moisturizer and by drinking water.

Food Consumption

Fatty and sugary foods almost always increase the chance of a breakout. If you are prone to acne, avoid greasy foods this holiday season and add foods that contain healthy oil such as nuts, salmon, and eggs. The healthy oil will keep your skin from breaking out and drying out.

Stress

The combination of increased stress and alcohol consumption can negatively affect your skin. That being said, don’t let your mom’s comment about your pumpkin recipe get under your skin. The clarity of our skin is often contingent on our emotional stability.

Lack of Sleep & Alcohol Intake

Getting enough sleep, especially while you are on vacation is imperative to keeping your skin looking fabulous. Without sleep, our skin cells have a harder time generating!

Let’s face it, alcohol is just apart of the holiday season. However, it would be a good idea to think twice before finishing off the second bottle of champagne. Alcohol dehydrates the body like none other so, alternate your cocktail with a little water here and there.
